Why Being Plain Is Perfect

If you’re looking to lose weight or watch your sugar intake| it’s time to embrace your inner plain Jane. According to dietician Julie Upton| MS| RD of Appetite For Health| nondairy yogurt and milk labelled as “plain” or “original” tend to be lower in sugar than other varieties available. For comparison| Stonyfield Organic plain yogurt only has 12 grams of sugar per serving| while the same amount of french vanilla yogurt has 30 grams ¡ª that’s more than two times the sugar! Instead of grabbing flavored containers| top off your plain yogurt with chopped fresh fruit or berries for extra flavor and nutrition.
