Default Homemade yogurt?

I make my own yogurt and eat a lot of it plain. I use skim or 2% and yogurt starter. Would this be phase 1 friendly? I'm assuming it would be the same calories and such as skim or 2% milk...any insight? I don't drink much milk because I'm lactose intolerant, but I can handle yogurt alright.

Skyblue, I've never made yogurt, but it sounds like a great thing to do! What's in the "yogurt starter?" As long as the ingredients in that are P1 friendly, you should be fine. If not, try getting plain fat-free or lowfat yogurt at the grocery store for Phase 1 and then go back to making your own in P2.

Yogurt starter is just either purchased bacteria or existing yogurt.

It's just dehydrated yogurt from "Cultures for health" I start each new batch with the last half cup from the old batch.

Get some starter from "Cultures for Health" It's a countertop starter and you don't have to heat it or anything. I love not having to mess with a yogurt maker

(I don't work for them, I swear, I just like their product. )

Is this starter available in regular grocery stores or stores like Trader Joes? I am interested in making my own yogurt and I usually use existing yogurt but want to try with a starter too.

I ordered online. I can't post the link, but if you google the name, you should find it.

I think I've posted this link before. I remember Zeff and I talking about yogurt making quite a bit. I like making it in the winter though I get distracted by other things in the summer.

A good place to start (no machine needed):

I have a gas stove so no effort at all, the pilot keeps the oven at just the right temp. It's incredibly easy to make and you know exactly what's in it.
