That's interesting! I haven't been eating as much yogurt as usual. I need to get back in that habit.

I saw this little gem, research reports that calcuim in dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt act as fat burner that can boost weight loss by increasing the fat breakdown in fat cells. Michael Zemel, Professor of Nutrition and Medicin at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville reports (Obesity Research, April 2004; vol 12 pp 582-590..

I swear by this, this man has a good point I have dropped half my body weight and eaten yoghurt and milk product daily regularly 4 years.

I love, love, love the Strawberry Non-Fat Kefir from Trader Joe's.

Now, I just need to create a master plan of the "Ultimate" smoothie.

I start every morning out with yogurt. I love the post about adding flax -- that's my next venture. I've also added low-fat cottage cheese and pineapple just to have something different.

Blessings, Denise

Yogurt is the first thing my husband and I eat every day. I love the idea of mixing it with the berries and walnuts, sounds delicious!

I have a yogurt and soy milk based fruit smoothie recipe on sparkrecipes (link from my profile page). It's really refreshing after a workout.

My favorite yogurt-based meal:

Layer:
One cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 sliced banana
1/4 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup blueberries
2 tbs crushed walnuts
2 tbs honey

I don't like plain yogurt either, but sweetening it with honey makes it taste delish.

Try non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt or kefir and make smoothies with it, good time to add your berries!
I don't do dairy for health reasons, so today I am trying Whole Soy & Co. Soy Yogurt. No high fructose corn syrup there! This container is strawberry, and it uses Organic Evaporated Cance Juice (Natural sugar) as its sweetener.
The point of yogurt is mostly the probiotics, plus the calcium and other benefits.

I love yogurt! Well, yogurt that doesn't have any high fructose corn syrup in it (which is hard to find!). I don't like it plain. I've tried many times to eat plain yogurt..can't do it. Although I saw someone's recipe for a greek dip..that sounds good! I sometimes take those pills for the "friendly bacteria" that plain yogurt gives...

Yes yogurt is a superfood.

It is important to look for active cultures in the ingredients.

Active cultures keep our intestinal tract healthy and this results in total better health and immunity.

I have been eating Dannon Activa because it has intestinal probiotics.

I also buy plain yogurt with active cultures. I drain it overnight and then make a greek dip by adding shredded cucumber, one TBL. olive oil, 2 cloves of minced garlic, juice of 1/2 fresh lemon and some minced dill.

Yogurt promotes strong bones and a healthy heart, another health promoting protein source, and a great source of calcium.
