I have not had yogurt or other dairy products for a few weeks now and I can tell no difference in my eye problems. This weekend I bought a container of plain Dannon yogurt. The ingredients are listed, as required, and there is only one listed, which is milk. I've decided that since I can buy a quart container for $2.50, I'll just do that for now. I've been making my own yogurt for about two years but the reason I started making it was because of the iffy ingredients in most of the yogurt. I love the Greek yogurt but am much too thrifty to buy it regularly.
This morning I had a cup of yogurt topped with cinnamon, bite sized pieces of a tangerine, and a tablespoon of chia seeds. It was so delicious.
My husband eats cold cereal six days a week. I measure out a small portion and top it with a sliced banana and a half cup of milk. This morning I was looking at the ingredients on the three boxes of cereal in the pantry and all three had sugar as the second ingredient. These are plain cereals which don't even taste sweet to me: Rice Chex, Corn Chex and Cheerios. I suppose the really sugary cereals have sugar as the first ingredient.
Today I plan to weigh in at Weight Watchers for January and get my voucher for two free months of etools. If my old leader is back, I may stay for the meeting. Otherwise, I'll probably just leave and go back home to work on taxes. I'm trying to finish up the fourth quarter of expenses for the business.
