Going Greek

 

I recently received a prize pack and free coupon for the new Yoplait Greek yogurt from MyBlogSpark. I’d already tried the plain flavor a couple of times, and though this was a great chance to try one of their flavored Greek yogurts.

The prize pack they sent me was pretty cute:

A magnetic menu planner, magnetic notepad/pen, coupon organizer, fold-up reusable shopping bag, electronics holder, retractable earbuds, and a coupon for a  free yogurt.

This is what the bag looks like when unfolded.

When I was grocery shopping last week I picked up a strawberry flavored Yoplait Greek Yogurt and finally ate it with yesterday’s lunch.

The fruit flavor’s in this line are fruit-on-the-bottom, so you do need to do a little mixing if you want strawberry in each bite. I did just that, and was pleasantly surprised by the taste. I was expecting it to be super sweet, like most flavored yogurts are. Instead, tasty and real strawberry was in there!

It also had 14 grams of protein, 160 calories, and 0 grams of fat, which is awesome. As someone who is trying to lose weight, runs frequently, and build muscle all as the same time, protein is really important to me. I’m always trying to find ways to get more protein in my menu, and this was definitely a tasty way to do it. Protein is an important component of a healthy diet, serving as a building block for strong muscles and maintaining healthy bones.
