Voskos Greek Yogurt Giveaway

by on September 8, 2010 · 207 comments

Last week Voskos sent us a case of Greek yogurt. Because of Greek yogurt’s high protein content and numerous health benefits I was already a fan.  But I’d been buying the same flavors and had never taken the opportunity to try  the more eclectic sounding blends such as Exotic Fig and Honey Bean Vanilla. Luckily Voskos included those flavors in the sample case and to my surprise, they turned out to be my favorite.

Voskos

—–Exotic Fig was so delicious that I finished off the container.  This was surprising since I generally only like figs when they have the word “Newton” next to them.

—–As for the Honey Vanilla Bean, I thought I’d use it in muffins or pound cake, but it ended up being lunch. The texture was fantastic. It was thick and creamy as promised, but also extremely smooth, and I had to check the carton twice to make sure I was eating the non-fat kind.

—–As for the blended Blueberry, I was already familiar with that flavor and liked it, but the other two flavors were (in my opinion, of course) much better.

The plain varieties I tried were also very good, though I only took small tastes and used the rest for baking. I used some in a chicken dish and in muffins.  I have yet to make a yogurt pound cake, but it’s been on my list for a while.

 I really enjoyed my free yogurt and am even happier to have found some new flavors I’ll buy on a regular basis. Now it’s your turn to try some good Greek yogurt. For a chance at a 30 day supply in the form of coupons, tell me one activity that you look forward to and which you feel contributes to a healthy lifestyle. For instance, my answer would be walking I like walking much more than going to the gym and when the weather is nice, I look forward to it. Post an activity you enjoy in the comment section and I will have a friend or family member pick a number at random after Friday, September 10th at noon.

So again, this giveaway ends Friday September 10th at noon. You can post a comment after that but it will not be considered in the drawing. Also, this giveaway is limited to the USA. Voskos is only sold here anyway.

I always enjoy running near a beach when I’m on vacation! I live in Las Vegas and it usually really hot and the smell of car fumes isn’t exactly nice. The beach breeze, the sea salt smell, and the sound of the waves make the run so much more enjoyable!

Rina September 8, 2010 at 3:33 pm

I love cooking healthy meals (to counteract the damage done with flour, butter and sugar on most days). :)

Kim September 8, 2010 at 3:34 pm

I like walking in nice weather. However, I love my weighted hula hoop !!! It’s so much fun and you don’t realize how much you’re toning while doing it. After reading the posts, I think I am going to try Zumba too.

Becky Z September 8, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Definitely the spinach smoothie I have every morning. It’s such a delicious way to start the day, but still so good for me!

Julie N. September 8, 2010 at 3:36 pm

I enjoy getting out to the garden and weeding. Great exercise, and the veggies that result are great for me too!

Carole Resnick September 8, 2010 at 3:41 pm

I also enjoy going for a walk with Velcro each morning.

Sue September 8, 2010 at 3:45 pm

I have rediscovered bicycling. I love it so much I can only wonder why in the world I ever gave it up. I love riding FAST, and am working really hard at getting faster.

Clare September 8, 2010 at 3:56 pm

I love going for a brisk walk during my lunch hour. The weather is finally turning, and it’s so nice to unplug, get away from the computer and just enjoy the fresh air in the middle of the day.

susan brinza September 8, 2010 at 3:57 pm

I also love to walk or kickbox!

T. Martin September 8, 2010 at 4:03 pm

Meditation – As this world increasingly becomes a 24 hour information saturated place I think taking time out just to breath and think is essential to a healthy lifestyle. So much of one’s day can be spent in reactionary mode if we don’t take the time to just stop and assess.

Claire September 8, 2010 at 4:06 pm

I love swimming, and although I don’t get to do it much anymore, I always get so excited when I do!

brooke September 8, 2010 at 4:06 pm

I’m looking forward to the fall weather and throwing
the football with my boys. We are a busy bunch but will
always find some time to spend together on a nice sunny afternoon playing a little “light” football. It’s a blast!

Laura September 8, 2010 at 4:15 pm

I love ride our bikes on the greenway near our house and watch the leaves change colors along the way. We have 3 young ones, 1 rides his bike and the other two ride in the cart behind my husband. Its a great way to spend time as a family too.

Delia September 8, 2010 at 4:20 pm

I love going on a long run in the morning!

Annika September 8, 2010 at 4:26 pm

I love to run outside in the fall. The crisp air is very refreshing.

Beth L September 8, 2010 at 4:28 pm

I look forward to walking daily because I walk with my husband and it’s “our time together” each day.

Robbie September 8, 2010 at 4:40 pm

Having a black Lab that needs a walk each day gets me out of the house and I always feel better afterwards, even if it is 8:30PM and I just got the kids to bed.

beth September 8, 2010 at 4:45 pm

I enjoy a cup of green tea. I steep loose green leaves in hot water. After I finish the tea, I sometimes use a spoon to eat the plumped up leaves. If you have a good tea, the leaves will be tender and easy to eat.

alice September 8, 2010 at 4:51 pm

an activity i look forward to is going to yoga class. it’s very challenging but it’s worth it because i feel amazing afterwards

Megan September 8, 2010 at 4:55 pm

I really enjoy running. I have been semi-successful in getting my friends to run with me. We try to do a race a month. By running with friends, I am getting a physical and social benefit!

monika September 8, 2010 at 4:55 pm

I enjoy any walking in fresh air. It helps to clear the mind.

