At the beginning of my pregnancy - I stocked up on yogurt for breakfast and I was so sick that the yogurt seemed to make it worse so I banned it from our kitchen.
But now I want to get more calcium in my body and I'm trying to eat healthy (except for the oatmeal cream pie(s) I just scarfed down) so I got some new yogurt. I got Stonyfield Greek Yogurt. It has 0 fat grams but 13 grams of protein. It's like eating meat. Where was this when I was on the Atkins diet all 25 times? It's really thick and creamy and keeps me from having to find another meal 10 minutes later.
I also found this great recipe for Curried Turkey Salad and I am so making this in the next week.
1 1/4 cup Plain Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt
1 Tbs. curry powder
4 cups cooked turkey, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/3 cup scallions, finely chopped
2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
3/4 cup slivered almonds, or walnuts, toasted
In a large bowl, combine the yogurt and curry powder. Add the turkey, scallions, grapes and almonds. Toss together to coat. Serve chilled.
I also discovered there is special yogurt for pregnant and nursing women and for babies. Anything to try to make Harper healthy and smart. :-) It's organic and has all those things that are good for babies like folic acid and DHA.
I happen to have two coupons for free yogurt and I will send them to you along with some more recipes in the mail if you will leave me a comment on this post. If you do not have a blog - PLEASE leave me your e-mail address so I can contact you. I want you to be able to try the yogurt for free. Or you could just buy some for yourself. :-) I'll draw a name on Friday morning.
P.S. This has been a week that I'm ready to have over with. We have gotten so much bad news this week. One thing after another. If it's not the fact that our country is about to go into another "great depression", it's a friend I used to work with calling me and crying because her grandchild is going to be born tomorrow at 28 weeks because the baby's mother has pre-clampsia and toxemia, or another friend's dad was diagnosed with a brain tumor. But I'm so glad to share a little good news because my precious friend Jamie is announcing today that she is having her third child. She is the best mother in the world and I'm THRILLED for her. I've been waiting and waiting for her to tell so I could move her to my "baby momma" list. Jamie - go get you some of that pregnancy yogurt! :-)
