I have partnered with Dannon to help promote the Activia 30 Day Challenge. I have been compensated for my time commitment to take the challenge and report my results to you by my thoughts and opinions are my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
Well here we are halfway through September, which means a few things. We are well into the school year, we are getting closer to the crazy holiday season and Christmas every day, and we are now halfway though our Activia challenge! If you remember from my post at the beginning of the month (check it out here) I partnered with Dannon to take the Activia 30 day challenge. I was excited for the opportunity because of the past experiences I shared that really helped our family!
To recap the Activia 30 Day Challenge allows you to enjoy Activia twice a day for four weeks and Activia may help the frequency of minor digestive issues* such as bloating, gas, rumbling, and discomfort. It works or it’s free! It might seem that eating yogurt twice a day could get boring, but Activia has a really wide variety of types and flavors so it really keeps it fun. Even the kids demand to eat yogurt multiple times a day!
The traditional Activia yogurt is available in 8 flavors:
- Strawberry Banana
- Mixed Berry
They also have two other yogurt varieties available in their own assortment of flavors, Activia Greek which has Vanilla in addition to 7 fun fruit on the bottom flavors and Activia Light which packs all the digestive benefits of Activia in a package with only 8o calories and no fat!
You can see with all the varieties it really keeps it new and exciting each day. We have developed some favorite times and ways to eat our yogurt too! My kids love it for breakfast! I can’t resist adding in some fresh fruit at breakfast to help it have even more flavor, texture and nutrients. We do everything from bananas and strawberries to more exciting fruits like kiwi and fresh peaches. My favorite though is layering the fruit between two flavors of the yogurt!
My husband really loves to eat yogurt as his post work out snack. Being so pregnant I am not getting many workouts in these days but he loves the cool yogurt right out of the fridge. His favorite way to eat it is with a granola bar. The combination of the protein in the yogurt and the staying power of the oats make it a really great choice to rejuvenate get through the rest of the day.
Back to me and being pregnant, I am getting to the point where I don’t have room for big meals so healthy snacks are a must to get me through the day (and night!) I think eating a yogurt with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips on top makes it seem like I am indulging in a guilty pleasure when I eat these in the evening. I also like to top them with graham cracker crumbs and mix in bananas, or if I am feeling really crazy add in a swirl of peanut butter!
Whether it is served at a meal like breakfast, as a mid-day or after work out snack, or in my case as a delicious indulgence, it has been really easy to incorporate Activia yogurt into our every day routine and we are really enjoying the Activia 30 Day Challenge and the results we are seeing. This is just one part of a healthy lifestyle though. Activia Brand Ambassador, Laila Ali, has shared even more tips for living a healthy lifestyle:
- Start the Day off Right: Whenever I have a busy day scheduled, I always make sure I have an Activia Yogurt in my fridge. These delicious, creamy low-fat yogurts are rich in flavor and help me easily stay on track with the Activia Challenge!
- Work Out: Fit it in when you can. You don’t have to do a two-hour workout at the gym – I rarely have time for that anymore. I like to take the kids out for abike ride, or go for a run while they ride their scooters along with me. Doing little workouts throughout the day will help to improve your mood all day long.
- Pack In The Protein: After I complete a workout I always grab Activia Greek! It is a great post work out treat. Plus, with seven delicious flavors to choose from Iget to switch it up regularly.
- Laugh: I surround myself with people that make me feel happy and make me laugh. Staying positive and enjoying my surroundings always keeps me in a good mood.
- Make Wise Food Choices: You are what you eat! I spend one day a week cutting up fruits & veggies and making healthy dishes that my family can eat throughout the week.
