Breakfast around here has become and informal event. Ever since Jillian decided it was NOT okay for me to feed her yogurt, we struggled eating breakfast in the kitchen with her in her high chair. Lately I've been pounding a Carnation Instant Breakfast and giving Jillian a NutriGrain bar or a bowl of Cheerios with raisins and a sippy cup (or two) of milk. I'm not thrilled about not having a "formal" breakfast time, seeing as how breakfast IS the most important meal of the day and all. I like oatmeal, and so does Jillian, but I just don't feel like having something hot for breakfast when it's sweltering outside. So when I got the opportunity to try Yoplait's new Fiber One yogurt for free, I jumped on it. Because we can all use a little more fiber in our diets right? I tried the Vanilla flavor, because I'm a little strange with textures. You know, yogurt that has fruit chunks in kind of freaks me out. Somehow, I just feel like yogurt should be smooth. I like fruit, just not in my yogurt. Same thing with soup. I like soups that are pureed. I don't like chunks in my soup, unless it's a potato soup. Yeah, I'm strange like that. Anyway. I really liked it! In the past I had tried Dannon's Activia and found that it had a different texture than "normal" yogurt. This tasted just like regular vanilla yogurt, one of my favorite flavors! Now I definitely have another healthy breakfast option! And even better, a fantastic snack for that "late-afternoon-I-really-don't-need-to-eat-right-before-dinner" craving. I wish my local grocery store would have had the key lime flavor...how good does THAT sound?
The health benefits of getting enough fiber in your diet are pretty impressive. I knew about the importance of it before, but when reading about them all in one place, well, WOW. I had never even thought about the benefits of fiber reaching to weight management by helping you feel more satisfied and helping to curb your hunger. This is SO a snack I can get behind. And I always feel hungry about an hour or so after drinking a breakfast shake. Ah...something filling in my tummy for breakfast!
MyBlogSpark is giving me the chance to give away a free trial of the Fiber One yogurt to three (3) of my lucky readers! And get this, not only do you get a coupon for a free four-pack of the yogurt to try, you get a gift pack too! They provided me with one, and I was totally impressed. It includes this awesome (this thing is super cool!) insulated lunch bag, a divided lunch tray with lid, a big lidded and measured drink cup with lid, and two sporks (who doesn't love sporks?). I know we'll be using our insulated lunch bad this coming weekend when we go to the beach!
