Before you hear about the giveaway, please drool over my dinner last night: Laughing Cow Spinach Alfredo. It was WONDERFUL! And um, so incredibly easy (but shhh, don’t tell!)!
Laughing Cow Spinach Alfredo
6 wedges laughing cow cheese
1 cup skim milk
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp reduced cal margarine
1 tsp garlic powder
5-6 handfuls of fresh baby spinach
Simmer cheeses, milk, Smart Balance Light on low until melted and heated throughout – about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Toss in handfuls of spinach and simmer until wilted – about 3-4 minutes. Serve over your favorite whole wheat pasta and with your favorite protein. Or, just keep it veg! Mmmm!
Today was also taste-test day at work. LOTS of people participated this week – 20, in fact! A huge thumbs up from the crowd, it was all gone by 11:05am – before most people’s lunch breaks, even!
* I am beginning to work on the recipes tab, so look for the Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe there shortly, and it is also in the Prevention Cookbook for those participating!
Shari from Chobani has graciously offered Chobani Giveaway prize packs to TWO lucky winners!! Winners will receive a Chobani case of assorted fruit flavors: strawberry, blueberry, and peach! YUMMM!
For the record: Between Oikos and Chobani, my vote goes for Chobani (complete coincidence that I’m doing a Chobani Giveaway, I swear!). In the past 24-hours I’ve re-sampled (hehe) Chobani AND Oikos, and I love how creamy and thick Chobani is. I love them both, but Chobani’s variety of flavors and thickness earns it my vote. I mean pomegranate Greek yogurt!? I think I died and went to heaven!
In order to enter the Chobani Giveaway, simply go to www.chobani.com to help you answer the below questions…one, two, or all three, for a total of three possible entries. For each question you answer, leave a separate comment below (you want all 3 submissions, don’t you? ;)).
One winner will be selected at random and one winner will be selected for providing the most insightful post…nutrition-related of course, to question #3.
1. Have you tried Chobani yogurt? If so, what flavor(s)?
2. Chobani is willing to donate 10% to one of 8 organizations/charities. Go here to vote for the organization or charity you would like to see receive the donation — which organization or charity did you vote for?
3. What makes low-fat Greek yogurt more healthful than regular low-fat yogurt?
This contest ends Wednesday, December 23rd at 8am, Central Time. Open to US residents only, sorry Canada and beyond!
P.S. Several of you have asked if I am associated with Prevention Magazine and the answer is no, though, I’d love to be! I only write and blog for my own enjoyment and receive no compensation. SOMEDAY, however, I would love, love, love to be a “real” writer and write full-time.
P.P.S. Have you still not entered the Prevention Cookbook Giveaway for your chance to win an online cookbook of over 60 recipes, but also THIS prize giveaway?! Details here! Don’t delay, entries will only be accepted through January 1st, 2010!
