There's a revolution of sorts happening in our house. I am putting the healthy smack down on the family right now. You know what happens, you go through the entire winter eating out of boredom, then the sun comes out in the spring, you go to put your "springy" clothes on and realize that you have done your body a serious injustice. Then you start thinking about how the entire family could really do better. You throw out every salt and sugar loaded snack food in your pantry and head to the grocery where you fill your cart with healthy foods...fresh fruits and veggies, whole grain breads, salad mixes, lean meats and cheeses, and then you hit the cereal isle. Ugh...sugar city. So, what pray tell do you feed your kiddos for breakfast every morning? I don't know about you, but there is a mad rush going on up in here in the mornings, so we need easy...no full on eggs, toast, fresh fruit, and tall glass of milk, just something quick, but healthy. Well my friends, I think I may have hit the healthy breakfast jackpot! I was given the opportunity to try Yopa! Authentic Greek Nonfat Yogurt, and not only do I love it, but the kiddos love it too!
Yopa! Yo Crunch offers a fun alternative to the go to breakfast bars and toaster tarts. You get healthy Greek yogurt with fruit mixed with a nice crunchy mix of nuts and granola for a nice rounded out light breakfast or snack. The packaging is wonderful...you can take it with you if needed and mix when you are ready!
Simply stir your yogurt, then add in the nuts and granola, and eat up!
Kate loves it, and I am so happy about that! Her favorite is definitely the strawberry, but I will be buying a variety of flavors for the rest of us!
She gets a nice well balanced breakfast before school or a healthy snack after school, and this mama is happy!
Speaking of balance, gold medalist Gabby Douglas is an expert, and she's challenging you to take the Yopa! Taste Challenge where you can win a variety of prizes, including $10,000! Just "like" Yopa! on Facebook for a chance to win.
Here are a few additional facts about Yopa!
From the innovative minds behind YoCrunch yogurt comes new Yopa! authentic Greek yogurt. You might ask what makes Yopa! different from other Greek yogurts. They’re committed to producing the best yogurt, with farm-fresh, regionally-sourced milk from dairies close to where they make it. It takes four gallons of milk to make one gallon of Yopa!™ yogurt, but they think you’re worth it.
Once they created the perfect, authentic, strained Greek recipe, they searched for just the right toppings to go with the real vanilla or fruit used for each flavor. By pairing nine whole grain granola, toasted Blue Diamond almonds or even dark chocolate, they created the ideal balance of yogurt, flavors and toppings. Or as they like to call it – “Balance Perfected.”
The Benefits of Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt, and particularly Yopa!, is a great source of protein. The 3.5 oz cups contain at least 16% of the recommended daily allowance of protein, while the 5.3 oz cups contain at least 26% of the recommended daily allowance. Other benefits of Yopa! are:
Good source of calcium
0g of cholesterol and trans fat
Made with 5 cultures and 3 probiotics
No preservatives or artificial colors (and only one product has artificial flavor – vanillin)
In addition to this product hitting the shelves of a store near you, there’s also a great promotion taking place 3/1 through 4/15: "Like Us on Facebook and you could win $10,000!" Consumers can enter daily for a chance to win all that cash as well as prizes like Gabby Douglas (we love her!) signed autobiographies.
So what do you think? Wanna give Yopa! a try???
