Yogurt Has a lot of Good Sh*t in it.


Hey folks, it's Joe here! 

You might know me as the guy who used to live on a diet of pizza, beer, and takeout, but let me tell you, I've turned over a new leaf with lots of leafy stuff! I'm all about health and nutrition these days, and one of my favorite foods to snack on is yogurt!  It has replaced my fried chicken!  Kidding, but only slightly.

Now, I know what you're thinking. Yogurt? That's for health nuts and people who wear yoga pants to the grocery store. But hear me out. Yogurt is delicious, nutritious, and easy to incorporate into your diet, even if you're like me and used to subsist on junk food.

First of all, let's talk about the health benefits of yogurt. One of the main reasons I love it is because it's packed with protein. As someone who works out regularly, I know how important protein is for building and repairing muscles. And let's be real, it also helps keep me full and satisfied between meals.

Another great thing about yogurt is that it's a good source of calcium. As a guy who's not getting any younger, I know that calcium is important for keeping my bones strong and healthy. And let's not forget about vitamin D, which is often added to yogurt and helps with calcium absorption.

But here's the real kicker. Yogurt is also full of probiotics. Now, I know that sounds like some weird science-y thing, but trust me, it's good for you. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that live in your gut and help keep things running smoothly. Eating yogurt regularly can help promote the growth of these good bacteria and improve your digestive health. Plus, it can also boost your immune system, which is always a plus.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Joe, that all sounds great, but what the heck do I do with yogurt?" Well, let me introduce you to my favorite yogurt recipe: the parfait. It's simple, delicious, and nutritious, and you can customize it however you like.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt and honey.
  • In a parfait glass or bowl, layer the granola, sliced banana, and sliced strawberries.
  • Spoon a layer of the yogurt mixture on top of the fruit.
  • Repeat the layers of fruit and yogurt until the glass is full.
  • Top with a handful of blueberries and any additional toppings of your choice, such as nuts or seeds.

Believe me, folks, this parfait is the bomb. The combination of creamy yogurt, sweet fruit, and crunchy granola is just perfect. And the best part is, it's so easy to make. You don't have to be a fancy chef or have a ton of culinary skills to whip up a delicious and nutritious snack.

So there you have it, folks. Yogurt is no longer just for health nuts and yoga pants wearers. It's for all of us who want to fuel our bodies with delicious and nutritious foods. And if you're not convinced, just try out this parfait recipe. It's a game-changer.
