Great Breakfast Choices: Muller Yogurt

There are a lot of yogurts out there. The one you choose all depends on what flavors you like, what health benefits you are looking for and of course, which one just appeals to you. I was recently able to try out Muller Yogurt (complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes) and I have to say--I'm hooked!

I never really liked Greek yogurt, but I wanted to try it because it seemed to be a better option than regular yogurt. To me, the tangy taste was just too much. However, after trying Muller Greek Corners with Caramelized Almonds, I have finally found a Greek yogurt that I can enjoy. It was a slightly smoother taste and the almonds made that mix of tangy and sweet just right. I'm definitely going to add this yogurt to my morning routine (it's also good as a snack, too!).

Let's Get Going with the #GoVoxBox

The #GoVoxBox from Influenster is here! This is my first VoxBox from Influenster, so I was excited to try out all the goodies inside. This box has a health/wellness theme, so all of the products included should help me reach my spring and summer fitness goals. Here's the breakdown of the products:

Blue Diamond Blueberry Flavored Almonds
I'll be honest: I took one look at this package and was convinced I wouldn't like it. However, I just opened it an hour ago and every single almond has been eaten. It is surprisingly good. I like blueberries, I like almonds--so the combination was really great. I would definitely buy these again as a snack to take with me on busy days.

Muller Quaker Yogurt (Coupon)
I went and redeemed my coupon for a free Muller Quaker Yogurt product  the other day and tried it. I have to say, it was pretty good. I bought the Greek Corners variety that came with sugared almonds. Me and almonds -- seriously a match made in heaven. ;-)

Vitamin Shoppe Next Step Fit N Full Protein Shake (w/ Shaker Cup)
This is where my fitness goals can really be met. Although I try to maintain a healthy diet, I have a bad habit of snacking a lot because I eat when I'm bored. However, the Next Step protein shakes definitely keep me full. I had one for lunch a few days ago, and it was hours before the thought of food even crossed my mind. I mixed it up in the shaker cup provided, but either I didn't shake it long enough or it just didn't mix well with the water because I had a few chunks of powder while drinking it. But the flavors are tasty--they aren't chalky or bitter like I imagined it would be.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance
I haven't had a chance to use this product yet, but I have used the Sport line of tampons before. They work well and are great for the gym or any other type of exercise. However, the Fresh Balance part of it (says "lightly scented" on the box) doesn't seem so appealing.

ProFoot Traid Orthodic/ ProFoot Pedi Rock
Now this is the way to treat your feet! I slipped the orthodics into my trainers and went for a walk. By the time I got back home, my back and legs weren't as tired or sore as they usually are. I'm definitely glad about that, because that means I can ramp up my workout. After exercising I took a shower, then used the pedi rock to smooth out my heels. I really haven't used a product like this before, but it worked well. I like the fact that it is made from a soft material and you can use it wet or dry.

Aqua Spa Body Creme
This is what you want to have on hand after a hard day--whether you were exercising or just exhausted from work. I received the lavender and chamomile scent. It smells great and relaxes me when I put it on just before I go to bed. After a few days, I have noticed that my skin is a little bit softer.

Overall, this was an AWESOME box! I will definitely continue to use these products in my pursuit of health.
