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 enjoy zumba!

Kristen September 8, 2010 at 7:18 pm

I signed up for a sprint triathlon which forced me to train since I couldn’t even run a mile:) Since the race, I’ve kept up with going to the gym- which is a big deal for me. So, I guess, making a non-negotiable goal helped me adapt a healthy lifestyle.

Lauren September 8, 2010 at 7:31 pm

I love being outside, especially in the beautiful fall weather, I grab my dog, leash him up and we go for a jog or a nice long walk to just enjoy the weather!

Stephanie September 8, 2010 at 7:36 pm

Love Greek Yogurt. I usually make my own and do plain unsweetened with a bit of jam and some granola.

Elle September 8, 2010 at 7:41 pm

I love running in the fall, when the leaves have turned and you’re just cool enough to enjoy yourself…but daily I love walking my dogs. :)

Aly September 8, 2010 at 7:42 pm

I love to cook so we try to alter recipes to make them as healthy (and delicious!) as possible.

Laura September 8, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Every day after work, I get off the shuttle about a mile before my apartment (I work at a University with a great transprotation system). I walk the rest of the way, and use the time to talk on the phone and catch up with my mom. It’s a great way to end my day!

Hilary Purcell September 8, 2010 at 8:09 pm

I love walking on the beach in Galveston with my Springer Spaniel, Mollie! The sweet sea air always seems to heal me from head to toe. My favorite part is to watch the flock of pelicans flying so gently and peacefully along the beach. After my walk, I love to eat greek yogurt with homemade granola and blueberries!
The perfect morning!

Kris September 8, 2010 at 8:15 pm

Every day, rain or shine, for my toddler’s nap time, I put him in the stroller and go for a 5-mile run, pushing him along. It is just about the only way to get him to nap, so if I am being a good mother and making sure he gets his much needed nap, I am also being good to myself and getting my much needed workout! We live in the mountains, so any time I spend outside is great for the soul!

Julie September 8, 2010 at 8:20 pm

Make me switch from Fage!

EmilyM September 8, 2010 at 9:21 pm

I look forward to dance! I take dance classes at least 2 times a week, and even if I just happen to NOT look forward to class one day, afterward I always feel better!
Thanks!

Colleen September 8, 2010 at 9:28 pm

Walking my kids in the stroller on a nice cool day. A great workout and good to be outside getting my exercise in too.

sunny September 8, 2010 at 9:29 pm

walking (or strolling?) after dinner, preferably at dusk. running is nice too, preferably at dawn!

Juli September 8, 2010 at 9:29 pm

Sunday dinner at my Mom’s – always a big green salad and lots of vegetables. It’s my detox from a weeks worth of carryout and food on the run.

Emily September 8, 2010 at 9:33 pm

My favorite active thing over the hot hot summer has been Wii Fit. I’m ready to get outside again with the cooler fall weather!

Stacey September 8, 2010 at 9:35 pm

I love taking my kids to the farmers’ market to pick out fresh fruit and veggies! We all eat better after a fun trip.

Claire September 8, 2010 at 9:38 pm

Hmm, I have several. I love making a nice big salad with an extra punch added by some olives. Gives nice flavor and color. I also look forward to my time at the gym…it’s good for my health mentally and physically. My job can be pretty stressful and this is a good way to release stress (and catch up on some reading!).

Betty @ scrambled hen fruit September 8, 2010 at 9:39 pm

I’m trying to walk every day!

Lauren September 8, 2010 at 9:39 pm

I like that I get to walk 10 minutes each way to the train as a part of my daily commute. Not only am I getting a little forced exercise but it gives me a few moments to daydream.

Janna September 8, 2010 at 9:45 pm

Surprisingly, I like to run! It’s a great workout, and you don’t need anything other than a good pair of shoes to do it.

Jennifer September 8, 2010 at 9:46 pm

I mostly run because it’s the most time efficient way to get a workout in and allow me more time for everything else, but my favorite activity is long hikes on the weekend.

Jess September 8, 2010 at 9:51 pm

I am looking forward to my morning run. I had Greek yogurt for dinner (late night…), but sadly it was not Voskos.

jenni September 8, 2010 at 10:21 pm

I usually like to run, but I’m pregnant, so right now it’s walking!

