Aloha! Today is Thursday – 04/21/11
In effort to help you get in SHAPE FOR SUMMER, I wanted to give you a Fit Food Challenge for the Day. Getting in shape FAST means going the extra steps to cutting fattening calories and replacing them with more nutrient dense options.
Here is an easy switch that will cut unnecessary fat and calories from your diet
and give you more protein.
Today’s Fit Food Challenge is: REPLACE MAYONNAISE WITH NON FAT GREEK YOGURT
Replace Fattening Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt. I have been doing this for over 20 years. I use it in tuna salad, egg salad, basically in any recipe that calls for mayonnaise. I also use it in place of sour cream. It is very creamy and is loaded with protein.
Why? Greek Yogurt has about the same consistancy and is loaded with good for you protein. Take a look at the comparison nutritional breakdown of 1 cup of mayo vs. 1 cup nonfat greek yogurt. Shocking.
Check this out:
1 cup non fat yogurt you get 0 grams fat, 130 calories and 23 grams protein
1 cup regular mayonnaise? Are you sitting down? 77 grams of fat, 769 calories and 2 grams protein.
