Yogurt has a good amount of phosphorus in it. It's about 20% for once 6 ounce serving of low fat. Plus yogurt has decent protein and calcium. As far as I'm concerned, 2 6 ounce containers of low fat yogurt makes up part of the perfect, healthy breakfast.

Now I'm working on getting more magnesium myself. It's the only nutrient severely lacking every day for me. This thread has given me ideas.

Good sources of magnesium

* Salad greens.
* Nuts.
* Soybeans and tofu.
* Seeds.
* Whole grains, such as those found in whole-grain breads and cereals.
* Green, leafy vegetables, such as spinach, broccoli, and cabbage.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
