Everyone knows yogurt is good for you - it’s a tasty healthy protein-rich treat which is moderate on calories and nutrient-dense.
However, most yogurt is shit. By shit I mean it’s barely yogurt. A lot of brands of yogurt is heavily sweetened with High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), and no matter your opinion of HFCS there’s still some scary research correlating to some scary statistics and some odd propositions connected to monetary gain.
Real, delicious, nutritious yogurt is easy to find but doesn’t carry the same marketing budget as the Yoplait’s, Dannon’s and GoGurtz, so consumers are less inclined to try them. However, Brown Cow’s “Plain” yogurt hits the target.
I hear you - “Plain? Ick. Why don’t I just punch a baby?" and you may be on to something there. Being raised in the HFCS generation, my taste buds used to be completely put off by anything that wasn’t jam packed with sugars. My suggestion: put some other delicious shit on it that isn’t made of HFCS. Such as: Berriez, Oatz, Honeyz, other thingz with Z’s in them. These additions take no prep-time, and have plenty of nutrients.
You might be looking at the fat-content in the Brown Cow yogurt thinking “isn’t that a lot?” I’ve come to find that a major misconception on the combination of diet and exercise is that you need to eat less fat. This is not the case. You need to eat less bad fat, eat more good fat (Avocado, Fishies, Almonds, etc) and reduce the intake of bad fats and especially bad carbs. Bad carbs will turn into fat storage faster than you can punch a baby. So while the yogurt contains fat, your body will be more apt to utilize it for good, rather than evil. However, the YoPlait, Dannon, and other shit-yogurt full of HFCS carbs will definitely be used for evil.
Did I really just write a post about Yogurt? You bet your black-eyed-babiez I did.
