“I’m picky about my yogurt. I want it minimally processed, sweetish but low in sugar (and no cheating with fake sugars), high in protein, creamy and not from a giant cow-milking factory (that grosses me out).

“Raspberry jelly with seeds, to be precise. Jelly is the key to my happy marriage. My husband goes through a Costco-sized container of jelly every week, and if I didn’t keep it stocked in the fridge, he’d be outta here. Plus it’s great on toast with peanut butter, which I eat daily.”
