I was going to wait until Saturday to post this so that I could title it Super Fruit Saturday (it just flows better than Super Fruit Friday) but I know how you guys operate and more of you read on Fridays than Saturdays.
Why do I care what day you’re reading? Because I have an awesome giveaway for you courtesy of Stonyfield Farms! Details at the end of the post! 😀
I started today out by waking up to the alarm I set for 5:15 to practice ashtanga. I was wide awake after turning off the alarm but had no desire to go practice. Given my crazy teaching schedule for the week, I thought it better to listen to my body and chill out rather than force myself to practice.
Breakfast at my desk was overnight oats in an almost empty almond butter jar. Yummmm….
It was a beautiful day in Charlotte. Temperatures in the high 70s and abundant sunshine. I came home to enjoy lunch al fresco!
Lunch was extra delicious. Grilled cheese with fresh mozzarella, spinach and peach hot pepper jam on ciabatta. An orange on the side.
I was really craving a kombucha after lunch but didn’t have any on hand and didn’t have enough time to stop for one. (My wallet thanked me for that.) I got creative at work.
I taught BodyPump after work and had so much fun! I love my evening classes because the energy of the members is through the roof. We were all smiles and sweat tonight. It was AWESOME! 🙂
Brandon and I took advantage of the nice weather and grilled.
We made chicken, tempeh and vegetables kabobs. Brandon coated his chicken with a Dizzy Pig rub and barbecue sauce. I marinated my tempeh in barbecue sauce. The veggie skewers featured mushrooms marinated in teriyaki, pineapple, green pepper and sweet onion.
Grilled potatoes and honey wheat French bread on the side. A great healthy dinner from the grill!
Now let’s get to that giveaway, shall we!?
A few weeks ago, Stonyfield Organic reached out to me about trying their new Oikos Super Fruits Greek yogurt.
Super Fruits is Stonyfield’s newest Oikos flavor and features pomegranate with raspberries and acai. I eat a lot of Greek yogurt so I happily agreed to try it out. I use Greek yogurt as not only a delicious breakfast or snack but also as a protein source since I try to limit my meat consumption. This little cup of yogurt has 13 grams of protein and just 130 calories!
The verdict? Honestly, I prefer plain Greek yogurt with my own mix-ins and toppings (so that I can control the sweetness) but I really enjoyed this yogurt. It is sweet but not overly so – it contained no more sugar than the Larabar I had for my snack today. It’s not as thick as some other Greek yogurts but is very creamy. The fruit is on the bottom and is stirred in. I would definitely buy the Super Fruits flavor again for an afternoon snack at work.
Here’s what’s included in the super fruits themed giveaway!
- 2 free coupons for Oikos Organic Super Fruits Greek Yogurt

Now, what do you have to do to enter to win? Let’s talk organics! In an effort to help consumers understand Stonyfield’s commitment to organics, their CE-Yo made a music video explaining why you should, “Just Eat Organic.” I would love for you to check out the video.
To enter the giveaway, TELL ME what organic means to you and how it fits into your lifestyle. I promise that I will do a post soon and discuss what it means to me.
