Activia Greek

I love yogurt. I believe most people like yogurt in some form or flavor. The Dannon Company has now combined my two favorite kinds of yogurt; Greek yogurt and Activia! I love the thick, rich flavor of Greek yogurt and the digestive benefits of Activia. The nice part of Greek Activia is that it comes in a variety of flavors so there is bound to be a flavor for everyone! I have tried the Orchard Peach, the Raspberry, and the Vanilla. The other flavors include Garden Blueberry, Strawberry Patch, and Tropical Fruit.

I have to say that the Raspberry Greek Activia is amazing. As amazing as this yogurt tastes, the health benefits are even better!! Dannon Activia Greek yogurt has 0g of fat, 12g of protein and only 130 calories per container (each container is 5.3oz which is a nice serving size!). As for the digestive benefits, Activia Greek has the probiotic culture Bifidus Regularis, which helps regulate your digestive system. I am someone who has digestive issues and I love the fact I get a great tasting yogurt and a food that will help, not hinder, my stomach problems!! So if you love yogurt, especially Greek yogurt, and want a delicious and nutritious yogurt, try Dannon Activia Greek yogurt-it’s amazing!

Ziploc Giveaway!

As many of you may know, I am in the process of losing weight.  (I’ve lost 25 lbs in 9 weeks!  Go me!)  That is why I was super excited to tell you how Ziploc makes eating fresh convenient.  They also help you  get more out of your meals by extending the freshness of food ingredients and leftovers. Available in an assortment of sizes, shapes and seals, Ziploc offer families a variety of smart, quality food storage solutions.

Ziploc Perfect Portions Bags are their latest innovation.  They are perfect for storing and freezing bulk foods and individual portions of poultry, meat, cookie dough and more.  I love them because I can portion out just what I need to eat.  You simply put your hand in the bag and pick up your serving size.  You then turn the bag inside out to easily create portions.  You can then put the individual bags into a Ziploc freezer bag to freeze until you need to use them.

The launch of Ziploc Perfect Portions is just one party of their initiation of the the Great American FreshOver Project.  This is a two year healthy eating initiative encouraging families to “freshover” their outlook on eating.  Ziploc and Rachael Ray are offering families recipes, tips, ways to use Ziploc products, and even a chance to win a trip for two to meet Rachel Ray.  (I’ve met Rachel Ray.  She’s really nice.)

Since I am such a fan of Ziploc, I have arranged for one of my lucky readers to win a Ziploc Prize Pack.  In it, you will find:

  • New Ziploc® Perfect Portions™ Bags
  • Ziploc® Freezer Bags
  • Rachael Ray Recipes
  • 1-2 other Ziploc® products (random selection)

Healthy Steps Serving Set

The keys to eating right are easy; fill half of your plate with fruits, vegetables or salad and control those portions on the other half of the plate. If you serve too much food, you eat too much food. The Healthy Steps Portion Control Serving Set does all the work for you. Serve the perfect portion sizes of protein, vegetable and starch right from the stove.

The Healthy Steps Portion Control Serving Set stylish appearance is perfect for serving guests and family alike. Since portion sizes are tucked away on the heads of the tools, no one will know you are measuring! The Serving Set Contains: 1 slotted spoon for vegetables, 1 solid spoon for starches such as potatoes or rice, and 1 spatula for protein. For vegetables and starches, fill the spoon but do not heap. For proteins, use the spatula head as a guide for the proper portion size. Serve proteins in portions equal to the size of a deck of cards. These are also heat resistant to 400o F / 204o C. and also are dishwasher safe.

I love this serving set. With restaurant serving size distorting what a true “serving size” is, this takes the guesswork out of serving yourself and your family. Portion control is the best way to manage and maintain a healthy weight, and you want to make it as easy as possible. I also love that nobody would even guess this set is telling you the serving size!

The Healthy Steps Serving Set is super easy to use and love how easy it is to now tell what a serving size really is!
