Favorite Yogurt Recipes + Fueling My Daily Marathon

Life with a toddler gets pretty hectic. It can be tricky to make sure that we’re all eating healthily while we’re on the go. It feels like a marathon trying to make it through the day sometimes, but it’s a fun kind of exhaustion :)

One of my favorite breakfasts/snacks is a bowl of plain Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey, granola, and fresh fruit on top. My son loves it too, and asks for it almost daily. I love that it’s healthy, packed with protein, and most of all easy! If I’m running short on time, he loves the Stonyfield YoToddler Pouches. They’re great on the go! I also love grabbing a cup of Stonyfield Greek if I need a little boost before a workout.

Yogurt is such a versatile ingredient in the kitchen – I always have a few different types on hand. Here are a few of our favorite ways to use yogurt:

Tomorrow morning marks the 118th Boston Marathon. I admire all of the people who put themselves out there, training for these types of events. It takes a ton of dedication. I took up running a few months ago, but am nowhere near being able to run an actual marathon. But I’ll be cheering them on from the sidelines here in New York!

This year, Stonyfield is the official yogurt sponsor of the Boston Marathon. They’re sending 10 runners who just missed the cut off due to this year’s large amount of sign ups. They’ll be handing out hundreds of thousands of cups of organic yogurt on race day – to runners, their families, volunteers, etc.

Stonyfield co-founder Gary Hirsherg says,

Like the members of Team Stonyfield, we felt compelled to participate in this year’s race to show our deep love and support for the city of Boston and New England community. We’re so proud of our inspiring team and are excited to be working with the Boston Athletic Association to make this year’s race a celebration of Boston’s tremendous spirit and resiliency.

They’re also giving away a bunch of healthy living themed prizes including a year long gym membership on the day of the marathon – you can enter by posting on Twitter or Instagram using #StonyfieldSuperFan.

    I use yogurt to fuel my marathon as well!! It’s such a crazy delicious versatile ingredient. And I bet you’re almost as exhausted running around after Ian all day as some people are running marathons! I’m sure he’s all over the place!
