New Things I Love

I recently fell in love with a couple of new things, so I thought I'd share them here with you.


First off, greek yogurt. I've discussed before how I don't really like regular yogurt, but I do like greek yogurt. My grocery store recently {finally} started carrying more selection of greek yogurt, so I've been sampling all the different brands.

Well, this one is by far my favorite:

Stoneyfield Organic Oikos Greek Yogurt. This one is nice and thick, creamy and smooth {some of the brands I tried were watery...yuck}. The honey flavor is by far my favorite. I'm not a big fan of the fruit version of any of the yogurts but I loooooove honey mixed in. This Stoneyfield Oikos comes with TONS of honey in the bottom and the serving size is just the right amount. One gripe I had with some other greek yogurt brands was that the portion size was too big or too small. As a bonus, it's organic! I seriously love this stuff!



Another thing I don't really like is juice {of any kind really, but especially pomegranate juice}. It's just too concentrated and sweet for me usually. Plus, I always feel like it's a waste of calories. When I do drink juice, I usually water it down or mix it with club soda to dilute it a bit. That's why when I stumbled upon this I was excited to try it:

Minute Maid Pomegranate Tea. This stuff is GOOD! It's only 40 calories per 8oz serving and it has the added benefit of antioxidants. EXCELLENT!

  2. Welcome to the "I love Greek yogurt" bandwagon! :) I agree that some brands are too watery, but Oikos is definitely a winner. I've been using plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream in recipes and it works out really well!
