This blog post is brought to you by Yoplait. Yoplait’s new cultured yogurt, Oui, is thick and creamy and is the perfect treat for a little “me time.”
We women wear many hats. We’re usually the family chef, chauffeur, accountant, nurse, and maid – just to name a few of our roles. We often put taking care of other people ahead of taking care of ourselves. What we need to do, though, is to realize that it is okay to take a break and take care of ourselves. If we don’t take care of ourselves, then we can’t do a good job of taking care of others.
“Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges. So relax.” — Bryant McGill
While men may seek relaxation through watching sports and drinking beer, we need some solitude and a touch of refinement. For solitude, I recommend finding a quiet spot and getting lost in a good book. I select one of the books off my bookshelf and take a literary journey to France or some other dreamy destination.
Speaking of France, there’s a new French style yogurt by Yoplait that I indulge in while reading. It’s the equivalent of a culinary journey to France.
Yes to Yogurt
The yogurt is aptly named Oui – that means “yes” in French. It is inspired by Yoplait’s traditional French recipe and is cultured in a cute little recyclable glass pot for 8 hours. This makes it nice and thick with a creamy and cuttable texture.
Oui is made with non-GMO ingredients such as whole milk and real fruit in each adorable pot. They contain no artificial flavors and no colors from artificial sources. The eight flavors (Strawberry, Vanilla, Blueberry, Peach, Black Cherry, Coconut, Lemon, and Plain) are made to be enjoyed slowly.
Would you believe that Oui is available at Walmart? That means that on your next shopping trip you can pick up a couple of these little cuties.

I want to tell you that it’s okay if the dishes are dirty for 30 minutes longer. The vacuuming and laundry can wait, too. Take a little “me time.” You’ll find that if you do, you’ll be happier and better able to tackle those tasks.
