Y - Yogurt
When I was a kid yogurt was a health food faddist joke, but now it's totally gone mainstream. The grocery aisles are full of dozens of varieties. Now that we're on a bit of an eating program, this nice thick non-fat yogurt is part of our regular breakfast now. Greek yogurt is thicker and tastier than the sugary kinds we used to get. It feels healthy and it has about 15 grams of protein, which is a boon to dieters like us.
This kind is a real treat--date and fig. We often mix it with cottage cheese, a bit of granola and chopped nuts and whatever fruit we have around. Mango and orange are nice with it.
