- Indian lamb curry with spinach
- green salad with peppers and cucumbers
- Brussels sprouts
- vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
I still can't stand plain yogurt so I chose vanilla flavored Chobani, There are 17 grams of sugar for an 8 oz. serving. I only had about 4 oz. in my container for lunch. Oh! I finally looked up the conversion from grams to teaspoons. Nobody actually weighs anything in grams in a regular kitchen so I had to know how much sugar I would I have to put in my yogurt or whatever to make it taste as sweet as it is when the major food manufacturer makes it. Anyway, it turns out that 1 teaspoon is about 4 grams. That means I would have to put at least 2 teaspoons of sugar into plain Greek yogurt to make it taste sweet enough. Honestly, that's not that bad to me. I put 2 teaspoons of sugar in my black tea with milk. I'm sure things like Coke and Snapple have a zillion grams of sugar (i.e., a quarter of a zillion teaspoons of sugar). But 2-4 teaspoons of sugar for a "dessert" type treat seems pretty reasonable to me.
Have a great weekend!
