Yogurt + Women = $$$$$$$


I’ll admit it – I’ve been on the yogurt train. I’m a big fan of any yogurt that claims to improve my digestive health or my immunity or anything – and plus, it’s YOGURT! WOOHOOOOOOOO!!

Anyway, I just watched this spot from Current and it made me feel so awesome that I, as a woman, have fallen into the yogurt trap.

I don’t care, though, because I really do like Activia. Pretty yummy. I can’t tell if the fiber helps because I get a decent fiber intake anyway, but I think that’s a bit TMI for all of you. Just watch the damn video.

The only thing MORE awesome than this yogurt trap is the yogurt-plus-breast-cancer trap! Like, you know how every October Yoplait keeps telling you to lick those lids and send ’em in so they can throw a couple of quarters at the Komen foundation? Well, guess what – their yogurt is made with bovine growth hormone, which has been found to be linked to breast cancer.

Mugh.

But dammit, I do love yogurt. I buy a biggol’ quart of storebrand, nonfat, plain yogurt every week so I can stir it up in my cheapass couscous-spinach-curry concoction. Yogurt is also a decent substitute for mayo in a lot of stuff. And it’s yogurt! And I’m a woman! And – mmmm!

Damnit! Bamboozled again!

    The other bad thing about sweeter yogurts is that they can counter act the benefits of the good bacteria they contain. So if you have to be addicted to yogurt like we are, it is best to go with one that is naturally flavored and omits the use of high fructose corn syrups. I like plain for food prep and strawberry or peach for snacking. Nom!

    I’m a store brand, non fat, strawberry (not flavored with aspartame) yogurt.

    I never understood the yogurt that makes you poop. I mean, why not just have some bran?

    Thanks for outing the yoplait folks!
