On Not Reading the Label

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Yesterday morning my husband mentioned that it had been a while since we had baked potatoes for dinner so I said I'd pick some up on my way home. We put some sour cream, shredded cheese and black beans on top and have a side salad. I decided to get a small container of yogurt to try on mine instead of the sour cream. EVERYBODY knows that yogurt is healthier, right? Boy, was I shocked when I looked at the containers AFTER I got them home. I got Greek yogurt (they didn't have a cup container of regular unflavored yogurt) and light sour cream and the fat and calorie content surprised me. The yogurt had far more of both than the light sour cream! Next time I read the label while I'm in the store!

I also want to check out the dietary information for the regular yogurt versus the light sour cream. Maybe the Greek yogurt was what threw things off and I'll have better luck next time with the substitution.

    Yeah, I read those yogurt labels religiously. I no longer even bother with Yoplait. I like the Fage 0% yogurt (surprisingly, still tasty at 0%) when I'm at a larger store. Or I get Pavel's European Yogurt. Otherwise, I love getting the 2% or the 0% Trader Joe's Greek Yogurt, plain.

    Mmm, baked potatoes sound yummy. I have some purple potatoes left, I should bake them up.

    You would think that the yogurt would have been healthier.
