Back in March I entered a contest from one of my favorite Bloggers, Robin over at MassHoleMommy . Occasionally I enter these to support the ladies who take time to write reviews and help me find new products to love. I know this is their business and something they love, and I get the benefit of their great humor and fair insights.
You should know first of all I never win anything. Nothing. Frankly, I was shocked to learn I had won coupons for free samples of yogurt. Secondly I was really shocked that within days several coupons came in the mail not for just samples but several varieties and flavor of yogurt packs. To be fair, since I never win I just thought perhaps it was to try one or two or get a small sample.
I have tried greek yogurt in the past, without much love. It is a little more bitter than I like. Shamebus Moment: Cash was running a little low last week and I needed some fill in snacks for Pixie for summer lunches. I opened my check book to retrieve some handy-dandy coupons for free merch. Well there staring back at me were the Stoneyfield winnings I had yet to try. Perfect ! Throw that in the box !
Things to Note:
1- we are going to a more mediterranean diet now as suggested by our nutritionist and my boyfriend. (His overwhelming love of tabouleh has taken over the relationship)
2- we are eliminating most dairy in accordance with this diet but keeping low sugar greek yogurt (tzatziki) on the menu as recommended in the diet plan.
3- we are really trying to be healthy and smaller portion sizes are a big part of this.
4- health food is really expensive and it pisses me off to work so hard to be charged so much while I am striving to keep my family healthy.
Stoneyfield obviously makes these kid size servings more to be enjoyed by younger mouths. My mouth – so happy. The flavor was gently sweet with yummy fruity bursts. Nothing bitter, nothing bland. The size is just the prefect serving for Pixie and I with a balanced lunch or even for breakfast with my grains and nuts. I really enjoyed them. I was excited to see my grocer carries them at a fantastic price includes them often in sales, and comes in way below the cost of health food stores. Next shopping trip these will added to my ongoing cart of staples. Thanks Robin and thanks Stoneyfield!
