It's National Dairy Month...Let's Have a Giveaway!

Remember this sneak peak from my Facebook page?
What?
You don't?

Well you really should go like me on Facebook!  You will have you chance though.

What I want to tell you is that June is National Dairy Month.

Gosh I love, love, love dairy.
I think if I was lactose intolerant I would just eat it anyway & suffer.
That's how much I love dairy.

I especially love yogurt and my latest obsession is Greek Yogurt.

Greek yogurt is made with milk and an active yogurt culture. Actually, it takes about four gallons of milk to make a gallon of Greek yogurt. Like all yogurt, it is a good source of calcium. Before its packaged, Greek yogurt is strained to remove some of the excess whey, resulting in a creamier, thicker, more satisfying yogurt.  Although brands vary, compared to regular non-fat yogurt, Greek yogurt typically has twice as much protein, less sugar, and less lactose.


 

DID YOU KNOW….that Greek yogurt is….

·         More Filling –The additional protein in Greek yogurt may help you feel fuller, faster.  Studies show that consuming protein, as compared to carbohydrate and fat, promotes stronger feelings of fullness.  Its thick, rich and creamy texture satisfies cravings and helps keep you on your diet.

 

·         Easier to Digest – Greek yogurt contains less carbohydrates than regular yogurt and therefore less lactose, making it easier to digest for those who are lactose intolerant.  Greek yogurt also contains the good kind of bacteria cultures, which help regulate healthy digestion.

 

·         A “Do” for Diabetics - Greek yogurt has a naturally lower sugar and carbohydrate content than regular yogurt, which makes it a great choice for diabetics who want a product that meets their nutritional needs while offering great taste.

 

·         Gluten-free - Greek yogurt is gluten free meaning it has contains no wheat, rye, or barley or other gluten-containing thickeners making it a great dessert alternative for those with Celiac disease.  (Because new product formulations are always occurring, please check product ingredient labels if you need to maintain a gluten-free diet)
 
Check out this handy dandy conversion chart for converting Greek yogurt:
 

CONVERSION 101: COOKING WITH GREEK YOGURT
1 cup butter = ¼ cup Greek yogurt + ½ cup butter

      1 cup oil = ¾ cup Greek yogurt
 1 cup sour cream = 1 cup Greek yogurt
 1 cup mayonnaise = 1 cup Greek yogurt
 1 cup cream cheese = 1 cup Greek yogurt
 1 cup buttermilk = 2/3 cup Greek yogurt + 1/3 cup milk or buttermilk
 1 cup heavy cream = ½ cup Greek yogurt + ½ cup heavy cream
 1 cup milk = ¼ cup Greek yogurt + ¾ cup milk
 1 cup crème fraiche = 1 cup Greek yogurt

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
