Now with HFCS on the bottom!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

I'll admit, I grew up on the stuff. I loved it! What a treat! I still bought it on myiwn. Even bought those gimmicky, limited edition flavors too. EVEN when I started to learn better and went on my weight loss/health journey, they still found their way into my shopping cart. Just now in diet form. Yes, I was a fan of fruit on the bottom yogurts. I really started looking at what I was partaking every day in my supposedly healthy diet. High fructose corn syrup, fructose syrup, sugar, modified corn starch, kosher gelatin... Where's the yogurt! I was sabotaging myself and I wasnt even proactive enough to check if it was truly healthy.
Now I eat real yogurt,Organic milk, organic nonfat milk powder, l.acidophilus, s.thermophilus, l.bulgaricus, l.casei, l.rhamnosus, b.bifidum cultures. If I'm feeling fruity, I add my own fresh. Mangoes, strawberries, cranberries, apples, raspberries, blueberries, they all appear in my yogurt. I feel better. It's not sugar and starch laden. And I control what I'm eating.
Here's to reading labels!

of course, that's my humble opinion, only. I know the corn producers don't agree with me.

    It's amazing the new treats and favorites you can come up with on your own. And it's cheaper too!

Raw sugar and flax seeds, yumm! I like to add some raw nuts every now and again too...

    I used to think all yogurt was healthy too. Now I only like Fage brand Greek yogurt. It is super thick and decadent. I love to mix it with slightly thawed frozen fruit and a little raw sugar, tastes like rich ice cream. It is amazing what you discover when you read labels!

Have an awesome week!

    Great job... That HFCS is nasty stuff. Sugar is really bad if you take in more than 25 gms per day. Less is best because your body can manufacture it if necessary. I like organic plain yogurt and add fresh blackberries and ground flax seeds. Yumm!!!!

Enjo y your day and keep reading those labels!!!!
