Wow it has been weeks since the last blog post. but don't worry I've got a stream of material coming your way. So no reason to wait any longer here's a good article in NPR.
This article is discussing the growing concern that a favorite health food, yogurt, has become more of a dessert option than a health food option.
Is this true? Below are some examples of good quality brand that I was able to find at our local grocery store. It looks like the article has a lot of truth. The whole yogurt section was very similar just different flavors and brand with very similar nutrition contents. However, the health food section had a few good options.
Here are a few examples that can be found in the regular yogurt section:
>Yoplait (150g container= 5oz serving)
-whips low-fat option: peanut butter chocolate: 4g fat, 26g carb (22g sugar), 5 g protein, fiber 0g
