Yogurt or Calorie Loaded Desert?
The good news is that now we have a wide variety of yogurts available in super markets with live cultures (great for probiotics!). The bad news is that instead of making healthy wholesome food most yogurts are more like a calorie loaded dessert. To give yogurt a dessert flavor they add extra sugars’ or artificial sweeteners! YUCK!
Some yogurts are made with cow’s milk, goat’s milk or soy milk. What’s the difference? Some are made with live cultures such as Lactobacillius, acidophilus and bifidus. The bacteria in these yogurts help the gut to heal faster after taking oral antibiotics.
