“I participated in an Event and Blogger Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dannon. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All views and opinions are my own, and do not necessarily represent those of Dannon.”
It is no secret that I love a good snack. I am overweight but I'm working on it. I won a fitbit from work and since I don't have to take it off to charge it every night, I actually end up wearing it the next day to count my steps! Factor in cutting out soda and making sure I drink the recommended amount of water and I'm doing better every day. The hardest part of getting healthy for me has been giving up my favorite snacks. Funfetti cupcakes, potato chips, a rich slice of chocolate cake... yum!
It's hard to choose better for you foods because so often, they don't taste nearly as good! Dannon has figured out the solution to my problem making delicious, Dannon® Light & Fit® Greek nonfat yogurt in one of my favorite flavors-- Tiramisu! It is so delicious and is a satisfying alternative to something loaded up with sugar and empty calories!
Dannon® Light & Fit® Tiramisu Flavored Greek nonfat yogurt has 12 grams of protein, 80 calories and 0% fat per 5.3 oz serving so it helps me stick to my new lifestyle while satisfying my sugar loving taste buds and shrinking away those daily temptations and cravings.
While at Stop & Shop, a nutritionist walked us through the store pointing out 'better for you' snack options. Stick to berries, leafy greens, and fresh produce.
Berries on my yogurt... yum!
She also reminded us to make sure we are eating all of the colors of the rainbow to make sure we're getting a full range of vitamins from our foods and to really look at labels while purchasing our foods. Stop & Shop is making it even easier for those like me who struggle with making good choices, pre-cutting produce and offering both bulk and single serve portions which are great to grab on the go.
This label was for gluten free ciabatta rolls which qualifies as a "Healthy Idea" at Stop & Shop and the label lets you know as you are shopping! This label also indicates that it is a gluten free product. It makes it a lot easier to "grab" things in the aisles with that type of information just at the ready. Between the easy to read labels from Stop & Shop and the delicious treat like good for you snacks by Dannon, I am sure I'll be watching the pounds fall off! Now excuse me while I go indulge in some Tiramisu (yogurt!)!
