Chobani Review...and a GIVEAWAY!

Hopefully everyone is recovering from their Thanksgiving weekend of indulgence :) I had an awesome time at home filled with the family time I've been craving and (way too much) good food. Now I'm back home and trying to get my eating back on track...eating normal sized meals at normal times and whatnot! Thankfully, it's been a little bit easier to do with the pack of greek yogurt that Shari from Chobani sent me.

I LOVE yogurt and eat it daily, usually with granola or cereal and sometimes fruit mixed in. I'm not very particular when it comes to yogurt brands, but I do have a special love for greek yogurt. I tried it for the first time while in London last summer and I was amazed by how much better it is than standard yogurt. It is much thicker and creamier, and tastes better overall. Furthermore, it's much higher in protein (18 grams total) than typical yogurt, keeping you fuller for longer (and hence a good choice for breakfast, snack, or lunch!). I've been a little resistant to buy greek yogurt regularly, mostly because it's significantly more expensive than regular yogurt. But like I said, Shari was gracious enough to send me a whole pack of Chobani yogurts to try. I think I might be a greek yogurt convert...it's worth the extra cash!

As always, I've been loving them with granola mixed in, but another great thing about greek yogurt is its versatility! Greek yogurt can be used in baking and cooking, often replacing higher fat ingredients such as sour cream. Stay tuned for a recipe later this week where I incorporate the plain Chobani into our dinner!

The best part about Chobani?! They're willing to send some to YOU to try too! That's right, Shari has graciously offered to send one reader a CHO-case of their fruit flavors (peach, blueberry, & strawberry). So how can you be a lucky receiver of some Chobani Greek Yogurt?