Angela September 8, 2010 at 10:35 pm

I loooove strength training. I could lift weights all day long!

Adare September 8, 2010 at 10:38 pm

I love playing tennis if the weather is nice and I love walking the dogs every day of the year!

Meryl September 8, 2010 at 10:41 pm

Walking in the park.

Michelle September 8, 2010 at 11:12 pm

I look forward to yoga because I feel so great afterwards.

Lynne September 8, 2010 at 11:22 pm

I enjoy running because it gives me time to think and hang with friends. Plus, it burns off all the cookies I eat!

Felice September 8, 2010 at 11:50 pm

I recently got a bike and I had forgotten how much fun it is to be outside in the fresh air with the breeze blowing in your face. I look forward to discovering new areas and improving my skills.

Glanathema September 8, 2010 at 11:54 pm

When I want to feel good and healthy, I pop in my Jazzercise video cassette from the 80s and move my boogie body.

Kris P September 9, 2010 at 12:20 am

I enjoy my boot camp class at the gym – I enjoy working out with other people.

Anonymous September 9, 2010 at 2:54 am

I like to go walking too, but I prefer to work in the yard even more.

Cera September 9, 2010 at 2:55 am

Josie September 9, 2010 at 3:02 am

Yogurt. YUM! I like walking up and down and up and down and up and down the stairs in the morning because I keep forgetting:

My daughter’s socks.
Her baby doll.
My earrings.
My work computer.
Her favorite book (The Grandma Book).
To brush both our teeth.

Isn’t that a nice way to get fit?

Bethannw September 9, 2010 at 3:41 am

Yoga. I love how in tune with my body I feel, plus I do it with my brother & SIL and we have tea and conversation after, which is even more fun.

Janice September 9, 2010 at 3:47 am

I love walking at twilight. Even after years of sports injuries I’m able to still enjoy walking to stay active. =)

Kristen September 9, 2010 at 6:01 am

Charging up my ipod, grabbing my running shoes, and going for a run.

jancd September 9, 2010 at 7:17 am

Walking on a track at church listening to Christian music and seeing other friends from church walking.

Emily September 9, 2010 at 7:17 am

I really enjoy taking the dogs for a walk or jog because it both good for me and for them. And, I’m especially looking forward to it now that fall is coming. There is NOTHING better than a walk on a nice cool fall evening!

Niki September 9, 2010 at 8:07 am

Cardio kickboxing! It’s my most favorite thing to do for a workout!

Shelly September 9, 2010 at 8:19 am

This 52 year old still plays soccer in a womens league! My team has been together for over 28 years now. Although our soccer isn’t quite what it use to be, we still get moving. Then after the game we continue our “exercise” in the bar, doing right and left handed bicep curls with my beer mug!

Jessica September 9, 2010 at 8:31 am

Jogging or walking along the river in our area. It is so refreshing and helps my daily outlook tremendously.

I would love to try the new yogurt flavors so I hope I win!!

Melissa September 9, 2010 at 8:37 am

I walk with my friend several mornings a week! It’s a fun way to socialize AND get my workout in…and it’s easier to get up and go when I have talking to her to look forward to…whereas when I’m going walking or jogging on my own sometimes I have trouble getting out the door!

Angie September 9, 2010 at 9:04 am

My daughter and I go for a long walk every evening after dinner. My boys are doing homework and my husband is watching the national news. Kate and I catch up on our day and talk…she is my favorite person to walk with

Nora September 9, 2010 at 9:06 am

I love going for a jog at the park – it’s so enjoyable!

diane jordan September 9, 2010 at 9:21 am

Tennis is my favorite- two days a week – great friends and great exercise!!!

Tessa September 9, 2010 at 9:29 am

Love, love, love spinning class when I can find a class that matches up with my schedule!

Sue September 9, 2010 at 9:29 am

Loading both kids in the jogging stroller and heading down to the Lake Michigan bike path — a great way to exercise and enjoy early mornings.

Karen September 9, 2010 at 9:43 am

Hiking up big mountains. This summer, I’ve climbed up three mountains, all higher than 10 000ft. It takes hours, there is some pain, but the views are worth it. Most importantly, you can eat whatever you want afterwards without guilt because you’ve burned thousands of calories! (literally!)
