And that isn't that high pitched sound rappers seem to make a lot now.
Skyr is an icelandic yogout-esque food that I highly recommend for people who are into the following things:
-Reducing Sugar Intake
-Increasing Protein Intake
-Increasing Caloric Intake
-Quick/healthy food choices
-That "dairy" fix
Skyr is fantastic because, even in a flavoured version, it has much less sugar than flavoured yogourt, greek yogourt, or kefir. Also, for those of you into fitness, anything Icelandic should catch your attention. Why? Because a lot of the strongest and fittest people on the planet hail from that small country.
Anyway, here are the important facts about this food.
In a 3/4 cup serving of Raspberry Skyr you will get the following:
Now, that is pretty solid, and it passes one of my tests. (Grams of Protein + Grams of Fat > Grams of Carbohydrates). At this amount it would be a great snack, or part of a healthy breakfast.
If you wanted to make this snack even better, you could add 3 tablespoons of Hemp-hearts which would bring things up to...
3/4 Skyr + 3 Tablespoons Hemp-Hearts:
Calories: 280 ish
This might suffice as a full meal (albeit a light one) for someone looking to lose weight, or part of a meal/a nice snack for someone looking to put on mass.
It is also worth mentioning that if you find a "plain" version, that the macro-split will be even better (less sugar).
Great for when you are in a rush....
If you are "munchin out", in a rush, or having a lazy moment and don't feel like cooking, then you can do what I do and eat the whole jug at once. If you do that, you'll get in almost 50g of protein, 10g fat, and 37g of carbs. That isn't what I would recommend for a meal each day, but if you are on the run, a jug of Skyr is better than fast-food, not eating, or having the classic healthy snack which is actually not healthy; a solo apple. (If you don't know why having an apple as a snack is a bad idea, shoot me a message).
Lastly, I must warn you that Skyr is not entirely safe. I have now learned of the Skyrgamur, who raids and steals Skyr from nice people in Iceland. So, using the immortal words of Gandalf, "Keep it secret, keep it safe."
