So, I went with Rob and Vicki to this new, hip yogurt joint last night called Red Mango, which apparently is all the rage in Asia. Yogurt is not a new concept for me, but once I got to the front of the line and said "I've never been here", the guy on the other side of the counter started spouting the benefits of yogurt, which are: 100% all natural, fat free, rich in calcium and protein, and contains live and active cultures which are good for the body. Sounded good to me. I asked for a medium pom yogurt with sides of fruit and graham crackers. It was delicious! I was so excited to have found such a yummy treat, and one so good for me too!
One hour later... my stomach was not happy. I woke up at 2 am with my stomach in knots, KNOTS I tell you! It was very upset. I don't know why it affected me so much. I don't eat much dairy at all, so I figured that the live and active 'cultures' were probably trying to find their place in my acidophilus-free stomach. Seriously, I was so excited to have a new found favorite treat, but the stomach ache was almost too much to bear. It finally went away after I popped about 20 Rolaids at 3 am.
Am I the only one who has had this reaction to the delicious Red Mango yogurt? Do share if you have any insights.
