Non-fat Greek Yogurt – Low Cholesterol Food

Posted on January 28, 2013 | by

Non-fat Greek yogurt is a creamy substitute to replace sour cream, cream cheese, and/or mayonnaise in your favorite Super Bowl party dip or dish.

In fact, a 6-ounce serving of plain Greek yogurt contains zero fat, about 15-20 grams of protein (equivalent to 2-3 ounces of meat), and 20% of your daily recommended calcium intake!

  1. I remembered the last meal I had with my grandma and since she had very high cholesterol and she was a very active member of Pinterest community 🙂 she made this meal and I enjoyed it. I usually don’t like Greek yogurt when served aside but combined with this meal, it was perfect!
