411 on Yogurt

I don't do a ton of informational posts, but there's some info I deem worthy of sharing. (and thanks to my Aunt Amy for sharing!)

Yogurt is a staple food in our household. In the recent years many of our favorite yogurts have become so over processed and most of us (like me) haven't noticed.


I had no idea...

The Hidden Dangers in Yogurt

In conclusion, it's better to try to eat brands like the StoneyField’s Organic Fat-free Yogurt, and many of the Greek yogurts. I've said before Organic is expensive and often hard to swing all the time, but if it's something your family eats a lot of, it's a good idea to try an go Organic with those frequently eaten items. We actually cancelled our cable, got Netflix instead for $8 per month (for the record... YES, it's a huge sacrifice, and yes I'm still getting used to it) and we cut other corners so we don't break the bank on trying to buy some organic items. It's all a trade off, like so many things in this sweet life :) we pick and choose, pick and choose.

Funny that you should write about this, Bethany (from the office) and I were just discussing yogurt the other day!

We both want to try and make it ourselves and I found this method using a slow cooker:

When I get around to trying it, I'll let you know how it goes!

We have always eaten Stoneyfield. I am so crazy about the hormones in dairy. We also do organic milk and I try to do cheese, but that's about it. It's cheaper if you buy the tub of yogurt instead of the individual cups. Less waste too! Cute blog. Love that family picture!
