The Yoghurt of Champions

Bored with my usual porridge and enamoured with making my own semi-dried tomatoes I recently walked down the vegetable aisle at the supermarket unaware that in a matter of moments I would have an epiphany. One that would change, if not my life, then my breakfast menu for ever.
