All my favorite yogurts are organic. They are made in small batches from organic farms.
The cows feed on grass, hay, grains, which produces milk that is better for your heart and tastes better. The grass on which they graze has not been treated with chemicals. The cows have not been treated with hormones or stimulants.
The milk is pasteurized, but not homogenized so the cream is on top. The taste is superb and superior.
I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes.
The best things and best people rise out of their separateness; I’m against a homogenized society because I want the cream to rise.
— Robert Frost
I eat half a cup of yogurt every day.
If eaten sans sugar, yogurt is probiotic, which means it replaces the good bacteria in your intestines.
I add ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. Cinnamon has been give credit for lowering the cholesterol and acting as a natural inflammatory. After eating ½ teaspoon of cinnamon every day for several months, my blood test revealed that my triglycerides had taken a dive.
The yogurt brands I like are:
- Maple Leaf Creamery
I buy them at Fairway, Gourmet Garage, Whole Foods and Farmers Markets.
