Reader Appreciation Month and Giveaway #4 (Greek Yogurt)

Yum

I am a Greek yogurt devotee. I talk a lot on this blog about foods I love, and I know I’ve given a little air time already to Greek yogurt, but I always happy to give it another shout out. It was a life-saving snack when I was pregnant and had gestational diabetes, and it’s become a staple in my low carb, gluten free baking repertoire.  It adds moisture to cakes and muffins, just like regular yogurt.  But it also does something a lot more.  Gluten is a protein, and in it’s absence, other proteins are needed to give a baked good structure.  Greek yogurt has a remarkable amount of protein, and I’ve found it immensely useful in my baking.  I always, always have some Greek yogurt on hand, either for baking or for plain old eating. 

A few months ago, I had the chance to review the new Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt and I instantly became a fan.  It was rich and creamy, and I soon realized why I liked it so much…it wasn’t fat free!  It was made with 2% milk and I personally give that a big thumbs up.  Our society focuses far too much on fat free and the truth is….that isn’t good for you.  I am not big on proselytizing about a low carb diet, because I feel that everyone has to come to it on their own.  But with all the reading and research I have done on my own, I have come to believe that fat is not the issue here.  Carbs are.  So I applaud Wallaby for bucking the trend and not going completely fat free with their yogurt.

I liked it so much, I asked them to be a part of my month-long Birthday/Blogiversary celebrations and they agreed.  I have, in my hot little hands, 15 coupons for FREE cups of Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt.  I will be choosing 3 winners this time, each of whom will receive 5 coupons so that they can try every flavour.  Personally, I say just get the plain and add your own berries or toppings.  But hey, once they leave my hands, you may choose to do with them as you wish!

I also have another fantastic recipe coming up using Greek yogurt.  I can’t post it today because I haven’t managed to get any photos yet, but it was a big old experiment and it worked out amazingly well.  I may get it up over the weekend or it may have to wait until Monday.  But stay tuned for that.

And now…

    I am new to Greek yogurt and I'm a total convert! I mostly eat it as a snack, but I also like it mixed with Kashi and fruit for breakfast. Yummy.

    Great post! More and more I have been using it not only in my low carb baking but also to replace a lot of the sour cream and mayo we used to use. I love that it's so low in carbs, filled with probiotics and having been through cancer treatments this past few months with tons of steroids and antibiotics, I need all the gut help I can find! Love your blog girl!

    I love plain Greek Yogurt with a bit of honey and vanilla added, with fresh sweet fruit – it is just a heavenly and simple snack.
