Yogurt to the Rescue!

Traveling can be fun & exciting as you stay at fun places, see amazing things and eat great food. Unfortunately a lot of the food that restaurants serve are not great for the body. I can testify to this fact after spending a weekend away at BlogHer. The good news was Dannon Oikos was the Expo Hall at BlogHer, where I stopped by daily and tried a different flavor.

When I travel I try to eat one serving of Greek yogurt a day, usually either first thing in the morning or a snack before lunch. Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt contains active cultures. Active cultures are also known as probiotics or healthy bacteria that fight harmful bacteria and aid in digestive health, plus enhance our immune system.  A diet rich in probiotics is especially important for women, as the healthy probiotic bacteria helps to prevent and cure yeast infections and urinary tract infections.

Here are the various ways I enjoy my Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt – not the right out the cup isn’t delicious. 😉 First, mix canned sardines (high omega-3) with plain Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt and sautéed onion. (Super yummy!) Second, toss cubes of cooked eggplant with plain nonfat Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt, chopped mint leaves, garlic (detox food) and cayenne. Third, add chopped cucumber and dill to plain Greek yogurt and use as a dip for raw vegetables, or serve it atop grilled hormone-free chicken. Lastly, layer Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt, berries and low-fat granola in a parfait glass.

How do you like your Dannon® Oikos® Greek yogurt?
