The best yogurt
I've decided I should start eating a carton of plain yogurt every day for health reasons. I'm not defending this decision, so don't try to get in an argument with me about whether yogurt is any better for you than a glass of milk, We can talk about that another time. What I want today is your advice. ...
I already mix plain and fruit-flavored yogurt half and half because the fruit yogurts taste too sweet to me, so I decided I might as well just bite the bullet and switch to plain. Yesterday I had a carton of Dannon fat-free yogurt (the only kind of Dannon plain my supermarket sells), and I could barely gag it down. The texture didn't make up for sour taste.
Maybe I should go for full-fat plain. I don't mind yogurt's calories (most of the calories are in the "fruit" anyway). I want it to have the texture of sour cream, only be yogurt. Or maybe I should just eat a carton of sour cream. Nah. That probably wouldn't have the same health benefits.
So you plain yogurt eaters out there, please recommend a brand for me to try. Of course, with my luck it will probably be some brand from Switzerland that can only be bought at the Whole Foods in Fairfax, Va., and it will become another food obsession that I will spend too much time and money trying to track down. But recommend away. I'm listening.
