**5 DAYS UNTIL MY BIRTHDAY CHOBANI GIVE AWAY!!! MAKE SURE TO CHECK BACK ON MARCH 1**
All of the flavored yogurts, fruit smoothies and crazy oat bowls I’ve been enjoying for breakfast recently have made me a bit nostalgic for my simple favorite: sliced banana, 0% plain Greek yogurt, cinnamon and granola. It is easy, filling and refreshing. As much as I love 2% Greek yogurt for its thick consistency, granola takes on a whole new meaning when it is added to the non-fat. It slightly absorbs the moisture and makes the yogurt more voluminous. Plain Greek yogurt was MADE for fruit. The tangy, sour flavor provides a perfect canvas to compliment the sweet fruit. Real Greek yogurt is often served as a dessert with honey and nuts: cool, creamy, crunchy, tangy and sweet! I would do well in Greece.Today I pulled out a Chobani Non-fat Plain Greek Yogurt from the sample pack in my fridge. It was the perfect day to have my long time staple. I have been consuming this yogurt for years, and have mentioned it in other posts, but I wanted to take the time to highlight this particular flavor. Prior to finding Chobani, I was consuming a variety of other brands of Greek Yogurt. After doing a label, taste, and price comparison, I chose Chobani and never looked back.
Popular Brand Nutritional Stats:
CHOBANI 0% Plain: (6oz) 100 calories [0 fat], 0 Cholesterol, 80mg Sodium (3%dv), 7g Carbohydrates (2%dv; 7g of sugar), 18g Protein (36% dv)
Fage 0% Plain: (6oz) 90 calories [0 fat], 0 Cholesterol, 65mg Sodium, 7g Carbohydrates (7g sugar), 15g Protein
Okios 0% Plain: (5.3oz) 80 calories [0 fat], 0 Cholesterol, 60mg Sodium, 6g Carbohydrates (6g sugar), 15g Protein
Because prices/availability may vary, I don’t have an exact price comparison, but I tend to buy the 32oz containers and I can get the Chobani for 1/2 the price of Fage.
I think I could eat this 100 times a day. It is so satisfying, I always get sad when I’m on my last bite (but that also means that I have to start getting on with my day). Sometimes, the simple things in life are what make us the happiest.
Happy Hump Day!
