This post is sponsored by FAGE, but like always all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Spring is here and that means bikini season is just around the corner. And as a busy mom there isn’t much time for hitting the gym that’s why I am modifying my diet. But let’s be honest we need to eat things that the whole family eats because there is no time for making a separate meal plan with two little’s running around.
That’s why I have done a round up of some of my favorite recipes with Greek Yogurt.
