$50 Giveaway and a Smoothie

How's your resolutions holding up? Since it's the New Year and I've done well with trying new foods that I normally shy away from, in addition I'm also gonna start doing giveaways. That got your attention didn't it? I want to take a second and thank all of my current followers and readers out there for supporting me over the past 2 years and I thought it's time to give back a little. I love sharing all the food we're eating and being inspired by and I hope you're getting to try some of the recipes or at least drool a little every once in a while!

If you could use a little extra cash at the grocery store then boy do I have something you want! Safeway and it’s family stores, Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randall’s, Vons and Genuardi’s are offering one Finding Inspiration In Food reader a $50 gift card for some groceries! How cool is that!!!

I love Yoplait yogurt and I'm even posting one of their recipes today at the end of this post to share as well so I hope you give it a try.

You also have until next Tuesday, February 9th to take advantage of a special Safeway deal where you can purchase two 4-packs of Fiber One yogurt for only $4!

Here is some information on the Fiber One Yogurt….

Best-selling author and food expert Lisa Lillien, AKA Hungry Girl, has given her “seal of approval” to the new Fiber One yogurt, the only leading nonfat yogurt with 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber (20 percent of the Recommended Daily Value). It is also a good source of calcium and vitamins A and D, making this a guilt-free and all-around great choice for dieters and those watching their weights. Each cup includes the creamy, delicious taste you expect from Yoplait, and you don´t have to feel guilty about enjoying it.
