SPARK! - Greek Yogurt

As you know, I am trying to improve my fitness and nutrition game and one of my favorite treats is Greek Yogurt. I know a lot of people consider yogurt "diet food" and I did too - in fact, I considered most yogurt pretty gross and when I tried some of the low fat, or diet varieties - it left something to be desired.

I just didn't like the taste of "regular" yogurt so when it was suggested that I try Greek Yogurt I figured why not - I'll give it a shot. I find that Greek yogurt is slightly sweeter taste (to me) without added sugar and a consistency that appealed to me. The extra bonus is that with Greek Yogurts you get 0% fat and about 2x the amount of protein that is in regular yogurt. I'll take a bunch of protein over empty carbs any day.

I recently had the opportunity to try a new player on the market - Yoplait Greek Yogurt. Yoplait & Giant through MyBlogSpark were generous enough to send me a couple of containers of the new Yoplait Greek Yogurt and a $20 Gift Card to Giant (so I could stock up and share). My favorite Greek yogurt to date is Chobani, but it it rather pricey and I only buy it when it is on sale. This time I didn't have to worry about the price point to give it a try. YIPPIEE!

Yoplait Greek Yogurt has 0 grams of fat and just 130 calories. Each cup contains 12 grams of protein - two times that of the leading yogurt - and is available in four delicious flavors, including Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla, and Plain. In addition, Yoplait is the only leading brand of Greek yogurt with Vitamins A and D.

For the price point (you will need to do your own comparison) Yoplait is a good & easy choice to make for a tasty, healthy snack on a budget.

I know a lot of you guys are working on your fitness and nutrition game too (especially Ms-Fiber-Pattey) so I have the opportunity to offer up a prize pack so you can try the new Yoplait Greek Yogurt and decide for yourself. The prize pack includes 4 free coupons to purchase the product and a $20 Giant gift card.

To enter to win the prize pack, leave me a comment telling me which flavor of Yoplait Greek Yogurt you would like to try and/or introduce me to a new healthy snack I can add to my repertoire. You will get additional entries if you tweet this (include @thetraveldiva in tweet so I know you sent it) or follow me (click the google follow on left sidebar - you will have to let me know in comments that you followed)
