Over the past year I have been trying to switch from 2% milk to organic or almond milk. This switch is not very easy for me considering that I have been drinking 2% my entire life. My husband loves skim milk, but I could not drink that because it tasted like watered down milk to me.
That is whenever I discovered Horizon Organic Milk. The first time I tried this I did not like it at all. My sister-in-law Karen let me try it after a race. I was not used to drinking milk after any run so this was not appetizing at all. Then I started looking into the benefits of drinking chocolate milk after a run and noticed that there was tons of things I did not know such as:
1. helps with muscle recovery
2. Loaded with calcium, Potassium and Magnesium which are used up during workouts and need to be replenished.
3. You want to replenish the carbohydrates that you have spent during your workout.
I started drinking Horizon Organic Lowfat Chocolate Milk Plus DHA-Omega 3 this past year. DHA-Omega 3 is a valuable nutrient that helps support the brain, heart and eyes. (Source: Horizon Organic Milk)
I usually purchase the half gallon or the milk boxes. The milk boxes are the perfect size to stick in your kids lunch boxes or in your own and to grab whenever you need a refreshing pick me up.
Horizon’s milk comes in four great flavors as well: chocolate, vanilla, regular milk and strawberry. My personal favorite and what I buy the majority of the time is the chocolate. Another great feature about these small milk boxes is that they can be stored in your pantry until you are ready to use them.
I have also used other products buy Horizon Organic, including their lowfat cottage cheese, string cheese, yogurt and eggs.
I love love love their products! If you have not tried some of them then you need to go quickly to a grocery store and pick up one of their products. Have I mentioned that the chocolate milk is my favorite!!
