Tues. Sept 18th

Cow's Milk is full of Calcium & Protein!

Daily Tidbit:   I ended up having 3 cups of Milk today!  I typically go for two, but ended up with an extra with my lunch.  There are so many different types of Milk out there these days, but I still drink good old fashioned Cow's Milk!  Other options like Soy, Almond, Rice, Goat's milk and Coconut are good alternatives for those with a lactose intolerance or allergies or taste preferences, but  Cow's Milk is a powerhouse of nutrition providing more Calcium and Protein than the other options for very few calories (if you are drinking the Low Fat/ Fat Free variety!)  To read the pros & cons of the all the options, check this out:

(I happen to be lactose intolerant and have been drinking Lactose Free, Fat Free Cow's Milk for over 15 years - Target's brand makes this much more affordable that it used to be!)
