Straws are bad...

Only if you drink alchool through them that is!

See proof here...

And here...

And most definitely here...

Gets me every time *hiding face in shame*

Todays Thirsty Thursday is brought to you by the ingredient greek yogurt

Greek Yogurt 
(aka: Strained yogurt, yogurt cheese, labneh) is yogurt which has been strained in a cloth or paper bag or filter to remove the whey, giving a consistency between that of yogurt and cheese, while preserving yogurt's distinctive sour taste.

This yogurt has become increasingly popular because it is richer in texture than unstrained yogurt, but low in fat; since straining removes water and dissolved salts and sugars, by volume, it has twice the protein of regular yogurt and less sodium, carbohydrates, and sugar.

Are you on the Greek Yogurt train yet?  No, okay well how about this...

Greek yogurt can have twice as much protein as regular yogurt. The extra protein will help you feel full and leave you feeling satisfied. Commercial Greek yogurts at supermarkets have almost double the protein content of standard yogurt brands. One cup of plain, low-fat conventional yogurt usually contains 5 to 10 grams of protein, where Greek yogurt averages about 13 to 20 grams of protein.Source

Things i often use Greek Yogurt in

Smoothies (instead of milk, has a thicker consistency for maximum suckage, yes i just said suckage)
Mexican food (instead of sour cream)

Parfaits (instead of Icecream)

Now all aboard, i'm making Strawberry Chocolate smoothie today with yoplait, hahaaa no i'm not i'm using the new PC Greek Yogurt - woot woot! (thats my train engine whistle noise, impressed? well you should be)

Okay its time for me to take my conductor hat off (size petite) and head off to work, thursday is the new friday - for me at least, i have a 4 day weekend to get our house in order to put on the market, i'm excited and daunted at the task ahead of us, i'll upload some before and after pictures for you because i don't feel i embarrased myself enough in the above photos, i'm a sucker for before and afters and obviously for maximum suckage - yes i went there again ;o)
