Dannon Light and Fit Tiramisu, Stop N Shop & Getting Healthy

“I participated in an Event and Blogger Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dannon. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All views and opinions are my own, and do not necessarily represent those of Dannon.”

It is no secret that I love a good snack. I am overweight but I'm working on it. I won a fitbit from work and since I don't have to take it off to charge it every night, I actually end up wearing it the next day to count my steps! Factor in cutting out soda and making sure I drink the recommended amount of water and I'm doing better every day.  The hardest part of getting healthy for me has been giving up my favorite snacks. Funfetti cupcakes, potato chips, a rich slice of chocolate cake... yum!

It's hard to choose better for you foods because so often, they don't taste nearly as good! Dannon has figured out the solution to my problem making delicious, Dannon® Light & Fit® Greek nonfat yogurt in one of my favorite flavors-- Tiramisu! It is so delicious and is a satisfying alternative to something loaded up with sugar and empty calories!

Dannon® Light & Fit® Tiramisu Flavored Greek nonfat yogurt has 12 grams of protein, 80 calories and 0% fat per 5.3 oz serving so it helps me stick to my new lifestyle while satisfying my sugar loving taste buds and shrinking away those daily temptations and cravings.

My local Stop & Shop was having a tasting of the new flavor so I had to try it out! I have always been hesitant of yogurt because I have such consistency issues with foods but I was super excited and impressed by the creamy deliciousness of Dannon Greek Yogurt! It was the most perfect consistency-- I didn't have to shake it and mix before enjoying it-- it was perfect. 

While at Stop & Shop, a nutritionist walked us through the store pointing out 'better for you' snack options. Stick to berries, leafy greens, and fresh produce.
Berries on my yogurt... yum!

She also reminded us to make sure we are eating all of the colors of the rainbow to make sure we're getting a full range of vitamins from our foods and to really look at labels while purchasing our foods.  Stop & Shop is making it even easier for those like me who struggle with making good choices, pre-cutting produce and offering both bulk and single serve portions which are great to grab on the go.

This label was for gluten free ciabatta rolls which qualifies as a "healthy choice" at Stop N Shop and the label lets you know as you are shopping!  This label also indicates that it is a gluten free product. It makes it a lot easier to "grab" things in the aisles with that type of information just at the ready.Between the easy to read labels from Stop & Shop and the delicious treat like good for you snacks by Dannon, I am sure I'll be watching the pounds fall off! Now excuse me while I go indulge in some Tiramisu (yogurt!)!

Support The Children's Miracle Network with Pampers & Wal-Mart : GIVEAWAY!

I love when doing things that I normally would, or purchasing things I already planned on buying, help out really great causes. I was happily surprised after purchasing some Pampers diapers for the Little Man at Walmart to find out that Proctor and Gamble have pledged $20,000, alongside Wal-Mart, to the Children's Miracle Network. I was really excited to know that my Pampers purchase would help support the amazing work Children's Miracle Network is doing.

I love how easy this infographic makes it to see just how amazing Children's Miracle Network is.
I have blessed enough that I have never, nor had any family members, need the assistance of Children's Miracle Network, but there are thousands of stories of young children who are receiving care from this amazing organization.

Information about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals:
·         Your support helps provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids every year
·         One in 10 kids in North America is treated by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year
·         Every day, member hospitals treat 16,000 children in emergency rooms
·         Every hour, member hospitals provide surgery for 97 children
·         U.S. members hospitals provided $3.4 billion in charity care in 2012

I am so excited to shop at Wal-Mart, knowing that my purchases will continue to support The Children's Miracle Network.  P&G is so excited about their partnership with Wal-Mart and Children's Miracle Network that they are giving away a $25 Wal-Mart gift card to one of my readers!

All you have to do is leave a comment: Which fact really stuck out to you? Contest will run until July 2nd, US residents only.
