Got Milk?

I love milk! I drink a lot of milk! So for our Fabulous Food Friday I thought it would be great to spotlight one of my favorite drinks!! I got all the following informations from www.gotmilk.comMilk is GREAT for our external beauty. The proteins, lipids, calcium, vitamin A, B6, biotin and potassium help hair to be soft and shiny!

Milk contains WHEY! So for those out there wanting to beef up their muscles, drink milk following a weight training session to help those muscles recover!!

PMS? Drink Milk!! A diet full of calcium can cut the physical and emotional symptoms in HALF!

Need better sleep? One of the proteins found naturally in milk can improve quality of sleep and even alertness the next day!

Good for strong bones. Milk is still the best way to get your daily calcium to decrease your chances of osteoporosis!

Teeth are bones too right?! Milk helps our teeth be strong and therefore reduces cavities {we all like that idea}!
Nutrition Data dot com also had this information:
This food is a good source of Protein, Vitamin B12 and Selenium, and a very good source of Vitamin D, Riboflavin, Calcium and Phosphorus.

The bad: A large portion of the calories in this food come from sugars.

One cup of 1% milk:
Calories - 102 - 5%
Sugar - 12.7g
Fat - 2.4 g - 4%
Protein - 8.2g - 16%
Cholesterol - 12.2mg - 4%
Vitamin A - 478UI - 10%
Vitamin D - 127UI - 32%
Vitamin B12 - 1.1mcg - 18%
Calcium - 290mg - 29%
Phosphorus - 232mg - 23%
Selenium - 8.1mcg - 12%

Go pour yourself a nice tall glass of milk! Your body will thank you!
