We have partnered with Dannon to help promote the Dannon Oikos Greek Grab a Spoon campaign. We’ve been compensated for our time commitment to the program, which includes writing about the promotion and product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. For our sponsored post policy, click here.

Tips from a Nutritionist
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! Craving sweets? 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 (check out some of our favorites) 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 yogurt. Oikos Greek Nonfat yogurt has 12 to 14 grams of protein (24 percent DV) while regular low-fat yogurt has 5 grams of protein (10 percent DV) per 5.3 oz.
