Have you had your yogurt today?

Thursday, April 12, 2012

I just love yogurt. I think I'm addicted to the plain(Stoneyfield) with blackberries and ground flax. It's like dessert. I have it every day.

Some health benefits;

1. Yogurt is easier to digest than milk
2. Yogurt contributes to colon health
3. Yogurt improves the bioavailability of other nutrients
4. Yogurt can boost immunity
5. Yogurt aids healing after intestinal infections
6. Yogurt can decrease yeast infections
7. Yogurt is a rich source of calcium
8. Yogurt is an excellent source of protein
9. Yogurt can lower cholesterol
10. Yogurt is a "grow food

Enjoy some yogurt today!!! emoticon

You can make it with all powdered milk to save $$ too; that's what my housemate does, & it still tastes fine. I prefer to use organic milk for the cows' sake though. emoticon
