I’m sure most of you have heard about the health benefits of Greek yogurt. US News and World Report suggested that Greek yogurt, “which is strained extensively to remove much of the liquid whey, lactose, and sugar [has] an undeniable edge [over regular yogurt]. In roughly the same amount of calories, it can pack up to double the protein, while cutting sugar content by half.” As a result, many dieticians suggest eating low-fat or nonfat Greek yogurt as a part of a healthy diet.
But, for those of you who have picky eaters in your family (*cough* my husband *cough*), it might not be very easy to persuade them to toss their tasty, sugary yogurt for a healthy-tasting one. To help your family be more excited about adding Greek yogurt into their diet, Honey Bunches of Oats just released a new product, Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch.
We had the chance to be among the first to try it, and it was a huge hit at our house! When I first offered my husband a bowl of it, he politely refused, because he’s not a fan of Greek yogurt. But, after some gentle persuasion (“EAT it, as a blogger’s husband, it is your duty!”), he took a few bites, and said, “Not bad!” (guy terminology for, “That’s amazing – I could eat a bowl of this every morning.”) Which he did, until the box was gone! And, the general consensus among everyone who helped us sample it was that Honey Bunches of Oats Greek tasted like a high-end granola, not overly sweet, but satisfyingly delicious.
The new Honey Bunches of Oats Greek is made with Greek yogurt, crispy whole grain flakes and a touch of honey. With 33 grams of whole grains, one bowl provides over two-thirds of your day’s whole grains. Nutritionists recommend eating three or more servings of whole grain foods per day (about 16g whole grain per serving or at least 48g per day).
Here is the nutritional information of Honey Bunches of Oats Greek:
o 33g of Whole Grain per serving – over 2/3 your day’s whole grain
o Serving Size: 1 Cup
o 230 Calories
