Get Set with Yoghurt
Yoghurt is universally popular and we all know about it. You can eat it, added to your recipes or slap it on to your skin because it does you good and tastes yummy. That’s a unique magic of yoghurt.
Try plain yoghurt made from whole, skimmed or low fat milk; scoop up fruity bites or jam in the flavored type that boasts added sugar and either artificial flavorings or real fruit or both. If you are full, use the remaining plain and unflavored yoghurt to look good.
