More Greek Yogurt and Sunshine!


So I am really trying to get into this greek yogurt thing. It is growing on me, i just have to learn to eat a whole container at once, I am struggling to get it all down at one time right now. Right now I have been eating Chobani brand. I want to try Oikos, and I found out they sell it at a whole foods type store about 25 minutes from here, so at some point eventually I will mosey down there, but for now, I am sticking to Chobani. I have tried vanilla and strawberry so far. The strawberry I ate plain, I was in a hurry. It wasn’t too bad! This morning I had the vanilla with granola and cinnamon and it wasn’t bad either! definitely an acquired taste but I am getting there!
Have you tried greek yogurt? Well if not, you can get a case of your own, because the Eat, Drink, and Be Hopeful Blog is giving away a case! Check it out on her blog. I plan to try more/new combinations with different toppings and see what i like the best!

I would also like to report THE SUN IS OUT! It REALLY helps my mood, a lot! It is cold though, in the low 40′s, so I think i will run tomorrow, it’s supposed to be sunny and a high of 53, that will be my last run before the half marathon! eeekk!

  1. First of all, I have to say – I stumbled upon your blog a couple weeks ago and I LOVE it! I got into running about 2 years ago and have been obsessed ever since. This is coming from a gal who couldn’t even run a mile in high school, 8 years ago! I love reading others’ running stories, and your blog is just great. You update often and with some interesting topics. And I feel like I can relate to you. :)

    I’ve never been a fan of regular flavored (or plain) yogurt, but I seriously can’t get enough Greek yogurt. Sometimes with a fork or spoon, I’ll mix in a small amount of PB, whip it up with some sweetener, and WOW. It’s terribly addictive! Also works with a bit of cocoa powder and sweetener if you like a chocolatey flavor for less calories. Tastes like chocolate mousse. Just a thought. Might help you to enjoy it and eat an entire container in one sitting! (PS – I’ve had everything from Fage, to Chobani, Oikos, Trader Joe’s, etc. They all taste the same to me — but vary pretty widely in price.)

    Have a great day!

    • aw you are so sweet! thanks for reading and more than anything thanks for commenting! I know I have readers but rarely hear from most :(
      you have some great ideas for the yogurt I must try! I still want to try some of the other flavors, too. I def. will try the peanut butter though, and I lloovvee chocolate!
      yay for running! I ran the 100m dash in HS, so running a 400 was long distance for me hhaaha! boy have I come a long way!

  2. My bf is leary of the Greek yogurt too. He bought a bunch after my Oikos review, but he didn’t end up liking it. He gave it all to me!

    I love it, but I know so many people who don’t. Maybe it will grow on you!

    • it is defiantely growing on me. still going to explore brands/flavors/combos and see what happens!
      did he mix anything in it when he tried it? It’s so not NOT to want to eat it b/c it just has so much protein in it!
