I don’t know exactly what it was that prompted me to buy this.

I take a probiotic every single morning, but I felt the desire to try these since I love Siggi’s yogurt. (This desire inside of me also makes shopping on a budget impossible for the record.) So I bought them (again, no budget) and it turns out  I love them!  They a perfect pre/post-workout snack in the morning – or if I’m feeling like a few extra probiotics would be of benefit.

What I liked:

  • Not overly sweet, it actually tasted like yogurt + strawberries
  • Sweetened with agave, it still boils down to sugar, but I feel more comfortable with agave than straight sugar
  • High ingredient standards (grass-fed cows, nothing artificial, etc.)
  • Full of probiotics!

Wished:

  • It wasn’t so expensive ($4.99 at Whole Foods puts it over $1/bottle)

I honestly can’t think of anything else that I would change (that rarely happens) so next up is trying the other flavors!

in my cupboard: wasa thin & crispy flatbread

I’ve been a fan of  Wasa crackers for a really long time, but it had been a while since I’d had them recently. When I saw that they had a new flatbread variety, I just had to return to my roots and give them a try! If it’s any indiation, they didn’t last long in

in my cupboard: black bean pasta

Last week I shared a recipe with you for black bean pasta with chorizo & peppers. Turns out this black bean pasta gem that I picked up on a weekend when I was visiting my parents is pretty hard to track down, but a lot of you were interested in where you could find it.
