Product of the year, so far: Activia yogurt
Now, I'm usually not one for touting mass-produced, sugar-sweetened grocery store products. Nor do any of you really need to know much about my inner functioning. Let's just say that I'm pretty darn amped about Dannon's new Activia yogurt. It contains a special strain of probiotics that is scientifically proven to "reduce intestinal transit time." If that sounds wierd to you, then just skip this post. But if it sounds like it could be helpful, then try Activa, which starts working after a week or so of eating one container a day. I actually like the prune flavor, but I'm wierd. In France, where they've had this since 1987 under the Bio label, those lucky frogs can get the stuff in flavors like cranberry, kiwi, rhubarb, coconut and muesli. Here's the French site, where you can watch cute TV commercials for Activia. Enough said.
