I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t like yogurt. By itself, yogurt can be a healthy snack, the start to a good morning as breakfast, or as the beginning of an awesome low fat smoothie. There are different, I mean tons of different, varieties out there and now to add to it all there is an even healthier option: Greek yogurt! Who knew yogurt could be healthier, right??   Yoplait is my favorite brand of yogurt and they have added Greek yogurt to their amazing selection of yogurt. It comes in a lot of different flavors and fruits to satisfy every taste bud.   One of my favorite parts of this delicious yogurt is that it is low in calories! These cute little cups have only 100 calories per serving! Greek yogurt, for those of you who have yet to try this type of yogurt, is a thicker consistency but really fills you up! My favorite is the Yoplait Greek 100 in strawberry. I have it as a snack after a workout, or as my breakfast with some granola on top, but I have also used it in baking! Not only is this yogurt delicious and nutritious, it is also
versatile! With only 100 calories, 0g of fat, and 10g of protein per serving, who wouldn’t love Yoplait Greek yogurt?!?

Surf Sweets

My kids love fruit snacks. However, a lot of what you find on the market has stuff you just don’t want them to have! However, I found the answer.

Surf Sweets are made with organic fruit and sweeteners. They are free of artificial flavors and colors too. They are also made without corn syrup! Surf Sweets are both gluten-free and casein-free and are also made in a facility free of the ten most common allergies. They also have Vitamin C in them (100% RDA of Vitamin C)! Best of all, they are made right here in the US.

But how do they taste?  Awesome.  We were sent several different packages to try, and my kids loved every single kind they had (so did my husband but I’m not sure if he wants me to mention that).  :)  I love that there is something out there for kids who have allergies.  Madison has a little boy in her class that is allergic to nuts, so I’ve learned how hard it is to find things that don’t have it in or not made at a facility that has them.

Surf Sweets are a snack I can stand behind.  They have several different varieties of snack (jelly beans, sour worms, gummy bears, fruity bears, gummy swirls, gummy worms, sour berry bears, etc), so there is something for everyone.  Go check them out — they are really good!

  • Treat minor cuts and wounds with honey’s antibacterial and antifungal properties.  Apply a small amount twice daily to a wound or burn to speed healing process.
  • Help a hangover by spooning a few tablespoons of honey on toast for breakfast.  The fructose speeds up the metabolism of alcohol.
