Greek yoghourt

The Greek or strained yoghourt is different from the regular because it is a creamy, rich yoghourt with less sugar, more carbs and a tart taste. It is a nutritious snack that can benefit your health in many ways. A plain cup of non-fat Greek yoghourt includes vitamins and other nutrients, such as minerals and protein.

Probiotics are healthy bacteria that keep you regular and happy, decreasing stomach issues, calcium helps your vital organs to function properly, while the vitamin B-12 is essential for your red blood cells, your brain and the DNA synthesis. Potassium lowers the blood pressure and iodine is important for proper thyroid function.
