In keeping with the “Snack Food” theme I’ve got going on…

I just discovered the most awesome thing. I’m claiming it as my own “invention” and passing it on, because as I sit here eating it, I’m enjoying the pure pleasure of a newly discovered treat that’s blowing my mind, man!

This weekend while I was out, I grabbed a large container of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt. Now, this is plain, unsweetened… (did I mention plain?) Greek Yogurt. I loved it because a frickin’ CUP of this shit packs about 20 grams of protein, zero fat, and only 120 calories. We’re talking good shit here. But, like you, I was a little concerned about the “plain” part. So I had a kind of “stroke of genius” (or perhaps simply a stroke) and thought, “why can’t I make my own vanilla yogurt?”.

I know, right? Like I said, genius.

So last night, as I was putting together my lunch, I decided to measure out a big ol’ cup of this stuff, add a few drops of vanilla, and a tablespoon of clover honey. Stir, place in refrigerator, and I’m good to go.

But that’s not all.

Pineapples are cheap as hell right now. I’m talking a fresh, whole pineapple for like, $2 if you look around. So naturally, when I saw ’em, I grabbed one, sliced and diced it all up, and put it in a handy little tupperware container, 2 cups at a time.

So what does the kid do? Why, he tosses all that delicious naturally wonderful shit into a big ol’ container and stirs it all up. The result? Only the greatest single snack in the history of snacks. I’m telling you, I could eat this 24/7… and until the pineapple runs out, I just might.

What’s the final tally?  Well look no further, here’s the rundown:
329 calories
21.73 grams of protein
4.3 grams of fiber
64.3 grams of carbs
.37 grams of fat (yes… that’s 1/3rd of 1 gram for 329 calories)
89 milligrams of sodium

I told you. Run, don’t walk and get yourself some Plain Yogurt, Vanilla, Honey, and Pineapple. You’ll thank me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some gorging to do…
