Blueberry Yogurt Parfait + Chobani Giveaway

 
  It's that time in the afternoon again. 

The time the kids are napping. 

The time I have some free time. 

The time I plan to do chores, but end up sitting down doing nothing. 

Ahhh, nothing feels good.

I like to enjoy doing nothing with a snack, don't you? A cup of coffee doesn't hurt either. Today, I made this yogurt parfait with the good intentions of eating half, then sharing the rest with Will. But it never made it that far. I started eating, and....

....just like that, gone. Good thing there's more yogurt in the fridge.

I like to snack on yogurt because it's packed with healthy goodness like protein, calcium, and bacteria that keep your gut healthy. Plus, most yogurts are fairly low in calories and fat. I buy plain, non-fat/low-fat greek yogurt and sweeten it myself with either jam, honey or splenda. To make this parfait, I added fresh blueberries and granola.


Right now I'm really loving Chobani yogurt because it tastes GREAT and comes in a variety of flavors. This week, I bought plain greek yogurt. Apart from making parfaits, I like to use it in cooking as a sub for mayo and sour cream. It's so naturally rich and creamy, no one knows the difference. Score one for mom!

And good news, the nice folks at Chobani want to send you some....for FREE! And not just any yogurt, their new flavors: peach, blueberry, black cherry, vanilla chocolate chunk, mango, and pineapple. Each yogurt is 16 oz each, so there's plenty to enjoy. I got to try them and they're goooooood. Eaten alone or used in recipes, you'll be a fan. You can enter three ways:

1. Post a comment telling me your favorite way to enjoy yogurt
2. Like me on Facebook
3. Have a smart phone? Follow me on instagram {tiffany_rd}

Enter all three ways, and your name with be entered three times! Just let me know what you did.

Good luck!

  10. With obesity predicted to affect more than 50 percent of the population in the next 40 years, the age of ‘fad diets’ and ‘quick weight loss’ has boomed to epic proportions. From the apple cider diet to the Quantum Wellness, to the 48 Hour Miracle diet, each of these weight loss programs all claim to promote immediate weight loss and increased vitality.
    This is simply not correct. Fruits, veggies, whole grain, nut products, dried beans as well as oils, many include proteins. Meats in fact has high levels of sodium, fat and salt, particularly in red meat which is not so healthy due to its high levels of cholesterol. Whole grain, nuts, oils, and dried beans in fact onsist of more proteins than in meat products. Your own body requires at least 25 grams of protein per day ,so it is obvious you do not haveto eat only meat to obtain your day-to-day allowance.
