Benefits of Greek Yogurt + Chobani Giveaway
December 4, 2012 § 14 Comments
Many of my patients and clients have been making the switch to Greek yogurt in the past few years. Their reasons? Usually they tell me that they prefer the thicker consistency, have noticed it is higher in protein than other yogurts, or have just “heard” it is better for you. As a Dietitian, I agree with all of these reasons, AND have a few more of my own. Since Chobani offered to sponsor a giveaway to our readers, I decided to specifically highlight what I like about their yogurt:
- No Artificial Sweeteners or Preservatives
- 3 Different Types of Probiotics. Probiotics help promote digestive health and increases our immunity…perfect for winter!
- Calcium. Each 8 ounce container provides over 20% of your daily calcium needs. Everyone wants healthy bones, right?
- Chobani has a heart. 10% of all profits this company makes goes to charities worldwide. Now that’s a big deal!
My favorite way to use Greek yogurt?
I prefer the 0% plain variety for breakfast. I just add my own blueberries (frozen if I’m out of fresh), 1 tsp cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of almonds for a quick, yet balanced breakfast on the go. Yum!
Chobani has offered to send one lucky reader a case of their 16 ounce 0% yogurt Blends. To enter, just comment on this post telling us what your favorite way is to eat/use Greek yogurt AND follow me on Twitter: @LoriTheRD. Winners will be chosen and contacted this Friday, December 7th.Disclosure: I was not paid to write this post or promote Greek yogurt. Chobani simply appreciates Dietitians who blog and I think their Greek yogurt is pretty awesome.
