Note: Greek yogurt and cow’s milk pack protein, but if you don’t do dairy, substitute 1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) of your favorite alternative milk. To make sure you’re still getting enough protein, add an extra 10 grams of protein with 100-percent pure protein powder.

  • Why does it always have to be (half fat) Greek yogurt?
    As far as I know that one is even more fattier than a regular half fat yogurt.
    So why putting the extra calories?

    • Is there some adjustment for the individual? Say, a 100 lb. woman compared to a 200 lb. man? Wouldn’t the portions be adjusted somewhat in order to be appropriate for each?

  • Is the overnight oatmeal recipe 2 servings or 1 serving. The recipe indicates that it is one serving but when made it appears to be too big a serving for one. Please confirm
