Lovin' My Greek Yogurts!

I've been wondering about "GREEK YOGURT" for quite some time. I've read a lot of blogs by "healthy eaters" that rave about it, but I've never been too quick to buy it for a couple of reasons. First, I loved my fake flavors (Key Lime Pie, Red Velvet Cake and so on) that was loaded with chemicals. I was clueless to the horrors of what I was putting in my body, especially with the aspartame (aka rat poison if you do your research). So I enjoy yogurt but must admit that since my change in lifestyle and trying to eat more "organic" or "clean", my choices are limited. I don't eat anything with aspartame in it and I try to eat fat free or lower fat. Yeah, you can see where I'm going with this... my choices are pretty limited.

Thank goodness for Stonyfield! They have at least a decent tasting and affordable organic fat free yogurt! But wait.... welcome to their GREEK YOGURT! I kind of fell into it, forgetting that this was even a possible "organic" option. And what to my wondering eyes should appear...... Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt in caramel! A delightful creamy vanilla yogurt with a thin layer of delicious caramel on the bottom. All natural, fat free, creamy delicious, delight!

Next thing you know, I'm already quite happy to find this delightful caramel dream when I come upon Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt with chocolate on the bottom. Okay, are you following me here? I've found not only the worlds creamiest and most delightful organic yogurt but yogurt with caramel on the bottom or chocolate! It's fat free, delicious, organic, and did I mention caramel or chocolate?! Yes, I'm in heaven!!!!

And the best part is that the Oikos is completely affordable! A 4 pack can be found at most grocery stores and I paid about $2.49. Once again, we stifle the common thought that eating "organic" or "clean" is unaffordable! If you're counting points® each serving comes out to 2 points® each, so it's very weight friendly! All I can say is "Thanks Stonyfield!"  Check out their website for coupons and more info on the products they offer! How can you NOT feel good about a company that truly does take our world into consideration when creating a nutritious and delicious treat like this? They have all kinds of freebies on their site, from coupons to screensavers!
Wish me luck on my journey to "eating clean" and  healthy!
