Yogurt is a personal favorite snack of yours truly. There are a ton of brands out there, from the popular Cobani, Oikos, and Dannon brands. Whether these are some of your very own personal favorites, yogurt is a must have for a healthy diet. Why, you may ask?
Well, yogurt is a probiotic. Yogurt allows you to have healthy bacteria that allows your digestive track to better react when eaten in healthy adequate amounts. For more on the health benefits of yogurt, check out this article on WebMD. We recently spoke to the team over at Tarte Asian Yogurt about their product and how they were changing the yogurt probiotic game. Here is what they had to say.

Before and after working out our bodies need energy to activate, rebuild, and recover. Carbohydrate and proteins are used as energy sources. First carbohydrates burn, then proteins. Once protein is metabolized it can be used as energy and/or building blocks for repair.

TAY: Tarte Asian Yogurt has 12 grams of protein, which has proven to keep bodies feeling fuller longer. We recommend eating Tarte 2 hours prior to any workout and immediately after any workout.
GFN: How does the cost of Tarte Asian Yogurt compare to other yogurt costs?
TAY: Tarte ranges from $1.69-$1.79 depending on the store location. This price is in line with premium quality high-protein yogurts on the market.
GFN: Gamers are usually grabbing snacks on-the-go. Are your yogurts portable?
TAY: Yes, Tarte Asain Yogurt is the ideal pre- or post-workout snack for the on-the-go gamer. The 6oz cup fits perfectly into car cup holders and is sturdy enough to be tossed into a gym bag for later. The only thing missing is a spoon!
GFN: Where can we find your yogurts?
TAY: Tarte Asian Yogurt is currently sold in select retailers such as Whole Foods, Sprouts, Target, & Costco with primary distribution in the West and Southwest.
