My Latest Grocery Store Find

Have you ever heard of Skyr? The Icelandic yogurt that is full of protein and probiotics? It was on sale this week at my local grocery store so I had to try it! The orange ginger flavor had just the right amount of sweetness and the straining process gives the yogurt this amazing thick texture. Their website says:

"...to make just one cup of skyr, with all that water going out, you need 3 - 4 times the amount of milk required to make a regular cup of yogurt. As a result of this process skyr comes out with 2-3 times the protein count of standard yogurt." 

You have to try it if you get the chance. If you like Greek yogurt, you will definitely like this too, and skyr is naturally fat free!!

College Girl No Longer!!

A new blog seemed necessary since I am no longer a "College Girl". Being a college graduate has its own unique issues and I am excited to share my first year out in the real world and all the cooking blunders that will go along with it! All my old posts have been imported so you can still view any of my previous recipes, but I am hoping that this year will bring a renewed focus on both "budget-friendly" recipes and the use of natural, unprocessed foods. Enjoy!
