A battle rages every morning at our breakfast table. The battle lines have been drawn. My wife launches her healthy options at the kids and me while we long for donuts and sugary cereal.
My wife and I grew up in homes that had very different approaches to breakfast. She grew up with the sugary goodness of Pop Tarts while I grew up eating bland, cardboard tasting bowls of Wheaties. I still remember going to college and wolfing down multiple bowls of Captain Crunch.
Now ten years after college and two kids later, I can no longer eat sugary cereal and maintain a healthy diet. I still want something that tastes good at breakfast though.
Recently we tried Tillamook’s new yogurt line that might just bring a cease fire to our breakfast battles.
Tillamook’s yogurt is free from the artificial junk that fills our processed food today. Usually known for their delicious cheese, now Tillamook is using milk from their happy, healthy cows in their new yogurt line. The yogurt is free from:
- Artificial sweeteners,
- Artificial flavors or colors
- High fructose corn syrup
- Artificial growth hormones
One of our daughters has a phobia of fruit-at-the-bottom yogurts so she loved how the fruit was mixed in with Tillamook’s yogurt. Even our picky eater daughter gave the yogurt two thumbs up and wanted more. Dad loved it too! It’s a great balance between healthiness and great taste. We finally enjoyed peace from the breakfast battles.
Here’s coupon for you to try it out with your family.
We mix the yogurt with a homemade granola recipe that we call “crunchies.” This granola is delicious paired with the new Tillamook yogurt.
