You guys know that my blog is very light hearted and most of all real. As a blogger for Chobani, I think it’s important to address what’s going on in the world of yogurt!

As you may have heard in the news, Whole Foods will no longer be carrying Chobani Greek yogurt. Whole Foods said it will no longer sell Chobani because they are phasing out items that contain genetically modified ingredients. The decision was also influenced by Whole Foods’ plans to sell more exclusive products, and Chobani is available in most supermarkets. Funny that Whole Foods sells Dannon’s Oikos – which isn’t GMO-free, and Fage – which is available at tons of other grocery chains… makes their statement a little odd!

Of course, like everything else in this day and age, there’s now tons of controversy surrounding Chobani and GMOs (Chobani’s dairy cows are fed food that contains GMOs). This is a subject that comes up a lot on my Facebook and Instagram.

I often get asked “Why do you support brands that contain GMOs?” Well I don’t actually support GMOs, but I support healthy eating! I believe in promoting healthier options whether they be organic or not. While I do think organic is great for our bodies and should be consumed as often as possible, I also think that when it comes down to it…  the important thing is to eat fruits and vegetables and make healthy choices. If you can afford organic produce and dairy, that is great, but if you can’t, you’re still going to be better off than eating other foods (i.e. fried and junk foods). Fruits, veggies, and protein packed Greek yogurt for the win!

Something I truly love about Chobani, besides the fact that their yogurt is loaded with protein, preservative-free, and free of artificial flavors, is that they are an official sponsor for Team USA for the Winter Olympics Sochi 2014! I was beyond excited to see Chobani as an official sponsor for the London Summer 2012 Olympics because for the first time, Team USA was sponsored by a brand that athletes actually eat. Since the olympics are all about athletics and performance, it drives me crazy seeing sponsors like McDonalds and Coca Cola, because we all know that’s not what these incredible athletes are eating. I’m so pumped to see Chobani powering Team USA once again with their all natural yogurt!

To some people, consuming a 100% organic non-GMO diet is very important, but my main focus for myself and my blog is to choose the freshest and most natural foods that I can! Now that I’ve shared my take on the GMO/organic topic, it’s time for the fun stuff!

This past Sunday, the Chobani Yogurt Truck made a stop by my house as a way to say thank you. They’re HUGE truck had an awesome quote on the side of it that read “Every cup is preservative-free and artificial flavor-free. And we’re giving every cup in this truck away totally-free.” I invited tons of friends and neighbors to come over and enjoy some free Chobani Greek yogurt with me and the CHO team.

  4. Favorite Chobani flavor?! This is WAY too difficult, but if I had to pick I am 50/50 between mango & key lime. If we start talking Flips, I’m in trouble…I LOVE the blueberry power, key lime crumble, and nutty for ‘nana. See? It’s too hard to pick just one, but those are my favorites!! :)

  7. My kids eat a small cup each day after school as their snack. I can’t eat yogurt, or applesauce, because I broke my jaw when I was 5 and lived on soft food for a few months. Their fav flavor is raspberry with chocolate chunks.

  8. First off your doggies are SO DARN ADORABLE! I love your attitude towards healthy foods. It can be an overwhelming process to eat healthy, so we can’t get bogged down by too many details. I have tried my fair share of chobani and while I could say the plain is my favorite (I add in other jams or butters :) ) that’s no fun. So I would have to say the cherry or even blackberry! So different and yet divine. I actually haven’t had their orange, but that would be good too.

    Chobani does such a good job at incorporating flavors without making it seem too processed or overwhelming.

  22. Wow! This is so exciting, I love Chobani yogurt. It is my very favorite Greek yogurt brand. I got hooked on this yogurt when I got my wisdom teeth removed. It was pretty much all I could eat. :)

    I haven’t tried to many flavors, but the Key Lime Looks really delicious. I love their Black Cherry and Raspberry yogurt. They are so delicious. And their regular vanilla is awesome! :)

    Also, I just wanted to tell you thanks for sharing your thoughts on GMO. I totally agree with you. I think sometimes people can get extremely obsessive over what they eat – and that’s not healthy. We need to receive everything as a blessing from the Lord, and trust that He has given it to us for our nourishment and health. That doesn’t mean we eat junk food, it simply means that we do our best to make healthy choices, and respect the body He has given us.

    Thanks! God bless you and happy holidays! :_

  44. I only buy CHOBANI plain 0%. I use it for breakfast with chopped up fruit/berries & any combo of cereals. I add a scoop of can pumpkin.
    I also use the plain to mix in w/ sriracha, salad dressing & wing sauce! its so versatile! I heart it! and for me I live in Central NY…the Chobani plant is practically in my back yard {not really but close}

  65. I am an dedicated follower of your blog. However, I was incredibly disappointed with this past post. The information you are providing about Whole Foods Market is inaccurate, and this is creating a false impression for your loyal followers. I could not help but feel you were being biased towards Chobani. Chobani is not being phased out for GMO content. It also had nothing to do with the selling of my exclusive products. False information being spread. Sad to see. Do your research before spreading false information. You have lost a long and dedicated reader until this is remedied.

    • Hi Lauren! I did not mean for this post to come of as biased towards Chobani. I really wanted to emphasize the importance of making healthier choices over anything else. The information I I have addressed is based on statements from both companies but I will continue to follow this story. I support both brands and value their efforts to bring healthy natural products to consumers! Thank you for taking the time to comment as I am always learning new things from my readers!
