MiLK does a body good

Milk is a great source of protein, containing Whey & Casein.  Drinking milk will provide your body with amino acids which help rebuild that muscle you just destroyed during your workout!  It also supplies us with Calcium (to keep our bones strong), Vitamin A (for vision) and Vitamin D (classified as a steroid hormone).  So try to start including a small amount of milk into your diet.  We drink Unsweetened Almond Milk which is good for those of you that have allergies to lactose, soy, or gluten…but its downfall is it doesn’t provide the protein (whey/casein) like the others do.   🙂

Here is a comparison of the nutritional values in milk from Bodybuilding.com:

155 calories; 8g fat; 8g protein in Whole Milk

112 calories; 3g fat; 9g protein in 1% Milk

135 calories; 5g fat; 9g protein in 2% Milk

100 calories; 4g fat; 7g protein in Soy Milk

93 calories; 0g fat; 9g protein in Skim Milk

60 calories; 2.5g fat; 1g protein in Almond Milk
