Free activities for the kiddies and an opportunity for residents to meet their haulers and learn about Gwinnett County's solid waste and recycling program.

Hey Yogurt Fans ~ Kroger has you covered

I'll share what I have learned about some new cultured dairy blend options from Kroger (and its family of stores including Ralph's , Fred Meyer ,Scott's etc.)

For those of you watching carbohydrates Kroger has its CARBmaster brand which has lower carbs, calories and sugar than regular yogurt. Lots of fun flavors including dessert ones like Cinnamon Roll and Caramel Spice Cake. Mmm Caramel Spice Cake with 60 calories and 8 grams of protein.

Kroger also has a fun and delicious line of tart and tasty Greek and Greek Lite yogurts with no fat and 90 calories. So far my favorites are Black Cherry and Honey. I was introduced to the line by and a video taping was suggested so I included it for fun. Makes me laugh. Do turn it up.

Simple Truth and Simple Truth Organic ~Inspiring to those aspiring to eat more healthfully

There are a lot of products in this great new line at the Kroger family of stores.The last number I saw was over 140 products and growing. The fresh and simple packaging makes it easy to spot on the shelves and you can find Simple Truth and Simple Truth Organic in nearly every department of the store.

Just click this for their ever growing list ~ all neatly categorized.

One of the first things I noticed on the shelves that was not in my bzzkit (Lucky me ! I received coupons and samples from BzzAgent dot com! ) was The Simple Truth Organic Margherita Pizza. Just the right amount of crisp and flavor and riding on the healthy wave I served orange slices with it. 
 Simple Truth and Simple Truth Organic products make riding the healthy wave a whole lot easier since they are "Free from 101" artificial ingredients and preservatives. Next time you are coasting your Kroger aisle looking for healthy stuff it just got a whole lot simpler.
