Yogurt and Fruit (Breakfast- Day 9)

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

That's what we had, yogurt and fruit. Very simple but healthy breakfast and also something the kids can have by themselves, say, if mommy stayed up late watching movies on the computer.

Yogurt is one of the foods that I think are perfectly okay to use pre-packaged, kind of like milk. But, like milk, you could milk your own cow and you can make your own yogurt. That's why I went with White Mountain yogurt because it can be used as a starter to make your own yogurt. Will I ever be brave enough to breed my own bacteria to feed to my children? Probably not, but the opportunities there. So, here's my comparison...

All Natural Yogurt vs Dannon Yogurt

White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt (1 cup)
Calories: 140 Fat: 9 g
Ingredients: Grade A pasteurized whole milk and live yogurt cultures (L. Acidophilus, L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, and B. Bifidum)

Dannon Yogurt, All Natural Plain (1 cup)
Calories: 160 Fat: 8 g
Ingredients: cultured grade A low fat milk, sugar, water, less than 1 % corn starch, natural flavor, pectin, locust bean gum, lemon juice concentrate and active yogurt cultures including L. acidophilus

The only problem with the natural yogurt is that it is very tart. You may need to add a little sweetener of some sort.
