Yoghurt

I don't think there are very many homes that don't have yoghurt.Yoghurt is a one goodness which you can either get at the local market or make it yourself at home.Good yoghurt being the one with cultures.Most yoghurt that we get in the market always says there is some prebiotic culture in it ,which is a good thing.

Now the beauty remedies that I'm going to mention here includes yogurt as a main ingredient.Just for reference...yoghurt shouldn't be too runny.If you have sort of runny yoghurt, you can always take a cheesecloth or clean cotton cloth, throw in the yoghurt,tie into a pouch and hang it over the sink or in a colander and let it drain overnight or for a couple of hours. The resulting yoghurt is thick,super creamy and ah ! so beautiful to hold in your hands.


Besides yoghurt being used in main courses and salads or as a drink...it has other wonderful uses.You don't have to throw it away just because the date will be up the next morning.


OK to the point now:

Let me not make this a lament for our bad choice of food consumption and go in dire…
