I am not an egg eater, but sometimes I crave salty meals instead of my traditional fresh fruit and Chobani yogurt breakfast. Here is what I made today and it was YUMMY!
Tablespoon of Wickles Pepper Relish
1/2 Teaspoon of Low-Fat Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread
A Few Slices of Onion
1 Sweet Peppers
1 La Tortilla Low-Carb (High-Protein) Wrap
Top with a Dollop of Chobani Yogurt
Add some jalapenos to spice it up even more!

It’s easy to rack up the calories when you are cooking. Creams, oils, butter, dressings, dips, toppings and condiments are rarely healthy and almost always high in calories and/or fat. However, we can still enjoy our saucy extras without all those extra healthy calories if we just think outside the box – or container cup, I should say.
Greek Yogurt is not only a great snack, it is great for cooking and baking too. Every fit household should have a big tub of Chobani plain Greek yogurt in their fridge ready to enhance your favorite recipes – without enhancing your waistline!
Use Chobani in any recipe that calls for high-fat ingredients like heavy cream, mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, buttermilk – and even oil! Experiment with using it to thicken salad dressings, soup and sauces. If you aren’t creative, then visit the Chobani website and check out their killer recipes. Not only do they have the recipe, the fitness-conscience company has the nutritional information posted right there on their site! So no excuses calorie counters!

When Chobani hit shelves here locally, the news quickly spread around the gym. This healthy snack was not only delicious, but it was higher in protein than regular yogurt. That’s why we literally have a whole drawer dedicated to it in our refrigerator. We actually eat so much of it, we have an overflow in our 2nd fridge in the garage.
There really aren’t a lot of snacks to choose from that are naturally high in protein. Before Chobani yogurt, the closest thing we could come to was cottage cheese. And, if you are like me, there is no way anyone is getting that lumpy mess down my throat. I just can’t get over the texture.
Then Chobani came and saved the day. Before Chobani I was eating regular yogurt, which can have double the carbs as greek yogurt, especially if you get the kind with fruit in it. It also had practically half the protein Chobani has. For a girl who’s not a big meat eater, the more protein I can get the better.
Why Eat Chobani? Well, for my fitness peeps, eating high-protein snacks, like Chobani (and Designer Whey bars, my other favorite high-protein snack), means preserving muscle and giving your body what it needs to repair muscle after hard workouts. For my non-workout folks, it means preventing muscle loss, which is even more important as we age.
This is why there was no surprise Chobani sponsored for the Olympics. What a perfect FIT! (pun intended!) They naturally power people every single day!
Way to go Chobani! Thank you for powering me – and Team USA!
