protein fight club

by @according2kelly on September 27, 2013


i’ve been an unofficial milk ambassador for just about… forever.

so when i was invited to be a milk mustache ambassador – i practically screamed yes!


my fridge is always stocked with multiple gallons of milk.. it’s definitely a staple in our home. & our mornings basically revolve around milk.

while my kids prefer milk & cereal to start their days, i love a cool & refreshing milk-based smoothie.


& it’s NO secret that my absolute favorite go-to post run recovery drink is chocolate milk.


considering an 8 oz. glass of lowfat milk has 8 grams of protein, 9 essential nutrients,  12 grams of carbohydrates & only 100 calories & 2.5 grams of fat – it truly is the “breakfast of champions.”

Fact Sheet

it’s a proven fact, or at least it’s MY personal opinion, that a protein-rich breakfast can pretty much make or break your day. unfortunately not all protein sources are created equal.

luckily, milk delivers a high-high-quality protein that is sure to win any breakfast battle. don’t believe me? see if for yourself.

my kids & i have already taken the protein fight club pledge, to start each day with a glass of milk, but now i’m encouraging YOU do do the same.

so now, i want to know… how does milk fuel YOUR day? cereal with milk? smoothies? how does milk help you “accomplish” the morning?

disclaimer: i am proud to be a milk mustache ambassador. while i am compensated for this campaign by MILKPEP– our days really & truly are fueled by milk. at any given time you will find at least 4 gallons of “white” milk & 1 gallon of “chocolate” milk in our refrigerator. we always “got milk!”
