What is it with the low carb fad?
The past several Vegetarian Times magazines have had low-carb articles and recipies.
If only the emphasis would return to WHOLE GRAIN carbs (slower to digest, less insulin stress ), then, yeah, the refined carb limitation would make sense.
But avoiding an apple and eating a steak the size of your head is hardly a "diet," as in weight loss regime, choice.

As for Yoplait, many veggies use yogurt in the stepping-down process. I use White Mountain yogurt which is thin and has no gelatine (but still dairy), and it IS good on a baked potato! It's the best for raita, too. Comes in a glass jar.
