Greek Yogurt

Guys, can we take a minute to talk about greek yogurt.  For the longest time (which is about a year), I have been trying to enjoy the stuff.  All the trendiest people rave about it, and I felt like I was missing out on something of great cultural significance.  So I went ahead and bought a Chobani honey greek yogurt.  It was gross.  I didn't like the texture, I didn't like the flavor, I didn't like the way it felt as though it was sucking all the moisture out of my mouth.  I despised everything about it. I ended up throwing it away after only two spoonfuls.  Gross.

I tried about three more times over the year I mentioned previously, each time getting the honey flavored Chobani and each time hating it and throwing it out.  What a waste!  A few weeks ago I happened to mention this to my lady friends one night and they all simultaneously flipped out on me.  Greek yogurt is the best, they said.  The honey one is gross but all the rest are amazing, they said.  I had chosen the honey because I hate yogurt with fruit on the bottom, but I decided I would suck it up.  For science.  So I resolved to try this thing again.  I went to the store the next day and bought a pomegranate Chobani.

It was as though angels were singing in my mouth.  It was smooth and creamy and flavorful and altogether divine.  And it was filling!  And it was only 140 calories!  And it had 13 grams of protein (I have a really hard time eating the recommended amount of protein in a day and have been trying to find ways to consume more without having to take supplements)!  My life is changed!

I've also tried pineapple, lemon, mango, and blood orange and they were all equally wonderful.  All but the lemon have chunks of fruit, and I don't mind a bit.  I don't know if this is because I am an adult now and have lightened up a bit on my texture aversion problems or if it is just so delicious that I am willing overlook my textural discomfort.  Regardless, I am thoroughly enjoying greek yogurt now and I want the world to know.
