I used to eat yogurt
When trying to diet.
Instead of a muffin,
I thought I would try it.

Some flavors were tasty
But none’d really thrill me.
Compared to my muffin,
It never did fill me.

Demand for it faded
And I, too, surrendered;
For, low-fat or no-fat,
My body’d not slendered.

But now, decades later,
Seems yogurt is cool
And anyone knocking it’s
Branded a fool.

It still wouldn’t fill me
If served as a meal
And as for a snack,
It holds little appeal.

So I’ll stand outside
As the yogurtites eat
And stick to my ice cream
If I need a treat.

    Yogurtites - one for the ages. Put it in a time capsule.

    For me, nothing can stand up to salty food like chips, popcorn or nachos. haha. But I sure do enjoy the soft yogurts with tons of toppings when I am in the mood for them. You must be a bread girl? Bread is so yummy too. Love your food poems, Ilene.

    Yogurt is ethereal if it's eaten with some cereal. Or a half a pound of fruit and pudding pie. So when you hear them talking bout the enzymes and nutrition. Remember weight is only dropped from good ole pure ambition. :)
