That’s right, you heard me! My seemingly “healthy” yogurt (well and really, all yogurts are pawned off on us as being “health” food) threw me for a loop when I decided to actually ready the nutritional label. I was SHOCKED that it had MORE sugar in it then a Snickers bar…and I should know as hubby keeps some in the freezer! Now I know obviously that yogurt is less fattening, but honestly, sugar can be just as bad and will turn into fat is you don’t exercise. I for one and not an physical exerciser, I’m simply a mental one. Then I also see that it has high fructose corn syrup in it….no thanks. For those of you wondering what the heck I bough, the name rhymes with “go-play”, it’s a popular brand, won’t take you lnog to figure it out.
So before you stock up on yogurt the next time you are at the grocery store, make sure to peek at the label! I’m going back to Dannon for myself (low sugar and no HF corn syrup), it’s good and I certainly don’t feel as guilty eating it! Besides, I love their flavors and that’s the brand I use for plain yogurt when I’m making my Fish Taco sauce, which goes well with so many things! Speaking of that sauce, just found out this weekend that it goes really well this Rice, Pepper & Pea Salad my sister in law made, so good! I’ll post the recipe for that soon!
