Fage Fage Fage
Not sure what this is? Well first of all it’s pronounced Fa -Yay. It’s an incredible Greek yogurt that you can most likely find in your grocery store. It has turned into my go to snack. It has a rich and creamy texture to it. Although it comes it many flavors I choose the plain 0%. You will save about 40 calories per serving compared to the 2%. They also have flavors but why not add in fresh natural toppings of your own. I have mixed in honey, sugar free jelly, and fresh fruit such as blueberries and raspberries. Really whatever you feel like is a good idea. You can get a large container but I recommend the individual ones. They are 6 ounces. It is a predetermined amount for your snack. This eliminates mindless snacking. This way you know exactly how much you are going to eat. That is a good tip for snacking in general. For example, don’t eat out of a large container. Instead take out your pre-planned amount and put it into a smaller serving bowl. You will be less likely to go back when the bag has already been put away. The individual size Fage 0% plain has 90 calories. It also packs a full 15 grams of protein to only 7 grams of sugar. The protein will help you feel fuller longer. Add in a tablespoon of organic honey and about 10 blueberries and you are looking at 150 calories. Not bad for a night time snack.
