I just love the advent of the yogurt shop. That stuff tastes good, doesn’t it?  It’s crap for the most part, yet every now and then I love to indulge!!!  So, about the grocery store dairy section ‘light’ yogurt you buy thinking it’s so healthy, right? Read the label on Yoplait; (or any brand) they all have same ingredients. You will find a boat load of high fructose corn syrup. Did you know high fructose corn syrup is illegal in food in Europe (and other places) but PREVALENT IN OUR FOODS HERE! I digress, see my recent post on the book “In Defense of Food”.

When out and about and you want that TCBY type, or Yogurt Planet dessert, make sure it’s in moderation, that is, not frequent.  Once a week. Here are ingredients in your average fat free yogurt fruit flavored treat: (note first one)

Ingredients: Sugar, Corn Syrup, Strawberry Puree, Nonfat Milk, Whey, Stabilizer (Cellulose Gel, Mono and Diglycerides, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan), Strawberry Concentrate (Strawberry Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Beet Juice [For Color]), Lactic Acid, Yogurt Culture.

I’m okay with most sugar free foods and I strongly suggest you never eat “fat free” foods. They just add high fructose corn syrup! ugh!


I’ll cut to the chase.   Good snack?    Look right

Bad snack – See below


There’s nothing as good for you as whole foods, unchanged as much as possible by human hands. You’ll live better, longer, happier and healthier.

Warm regards,
