After having 5 kids, my body just isn’t what it used to be. I need to lose weight, and plenty of it. But, being a mom that breastfeeds means I have to be very careful about what kinds of foods I’m eating. I still need to get lots of nutrients so that I know I’m doing the best I can for Parker.
So, when MyBlogSpark sent me a fabulous “Fiber One Healthy & Fit Weight Management” gift bag that included a Fiber One yogurt VIP coupon (that got me a free 4-pack of Fiber One yogurt), a cooler pack, and an wonderful divided plate, cup, and plastic silverware set and asked me to review the included items, I got excited!
The plate is wonderful. The divided sections are great for portion control. And I love that it’s divided, because then none of my food touches! I can put my fruit, veggie, and main dish all on the same plate, put the lid on it and pop it in the fridge. Then, when it’s time for lunch, I just pop the lid off and enjoy! I’ve been making my lunch plate the night before and storing it in the fridge until the next day. This means I’m eating lunch every day, it’s healthy, and it’s just the right amount to give myself (and Parker!) the nutrients we need without going overboard. I’m not skipping lunch and just grabbing a few pretzels here and there throughout the day. I’m actually taking the time to be healthy.
The cup is fantastic. I’ve been using it to make (and enjoy!) yogurt smoothies as a nice snack during the day. It’s keeping me from eating things I shouldn’t, and they taste fantastic!
The plastic silverware is just too cool. With a fork, a spoon, and a knife all on one utensil, it is perfect for on-the-go snacks. They gave me 2, and they’re now the must-have items for every trip to the beach!
And then there’s the yogurt. I was honestly nervous about trying the new Fiber One yogurt. After all, if it tastes good, and it’s full of fiber, it has to be gross, right? That’s totally what I thought. After debating (for like 5 minutes, and driving my 12 year old crazy!), I finally opted to use the coupon to get a pack of Vanilla flavored yogurt.
Oh, wow! I honestly can’t believe that there are only 50 calories in each cup! They taste so good, and not at all like what I was expecting. The yogurt was creamy – no lumps at all – something the texture freak inside me loves. This yogurt gets 2 thumbs up from me, and I am NOT sharing this with my kids. 🙂
The new Fiber One yogurt is the only leading nonfat yogurt with 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber (20 percent of the Recommended Daily Value). It is also a good source of calcium and vitamins A and D, making this an all-around great choice for dieters and those watching their weight. Each cup includes the creamy, delicious taste you expect from Yoplait, and you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying it. Fiber One is available in a variety of flavors including, Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla and Key Lime Pie.
All this good stuff packed into one little container. This will quickly become a new favorite in our house. I’m just going to have to find somewhere in the fridge to hide it so my kids won’t steal it. Maybe behind the broccoli?
