I recently got the opportunity to be interviewed by Desiree Gonzalez, who writes a column celebrating food in the North Valley in California. We discussed the goods and bads of yogurt and how not all yogurts are equal. It’s truly an honor to be acknowledged and asked for opinions on topics of nutrition, especially when it comes to such delicious and wholesome foods as yogurt.
