Five reasons why you should enjoy Yogurt

By  |  0 Comments

MMMM….Yogurt!! This is one of my most favorite snacks.
Given the option of a soft drink and curd/yogurt, I’d rather go
for the curd every time. In South Indian families in India, curd
is part of the staple diet, especially for vegetarians. And with
good reason. Here are five of them:

  1. Fresh yogurt is rich in bacteria that makes lactic acid – which balances acid in the stomach
  2. Fresh yogurt protects your gastro intestinal system, helping in food digestion
  3. Lactic acid makes the digestive tract more acidid, helping the balance of flora that promotes proper bowel movements
  4. Fresh yogurt gets rid of gas
  5. Fresh yogurt prevents diarrhea

Preferably, go for the homemade yogurt – as the benefits are manifold compared with commercial stuff that loses most of the lactic acid producing bacteria Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus – the heroes that help in proper digestion in our body. Enhance the yogurt with fresh fruit and berries, if you like!

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 write to collect smiles and donate to charities. I share 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.
