Guys, this is not an ad. But every once and a while I like to share info on products that are great for my family, in case they can brighten your days, too:
Here at Leap Little Frog, we talk about building a safe, sustaining habitat–this is sometimes a metaphor for laying in a community and an arsenal of healthy, creative habits. And sometimes it’s literal, like feeding your body with useful stuff.
If you haven’t had Siggi’s Icelandic-style skyr (cow’s milk yogurt) yet, it’s worth a go. Like Greek-style yogurt, it’s strained and very rich. But it’s only 100 calories per small container, with a whopping 14 grams of protein!
Now I thought this would be a great way to get more protein into my picky eater kid… but most of the flavors are a bit more, well, adult. The pumpkin is richly spiced; the orange & ginger has huge, spicy chunks of fresh ginger. The berry flavors are more obvious kid wins, but they are still pretty tangy/savory.
The eco-friendly packaging is clever. You have to peel off the paper label to read some of the creation myth, which runs like this: Siggi Hilmarsson, homesick for his native Icelandic skyr (a thick, creamy, high protein yogurt), began making small batches of his mother’s recipe in his NYC kitchen back in 20014. Within a few months he’d quit his day job to pursue full-time Icelandic-style yogurt making.
It takes a village–or a whole pond–of creative voices and talents, all croaking out good stuff. Here’s to another bowl full of goodness in the world.
