It’s true, I drink milk straight from the jug and the bowl!
The commercials are accurate, milk does the body good! Real real good! I’m a big fan of the milk mustache!
So get this, baby girl took a road trip last Summer with another family for lacrosse. Now, I knew upfront that “the mother” was a little over the top in terms of healthy eating. What I didn’t expect was for “mom” to opnionate my impressionable tween daughter with her warped foodie views. Particularly about good o’l fashioned ice cold milk.
The “Mom” said, “drinking milk will make you fat!” She actually said these very words to my child! Have you ever? She basically busted out the ultimate F word on my girl! FAT! Wow. Healthy Hitler further ranted on about the negative benefits of yogurt, bacon, eggs, burgers, cereals and other “fine” normal foods that growing tween/teen athletic girls should not be eating. For one week I allowed this woman, who’s audience was four young female teen athletes, to speak this language! UGHH. I was appalled that she would say such crass things to these dolls. I feel sorry for her own children. Seriously, hello…I’m all about clean healthy eating and good nutrition but I would NEVER in a million years tell someone’s kid not to drink milk! My comedic child gracefully takes things in stride. While on the trip, she called me and said, “Mom, Mrs. Soinso makes you look like the Cookie Monster.” I asked her to clarify what she meant. “Mom, she is so strict with her daughter’s eating. Compared to her, life in our house is like living in Candy Land.” I laughed for weeks.
Me and Mr. Chicken Fry come from generations and generations of milk drinkers. What’s more, not one of our grand parents or parents were or are over weight. All family members have lived long lives and had strong bones.
As you will see, whole milk and 2% milk do contain fat. Skim milk however, has zero fat. Skim milk has ALL of the same vitamins and nutrients that 2% milk contains minus the…say it with me…FAT!
And I can promise you… cross my heart hope to die stick a thousand needles in my eye that MILK has been responsible for absolutely ZERO people getting fat!
Especially skim milk which is what me and my family drink! Milk is a good source of protein. Someone would have to drink gallons and gallons of whole milk a day to get FAT from Milk.
FYI>>>Chocolate milk is one of the best recovery drinks to gulp down after a long run or bike ride!
So, wear your milk mustache proud. Drink up milk lovers of the world.
Have you ever encountered a “Mrs. Soinso”?
Happy sunday workout warriors!
Love, got milk, it’s smooth as silk!
