Looking for a Healthy Treat? Try New Yoplait Greek Blended Yogurt

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I am absolutely ravenous these days.  Most likely because I'm training for a half marathon on top of exclusively pumping for my Lola girl.  At times I feel like I haven't eaten in days when in reality it has only been maybe an hour.
Seriously.  It's a problem.
My addiction to junk food has not been helping me reach my minimal goal weight either.  Lately I have been running to those Sea Salt Kettle Chips and cookies to curb my hunger, but those empty calories do nothing for this girl's healthy eating plan nor am I giving my body the nutrients that it needs to keep moving along in my busy lifestyle.  If I was tweeting I'd totally say - #mommyproblems

I decided to look for some snacks on my last trip the grocery store that were higher in protein and fit well within my healthy diet.  The more convenient the better for me.  Basically things I can eat while holding a baby, cooking dinner or folding laundry is what I'm looking for these days.  I've always been a fan of yogurt and lately I've become quite keen on my greek yogurt.  However, the texture of some brands can really get to me so I've been loyal to certain kinds over others.  Yoplait has always been my go-to yogurt brand so when I saw the new Yoplait Greek Blended yogurt I thought I'd give it a try.

Good thing I did because these cups are absolutely delish!  I know greek yogurt can get some people on the texture because it can with me too.  However, with Yoplait's Greek Blended cups, it is already smoothly mixed together - no fruit on the bottom for you to mix up on your own.  I was pleasantly surprised with how thick and creamy the yogurt was as I was eating it.  Plus it's packed with tons of protein (at least 14 grams of it per cup!) and also contains natural sweeteners and flavors, so none of that artificial stuff.  There are tons of flavors to choose from too.  It definitely satisfied my snack attack and held me over until my next meal.   Yoplait Greek Blended Yogurt is the perfect snack to curb my ravenous hunger that literally hits an hour after lunch.  I'm not exaggerating.

My perfect blogging snack.

Check out Yoplait's Greek Blended Yogurt line as well as the different flavors they have to offer.  These yogurt cups will definitely be part of my meal and snack plans during my training for the Indy Mini Marathon!
