Froyo Bites

Having trouble feeding your kids healthy snacks? Try giving them a colorful snack in a cool shape. Froyo bites are a quick and healthy snack to give your kids. A little bit of yogurt and a little bit of fruit in a fun shape is a good way to get your kids to eat healthy.
Yogurt comes from milk, so yogurt eaters will get a dose of animal protein (about 9 grams per 6-ounce serving), plus several other nutrients found in dairy foods, like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium. Yogurt also has a good number of probiotics. Probiotics …

Slap Happy

Last week while I was chatting on the phone with my cousin who lives in Salem, MA, she mentioned her newest kitchen gadget that she just can’t get enough of.

A visit to Boston’s boYo!

Last night, I crashed a blogger’s get together at boYo natural frozen yogurt shop in Boston where a group of foodies got together to meet, talk and try boYo frozen yogurt. What a fun evening it was!

Greeted by Lori Peljovich who designed and opened boYo two years ago …


Acquiring a Taste for Yogurt

The other day I read an article on the rise in demand for Greek yogurt, one of the fastest-growing grocery items of 2010.  I was already aware of this fact because every time I opened the communal refrigerator at work, I would see a collection of All-Natural, Non-Fat Chobani and Total 2% Fage (pronounced fa-yeh) Greek yogurts.  However, none of the 6-ounce containers belonged to me.  In the past, I have tried the plain, pomegranate, and strawberry-banana flavors of Chobani, but have not acquired a taste for any of them.  Greek yogurt is too tart for my liking and I …
