2 Percent

I wasn’t a big milk-drinker growing up. I chose to get my calcium from yogurt, cheese and ice cream. Though I still am not the biggest fan of milk (except in smoothies), I know that many people who drink it have a very strong preference for their favorite type, whether it be skim, 2 percent, whole milk, etc.

Well, today I am declaring my preference for 2 percent… yogurt.

2 Percent Chobani

I love the 0 percent Chobani, but it wasn’t until I tried a sample of the 2 percent variety of the yogurt a little more than a month ago, that I realized there was something even creamier out there.

Unfortunately my grocery store has not offered the 2 percent Chobani until NOW! I was so excited when I saw it in the refrigerated section over the weekend and I nabbed several containers.

This morning I used one of the cups as the base for an apple pecan yogurt bowl.

My mix-ins included honey, a packet of Brothers-All-Natural apple crisps and Fresh Gourmet honey roasted pecan pieces.

Breakfast is Served

The honey roasted pecans stole the show!

Time to Eat!

This breakfast was the perfect cool treat after my morning run with Sadie.

I haven’t gone on a morning run since January 2nd and it felt great to pound out five miles with my favorite running buddy.  (To see my post on running with a dog, click here.)

Stats

Truth be told, I wanted to sleep in until 7 a.m., so in order to have time to workout and get Sadie some exercise, I had to combine the two. It worked perfectly and Sadie and I enjoyed trucking along for slightly less than 50 minutes.

Off to work, my friends!

    I agree that 2% Greek yogurt is much better. It’s not thicker or anything, but definitely has a richer taste. It’s amazing what a little bit of fat can do for the flavor. Plus, I have noticed that I stay fuller longer with it than I do with the 0% fat version.

    I have NEVER been able to drink milk, of any kind. I find it incredibly disgusting. But I have to agree the 2% Chobani is a lot creamier than the 0%. I’ll take the minimal extra fat and calories for that taste!
