Organic Probiotic Yogurt Sweetened with Stevia- Stonyfield Farms

by jem614

I’ve cut out the Activia in my life because of my recent Gestational Diabetes diagnosis and have been paying the price for it- to be blunt.  Pregnancy makes things move a little slower so that more nutrients can go to your baby (if you know what I mean).

Desperate for an alternative I found this Stonyfield Farm, Organic, stevia-sweetened, probiotic yogurt in the Publix dairy isle.  The taste is refreshing and clean and doesn’t have a terrible aftertaste.  It’s not overly sweetened either!

I’m still working on the “For The Glow” plan for one or two meals a day but this fits in for a good afternoon snack at only 70 calories.  The only negative would be that it’s real cows milk- would love to find some sort of alternative that isn’t as mucus-inducing but maybe that’s where the probiotics come in?

Check it out if you’re looking for something with no sugar- great for diabetics or even those that are just looking to cut the sugar.

Ashley’s Back from Israel: Vegetarian Cuisine at Newark Airport

by ashley

I’m finally back from my whirlwind trip around Israel! I’m so excited to start sharing some of my experiences with you, as I know I’ve talked the ear off of most of my friends and family already. I took a total of around 4,000 pictures, filling two 8 GB SD cards, so it’s taking me a while to get everything organized. I’ll start with my first experience, which was at the Newark airport in New Jersey.

Anticipation mounting of my Israel trip, along with the awe inspiring view of the One World Trade Center to my right, it wasn’t easy trying to center my thoughts on food. A stocked deli with beautiful sandwiches and desserts caught my eye, and I ventured over to take a closer look. For Airport cuisine, it looked really fresh, so I took a chance and went for La Tapenade’s  Portobello Griller sandwich. Grilled to order for about $10, it isn’t cheap (but is anything cheap in an airport?), yet makes for a great vegetarian meal option on the go. If I had more time, I absolutely would have checked out the wine bar Vino Volo located just down the corridor.

Here are some photos of my first day in Israel to tide you over until my next post =)
