Yogurt is the Word of the Day

I could not see myself eating eggs again this morning, don't get me wrong, I love eggs but I wanted something different.  So I decided to make a yogurt parfait.  Boy, did I make the right choice.  I used frozen strawberries, lemon yogurt, and fiber one cereal.  Definitely hit the spot.

I started Weight Watchers again recently and this is 3 points.

Yogurt has been around for more than 5000 years. It is actually a fermentation process of milk.  You need to look for yogurt that has active cultures because this helps with digestive health.  It is rich in protein, calcium, Vitamin B, and many other good things.

I bought a yogurt maker and use it frequently to make my own.  I love the consistency of thicker yogurt, for example greek yogurt.

Also, if you take yogurt and put in a coffee filter or cheesecloth, you will get yogurt cheese.  Yogurt cheese can be used for many things, dip, whipped cream, frosting, mousse, etc.  If you try it you will love it.  I will talk more about this later.
