June has officially arrived and with it, the open-ended sunshine, fun and entertainment of summer. The kids are out of school, the temperatures are heating up and it is time to pack away the sweatshirts and jeans so that our closets are filled with shorts and tank tops instead.
But the downfall to shedding all of my extra layers of clothing means that all of the slacking that I've done with exercise and maintaining a balanced diet is more evident. Yikes! Where did these extra pounds come from?
Fortunately, looking and feeling our best and including a healthy lifestyle is much more attainable when we have the right tools... and can be as easy as picking up a spoon! This spring, nationally recognized dietician Keri Glassman and Dannon Oikos are encouraging you to 'Grab a Spoon 'til June' with rich and creamy 0% fat Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt.
Dannon Oikos is a creamy-thick nonfat yogurt, made through a traditional Greek straining process which makes it an excellent source of protein. Each cup of Dannon Oikos contains twice the amount of protein of regular lowfat yogurt and 0% fat (with the exception of Dannon Traditional varieties)*.
And have you tried it? It is beyond creamy and delicious, while being luscious and flavorful... you just can't beat it for taste, nutrition and helping you stay on track for your weight loss goals.
To help you even further stay on track towards your goals while at the same time adding spice to your normal routine, the Grab a Spoon 'til June campaign is featuring Keri Glassman and some great tips for shaking up your routine:
- Every Meal Is A "Monday Morning." Focus on eating better, one meal at a time. Otherwise it can be easy to get discouraged – forget the worry! Your only mission: Make the next meal you eat nutritious, balanced and satisfying.
- Don't Eat Around A Craving. Honor your craving with a conscious indulgence — take a few deep breaths and find a healthy alternative! Try satisfying your sweet tooth with Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt, it is nutritious but still has an incredible taste.
- No-Excuses Exercise. Sometimes the biggest barrier to working out is just getting there so a good option can be to make it as easy as possible — throw in a workout DVD or even going for a walk takes away excuses and gets you moving!
- Satisfying Proteins. A moderate-protein balanced diet with a reasonable amount of fiber, carbohydrates and the appropriate amount of healthy fats is the best way to maintain a healthy weight. Dairy is a great source of protein, try a creamy Greek nonfat yogurt like Dannon Oikos — it has twice the protein of regular lowfat yogurt*.
