Yogurt Is Our Friend!

Yogurt is Our Friend

Yogurt
Various cultures claim yogurt as their own creation, but the 2,000-year-old food’s health benefits are not disputed: Fermentation spawns hundreds of millions of probiotic organisms that serve as reinforcements to the battalions of beneficial bacteria in your body. That helps boost your
immune system and helps provide protection against cancer. Not all yogurts are probiotic, though, so make sure the label says ‘live and active cultures.’ Aim for 1 cup of the calcium and protein-rich goop a day. And choose wisely: Use our Best and Worst Yogurts.

SUBSTITUTES: Kefir, soy yogurt

Yogurt Ideas: Yogurt topped with blueberries, walnuts, flaxseed, and honey is the ultimate breakfast — or dessert. Plain low-fat yogurt is also a perfect base for creamy salad dressings and dips.
