I had the opportunity to work with Activia on their new Selects product line. I love that they have come out with a Greek yogurt. Being of Greek nationality, most of our dinners are Greek, and yogurt is a very prominent ingredient in many of them. If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know that I make my delicious tzatsiki at least twice a week (in large batches so it lasts a few days) and Greek yogurt is the main character in this recipe.
While Activia Selects can’t really be used in Greek cooking because it does not come in a plain flavor, it can be thoroughly enjoyed on its own or with some granola. I have recently gotten into a granola and yogurt kick in the morning and I have started using Activia since I started working on this campaign. I tried all the varieties but my favorite is the vanilla, while my hubby’s is the blueberry.
I love yogurt, not only for its versatile uses, but also for it’s great health benefits. The probiotics found in most yogurts are said to aid in digestion while also improving your immune system. I am a believer in probiotics because when I was younger, I was diagnosed with IBS. I was pretty much told that there was nothing I can do and to just deal with it. A close family friend was suffering as well and she tuned me into the world of probiotics. Within a few months I began to notice a HUGE difference, and at this point I am happy to share that I am symptom free!
Now, I’m not saying that eating Activia alone will treat any illnesses – but Activia DOES contain this healthy bacteria. Along with that, Activia also contains calcium and tastes great! It is a yummy, healthy snack, on the go or home! For even more information about Activia Selects, check out their site.
