Yesterday, I received an amazing surprise! After raving about the new bite flavors, Chobani was kind enough to thank me by send me some Greek yogurt! I immediately dove into the Mango, which is why it is not pictured (my favorite flavor). I usually use the plain and sweeten it with stevia because it’s so versatile with recipes, but the flavored kinds are great for on the go purposes.
This morning, I ran 7.5 miles and couldn’t wait for my post run breakfast. Towards the end, I started dreaming of fruit and granola with the Chobani. I received a bag of Go Raw Granola at Expo East and have been waiting to open it until I got some yogurt to go with it. I sliced up a cup of strawberries and combined a serving of plain Chobani with Vanilla NuNaturals Stevia and 1/2 a serving of the GoRaw Granola.
Nutrition Info: 230 calories (6g fat, 35g carbs, 8g fiber, 19g protein).
The Go Raw was amazing. The ingredients are listed on the front and include sprouted organic buckwheat groats, organic dates, sprouted organic flax seeds and organic raisins. Hand made in a raw kitchen, the granola is also gluten, wheat and nut free, dried under 105F. It’s expensive so perhaps I’ll try to make my own version.
Besides my protein pancake, my other go to breakfast is an Ezekial English Muffin with The Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations cream cheese spread. It’s a quick solution when you are short on time, great for during the work week or busy weekend. If I’m cravings something sweet I like to pair the cinnamon raisin muffins with the TLC cinnamon cream 1/3 less fat. If I want a salty alternative I use the regular 16:9 whole wheat variety with the TLC garden vegetable 1/3 less fat spread. My secret flavor blast is to add avocado and sprouts as well, if I have them on hand.
What is your favorite post run weekend meal?
that’s alot of yogurt!!!
Chobani FINALLY made it to Adelaide (Australia) and I had my first tub yesterday. Not bad at all 🙂
Is this your fridge? Who nice. I couldn’t eat that much yoghurt on a weekly basis. I believe the last time I had it was in March. I only consumed that because I got a whole batch for free.
Where did you get your watch from? I’m looking for something that will count miles and calories. Does it show heart rate too? Thanks
I find plain greek yogurt mixed with stevia to have a really unpleasant aftertaste. I can’t even get it down. My solution: I add one teaspoon of agave nectar (20 calories) to a 6 oz container of plain greek yogurt, mix it in, and it tastes amazing! No funny aftertaste and just the right sweetness. You should try it!
I also think plain greek yogurt tastes great with a cup of defrosted mixed berries (I buy mine at Costc0) because of all the juice that comes from defrosting the fruit.
what watch is that?! i’ve been looking for a new one!

Mmm sounds good. Do you have the sugar content for the yogurt? I get 2% Fage, but I’d be curious to know how Chobani compares. I need to look that up…sugar is the first thing I look at on a nutrition label!
