A Cup of Yogurt a Day to Keep the Doctor Away?

By  |  0 Comments

Nutritionally, many foods are a “mixed bag,” but others are just about perfect.

What’s one of these super foods? Try plain old yogurt. It has quickly become a favorite snack food for the health conscious because it comes in both low-fat and nonfat varieties and is rich in calcium, potassium, riboflavin, magnesium, and phosphate.

A single cup of fat-free yogurt contains 50 percent more calcium than the same serving size of milk — providing a third of your recommended daily requirement. Since it’s lactose-free, yogurt also provides a dairy alternative for people who are lactose intolerant.

P.S.: If you have a health condition or are on a renal diet (diet for chronic kidney disease)consult your doctor first.

If you’d rather not hop down to the market and buy your yogurt, here is a useful link:

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
