A couple of years ago, when greek yogurt was becoming popular, I wondered to myself, “what’s the difference between greek yogurt and regular yogurt?”
Besides typically being unsweetened, greek yogurt is strained more than regular yogurt, which removes excess liquid whey. This leaves the yogurt much thicker, and more nutritionally dense than regular yogurt. Greek yogurt has significantly more protein than it’s counterpart.
Due to the straining process, much of the whey from the yogurt is removed, leaving mostly casein protein as the protein in yogurt. Casein is a slower digesting protein than whey, so it’s a good pre-bedtime snack food.
My favorite kind is Wallaby’s greek yogurt. It tastes much smoother than the other ones out there and is quite tasty just by itself. Add some fruit for a little sweetness and you are good.
Recipe of the Week
10 minute caramelized onions
I love caramelized onions. I never knew how to really make them properly. I thought the best way was to cook them slowly. Well, mine always ended up burned and I usually had to throw them out. That all changed once I saw this video:
This is a great quick and easy way to caramelize onions. I like to splash in some balsamic vinegar in the end to give the onions a nice tangy flavor.
All of Jacob Burton’s videos are great to watch. His channel is essentially a cooking school on youtube.
