The Rise of the Frozen Yogurt

And now, a word from Lauren Marek about the surge of frozen yogurt shops sweeping the nation. See below for a bio about Ms. Marek.

FRO-YO. It's all the latest craze. These frozen yogurt are popping up left and right, but is it worth all the hype? Is frozen yogurt really a good alternative to ice cream?

These shops are tempting to say the least. With a plethora of toppings and multiple flavor varieties of yogurt, it's hard to believe the nutritional claims that they all hold. Believe it or not, this craze actually IS worth trying! Most frozen yogurt contains only about 20 calories per ounce and are fat free. Top them to your desire with heart healthy fresh fruits for a great fiber and vitamin kick, or top your yogurt with nuts to add protein to help fill you up. Sound too good to be true? Frozen yogurt also contains the same healthy digestive-aiding bacteria as regular yogurt! How does this stack up to ice cream? Ice cream has over twice the calories of frozen yogurt, and many have over 15 grams of fat per cup! So next time you pass a tempting fro-yo store, stop and treat yourself to a great tasting, healthy cup of yogurt!

Lauren Marek is a recent graduate from the University of Oklahoma and has a degree in nutritional sciences. She is now working as a registered dietitian at a large metropolitan hospital in Dallas, TX. Lauren is very passionate about nutrition, and in her free time loves to cook, read about nutrition, and walk on the beautiful Katy Trail. She contacted me earlier this summer and agreed to guest blog on Comment and let her know what you think about her post!
