Bjold yogurt
Be bjold! Add some culture to your diet!

Some people can’t go a day without eating or drinking a particular something, whether it’s coffee, peanut butter, chocolate or (fill in the blank).  We can’t go a day without yogurt. And why should we? Like the peanut butter fanatic who puts peanut butter on waffles, ice cream and sliced apples, we say there are few foods that defy the yogurt pairing. Here’s just a few ideas to get you started. Read them through, then send us yours. The more outrageous the better. But please, keep it tasteful.

  1. Cereal: Hot or cold – who needs milk?
  2. Fruit salad: Toss your fruit in yogurt with a dash of cinnamon for zing.
  3. Waffles: Who needs buttermilk? And you can still go crazy with fruit and nuts.
  4. Cookies & muffins: Add for flavor, or as an egg substitute (1/4 C per egg).
  5. Frosting: Add real maple syrup or jam, and frost cakes.
  6. Fish: Scrap the tartar sauce! Add dill and lemon, and lay it on.
