Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls + Meal Planning

Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pearls  happyfitmama.com

I seriously can not remember what it’s like to be warm. Everyday I’m freezing. I’m surrounding by feet upon feet of snow and temperatures that barely get out of the single digits.

But you know what I was craving yesterday for my whole entire long run (while I was freezing)?

Frozen yogurt.

Weird, huh? You’d think I’d be craving belly warming soup or comfort food like a fresh out of the oven bread.

Nope. Frozen yogurt.

Maybe it was because I had just received a delivery of Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls? You guys, these things are good. Like hide in the back of the freezer so no one else finds them good.

So what is a Frozen Yogurt Pearl? It’s scoops of frozen yogurt enveloped in edible skins using the innovative WikiPearl™ technology. The “pearl” is like the skin of a grape, that holds the delicious nonfat frozen yogurt. They don’t melt and don’t require a bowl or a spoon. Easy to share and are perfectly popable. Is that a word? If not, it should be.

There are four flavors (skin flavor is listed first) – Coconut Chocolate, Peach Vanilla, Strawberry Chocolate and Strawberry Vanilla. All are absolutely delicious. I loved the Peach Vanilla the best which surprised me since I’m all about the chocolate. Miss A loved the Coconut Chocolate. Mr. L loved Strawberry Vanilla. And Ron liked the Strawberry Chocolate best. There’s a flavor for everyone!

You can find Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls at Whole Foods across New England. You can find the nearest one to you HERE. Before you head to the store, print out a coupon – 2 for $6! Hopefully they will be expanding to other grocery stores in the future because this stuff is good. Really good.

As a Stonyfield Yo-Getter, I was sent this product to review and share on my blog. I was not compensated for this post. All opinions, as always, are my own.

We are getting yet again, another blizzard/Nor’easter. I’m trying really, really hard not to complain (too much), but this is really getting old. A whole winter’s worth of snow in 3 weeks? It’s just not right! Sigh. It has to end soon, right?

#BringingYogaBack Challenge + Meal Planning

Who’s ready for more yoga?

Last weekend I talked about #TakeTheLeap with prAna and FitApproach. BTW – I’m loving my practice even more with the help of the challenge. Well, prAna has upped the ante by launching a mini-challenge called #bringingyogaback!

Their 12-Day Yoga Instagram Invitation campaign runs from Sunday, Feb 8th – Feb 20th and can be incorporated into your #taketheleap challenge!

prAna Ambassador, Michael Fukumura, has designed a “Spring Awakening” sequence to continue to bring people together, build a positive community, and inspire others to find their mat. I’m all about awakening Spring right now. Maybe that will stop the relentless snowfall?

#bringingyogabackHere’s the details:

12 Day Yoga Invitation!

We’re #bringingyogaback in a big way this spring and want your help!  To celebrate, we’re hosting a 12-day Instagram yoga-inspire-a-thon.

The prize?

$1000 in prAna gear for one lucky winner AND a friend!

This is not about competition—you will not be docked points for not having the perfect downward dog, don’t worry. Instead, we want to inspire you, your friends, and your family to hit the mat more often and share your progress with the larger Insta family.

As further motivation, one lucky participant will receive $1,000 in new prAna gear from our Spring Collection AND the opportunity to gift another $1000 in gear to a person of their choice (because isn’t giving as fun as receiving?).

All ability levels are welcome, so don’t feel any pressure to replicate a pose exactly… just do your best and always listen to your body.

To enter:

1) Follow @prAna on Instagram

2) Post a pic of yourself doing the pose of the day – you don’t have to post every day to enter

3) Use #bringingyogaback #taketheleap and tag both @prAna and @fitapproach     

4) Get your friends & family in on the fun

That’s it! The posing starts Monday, February 9th!

Be sure to check out prAna and their new Spring Collection. It’s gorgeous! You can get 15% off your order from prAna with code psps15HFM.

Since it’s Sunday, it’s meal planning day. Here’s what I’ve got planned:

Sunday: Fish Tacos

Monday: Broccoli Chickpea Bowl 

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Quinoa, Chicken and Kale Soup

Wednesday: Ron’s Homemade Pizza

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Healthy Chickpea “Chicken” Salad Sandwiches or over greens

Saturday: Valentine’s Day Date Night In

What is your favorite yoga pose? For me, it’s Wild Thing. It really does make my heart sing.
