Last Autumn, Chris and I were able to take a trip of a lifetime to Iceland. We had an amazing time. One of the ways we like to take in a culture while traveling is to take in the local cuisine. Though we weren’t brave enough to try the rancid shark delicacy, we did enjoy Skyr.
Skyr is a thicker and tarter yogurt than traditional American yogurt from Iceland. When we were there, we were able to enjoy Skyr both on its own and used in other dishes.
I haven’t had the chance to have Skyr since our trip. Yesterday in Whole Foods, Siggi’s Iceland-Style Skyr was on sale. I grabbed two and brought them back with me to NYC. This morning, I enjoyed one mixed with pumpkin granola.
Lunch was simple today: a Morningstar Chik Patty on an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with spinach served with a side of Half Naked popcorn. Later, I beat the midday hunger with a banana.
Right now, I am making some bulked up mac n cheese. If it comes out good, I will share the recipe tomorrow. Also, I am currently baking these:
Kelley highly recommends them, and they are so easy to make – just add low-fat vanilla yogurt. I’ll let you know how they come out! I plan on enjoying one after my late-night PT with a glass of red wine. Perfect, no?
