I know you all are thinking “get on with already!” What’s today’s thankful Thursday? Well hold your horses, ya maniacs. Today’s Thankful Thursday helps the ol’ B.o.B.-o stay healthy in the poop chute. Yay poop! (Please avert your eyes if you don’t want to read about poop. Or more specifically me pooping, cause you know girls don’t poop and stuff. Well, except for you Mrs. Shut Up and Run.) In fact, studies say that yogurt helps promote a healthy digestive tract (whatever that means). Not to mention that it has lots of calcium and protein that we all need.
So, all of the above being said, I was looking for a non-sugary yogurt and couldn’t bring myself to eat those yucky low-fat/low-sugar watery ones when sure enough Big Sis comes through. Big Sis introduces me to ….ta dah… FAGE All Natural Nonfat Greek Strained Yogurt. Yes, it’s plain, BUT if you mix in a Splenda or two it’s delish! It’s thick and creamy and the Splenda gives it a hint of sweet. They also make a version that comes with fruit you mix in, but I haven’t had that one yet.
Try it. I promise it’s yummy.
Today I am thankful for:
What are you thankful for today?
Okay, now I can't get 'poop chute' out of my head!
Yeah, Splenda will turn you into a poop factory…
First off… gross.
Secondly, I think that's what Tsatziki is made out of. Have you ever tried that? Pretty sure you just add chopped cucumbers to that ^ stuff, and mix it all up. Quite popular in Astoria.
(strangely, whenever I eat it, it makes me poo)
Oh, girly! You're just now discovering this? You can also mix a bit of honey in it, which makes it delish! Oh, and it's great in smoothies if you freeze it first, then add banana and peanut butter and some ice cubes or add berries and ice cubes. Oh, and you can also make other healthy recipes with it. I have one for alfredo sauce and also one for chicken or tuna salad. This stuff is a staple item on my grocery list. Not only healthy but also versatile. If you want the recipes, shoot me an email.
Glad you found a good solution to your digestion issues!
Thanks for the poop shout out. Important to stay healthy in that department for sure!! I am thankful for a healthy one eyed dog, my BQ (of course), recovery, coffee.
hahahaha. I'm still giggling about poop chute. 🙂
okay you are my hero if you can stomach that.
I tried I really did. Can't do it.
I haven't tried fage yet, I'm stuck on Chobani. Greek yogurt is so delicious!
Today I am thankful for Green Tea! It's keeping me warm during this chilly weather!!
Poop chute, LMAO!
I can't get on the Greek Yogurt bandwagon – I don't know what it is, but not a fan. I am a pretty "regular" girl, and I do eat a lot of yogurt – hmmm….
I missed yesterday's post! Darn it! I just started wearing Asics and I wear the Gel Nimbus 12's – awesome! And, RoadRunnerSports.com has the best shoe return policy – yes, you can wear them for a month and if they don't work out, you can send them back and try a different pair. Since you have already bought yours, just keep that in mind for the next pair 🙂
Oh my god I love greek yogurt. Especially Fage 0%… with some berries and a little granola? With some homemade jam? With ANYTHING? Hell yes!
You go girl.
Yum! Greek yogurt is especially good when you add honey to it.
ditto on the honey in the greek yogart… I had that in a hostel in Athens once and it was amazing!
Greek yogurt is fantastic!! Try it with honey, granola, and a banana.
I'm thankful for running Ragnar with 12 friends in about 12 hours from now. Yeah, I know you've done it so I'm waiting to experience all you've told me about. Yeah, I'm scared. Yeah I'm freaked. But boy it's it going to be fun.
And THAT's what I'm thankful for today =)
