I am not into New Year’s Resolutions at all but I am into assessing how I can make better choices with my fitness and nutrition and “reset” a couple of things. Some of those choices involve listening to my body and taking rest days, stretching more and cross training to avoid injury this year. I am also striving to make better snack choices. I am moving away from packaged snacks an re-focusing on eating fruits and Greek yogurt for snacks.
I’ve been a lover of Greek Yogurt for a while now, so I was excited to try out some of the over 20 new Yoplait Greek Yogurt flavors Apple pie, banana caramel, black cherry, key lime, lemon and Boston creme pie (my new fave!) just to name a few. You can view all the flavors here .

For the past few weeks I’ve been eating Yoplait Greek Yogurt for my pre-workout snack or evening snack with fruit or a sprinkle of granola on top. I’ve found it really keeps me going to power through a spin class or intense kick boxing routine. I don’t feel that crash I sometimes do with a sugary bar. When I add Greek Yogurt into my day, I somehow feel it sets me up to make healthier choices the rest of the day. Do you feel that way too?
I was really craving something sweet the other night and tried out the Boston Creme Pie Greek Yogurt. It was creamy and flavorful and really did the trick.
Yoplait has set up a pretty cool Pinterest board with tons of 150 calorie snack ideas using their Greek Yogurt. Check it out and let me know your favorites. You know you’re on there anyway 🙂
