Being one who dislikes eating meat protein has been a major problem for me. All I have found is eggs, peanut butter, quineoa, cheese, & now Greek yogurt. Costco had some for try so I did and to my surprise it isn't bad even by itself. It has 20 grams of fat, 9g of carbs, 3g fiber, and 2g sugar. The container I had has three servings in it, about the size of a cup of yogurt. Take awhile to figure how to adjust for it BG wise but so far things look promising.

I also love greek yogurt, it's creamy and has a great texture to it. It tastes so good I normally don't add anything to it.

I love Greek yogurt. It is so much tastier than the other kind.

Greek yogurt is so tasty and seems like a dessert for me! Main reason I started eating this was for the major protein in it…works for me!

I always thought the flavored variety was too many carbs but I obviously need to read the package!

I kept seeing people say the flavor is better and it is as long as its flavored but unsweetened is very sharp to taste. I have to put fruit in that

I usually put some fruit slices into the Greek yogurt that I eat. It cuts the sharpness of the taste. Most Greek yogurt has 15g of protein per serving which is excellent.

I also hear 1/2 cup of Tofu or 4oz has 10g of protein. I have eaten some really good veggie stirfrys with Tofu. You season it as if it were meat. I don't make it myself since I am a meat eater but have bought some Tofu dinners at the food bar in Whole Foods Market.

Red and Black beans are also good sources of protein.

I agree, Tofu can be excellent. It has the tendency to take on the flavors of whatever it is cooked with. I also us it in vege stirfrys and a tuna tofu casserole. Definitely a versatile food.
