Plain yogurt = *gag*... Help!



Recommended Posts

I used kefir during my all liquid stage. It was helpful in breaking up those days when I couldn't stand another sweet Protein Shake.< /p>

I started eating clean as an act of self preservation. My allergies were out of control and I spent more time fighting and recuperating from allergy attacks than out and enjoying life. I also became a fat vegetarian.

It's taken me a long time but I follow really basic rules:

  • Bring a magnifying glass with you to the market
  • Anything that says,'light, fat free, diet' or similar is either lying or fake and heavily processed.
  • Try to buy foods that have 10 ingredients or less and/or do not require a science degree to understand the ingredients.
  • Avoid most foods that come in a box or a can.
  • Frozen foods with no additives are your friend.

I always suggest for people to look into the whole 30.. no processed, no junk, no sugar or grains.. you will really figure out that there are things we shouldn't be eating!

Kefir is one thing that people can try if they just hate yogurt, I do not suggest eating it without flavoring it, it has all the same benefits of yogurt and typically 11+ grams of Protein per cup.

I love greek yogurt.. and hate kefir.. *shudder*

I prefer to keep it simple and I'm not anti-grain. These were not items that triggered my allergies. I am just particular about which grains I eat and what quantity of grain I eat. Farro and quinoa are staples for me.

I can't deal with yogurt at all - it makes me gag! I've tried regular and greek; plain and flavored; regular and lite; fruit on the bottom; mixed with fruit; mixed with flavorings - you name it. It's weird - I LOVE sour cream and have no problem eating that but I just can't do yogurt. Tried it both pre- and post-surgery - YUK!! I wish I could since it would be another Protein source for me. :)

In fact here's a handy chart full of alternative Protein sources.

Thanks for posting the chart, @@BLERDgirl! Very useful.

The only way I can eat plain greek yogurt is by adding canned plain pineapple (diced, crushed, etc.) with a little bit of splenda. The pineapple really supresses the flavor of the yogurt. Then, when I want I add blueberries, strawberries, etc. I actually enjoy greek yogurt this way!

I mix mine with honey and a scoop of chocolate Protein powder... Not sure if it is an acquired taste but I like it! Plain Greek yogurt is also a good substitution for sour cream or mayo.

I've heard that you can use yogurt in place of sour cream and mayo but have been scared to try it. Could you mix tuna fish with yogurt? How would that taste? I heard someone else suggest mixing tuna with cottage cheese. Anyone tried these?

I often use plain, greek yogurt instead of mayo and you can't taste the difference. I also use it instead of sour cream. I like the taste.

@@esskay77 I've mixed it in tuna and it's good. I've used it as sour cream, and I've used it in place of milk and creams in Soups and such as well. =)

I use it it place of sour cream... Mix it with hidden valley ranch powder to make dip or dressing if I thin it out with milk. Put it on top of chili, on a quesadilla with a low carb tortilla, etc. Haven't tried it with tuna...I figure I am eating so little I just use real mayo with that.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