Mary September 8, 2010 at 4:55 pm

I take my two dogs to the dog park and instead of standing around, we walk and walk and walk. I walk for over an hour and we are so happy to do that every day. And the dogs sleep wonderfully.

Carol September 8, 2010 at 4:57 pm

I like to lift weights. I makes me feel strong even after I have had too many sweets! LOL!

Jane September 8, 2010 at 5:00 pm

I do a workout video every morning. I enjoy working out in private because it doesn’t matter what my hair or make-up (or lack thereof) looks like, and I can literaly roll out of bed and start my workout in less than ten minutes. I always wear a cute workout outfit, though. That is a must! :)

kayla September 8, 2010 at 5:09 pm

i really enjoy running along the beach!

Kelly September 8, 2010 at 5:10 pm

I absolutely love lifting weights at night before I go to bed. Since I started 5 months ago I’ve seen an enormous difference, and feel it too in my strength! Wonderful!

Nancy September 8, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Taking a walk as well. We do this after dinner with our three year old son. Fresh air, quiet neighborhood, talking…it’s just wonderful. Thanks for the giveaway and all the great recipes.

suzanne September 8, 2010 at 5:18 pm

I love to run outside when it is cool. I am so ready for summer to end so I can stop running on the treadmill.

dorian storbeck September 8, 2010 at 5:26 pm

I love to walk! I just moved to San Francisco and one of my favorite things to do is just go out for a reallllllly long walk (sometimes up to 8 miles!) around the city, zigzagging through the streets and parks and looking at the city art!

Stacy September 8, 2010 at 5:29 pm

I enjoy walking! My husband and I get up early every morning but Sunday, and go with our dog on a 2.5 to 3 mile walk around our subdivision. The days I cannot go, I really miss it :) I also love making homemade bread for us, I think it’s a lot healthier than the store bought ones, or at least I try to convince myself that it is :)

Valentina September 8, 2010 at 5:33 pm

Yoga always makes me feel calm and centered.

stephanie September 8, 2010 at 5:50 pm

Walking on the treadmill & catching up on my TV shows!

Karen September 8, 2010 at 5:50 pm

I’m another walker. I walk a lot everyday, but I really love taking 4-5 mile walks on the weekends, usually up in the hills.

irene September 8, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Walking is the most beneficial for me with such bad joints!

Kerstin September 8, 2010 at 5:58 pm

I love Greek yogurt but haven’t tried this brand yet! Your chicken looks so easy and yummy :) I’ve gotten into running this year and went from being able to run 10 minutes to doing a triathlon and several 5Ks! I’m actually training for a half marathon right now, but I’m not telling anyone until I know I can run 10 miles :)

Kelly September 8, 2010 at 5:59 pm

I love walking outside when the weather is nice! Sadly, the fall days are starting to appear which means winter isn’t too far behind.

Rachel September 8, 2010 at 6:01 pm

I like to bike as much as possible instad of driving my car- to class, to the grocery store, to the gym, etc.

Karen September 8, 2010 at 6:04 pm

I wake up every morning and I am in the pool by 5:30 AM. I have been swimming daily for the past 10+ years. This is my “me” time away from the kids, the house, the husband and all of the responsibilities that go with those things. It is my quiet time to think, plan, and relax.

cookienurse September 8, 2010 at 6:05 pm

I love walking because it is easy on the joints and I get a chance to be outdoors. It gives me an opportunity to engage in mindless thinking and decompress from stress. Unlike running, I don’t think about ‘when will this be over?’

Allison September 8, 2010 at 6:07 pm

Looking forward to walking my 3 dogs now that the weather is cooler- healthy for all of us!

Cheri September 8, 2010 at 6:10 pm

The highlight of my day is when I am able to go on a nice, long run in the fresh outdoors. My favorite time of day would definitely be in the morning when the grass is still dewy and very few people are around.

Sherry September 8, 2010 at 6:18 pm

I love playing volleyball at my high school! It’s fun and energetic!

jen September 8, 2010 at 6:19 pm

Another hiker here. And what a beautiful time of year for it!

Jenny September 8, 2010 at 6:22 pm

I park very far away from any store i go in. I get exercise and I get to enjoy the outdoors.

Krystle September 8, 2010 at 6:27 pm

I enjoy “racing” my 4 year old outside. It gives him a sense of accomplishment when he “beats” mommy. And it helps us both get some exercise in.

Nive September 8, 2010 at 6:35 pm
Beth September 8, 2010 at 6:43 pm

I’m a runner, but walking my dogs is the best part of my day!

Melissa B September 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

I am not a fan of exercise. However, I always take a spot at the back of a parking lot and try to take the stairs as much as possible.

Sally September 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

I LOVE my mat pilates class. I get to stretch and move in ways I didn’t think I could. The instructor plays great music as well so I leave relaxed and rejuvenated!

Gwen September 8, 2010 at 6:58 pm

walking and yard work.
