A meatless month and a new giveaway!

Yep, I’ve officially been meatless for over a month now. Crazy, huh? To be honest, I barely noticed. It’s been easy to pass up meat, all I had to do was alter my lunches just a bit and continue to cook healthy dinners. And I love tofu, so that helps!

Yesterday I received this huge package in the mail.

What’s inside?

You all know how much I love Chobani greek yogurt. I’ve been mentioning it on my blog since I discovered it, and it’s pretty much my breakfast standard. While I only usually eat the strawberry (my new fave) and pomegranite, I was thrilled when I received new flavors to try out.

Sorry for the bad pic, but in there is honey, plain, vanilla, all which I’ve never tried! I absolutely love a company that appreciates their loyal customers. Hard to find these days, that’s for sure. And guess what, they are sponsoring a new giveaway! Yep, the person who wins this one will receive 12 VIP coupons (that means 12 free cups of yogurt!).

Getting an entry is simple.

First, add me to your Google reader, subscribe to my blog, or just promise me you’ll read it πŸ™‚

Second, browse Chobani’s websiteΒ and let me know which flavor is your favorite or that you’d like to try.

Second, tell me your favorite way to enjoy greek yogurt (whether it be a yogurty mess, a random ingredient for a recipe, for dip, etc).

Leave a separate comment for each.

Contest will end Sunday, 5pm ET.

    I like to use Greek yogurt in place of sour cream for veggie dips. I love the consistency and the taste. Plus is so much healthier! πŸ™‚

    I eat Chobani for breakfast or an afternoon snack either with a Tablespoon or so of Coco Chia or over a cup of sliced strawberries and blueberries and sprinkled with toasted almonds. Soooo yummy!

    the best use that i have for greek yogurt is in lieu of mayo or sour cream in dips. it’s just as good (if not better) and makes a huge nutritional difference!!!

    Ok, can you believe I’ve never had Chobani? I know, I KNOW! I shop at Trader Joe’s and they don’t sell it there. However, I’d love to use these coupons at a regular grocery store to finally be able to try it! The honey one sounds delicious!

    congrats, by the way, on a meatless month. I’m just finishing my first meatless week and even though I’m going out of town this weekend, I’m hoping to keep it going!

    I eat plain Chobani almost every day, but I do love the pomegranate! I could really use these coupons!

    I love the Strawberry Banana flavor. It’s so decadent. And I couldn’t find a good strawberry banana yogurt for years, but this one hits the spot.

    My favorite way to eat Chobani is:
    1. Scoop plain Chobani into bowl.
    2. Pour on granola.
    3. Blob on nut butter.
    4. Spoon on jam or preserves.
    5. Add fruit.
    6. Enjoy the delicious blend of flavors and textures.

    I love greek yogurt in a fruit and yogurt parfait.

    My latest kick though is as a veggie dip. The newest concoction is greek yogurt with a squirt of wasabi mustard. YUM!

    My favorite way to enjoy greek yogurt is mixed with some granola and blueberries in the morning for breakfast.

    i also have a recipe for cucumber salad that uses plain greek yogurt. i like that recipe because i’m growing cucumbers in my garden and it gives me a new way to enjoy them!
