Yesterday I stopped by Safeway on my way home from work to pick up some things we're out of (organic onions, and rooster aka sriracha sauce, which I cannot give up). I was walking by the dairy isles when I saw it...red velvet yogurt. I love red velvet cake. I figured, hell, how bad can it be? And grabbed it. By then time I got to check out, I realized how freaking terrible it was. Let me just show you some pictures:
Nonfat? Pssshaa. I don't think so. Sweetened with apartame and "other sweeteners?" No effing way was I buying it. Then, I turned it over:
I think by now we know how I feel about pasterurized and nonfat milk. Gross. The very next ingredient is HFCS! Which is actually linked to obesity and is toxic for your body. Awesome. Modified corn starch (GMO) I don't like modified anything. Nonfat (processed) milk. APARTAME. It's literally a poison. It's a dangerous food additive that not only disrupts your proper serotonin function (proper function makes you feel happy!), it's been linked to cancer, insomnia, mood swings, birth defects, ADD and the list goes on. It is made using methanol, which breaks down into formaldehyde. Yummy, right? And not to mention the preservatives and other crap at the end of this ingredient list.
In conclusion, while most people think they're doing their bodies good by eating yogurt, a lot of times, they aren't. This is why it's so important to read ingredients. Clearly, I asked the cashier if I could put it back. I'll buy my yogurt from farmer Dan (that's literally his name).
