There are so many reasons to stuff your piehole with lowfat or non-fat Greek yogurt. It has twice the protein as normal yogurt, which means you stay fuller for much longer. It's loaded with probiotics-- all those good bacteria you keep hearing about-- which means that your gut stays your friend even through tough times of grease and spice. But the best reason of all to eat Greek yogurt? It's darn tasty.

Most Greek yogurts come with the sweet stuff. We'll show you how to make a guilt-free, incredibly healthy, and all-around delicious Greek yogurt recipe to get you through your mid-day. Have a big bowl of this for lunch, or a small bowl as a snack when the 3 PM doldrums set in.

1. Choose your Greek yogurt.

When it comes to all the worthy brands on the market, it's really hard to pick one. Granted, people are going to have access to different local brands, and if you can find one that works for you, I say go for it. But for the rest of us, it comes down to Fage and Chobani. And granted, we probably wouldn't have a Greek yogurt craze if it weren't for Fage, but Chobani does it so much better. It's a deeper, richer flavor. Even the low-fat Chobani trumps the regular fat Fage. That's about the highest praise we can give anything.

2. Choose your herbs and vegetables.

Let's keep this simple: organic tomatoes, cucumber, mint, and dill.

Chop up a handful of cucumber, half an organic tomato, a half-handful of mint, and a half-handful of dill. Mix them together in a bowl, and add a squirt of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of pepper.

3. Combine and eat.

Combine the fruits and vegetables with a cup of the Greek yogurt. Serve with a side of sliced kiwi, for the ultimate in appetite-curbing sustenance.
