Here we goooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! My Biochem exam is at 8am and I’ve got Foodservice at 3:30. Lots of studying in between!
I got up 20 minutes early this AM and did 20 minutes of yoga (Hip Opening Flow) to get my body primed for the day. Everyone has 20 extra minutes! Then a shower. And then I quick pre-made breakfast before I hit the road:
The overnight sit:
- 1/3 cup Stonyfield low-fat plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1/3 cup raw rolled oats
- 4 chopped strawberries
I wanted to keep adding on the toppings for fun, but I am planning to have a post-exam snack and coffee at EarthFare and decided to save a few for then.
Last minute cramming
Summertime, Summertime, Sum-Sum, Summertime!
I’ve got a ton of fun things scheduled for this summer (Bermuda, wedding, Boston), but the focus of today’s post is BlogHer! I’m heading up to Chicago July 23-26 to attend the conference as a spokesblogger for BOCA’s Balanced Living site. (<— me doing yoga and de-stressing! ) I had a blast at BlogHer last year and can’t wait to return!
But I recently gained a second sponsor: Stonyfield’s Oikos Greek Yogurt! I’ll be sharing coupons and of course, raving about Greek yogurt 🙂
As I said in this post, I re-tried Oikos recently and was surprised by how deliciously fluffy the texture was compared to when I had it last. It was like a whipped buttercream frosting! When I spoke with my contact at the company, she said they have a new manufacturer and a slightly different texture – definitely for the better!! Sure, Oikos is a little more expensive than other yogurts, but when you consider that this yogurt is the only organic Greek yogurt (and dairy + meat are industries I feel strongly about buying organic) combined with the dozens of efforts Stonyfield does to stay green (think solar panels on plants, wind energy, tree planting, offsetting 100% of CO2 emissions to be carbon neutral, and more), I feel good about supporting the company.
With that said, I’ve got a giveaway to share this AM! Some fun Oikos gear, plus the most important piece: coupons!!
- Stonyfield Farm Yogurt Cookbook
- Reusable grocery bag
- Reusable lunch bag
- Oikos aluminum water bottle
- Preserve toothbrush
- Tire pressure gauge ( super important!!)
- 4 Free 5.3 oz. Oikos coupons
- 2 Free 16 oz. Oikos coupons
- $4 in coupons for other SF products
- Healthy recipe make over magnet
You know the deal: leave a comment to win, and for fun, share your favorite way to eat Greek yogurt
(NOTE: Due to the volume of comments on giveaways, I won’t be responding to questions – save ‘em for my lunch post!)
