Summer will be here in no time, and over the past few weeks, I have been looking into healthier options to satisfy my sweet tooth. I was so excited to learn about the new Dannon Oikos® line of yogurt.
Dannon Oikos® is a creamy-thick nonfat yogurt that is made through a traditional Greek straining process, which makes it an excellent source of protein. Each cup of Dannon Oikos® contains twice the amount of protein of regular low fat yogurt and 0% fat (with the exception of Dannon Traditional varieties). Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt has 12 -14g p (24%DV) compared to regular low fat yogurt with 5g protein (10%DV) per 5.3 oz.
Keri Glassman and Dannon Oikos have come to the rescue by encouraging readers to ‘Grab a Spoon ‘til June’. With rich and creamy 0% fat Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt, you can stay on track toward your goals, while at the same time adding spice to your normal routine!
Here are some tips from Keri to help you get started –
- Every Meal Is A “Monday Morning.” Focus on eating better, one meal at a time. Otherwise, it can be easy to get discouraged – forget the worry! Your only mission is to make the next meal you eat nutritious, balanced, and satisfying.
- Don’t Eat Around A Craving. Honor your craving with a conscious indulgence – take a few deep breaths and find a healthy alternative! Try satisfying your sweet tooth with Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt. It is nutritious but still has an incredible taste.
- No-Excuses Exercise. Sometimes the biggest barrier to working out is just getting there, so a good option can be to make it as easy as possible—throwing in a workout DVD or even going for a walk takes away excuses and gets you moving!
- Satisfying Proteins. A moderate-protein balanced diet with a reasonable amount of fiber, carbohydrates, and the appropriate amount of healthy fats, is the best way to maintain a healthy weight. Dairy is a great source of protein. Try a creamy Greek nonfat yogurt like Dannon Oikos®–it has twice the protein of regular low fat yogurt.
