    I'm Lauren and this is a blog dedicated to living life with a healthy balance. I love to run, strength train, bike and just be downright active. I'm a marathoner as of April 24, 2010 and am currently looking forward to qualifying for the Boston Marathon.

    I absolutely love to eat and enjoy great food but doing it all in moderation. You'll see healthy, organic foods on here frequently but you'll also run into things such as pizza and sweets. I believe you can have it all... just not all at once.

    I'm always learning and discovering new foods, recipes, workouts and ways to live a healthy lifestyle. Join me on my journey towards becoming my healthiest self.

Oikos Newbie

Since I’m breaking into the Greek yogurt world, I bought 4 Stoneyfield’s Oikos Greek yogurt on sale the other day at Whole Foods. I was pretty excited about trying some new flavors.

This morning sounded like a great morning to try the honey on the bottom flavor. I think I’ll be a huge yogurt fan this summer in the hot weather! It’s cool and refreshing.

I added some of my Bear Naked granola for a good crunch.

The texture is growing on me! Oikos actually has a much smoother, less chalky texture than Yoplait’s. I’m a fan for sure! I can’t wait to try my other flavors. And maybe I’ll start incorporating the plain yogurt into regular recipes. Who knows… I’m learning.

Back to work people! See you at lunch!

Do you like flavored yogurt or non-flavored?

  1. I like just plain Greek yogurt. The flavored stuff tends to be so high in sugars and too sweet for me. I grew up on plain, homemade yogurt though. I know lots of people prefer the flavored.

  2. I really like plain vanilla. Not plain – don’t even like it sweetened, but I love ff vanilla (even greek vanilla bc it packs more protein and less sugar). If I eat the vanilla, I can pair it with anything!

  3. Winn Dixie has a ‘no sugar added’ vanilla that I LOVE LOVE LOVE…and I, too, add granola or some sort of cereal for crunch!

  4. I like vanilla, but not French vanilla … I usually prefer a flavour.
