We all know the cycle – as the weather heats up, our motivation increases to get or maintain a toned physique. Often times this means giving up some of the foods we really enjoy to eat. However, these desires don’t need to be mutually exclusive – you can get or maintain a toned physique AND eat food that you enjoy! Try one of our favorite creamy, dreamy recipes that are both delicious and nutritious.

If you haven’t tried siggis yet – get up and immediately go buy it! The Icelandic “Skyr” is a thick and creamy yogurt that is high in protein and has a great flavor. Siggis is B.Komplete Approved because the flavored varieties are still lower in added sugar. It’s the perfect breakfast or snack to take with you during the summer! The B.Komplete Dietitian Team uses siggis in a variety of recipes during our Corporate Wellness Cooking Demonstrations. We love siggis, and we know that you will too.
