I guess I’m of the “I’d rather have a really good treat rarely instead of a pale imitation often” persuasion. Comparing TJ’s domestic full fat version to Fage’s Total imported from Greece, I prefer the the trader Joe’s.

Abby, no argument the full fat greek yogurt is the most delicious. I agree Trader Joe’s brand is fab. I usit it this to replace sour cream, creme fraiche, double cream, etc all the time in recipes.
For everyday breakfast or snack for a dieter, the no-fat version of greek yogurt is pretty healthy, combining low fat and low -cal with a lower-carb, higher protein ratio than ordinary yogurt and still much nicer than ordinary plain yogurt, and more filling in addition to being more delicious.

Fat is flavor. No way around it. Eat everything in moderation and enjoy yourself, because you only go around once. If you’re getting chunky, eat less and move around more. That’s my simple plan.
