Thirsty Thursday – Milk

How do you feel about Milk? Do you drink it on a regular basis? I don’t get nearly enough of it, if I am being honest. I know it’s a good choice to enjoy with a meal because it helps our bodies to handle the natural rise in blood sugar that happens when we eat carbohydrates.

Choose Low Fat 1% or Skim milk, and make sureyou count it in your meal plan. One cup of skim milk provides about 12 grams of carbohydrate, 80 calories, calcium, and vitamin D.

Milk also provides  the calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin D your body needs for many essential functions. Loaded with nutrients, Milk makes a great choice!

Plus, strong bones! 🙂
