Siggi’s and Sports Nutrition

My new favorite sports nutrition product goes to …

Drink_filmjolk@2x…  for their non-fat drinkable yogurt, aka filmjolk.

Disclosure: I am  a   siggi’s ambassador. By  including siggis in my blog post I am eligible to win a trip to FNCE in Boston. I was not compensated for my time. Opinions are my own.

A staple of Sweden, now filmjölk is a staple in my home. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Scandinavian dairy tradition, it’s a version of kefir.  If you’re a sports enthusiast, take note: this is a BIG league recovery drink that supports a healthy digestive system! I stock my refrigerator with both raspberry and vanilla.  After a 5 mile run, drinking 8 ounces of the raspberry flavored smoothie starts my recovery process IMG_4512

which includes rehydrating and replacing electrolytes lost during exercise (8 ounces  provides 120 mg sodium and 240 mg potassium); preparing for tomorrow’s run by replacing glycogen stores (8 ounces provides 22 grams of carbohydrate); and repairing lean muscle  with high quality protein (8 ounces provides 8 grams of milk protein.)  Now here’s the icing on the cake,  it’s also rich in probiotic cultures (1 billion probiotics per serving)!   The tangy taste makes filmjölk the bomb!
