I have been an ambassador with the Life Made Delicious program for a little over three years now. Not only do I get to enjoy the multitude of great recipes on the Life Made Delicious website, and share my experiences with family, friends and readers of this blog, I get the opportunity to test out new General Mills food products. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sign up to try the new Yoplait® Source® Greek Yogurt. I received 4 coupons ($5 value each) to cover the costs of the yogurt and a $100 gift card for Lululemon. Keep reading because you will have a chance to win the same simply by leaving a comment on this pos!
I used one of the coupons to buy a Yoplait® Source® Greek Yogurt 8-pack, 4 x 100 g each of vanilla and lemon flavoured yogurt. I reasoned that both flavours could be used as a dessert topping and at only 50 calories each with 2X more protein, it would be perfect for snacking especially at our vacation home where I haven't made yogurt yet. This yogurt is fat and cholesterol free making it a guilt free, healthy snack! There is no added gelatinOh and while this is not important to everyone, it is to us...the containers can go into the recycle box unlike some single serve yogurt containers.
The Yoplait® Source® Greek Yogurt is a thick, fully bodied, creamy yogurt. I liked both flavours that were light and refreshing, not overpowering. Both could be used in so many ways because they pair nicely with fruits. I'm tweaking a light sauce/salad dressing using the lemon yogurt and blueberries that would like be equally tasty using raspberries or citrus zest in place of the blueberries. I will be looking for the Yoplait® Source® Greek Yogurt at our vacation home in Florida.
I can't tolerate eating anything within at least an hour of waking. So, I start my mornings and right now that means 4 AM with a glass of water followed by herbal tea and finally a coffee before eating. Eating a high protein, hot breakfast on the weekend isn't a real problem but neither of us want bacon and eggs on a daily basis. My husband has no problem eating as soon as he gets up and he occasionally eats dry cereal, something I don't. We both occasionally eat hot cereal like Red River. I make waffles, pancakes and French toast from scratch in larger batches then freeze to use as needed. All reheat nicely in the toaster. This morning I heated a high fibre waffle then topped with a little 100% pure maple syrup, fresh berries and Yoplait® Source® Greek Yogurt vanilla flavoured yogurt. Not pictured is the organic banana and cranberry juice that accompanied my breakfast. It was not a heavy breakfast as I prefer lighter breakfasts usually fruit and yogurt or cottage cheese. It was however a low fat breakfast rich in fibre, protein, and antioxidants.
