The Importance of Milk
Are you getting enough milk in your diet? For the sake of calories, try drinking skim milk instead of whole or 2% milk. Be sure to also use skim milk in your coffee or tea, on cereal, and when baking. There are about 122 calories in 8 ounces of 2% milk compared to only 91 calories in 8 ounces of skim milk. You may not even be able to notice the taste difference, and you can save up to 30 calories per cup.This may not seem like much, but by the end of the day you will have saved enough calories to add a well deserved healthy snack.
If you're like most people today and can't drink regular milk, you can also try soy or almond milk (which has about 60 calories for 1 cup). This will also help you get sufficient calcium into your daily diet.
