The week after next will be the start of Lent which is a time when various religious groups begin a time of fast. I say this because it’s at this time that I really try to challenge myself to eat healthier and drink less or no caffeinated beverages. I know this may sound strange to choose to eat healthier during this time than say New Years day. I like that I have a certain set amount of days (40) and it’s already marked on the calendar.
Now your wondering what in the world this has to do with yogurt? Nothing really but it couldn’t have come at a better time when I’m preparing to begin my 40 day challenge of eating and “drinking” healthier. The folks at YoPlus have some great info on how this yogurt helps to maintain good digestive health as well as whole body health.
Yo-Plus is one of the newer lines of yogurt from Yo Plait that aides in digestion with added nutrients like fiber, vitamin A and vitamin D. They also have a new great flavor Blue Berry Acai.
The boys and I tried YoPlus this week and we all really liked it. I’m usually not a big blue berry fan when it comes to my yogurt but this was good and creamy. The boys really liked it a lot. I could tell there was something different about the yogurt as though there was something extra added to it. I couldn’t quite put my taste buds on what the something was, but knew it wasn’t my typical YoPlait yogurt. This doesn’t mean that it was a bad thing in anyway at all. I don’t think the boys even noticed.
Overall: I’m all for the added benefits of extra fiber and vitamins in my yogurt. The flavor is great and the texture is creamy and just right for yogurt.
