It’s almost summer time. I love the hot weather and lounging by the pool with friends. This winter, however, has not been pretty. I haven’t exercised much and I’ve indulged in plenty of sweet treats as I worked on my photography skills. Hey, those treats have to be sampled after I bake them! Because of my indulgences I have packed on a few pounds that have left my clothes feeling, well, tight. I have to return to a sensible eating plan, but I still want to treat myself. Because Greek yogurt is a favorite in our house—everyone will eat it—I was happy to discover new Yoplait Greek 100 at Publix. This yogurt has the creamy, rich texture we love with only 100 calories.
One thing I love even more than saving calories, while still eating food that tastes good, is saving money. Publix is having a sale, beginning May 11th and running through May 31st, on Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt with 10 containers for $10. There are eight different flavors to choose from, including Black Cherry, Lemon, Mixed Berry, Peach, Tropical, Key Lime, Vanilla and Strawberry. I made the mistake of allowing the kids to choose and they picked up four containers of tropical because “the flavor sounded intriguing.” Whatever happened to picking up a variety so we could sample all the goods? I went back and picked up several more flavors so I could try them. These yogurts are good to eat by themselves but they are also good as a fruit dip or as the base of a lower calorie smoothie.
Did I mention Publix also has a coupon available in stores allowing me to save $1 off the purchase of ten yogurts? Since this is a Publix store coupon I was able to combine it with manufacturer’s coupons for additional savings. Score! We have plenty of yogurt snacks around our house now.
