Greek Yogurt

Despite America's economic slump, Greek yogurt sales have managed to increase by 2500%. Now that's pretty impressive!

A recent report found sales of the thicker and higher in protein alternative to regular yogurt rose from $60 million a year to $1.5 billion a year!

We wish we would have gotten aboard that gravy train!

So why Greek? Why now?

It's healthier! Experts agree Greek yogurt's low-fat and high-protein ingredients have convinced customers it's worth double the price of regular yogurt.

Looks like Greek yogurt is here to stay!

Google Maps Adds Bike Directions!

Filed under: FitnessBike It

Hubway

With biking becoming a more popular method of transportation in major cities, Google Maps has added a bike direction feature!

Sweet!

So now you have a bike, two feet to work the pedals, two hands to steer, and Google directions? What more of an excuse do you have? Get out and bike!

Boston is the latest U.S. city to offer its commuters a bike-sharing program, called the Hubway, which members can use any of the 600 bikes at any of the 61 stations around the city as a cheap alternative to gas.

Don't wait for your city to implement a bike-sharing system to start though! Spend a couple hundred bucks on a good bike that will last you YEARS and you'll save well over that amount on gas!

If not for economic reasons, consider commuting on two wheels for your health! Why burn gas when you can be burning calories instead?
