Does your morning smoothie ever leave you feeling hungry? Try beefing it up with Greek yogurt!
Greek yogurt is one of our favorite sources of protein because of all of the amazing nutrients it provides. Here are some reasons we love Greek yogurt, and why we think you should love it too!
Benefits of Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is good for your gut. Yogurt is full of probiotics that will help improve your gut health, which in turn will improve your overall health in so many ways!
Greek yogurt improves bone health. Not only is it full of protein, Greek yogurt is also filled with calcium that will help improve your bone health and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Greek yogurt is very satiating. Because it is high in protein, Greek yogurt will leave you feeling satiated and full while still remaining low in calories. Cut your mid-morning snack by filling up on Greek yogurt for breakfast!
Greek yogurt is lower in sugar than regular yogurt. In the straining process needed to make Greek yogurt, whey is removed, which also removes much of the sugar in the yogurt.
So the next time your stomach is rumbling and you’re looking for a morning breakfast that will keep you full, try adding Greek yogurt to your Ready to Thrive! Smoothie! The result? A thick, creamy, and healthy way to start the day!
