Our Favorite Yogurts

FITNESS staffers eat a lot of yogurt. We chose our three favorites using the nutrition criteria on page 4 and, most important, our taste buds.

Chobani Honey 0% Greek Yogurt

Supremely rich and creamy yet completely fat-free. A swirl of honey gives it just the right amount of sweetness.

Nutrition facts per 6-ounce container: 150 calories, 16g protein, 20g carbohydrate, 0g fat (0g saturated), 0g fiber

Organic Valley Plain Lowfat Yogurt

It's thick enough to add to a smoothie but thin enough to drink straight from the container -- er, glass. Also comes in vanilla and mixed berry.

Nutrition facts per 8-ounce serving (plain): 110 calories, 8g protein, 13g carbohydrate, 2.5g fat (1.5g saturated), 2g fiber

YoCrunch 100 Calorie Packs Vanilla with Chocolate Chip Cookie Pieces

The perfect mini snack, it contains Truvia, a sweetener made from the stevia plant, instead of aspartame or Splenda.

Nutrition facts per 3.75-ounce container: 100 calories, 3g protein, 21g carbohydrate, 2g fat (1g saturated), 0g fiber

I have also heard about the benefits of eating yogurt. It can reduce gum disease because of the lactic acid. This is why I try to have yogurt at home at all times.

Talking about eating healthy, cooking healthy is also very important. When cooked with metal or ceramic ware there is always risk of metal or chemicals getting into our food. I found a way to go round it and cook healthy with clay pots. I got mine from MEC pure clay cookware and tried to prepare yogurt at home, it tasted better and I could immediately see the difference
