Hey there beauties. It turned out to be a beautiful day here in Omaha even though the weather was a little touch and go earlier…hello down-pouring rain.
My nerves are shot today because I’ll be sending another one of my babies to Kindergarten tomorrow. I think it’s hard mostly because it makes you realize how quickly time really is going by. It’s true what they say, the older you are the faster time goes. My older two boys will be starting 6th grade and 3rd grade..so crazy..I still can’t get over the fact that I will have a 6th grader!!
I wanted to share my favorite mid-day snack with you that is a daily go-to for me. It’s the perfect balance of protein and carbs to keep me going during the afternoon slump and it also just happens to taste REALLY good.
Let’s chat for a minute about this little brand called Siggi’s. This is HANDS-DOWN my favorite yogurt of all time. Not only does it have the lowest sugar count of probably any other brand, but it also tastes sooooo good! It has the perfect thickness and consistency to it which I look for in a good yogurt.
About Siggi’s :
milk from grass-fed cows
no artificial colorings
no high fructose corn syrup
I love that Siggi’s is high in protein and they also use REAL fruit, not flavoring. Also because it’s an Icelandic Style-Style Skyr, it is much thicker, creamier, and more concentrated yogurt. One bite of this stuff and you will never go back to “regular” yogurt again.
Do you know the only thing that’s missing from this delicious treat…my topping…GRANOLA! I personally love to have a little crunch with my yogurt because it helps curb cravings for things like…hmmm…chips?
I have tried a ton of different brands, as well as homemade granolas, and find that my favorite, tried and true, granola brand is Bear Naked Granola V’Nilla Almond.
I stick to 1/4 cup to go over my one serving of yogurt. It gives the perfect crunch and has GREAT flavor…not too sweet. I love the whole almonds in it as well.
I’ve tried almost every flavor Siggi’s has to offer with the V’Nilla Almond and it really goes nicely with all of them, so pick your favorite! My top pick might have to be the Vanilla Siggi’s, but I do like the fruit options as well.
I have no idea how many calories are in my daily snack as I’m not a calorie counter, but I do know that it is a healthy balanced snack option that keeps me full and satisfied until dinner…WIN!
Do you have a healthy go-to snack? What’s your favorite?
If you try this combination, I hope that you love it as much as I do.
I’m going to take Hudson to get his last minute school supplies and then we are going to see the Emoji movie..just me and him. I love getting that one-on-one time with my kids as much as I can.
