Greek Yogurt | A Vehicle for Health

I have partnered with Dannon Oikos to help promote the One Yogurt Every Day Campaign. I have been compensated for my time commitment. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

Yogurt is a staple in our household. It is protein packed and a good source of certain vitamins and minerals.  It’s great with breakfast, as a snack, or for dessert.  Krista and I personally love just regular ‘ol plain or vanilla Greek yogurt because of the natural taste and the fact that it doesn’t have added sugar. While it is creamy and delicious, sometimes eating it plain can get a little boring at times.  To spruce things up I like to add healthy toppings in my plain yogurt to make it a full and nutritious snack or meal. By choosing your own toppings, you can add whatever you’re feeling that day while still being in control of what you’re putting in! Check out some simple topping combinations that will give you an extra boost of nutrition and make sure you never get bored with your yogurt again!

Not gonna lie. Krista and I are total opposites. But hey, don’t opposites attract? They sure do in our case. I have always been a taskmaster, an organized, goal-oriented person. Krista, on the other hand? Not so much. Krista is a laid back, relaxed MORE...
