This has been a long winter – seems longer to me as I was unable to enjoy the summer and fall as much as I wanted due to 2 different fractures in my lower extremities. The decrease in mobility led me to become less fit than I would like, and spending hours at the computer hasn’t helped. I decided once the physio gave me the go ahead in January, I would start to get back to healthy and get fit.
I have tried to make it a point to get on the treadmill daily. Some days it is only for 20 minutes depending on what is happening and others it is for 45-60 minutes, but I do it! Along with exercising, I have tried to make sure I am eating healthy and nutritional foods.
Unfortunately, as with any diet, following a gluten free diet doesn’t necessarily mean that all the food is healthy, although I try to be!
I always try to make sure I eat a lot of whole, all natural foods, while cutting out processed foods. One of my go-to healthy snacks has always been yogurt- it helps me boost my calcium intake while giving me some of that healthy active bacterial culture to keep my belly healthy. 🙂
Yoplait has always been the trusted brand I buy as I know it is gluten free, and I honestly love it as does my daughter! When they came out with a Greek yogurt, I was excited about the opportunity to try it. Let me tell you, it has not disappointed! It comes in a 500g. container or a pack of 4x100g in a variety of flavours. The best part aside from the fabulous taste? It is only 50 calories per 100g! It also has 2x the amount of protein and has only 4g of sugar per 100g. This is perfect for anyone trying to cut calories and sugar intake. The strawberry was a big hit in this house, can’t wait to try the rest! It is so thick and creamy and loaded with fruit pieces – almost like eating dessert! 🙂
I generally have fruit first thing in the morning, so it was an extra treat to add the yogurt!
