Over the past year or so, I have been on a quest to lose weight and try to live a healthier lifestyle. I have lost some weight and I am pretty happy with where I am now, but I am still working on making healthy food choices on a day to day basis. If you are a busy mom like me, you know how difficult it can be to find an easy, nutritious snack option that still tastes great.
One snack that I always have in my refrigerator is yogurt, and I generally have a cup every day between breakfast and lunch. Not only does yogurt taste good, it is good for me too. Activia by Dannon is one such yogurt. Activia, with Bifidus Regularis, helps naturally regulate your digestive system when consumed daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. I have always had some digestive issues, and I am a firm believer in the benefits of probiotics like the one you find in Activia.
Nutritious snacking recently became even more delicious with Activia Selects! These new styles of Activia can satisfy your sweet cravings, while still containing the probiotic benefits that Activia is known for. Activia Selects are available in Parfait, French, French with Fruit on the Bottom and Greek.
I was asked to try one of the new Activia Selects, and I decided to go with the Parfait in Vanilla. On my recent cruise, I became quite fond of yogurt with granola in it, so I was looking forward to being able to enjoy it at home.
Yum! I enjoyed this yogurt so much that my refrigerator now contains several cups of it. It tastes great, is very creamy, and the granola adds a nice crunch to it. The Activia Selects Parfait is a delicious twist on regular yogurt!
This yogurt contains 220 calories and 3 grams of fat. While I normally stick to yogurt that has lower calories and no fat, I really enjoyed the taste of this yogurt because it does not contain artificial sweeteners. It is definitely worth the trade off.
If you are looking for a nutritious snack that tastes great, I highly recommend giving the Activia Selects Parfait a try!
Now when you purchase Activia Selects yogurt, you can help Dannon support the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF). Each specially marked package of Dannon yogurt contains an under-the-lid code that you can enter at http://www.cupsofhope.com/. Dannon will donate at least 10 cents for each code entered to NBCF, and the Activia Selects codes are with a 20 cent donation.
