FoodSiggi’s Icelandic Style Skyr

Between Thanksgiving feasts, company parties, Christmas cookies, and celebrations with friends, the average American consumes an extra 600 calories every single day between Thanksgiving and New Years! That being said, it’s important to squeeze in as many healthy meals and foods (and workouts!) as possible during this indulgent-filled time, with my personal recommendation of Siggi Icelandic yogurt!

A few years ago, I developed an interest in fitness and nutrition and realized how important eating breakfast is. More importantly, a nutritiously-sound breakfast. Recently, I’ve been incorporating yogurt in my daily diet and have been sampling all kinds including Fage (fell in love with Greek yogurt during my trip to Greece) Stonyfield Farms Pumpkin Pie, and everything in between! I’d had my eye on Siggi’s Icelandic Style non-fat yogurt made from skim milk and 100% natural; doesn’t contain any artificial sweeters (sweetened with agave nectar!), artificial flavorings, preservatives, or gelatin. Each 6 oz container contains at least 16 grams of protein, which is sure to keep you full and satisfied for hours!

When I finally tried Siggi’s, I was blown more than thrilled. I never thought anything could beat my Fage, but with the unique flavors like Pomegranate and Passion Fruit, Grapefruit, and Acai, Siggi has become a mainstay on my weekly grocery shopping list. Naturally, my favorite flavor is the Orange and Ginger variety, made with candied ginger orange extract. The plain is also fabulous, which I like to top with granola or mix in fresh fruit preserves. I found my Siggi at Whole Foods, but you can visit their website to find the closet location to you!

    I 2nd that ! WF in SF just started carrying Siggi. I’ve been a Chobani consumer for months now. I prefer my yougurt thick not runny. When I saw Siggi and that it has none of the usual sweetners, I thought lemme try this. Altho I like Chobani, I had always wished for the same thickness without so much sweetness. Siggi is the answer! It’s a bit more tart than Chobani but that’s what one gets with no sweetners. Siggi is like the cheesecake of yogurt 🙂

    At my parents’ house their groecry store sells a huge tub (I think 1 lb.?) of the Fage. That’s what I ate all last summer and how I got hooked on Greek yogurt. It’s great how it fills you up and packs a punch of protein. For some reason our house only sells the Fage in the dumb little (expensive) containers, so I get the big tub of Chobani when it’s on sale. That, or I just get plain normal store brand yogurt. I usually never buy flavored yogurt. I prefer to add my own jams and jellies and honey to it as I wish, or eat plain.
