Swap It Out Sunday

Lately (well for quite a while now) there has been a lot of hype about chocolate milk for recovery.  This is all well and good, but how about chocolate milk for a healthy snack alternative.

chocolate milk

This is a perfect snack replacement for two reasons.  This has great nutritional value and fixes up that sweet tooth.  I love this treat post run, as ‘dessert’, just as an afternoon snack.  I cup of skim milk with the lite chocolate syrup I use runs me 135 calories which is a perfect snack.  Even better, if I remember to get it at the store, the Silk Light Chocolate Soy Milk is fantastic and that one is only 90 calories.  Compared to a lot of other sweet treats, chocolate milk is a great way to cut some calories but not cut the taste!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
