Fueling My Daily Marathons with Stonyfield Greek | http://mybakingheart.com

In less than twenty-four hours, thousands of runners will descend upon the streets of downtown Boston. And as you might know, Stonyfield is the official yogurt sponsor of this year’s special marathon. What you probably don’t know is that they’re sponsoring 10 runners who just missed the cut-off due to this year’s large amount of sign-ups. They’re also handing out hundreds of thousands of cups of organic yogurt on race day and giving away tons of healthy living themed prizes, including a year-long gym membership on the day of the marathon.

As Gary Hirsherg, Stonyfield’s co-founder says, “Like the members of Team Stonyfield, we felt compelled to participate in this year’s race to show our deep love and support for the city of Boston and New England community. We’re so proud of our inspiring team and are excited to be working with the Boston Athletic Association to make this year’s race a celebration of Boston’s tremendous spirit and resiliency.”

Trying to cook healthy, workout often and keep up with my family’s busy schedule, it sometimes feels like I’m running a marathon (or a half, at least). However, Stonyfield Greek helps make that marathon a little bit easier on me. I like to fuel my daily runs with Vanilla and organic granola, fresh juice and colorful berries. I also love grabbing some on my way out the door if I have an early morning or right before a boot camp class at the gym. The taste is smooth and the protein keeps me moving at just the right pace.

To get in on the giveaway action, simply tweet or instagram a part of your daily marathon with the hashtag #StonyfieldSuperFan and you’re entered to win that year-long gym membership I mentioned above!

Every Spring, my family starts discussing our Easter weekend plans. With 39 relatives on both sides, that accounts for quite a few opinions. Where we’ll eat, what to put on the menu, the number of places to set, when we’ll dye eggs, how many beds to make up and what we’ll wear to church. Plans almost always change once the weekend arrives, but we know without a doubt that a ham will be served.

And while the gals get to spend time with one another in the kitchen, we often miss out on the egg hunt, the movies and the catching up that goes on in the living room. But this year, HoneyBaked Ham is here to help you and me host a hassle-free Easter dinner, giving us more time to make memories and spend the holiday with our loved ones.

Once we visited the HoneyBaked Ham location at Preston Rd. and Plano Pkwy. in Plano, TX, we were ready to dig in before we’d even arrived home! Our dinner consisted of their Bone-in Quarter Ham, which is perfect for smaller groups of 6-8 people. We also added a Smoked Turkey Breast that was lightly seasoned and then fire-glazed with HoneyBaked’s signature sweet, crunchy glaze. Both were fully-sliced and ready-to-serve, which will save us even more time on Easter Day.

Complementing both the ham and turkey were our sides of Broccoli Rice Casserole and Green Beans Amandine. The casserole features broccoli florets and seasoned rice blended with a creamy cheddar cheese sauce and the beans are a classic dish lightly seasoned with a perfect blend of green beans, shallots and almonds. Both sides serve 6-8 people each.

Finally, for dessert, we chose a Cinnamon Walnut Coffee Cake. Made with pure bourbon vanilla and cultured sour cream, their moist bundt cake is double-layered with whole walnuts and rich cinnamon streusel.

Delicious and easy on you… I can’t think of anything better!
