If only, I had video footage of my face when I spotted GREEK YOGURT in the latest President’s Choice Insider’s Report. It was probably a little like this – 😯
You have NO idea how excited I was!
I’ve been reading healthy-living blogs for over a year now and all this time have been wanting to try Greek Yogurt. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been as readily available to us Canadians as it is for my American friends. A few months ago, I spotted a Liberté brand of Greek yogurt, but I wasn’t too fond of the $5.99 price tag, so chose to move on. The moment that I saw that PC had their own Greek yogurt, for only $3.99, it immediately went on my grocery list!
I was like a little speed demon making my way through my local Loblaws on Saturday. I walked in the store and made a beeline right over to the yogurt section to find only 3 tubs left! Phew!
So here we have it, PC impresses me yet again….Greek yogurt!!
The protein content of this stuff just rocks my socks!
I was pretty gung-ho to give this a shot, so I prepped myself a little bowl that afternoon.
We had bought some new granola (which we also saw in the insider’s report) which I thought would go great with the yogurt.
So I mixed some in with a few fresh strawberries and a couple of shakes of this maple sugar that I have.
Being my first time trying Greek yogurt, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Boy was that tart! To be completely honest, it didn’t exactly blow my socks off at first bite. But I ate the entire thing knowing that it was good for me. 😉
Last night, I decided to give it another shot for my pre-bed snack. I don’t usually snack after supper, but we ate fairly earlier than I am used to and by 9pm, I was starving! This time I tried some frozen blueberries (which I thawed for about 20 sec in the microwave first), granola and a few shakes of the maple sugar.
This combination was much better! It tasted like a dessert!
I definitely think this new Greek yogurt is going to become a staple to our weekly grocery list. It’s only been 2 days, and we have eaten about 3/4 of the tub! Here’s hoping the $3.99 price tag isn’t temporary!
