Daily Tip 4: Substitute Greek Yogurt for Sour Cream


MMMmmmm baked potatoes, tacos, burritos, and chili – Some of many foods that just don’t taste right without sour cream. Unfortunately, sour cream is high in saturated fat and Calories so it’s probably something that you have to cut back on if you want to lose a few pounds.

Fat-free plain Greek yogurt is an awesome alternative that’s packed with protein and calcium! You get all the taste and filling protein without all the saturated fats and Calories. In fact, 2 tbsp of Greek Yogurt only has about 15 Calories – about 3 times fewer Calories than sour cream. Greek yogurt is amazing, and I’ve been on a bit of a kick lately. It can be used in equal amounts to replace sour cream on foods and in recipes because of its similar consistency and taste. You can also make ranch out of it, see here.
