As we all look for ways to use less plastic and take care of our environment, the great folks at Saugeen Country Dairy have found a way to use 40% less plastic in their yogurt containers while still providing strength and stability in their packaging. The outer part of the container is actually paper and can be easily removed, separating the plastic and the paper for recycling. Clever! And 40% less plastic each time I buy their delicious yogurt adds up for me, and then is multiplied by all of you. And it makes a difference. Hurrah for Saugeen!
This is not all I love about Saugeen Country Dairy. Not at all! They are exceptional!
Saugeen Country Dairy makes only two products: yogurt and kefir, both fermented milk products that nourish your gut and thereby improve your immunity. Kefir is less known: a consistency lighter than yogurt, but different because of its carbonated nature and characteristic tangy flavor. It’s enjoyed throughout Europe for its unique flavor and health benefits. Kefir means “well being”.
One of my favourite ways to enjoy Saugeen yogurt is with a scoop of hemp hearts stirred in for their protein and essential fat content, with or without a few blueberries added. I eat this a few times a week, and it keeps me satisfied for quite a while! I also enjoy the yogurt’s creamy goodness on its own. And I like to make mango lassies with either kefir or yogurt as a base; I add frozen mango, a little raw honey, a few drops of stevia, and a bit of water and blend it in my blender. These special drinks are very popular with my grandkids, too. And sometimes, I make yogurt cream cheese from a container of Saugeen yogurt poured into a cheesecloth-lined strainer. If you have my book, Discover the Power of Food, you’ll find the recipe on page 414. Plain (my absolute favourite – so fresh and creamy!) or garlic & parsley, or cinnamon & vanilla, this is a delicious and healthy spread I know you will love!
When you choose Saugeen, you help them care for the land and the animals in a responsible way. At the same time, you are taking the best care of YOU!
Saugeen is my choice…why not make it yours?
