Chobani Goodness

So yeah. This happened today…


Which contained this….


Yup, my Canadian friends, we are in business!

The much talked about American yogurt Chobani is slowly starting to infiltrate Canada, starting in select stores in Toronto! I have been hearing about Chobani since I started reading health and fitness blogs about three years ago but, alas, greek yogurt in Canada was almost none! Thankfully, in the last year alone greek yogurt has exploded in Canada and we’re finally getting some quality competition to the paltry selection we used to have.

So what’s so great about Chobani? Well, here are some details about the product:

  • Made with only natural ingredients
  • Free of preservatives and artificial flavours
  • Free of synthetic growth hormones (Milk from cows not treated with rBST)
  • Includes 5 live & active cultures, including 3 probiotics
  • Packed with two times more protein than regular yogurt
  • Provides a good source of bone-building calcium
  • Free of Gluten
  • Certified Kosher
  • Safe for those with nut and soy allergies

So with all that wonderful goodness, I know you’re more curious about the taste! I promise to go through each flavour as I try them but, for now, I’ve only had the pomegranate!


Oh man. I can’t tell you how ridiculously excited I was to try this stuff. I’m such a freak for greek yogurt! The creamier the better so I had high hopes for this stuff!


Look at the creaminess! Right off the bat, it was super creamy and then I had a taste and my eyes almost rolled back into my head! Holy yummy! I’m not normally one for yogurt with fruit on the bottom as it’s usually too sweet but this wasn’t overly sweet at all! It just took that yogurt tang out and gave it a slight pomegranate flavour. I am in love! This has now shot up to one of my top three favourite greek yogurts!

If you’re in Toronto and you want to check Chobani out, check out their store locator to see if they sell in your area. I’m overjoyed to know they’re selling in two of my local grocery stores!

A Very Fit Chicks Giveaway

The holidays are in full swing in my neck of the woods! With school out of the way I haven’t had much time to celebrate, I’ve been buying gifts, workin’ hard and baking cookies and fudge! It’s a tough life but someone’s gotta do it! 😉

I did want to stop by, however, and give you a present in appreciation for how awesome you’ve been this year!

Remember last spring when I joined FIT CHICKS for two months and discovered a love for boot camp I never had (and, in turn, inspired my new love for TurboFire)? Well! My two favourite ladies have done it again and have opened their own store which proves that just because you love to sweat, doesn’t mean you can’t look cute!

Check out some of their swag:

I think you’re all pretty cool and so do Amanda and Laura from FIT CHICKS so they’ve decided that all this week you can order their merchandise and receive FREE SHIPPING until December 16th (all you have to do is use the code: holiday during checkout)! So if you’ve been wondering (and I know you have been), I’m pretty keen on the jacket, either colour will do you and can just have it shipped to my house. Deal? Deal.


Oh yes, and if you’re digging my cool new shirt, we’re also going to give you one as well! These shirts are SUPER comfy and I love the length on them! My personal opinion not good enough for you? Here are some stats:


· Fierce, Sassy, Sexy Fit Chick mantra down the side creates a slimming effect and shows off your curves
· Fitted, V- Neck Shirt that is flattering on all body types
· Longer fit tee to prevent riding up
· Choose from 8 different colors


· 100% Cotton for comfort
· Washing directions included
· Designed for casual wear, working out, yoga

So if you want to snag one of these hot ticket items in whatever colour you want, all you need to do is comment telling us which colour of t-shirt you want (head over to the store for all 8 colours) as well as what/who motivates you to be healthy? Contest ends on Friday, December 16th and I’ll announce the winner on Monday, December 19th! Oh, and my apologies but this is only for Canadian chicks!
