WHICH MILK SHOULD I have?
SKIM MILK Boasts 8 grams of protein and is lower in calories than whole, but since it lacks fat, it may leave you hungry, which Harvard research shows may cause you to eat more. Best for: Postworkout. ALMOND MILK Stick with unsweetened, which has zero sugar and 30 calories per serving, compared to 100-plus calories and up to 20 grams of sugar in sweetened. Best for: Mixing with protein powder. COCONUT MILK Most of its calories (up to 45) are from fat, lending a rich flavor. Nutritionally, it’s a wash—no bad stuff (sugar) but almost no good stuff (protein). Best for: Desserts. SOY MILK Packs more protein (5 to 8 grams) than other non-dairy milk, but some flavored versions have up to 17 grams of sugar: 34 percent of your daily limit. Best for: Coffee, cereals. GOAT MILK A possibility for the lactoseaverse who want something like cow milk. The slightly sweet bev offers 5 grams of protein. Best for: Soups, shakes.
