Yoplait, Swap Day, and curbing your appetite

I have been doing the Yoplait challenge for a while now. I swap out on item I would normally eat for a Yoplait Yogurt.

I like the different flavors and it makes me feel great knowing I am doing something good for myself.

Here is a tip I received this week:
Swap high calorie snacks for foods filled with water! Foods with high water content — think soups, salads, cucumbers and watermelon—help can you feel satisfied on fewer calories.

I love all of those items and I think it will be easy for me to swap out those chips for some yummy watermelon, or cucumbers.

This Saturday 1/21/12, Yoplait Light and Swap.com will be celebrating the 2nd Annual World Swap Day. This is the day where people swap everyday things such as; Passing along clothes to a neighbor, baby items to a new mom, or passing along a great book to a friend.
The idea of World Swap Day – raising awareness for swapping as the new shopping!
And we all could do a lot more swap and a lot less shop these days!



In celebration of the occasion, Yoplait Light and Swap.com would like to offer a few easy swaps, perfect to implement this weekend.

Quick and Easy Swap Tips:
·        This weekend, shop your closet. If you haven’t worn it in a year, then chances are you aren’t going to. Only keep clothes that you love and that make you feel beautiful. Let someone else love the things that are just taking up space in your closet. Take these clothes and head to a swap party, or swap them out at the local thrift store for some moolah!
·        Dying for dessert but still working on your New Years’ diet? Swap a high-calorie confection for our Fresh Pineapple with Ginger Yogurt Sauce! Check out the recipe, and many more on Yoplait’s Facebook page,here!
·        Swap one night a week of your TV schedule for Family Night! Try to exercise, whether it’s exercising your body with a family bike ride, or your creativity with a game of Charades!

There are a few different ways to get your swap on this Saturday– Swap.com is hosting swap events all over the country, so check out events.swap.com to find an event in your area, or to register your own swap event!
