I generally buy the plain yogurt. Organic when I can afford it. I will do 1/2 cup of yogurt then add about half a teaspoon of cinnamon and then 3 almonds. I also add about 3 drops of Stevia to sweeten it up. For those on the Zone I think that would be 1 block.

eat it when you're hungry. it's amazing how food can become palatable when hunger is involved.

a couple of times of that and then regular yogurt will be too sweet.

in the interim cut up fruit and mix with your yogurt

I put a little bit of pure vanilla extract (not the imitation stuff!) in plain yogurt. They sell a great one at Trader Joes's, it's called "Pure Tahitian Vanilla Extract".

I make Kefir instead of Yogurt, not sweet, cheap and much better for you.
Just make sure you start with the grains and not the cultured powders.

Sarena;
Kefir is the bomb, IF you like a cultured product, either dairy, cultured water(honest) or veggies. Dom site is the definitive source for info and grains. There is a lady in this country that supplies them, but I have extra and will gladly ship some to you if interested. Review the below Work/Family safe link, let me know what you think.
Have a super weekend, maybe I'll see you at Pittsburgh Cert.
