A Tale of Two Yogurts

The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to read this article about A Tale of Two Yogurts.

Yogurt is a great example of how to supermarket shop. Here's a label lesson in choosing a nutrient-dense yogurt that's super for families and spotting one that is, well, sad. Enjoy a cup of Stonyfield’s Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt, Dr. Bill's personal favorite. Later on in the day eat a cup of one of those "lite" or "fit" brands of yogurt. (Generally avoid package hype of "lite" or "fit" as they usually contain artificial colorings and sweeteners.) Notice any difference in how satisfied you are? Now compare the two labels:
