Cooking With Greek Yogurt

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry that it has been so long since my last post; I’ve been all over the place lately! But, now that I am back in the swing of things, I am super excited to share a healthy little secret with you: Greek yogurt.

Well, as you all know, I’m a huge fan of healthy food that tastes unhealthy. In fact, it’s the only kind of healthy food I’ll eat. So, when I heard about the art of cooking with Greek yogurt, I was skeptical to say the least.

Simple Substitutions
Okay, I know you’re probably thinking that you know all about using it in place of traditional yogurt, and you’re totally right, but did you know that Greek yogurt can be used to create a mouthwatering cheesy pasta dish?! Didn’t think so… But, you heard me right! Simply swap in Greek yogurt with your favorite seasonings in place of a calorie packed cream or Alfredo sauce, and you’ve got yourself a delicious substitution that nobody will even notice.

How unhealthy does this healthy Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo look? ;-)
To try out this healthy cooking phenomenon for myself, I gave it the ultimate test: I made Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo for Daniel and I to have for dinner. As he was approaching the stove top for seconds, I decided to let him in on my Greek yogurt secret. He had no idea!
