If Tony the Tiger were still around, he'd be eating Greek yogurt.Despite myriad TV commercials showing women deriving almost sexual pleasure from eating a spoonful of yogurt, I was never a fan. Just didn't care for the tangy notes or artificial flavors.
It seemed like another Madison Avenue conspiracy to trick women into thinking they were eating something amazing instead of some sick tasting milk that was left out of the fridge too long.
Not surprisingly, yogurt commercial parodies began popping up on the Internet. Like this one. And this one.
Like the little boy in "The Emperor's New Clothes," comedians figured out that most women don't really get that excited about yogurt. They eat it because it's fast and convenient and supposedly good for their diets.

The key to doing Greek yogurt right is to doctor it up yourself. Don't be putting candy in it and think you're eating healthy. Fresh fruit, nuts and a hint of sweetener (I use honey to keep it real) enrich its nutritional profile and balance out the protein with just the right amount of carbs and fat.
