Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt (Review)

During my training (race reports) I use a number of supplements to fill the gaps in my nutrition, but real food is where its at. With large quantities of gluten laden foods now out of the picture for me, due to allergies, I've shifted somewhat in the direction of lean, healthy protein.

To be perfectly honest, I've never been much of a yogurt fan. The fact that dairy used to give me digestive problems probably had something to do with that.

These days dairy, in moderation, bears no negative effects, and so in my pursuit of healthy, lean muscle building protein Dannon Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt (vanilla) has become part of my weekly grocery list.

At close to $6 per quart, Dannon Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt isn't cheap by my standards (and I'll certainly be shopping around for generic alternatives), but at 15 grams of protein per 5 ounces, its one of the more potent, real-food, sources for protein outside of relying on meat.

And it just so happens that that its pretty damn tasty too. Thick, creamy, and not too sweet (the vanilla, at least). I like to eat it right out of the container, just a couple spoonfuls at a time to stave off hunger anytime my belly growls between meals.
