Family Meal Planning
From the Nutritionist: Diet food plans should include ample calcium. As way to obtain calcium is from yogurt. Yogurt is also rich in protein and Vitamin B. Yogurt has a variety of uses. It is a digestive add. Rub yogurt on sunburned skin. You can use yogurt in any recipe that calls for sour cream or buttermilk. Use in place of butter on baked potatoes. Fruits salads are delicious with yogurt dressing. A milkshake can be made with fruit juice and yogurt, milk and raw fruit and yogurt and soymilk and yogurt. To make a delicious snack just chop your favorite fruit or nuts. Add honey for sweetener. Yogurt is often considered a comfort food because of its calming affect. Even the family dog likes homemade yogurt, which is also nutritious for him, too.
Preparation of Home Made Yogurt
1 quart of skim milk
5 tablespoons of powdered milk
1 container of active yeast yogurt
Heat milk to boiling temperature. Milk should cool to room temperature. May test on forearm for coolness. Add the powdered milk and yogurt. Blend in the food processor. Pour into jars and place into a yogurt maker or 110-degree warm water. Maintain constant temperature for 6-8 hours. Do not move or shake the jars. Do not place any lids on the jars, but cover the cooking container. In a water bath, water should come to neck of jar. Place lids on jars. Cool. Keep refrigerated. May use one jar for the next batch starter. This is a calcium and protein food that is tasty as well. If liquid collects on top of yogurt, pour off and use in breads with milk.
