Shocker of the Century


I have not consumed a single protein bar today. That's historic, to say the least. So what got me going this morning instead? Two words: Greek. Yogurt. I was reluctant to hop on the Greek yogurt bandwagon because when it comes to dairy substances, I don't really like "alternate" products. My wonderful and fabulous intern, Olive My Life, did some research for a new business pitch we have coming up and found tons of great information about the Greek goodness, and we decided to jump in together.

Oh my word, I had no idea there were so many different kinds of Greek yogurt on the market. So far I've tried Oikos, Dannon and Fage. Definitely my favorites have been Dannon Honey, Fage with Honey and Fage with Cherry. I've been mixing them with fruit (last week, strawberries, today bananas), and the combination is scrumptious, not to mention incredibly healthy. Greek yogurt has approximately twice as much protein per serving than regular yogurt, less sugar, and, in some cases, fewer calories. If it can get this girl to drop her protein bar, you best believe that it's worth trying out.

Just came across your blog.. It's super fun, i love your pics from St. Thomas! And although it seems you are looking for something to replace the protein bars, I have to say, just in case you haven't tried them.. luna bars are the absolute best!! :)
