White Mountain Foods 5 Day Challenge

I chose to use the White Mountain Foods Bulgarian Organic Yogurt for my 5 day challenge.

Day 1: Protein Smoothie
Today I started my week off with a Strawberry, Banana, Blackberry, Blueberry, and Banana Smoothie with a scoop of strawberry flavored protein. I added 1 cup of yogurt and it was delicious. I stayed full for the rest of the morning and was able to avoid unnecessary snacking.

Day 2: Blueberry Yogurt Parfait
I made a yogurt parfait today with 1 cup of yogurt, blueberries, and granola. I added a tablespoon of agave to the yogurt and layered the three ingredients in an empty pint jar, screwed on the cap, and took it with me to work. I loved how easy it was to grab as a morning snack, and the agave added a little extra sweetness.

Day 3: Strawberry Yogurt with Agave
For breakfast this morning I pureed strawberries and added them to a bowl of yogurt with a tablespoon of agave. The yogurt was so smooth and adding flavor gave it a nice twist. By the end of the day I can definitely say that my digestion was feeling more regular.

Day 4: Granola & Yogurt
I kept it simple today and had 1 cup of yogurt with some granola. It was fast and easy and I love the crunch the granola brings to the yogurt. I was feeling energized after breakfast this morning and was ready to start my day.

Day 5: Strawberry & Banana Smoothie
Smoothies are always great when you don’t have time to sit down and enjoy your breakfast. Since I was running late this morning, I blended strawberries, a banana, and 1 cup of yogurt and poured it in my reusable to go cup.  I drank my breakfast on the way to work and it was great.

After having White Mountain Foods Yogurt every day this week, I feel like it has helped my digestive system tremendously! I have had great energy in the mornings and overall I feel better throughout the day. I definitely recommend taking this challenge and finding out how it can make a change in your life.
