Start Your Day with Milk


A glass of skim is a great way to start your day and provides 8 grams of protein. The brand Fairlife milk boosts the protein up to 13 grams and as a bonus is lactose-free. Soy milk (be sure to look for no-added-sugar varieties) is right up there with 7-8 grams of protein per cup.

Almond, cashew and rice milk have become popular alternatives, but they are lacking in the protein department.

Add a touch of chocolate to your milk with no-added-sugar chocolate milk powders, hot cocoa mix, chocolate syrup or Carnation Instant Breakfast—and then enjoy hot or cold.

Use milk as the basis for a smoothie—just add protein powder, fruit, peanut butter, yogurt, or juice for a breakfast treat.
