Mr. P used to call yoghurt “sissy food” because he claimed only girls like to eat this dairy food. But he’s now a yoghurt convert—how can he not be when he’s living with a yoghurt lover? ^^ For me, Thai lunches are sometimes not satisfying (I mean, portion-wise) so I usually down yoghurt as a healthy post-lunch snack to fill up the space in the tummy. At home I love stocking yoghurt in the fridge so there’s always something to eat when my hunger pangs strike. Last weekend, on the spur of the moment, I took a few mint leaves to garnish my cup of yoghurt, which made a pretty set-up and a good photo opportunity.
Yoghurt or yogurt?
Once again, it boils down to British and Americanised spelling, with the former favouring yoghurt and the latter favouring yogurt. In Turkey, where yoghurt originated, it’s spelled as yogurt; Turkish words with ‘g’ are traditionally adapted into English as ‘gh’, and hence yoghurt.
