Yogurt is considered a fat fighter because of its calcium. One study showed that for every 1000 mg of calcium consumed daily over a period of 4 years, women weighed an average of 18 pounds less. It also contains good-for-you bacteria that is believed to help maintain the flora in the digestive system. But stick to fat-free, light yogurt and watch what they add for your best health.

This isn’t a recipe, but my favorite way to use yogurt is on top of bran cereal (or granola) with a sliced banana. Very filling and really good!
