Argument-free health food

My name is Mir, and I… am a yogurt addict. Not only that, I’ve gotten my children addicted, too. Oh, the shame! Wait. No! I am not ashamed, because yogurt is good stuff; high in protein, full of friendly bacteria that make your tummy happy, and—if you get the right kind—completely free of any dubious ingredients you may not want to be eating. You never have to coax kids to eat well when there’s yummy yogurt around!

So when the folks from Voskos offered to send me some of their Greek yogurt for me and the kids to try it, I did a little happy dance. Because the only thing I love more than yogurt is Greek yogurt. And Voskos yogurt is hormone-free, antibiotic-free, and make with all-natural ingredients. Needless to say, we were a very happy bunch as we worked out way through all of the delicious Voskos varieties. (My favorite is their perfectly-blended Greek Honey, but to my surprise, I also fell in love with Exotic Fig. Yum!)

That was very generous of Voskos, but it turns out they are even more generous (and pretty!) than that—one lucky Want Not reader is going to win a one-month supply of Voskos Greek yogurt (30 coupons for free Voskos!) at the end of this contest. Want to win ’em? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, October 21st, 2010 for a chance to win. Winner to be determined by random number generation and friendliness of your bacteria. (Um. Ewww. Nevermind, just that random number thing.)

Ready? Go!

I hate wasting money to try things, just in case. Also, now that I’m on a 14-day course of some heavy antibiotics (stupid month-and-a-half “cold” that morphed into BAD BACTERIA in my sinuses — and not the sinuses that we normally worry about but some mysterious lower sinuses in the back near my throat — and then decided to travel into my throat), I need to ensure that my mouth is bad-bacteria free as well. Grrrrrr…

    (By the way, I’m having a bad few months. Can we go back to June and start the summer over?)

  185. We are HUGE yogurt consumers here but haven’t tried the Greek style yet…just keep hearing about it. A month’s free supply would obviously get us over that hump. <3
