I've blogged about snacking smart before and now that I'm on Nutrisystem it's even more important to be smart with my food choices.
For me it's so hard to find yummy snack foods that are actually good for me. Recently we purchased a ton of yogurt because my husband likes taking it to work with him. Now I can't say I love yogurt but once in a while it's good. But I'm also not adventurious so I don't go out and try every brand and option there is out there.
As a part of this campaign for Dannon we were sent out to purchase the new Oikos Greek Yogurt and I must say, I was pretty nervious. How am I suppose to talk about something I know I'm going to dislike? Well boy was I wrong!
My husband still loves his regular brand but he said he wouldn't mind if I purchase this yogurt again. M didn't like the it but K was loving it. She loves yogurt so we aren't surprised.
I can definitely buy more of these for John's lunches so he can get a filling healthy snack while at work.
Dannon Oikos is created through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it a rich and creamy-thick texture. There are many varieties you can find at your local grocery store starting with the Dannon Oikos Plain and Fruit on the Bottom. Both contains 0% fat, while the Dannon® Oikos traditional blended varieties contains about 3% fat. Both are an excellent source of protein, twice that of most regular lowfat yogurts.
Dannon Oikos 0% varieties contain active yogurt cultures and range from 80 calories (Plain) to 130 calories (Fruit on the Bottom) per 5.3 oz. cup. Dannon Oikos 0% Fat Berry Flavors beat Chobani 2-1 in a taste teste.
