Now that the New Year is here, I’m looking forward to kicking-off the new decade in a positive and healthy way when it comes to my diet. I love the holidays but after a season of overindulging, by the time January 1st rolls around I’m usually ready to recharge and reset. And that means being more conscious of the foods that I eat and trying to stay active. New Year, New You, right?
My husband and I started working out again recently, which is great. It’s nice to have a workout partner- I wouldn’t be able to motivate myself half the time if it wasn’t for him! I’ve also been using an online calorie tracker for the first time. It’s been especially useful in helping me become more aware of my daily caloric intake and how to avoid hidden sources of added sugars (goodbye lattes!).
I’m ready to start fresh with my diet by incorporating plenty of nutrient-dense foods into my meals and one of those foods is definitely Greek yogurt. My yogurt of choice is FAGE Total Plain. It’s a delicious, all-natural Greek yogurt that comes in three different varieties of milk fat- 0%, 2% and 5%. I like to use the 2%, a low-fat yogurt that has the perfect balance of rich flavor and creamy texture. FAGE is made with only two ingredients- milk and live active yogurt cultures. Because of the straining process, it’s rich in protein, more so than traditional yogurt. It’s also Non-GMO Project Verified and a good source of calcium.
I love that FAGE Total 2% Plain has no added sugar. I much prefer to use plain yogurt and add my own toppings. That way I’m controlling the amount of sugar going into my dishes. FAGE Total Plain is also extremely versatile and can be used in a wide variety of dishes both savory and sweet. It’s one of the items I have stocked in my fridge at all times.
My Mango Peach Smoothie Bowl is the perfect way to kick off the New Year. A blend of FAGE Total Plain 2% and colorful fruit, this smoothie bowl is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. It’s the perfect breakfast dish to jumpstart your day in the morning or to cool off with after an afternoon workout. It’s even a great option to satisfy your sweet tooth at night if you’re looking for a healthy dessert. To top off my smoothie bowl, I like to add things like fruit, granola and coconut flakes but feel free to be creative and add your own favorite toppings.
