We all want to look and feel our best, especially during these months. However, exercising, and maintaining a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle can be daunting, but with the right tools it can be as easy as picking up a spoon! This spring, registered dietician Keri Glassman and Dannon Oikos are encouraging you to ‘Grab a Spoon ‘til June’ with rich and creamy 0% fat Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt to help you stay on track towards your goals while at the same time adding spice to your normal routine! Summer is my favorite time of year! We get to spend more time outside as a family, and it is easier to stay active while having fun! Staying active andeating healthy is important to my family. Maintaining a balanced diet isn’t always easy, but important for me to teach my son. I love these tips to remind me that eating right isn’t a chore-it’s a lifestyle!

Dannon Oikos has started the “Grab a Spoon ‘til June” campaign, which offers exclusive tips from Keri Glassman on how to help achieve a balanced diet; your weight management goals, exercise ideas, motivational messages to keep one on track, nutritious recipes and more!

Here are some of  tips from Keri to help you get started – be sure to visit OikosYogurt.com for more tips, messages, advice, recipes and more – and when it’s snack time, don’t forget to Grab a Spoon!

Every Meal Is A “Monday Morning”. Focus on eating better, one meal at a time. Otherwise it can be easy to get discouraged – forget the worry! Your only mission: Make the next meal you eat nutritious, balanced and satisfying.

 Don’t Eat Around A Craving. Honor your craving with a conscious indulgence – take a few deep breaths and find a healthy alternative! Try satisfying your sweet tooth with Dannon Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt, it is nutritious but still has an incredible taste.

 No-Excuses Exercise. Sometimes the biggest barrier to working out is just getting there so a good option can be to make it as easy as possible—throw in a workout DVD or even going for a walk takes away excuses and gets you moving!

Satisfying Proteins. A moderate-protein balanced diet with a reasonable amount of fiber, carbohydrates and the appropriate amount of healthy fats is the best way to maintain a healthy weight. Dairy is a great source of protein, try a creamy Greek nonfat yogurt like Dannon Oikos®–it has twice the protein of regular lowfat yogurt2.

 

I love Keri’s tip of no-excuses exercise! With three kids home everyday now that school is out, I know I tend to make excuses for myself. But no more! We will make it a point to take walks together daily! If the kids are expecting it, then it will be even harder to make excuses.
If you’ve never tried Greek Yogurt you’re really missing out! I love how much more creamy it is than regular yogurt! It’s non-fat and high protein, so using it as a substitute in a lot of summer recipes helps my family to enjoy taste without the extra fat! I love to use it when I make salad dressings for the creamy taste! Ranch sure tastes a lot better when you know it’s a healthier version! We also like to mix it with fresh berries and freeze it in popsicle molds for a healthy cool treat on a hot day.
