I tried yogurt for the first time!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

At Easter my sister gave me yogurt covered raisins. I enjoyed them. But I did not consider that my first yogurt. Yesterday I bought Dannon raspberry OIKOS greek yogurt. I was a bit concerned that I would not like it. But since everyone says that yogurt has many health benefits, I was willing to try one since it only cost $1.15. Well I enjoyed it, except I kept tasting it for about a half hour afterwards, but still I did like it. I have been having colon problems and yogurt is suppose to help with this. So later today I am going to the store and pick up a weeks supply and see if the colon problem gets help. An $8 dollar experiment!

    Yogurt covered raisins,yes
Frozen yogurt,yes
Regular yogurt,no. I don't know why but I don't like yogurt. It's like all I can taste is fake flavors and that tang. But I can eat a little if I buy plain yogurt and add fresh fruit and agave. I also use plain yogurt in smoothies and cooking.Weird as this sounds I love the yogurt at Mcdonalds in the fruit and berry parfait. We've asked but they never say what brand it is! I'm sure it has little nutrition in it though:-) I guess because I didn't grow up eating it that's why it's not my fav.
I found eating a big bowl of popcorn has helped my fiber issues! I have celiac so I'm familiar with all the tummy woes and more:-)

    Love it !! Good for you too and high in protein. You can get plain and flavor it yourself as well. Keep posted on if it helps you.

    Yay for trying new things! I enjoy yogurt...mostly I eat plain greek yogurt and add my own toppings, like fresh blueberries or trail mix.

    We almost always have yogurt of some sort in the house. We buy it in bulk packs from Sams Club - saves a fair amount over the grocery store regardless if its normal yogurt or greek. I prefer the regular to the greek - not as heavy to me. Its also great for cooking sauces- cuts a lot of calories and fat, but still adds the flavor.

    I love yogurt! Keep trying different flavors and varieties, I think they say it takes about 20 times to acquire a taste for something. I also like a little granola in mine, gives it some crunch!

    Good for you, Steven! It's definitely an acquired taste - that tart, acidic milk taste is a very unusual one, especially at first. With a little sweetener, noncaloric sweetener, a couple drops of vanilla extract and cinnamon stirred in, and then mixed with some cubed apple, I really love Greek yogurt. It's also good with a little sweetener and vanilla and some fresh, cut-up strawberries, too. Good luck!

    I never used to like yogurt. I think because years ago, the taste was pretty bland. Last year I tried it again and now I have some every day. I love it. And some of the flavours are terrific. And it's so good for you. For some people it's an acquired taste but now I like it better than ice cream! :)

    I love yogurts. IF you don't like the heaviness of the greek , try getting a regular yogurt and for added texture add in some cereal or grains .. we add grape nuts to ours to give it a crunch and add fiber. I also have stomach problems that flare up due to my heart meds and I now take a probitic and it helps

    Try a different flavors until you find one that doesn't stay with you 30 min. later. Add the yogurt to your daily diet and it will help with your colon issues. I drink Apple Cider Vinegar mix every day and that also is good for colon issues.

1 to 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar
8oz of water
1 to 2 tsp. honey or 100% maple syrup or 4 drops of herb Stevia

    I remember the first time my dad and I tried yogurt. That was back when all the fruit was on the bottom and you had to mix it before eating. We didn't know that, so we were trying plain yogurt. Needless to say, it was awhile before we tried it again.
