Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a random post I meant to put up earlier this week. I will be back tomorrow with a recap of the holiday!


It seems like I have been eating a lot of Oikos lately but not doing anything creative with it. I have just been enjoying it as a dip for my apples at my 3:00 pm snack.

This week I decided to add it to a smoothie. I have not been eating many smoothies lately because I am usually freezing and smoothies are not appealing when you are at all cold. Monday morning though, dressed in my long, down, sleeping bag like North Face coat, I decided to have one!

My smoothie included the following key ingredients:


Plus some frozen mango from Trader Joe’s and frozen blueberries from picking this summer. It was delicious and super smooth! Love the Oikos addition!

Also, Stonyfield just sent an email with this exciting news!

We are now rewarding our consumers for buying our yogurt in quarts with a free reusable yogurt cup!

Yogurt lovers just have to buy four Stonyfield yogurt quarts through December, and mail in the foil lids (describing this offer), and they’ll receive the reusable, eight-ounce yogurt cup made by Preserve®. Made from 100% recycled plastic, the cup is perfect for yogurt-lovers on the go, the ideal size for breakfast or a snack, with room to stir in fruit or granola. It’s dishwasher safe, BPA-free with a screw-on lid – and it’s made in the US.

Consumers will also get $4.50 worth of Stonyfield and Preserve coupons along with the cup.
