It’s a new year and in the kitchen, perhaps more than any other time of year, it’s all about keeping it lite. For some lucky (and enlightened/empowered) individuals keeping it lite is the norm. It’s little wonder though that for the rest of us, keeping it on the lite side of life is a challenge. Our culture provides us with an over-abundance of choices and opportunities to over-indulge at every corner. Some do it with their opulent McMansions. Others feed their vanity with their mini-mortgages on four wheels and chic, tailored clothing, furniture, and accessories. Yet perhaps it is in the kitchen and at the hundreds of thousands of fast food drive-up windows across our land where over-indulging has taken its greatest toll on our society; particularly on our health and in our wallets. Today’s post features a tasty, colorful, and healthy call back to reality. A call that takes us back to the basics and back to sound, healthful choices.
Combining the restorative and anti-oxidant properties of the ancient pomegranate with nutrition packed almonds, along with the queens of all super foods – blueberries, this parfait is held together by the miracle food known as Greek yogurt. Strained to remove the whey, Greek yogurt provides a thick and creamy base of protein, probiotics, and other nutrients such as Vitamin B12, iron and potassium. All of these components help contribute to a healthier meal while promoting wellness and warding off obesity and associated health problems like hypertension and diabetes.
We like Chobani Greek yogurt for it’s all natural ingredients. You won’t find milk that has been adulterated with rBST (bovine growth hormone) nor will you taste any artificial sweeteners in their yogurt. Chobani doesn’t use these chemical additives that have been questioned by health experts as contributing to breast and other cancers. What you will find with Chobani is taste and quality. This parfait is simple to make, it is all natural, and it is all delicious. It doesn’t get much better than that. Oh, one more thing, it’s great for you.
Drop by the Chobani site. It’s loaded with great information and ideas about who they are, what they make, and many ways to enjoy good taste and good health.
