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!
