LONDONDERRY, N.H., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This new year, one easy resolution we can all keep is better snacking. To help with that, Stonyfield, the leading brand of organic yogurt available nationally, today announces that its line of organic Greek yogurt now features an even creamier texture and perfected flavors. Two delicious new flavors, Black Cherry and Cafe Latte, are also available, providing a wide variety of satisfying and nutritious snacks that taste great. Stonyfield Greek is made with only the best ingredients and without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, GMOs, artificial hormones and antibiotics offering consumers a rich, creamy yogurt with a clean label.
"Greek yogurt makes an excellent snack with its high protein content and moderate calorie count, and Stonyfield Greek offers the healthiest option available by using only the best, organic ingredients and never any GMOs," said Heather Bauer, RD, founder of Bestowed and nutrition author. "Mindful snacking between meals is ideal to keep energy levels high and maintain satiety. That's why I always stock my fridge with Stonyfield Greek yogurt – it's perfect plain or mixed with nutritious toppings like organic berries, nuts or a drizzle of honey."
For those looking to shape up their snack time in the New Year, Heather Bauer offers the following tips to satisfy cravings healthfully:
- Choose Organic: Shopping organic is a great step toward ensuring that you and your family eat the healthiest foods possible. Look for snacks with the USDA organic seal to ensure your family is getting the safest foods possible throughout the day.
- Snack Regularly: Contrary to popular belief, regular snacking can actually help you lose or maintain a healthy weight by controlling cravings throughout the day. Keep snacks low in calories but full of protein to feel your best.
- Clean Labels: Beyond fat and calories, look for snacks with clean ingredient labels. The fewer ingredients used in a product, the lower the chance you're eating artificial additives. Aim to choose packaged snacks with ten ingredients or less. Plain Stonyfield Greek yogurt has only one ingredient – organic non-fat milk!
- Plan Ahead: We all get snack cravings at different times of day depending on everything from meal size to stress. Keep healthy snacks readily available at home or in the office for a nutritious snack at any time. Stock your fridge with a few of your favorite Stonyfield Greek flavors along with fresh fruit and almonds to fight cravings.
Heather has also created several tips for snacking your way to better health in the New Year and shared them on the Stonyfield blog. Included in her tips is a refreshing and delicious citrus smoothie recipe, a perfect snack or breakfast to help kick start healthy habits throughout the day.
