Yoghurt - the superfood

You know those people who over analyse commercials. "I like that ad, it represents the product, desired brand and has a clear CTA." or "I hate that ad, it makes no sense and I couldn't tell you what the product even is."

I'm going to let you in on a secret, I'm one of those people. I've driven many housemates crazy. I've also driven many housemates to start analysing commercials themselves.

So the other night it dawned on me, all the commercials about yoghurt are about the sweet variety - there are barely any about Greek yoghurt. They focus on low fat sweet yoghurt, 'a great snack that helps you stay healthy.'


However it is the traditional Greek yoghurt that is considered a superfood. Recently I read an article on health.com - this article mentions a number of health benefits associated with eating Greek yoghurt. These benefits include lowering bloodpressure, improving digestion, building stronger bones, improving lactose intolerance, enhancing immunity and even helping with weight loss.

Don't get me wrong, if you eat Greek yoghurt with a fried mars bar, you will put on weight. However replacing cream with low fat Greek yoghurt in a pasta dish will reduce the calories. I do that and it tastes amazing! Give it a try sometime. Just add a tablespoon or two to a tomato based pasta sauce and it will lift the taste to a whole new level.

So there you have it, Greek yoghurt makes food taste amazing and is healthy too - a win win situation!!

Just a little disclaimer - I'm not a health care professional :-)
