First… I’d like to than all of you joining me the last several weeks while I worked on my New Year resolutions of better health! I’m so lucky to have been offered the opportunity to be a part of the #GotMilkGotProtein campaign. We’ve shared recipes, exercise routines, and more. I hope that you’ve taken away some great tips and began your own journey to better health. I’d also like to thank Fitbit for sending me a unit to assist in my goals. I’m pleased to say that I am up to roughly 5,000 steps a day. That’s half of the recommended daily goal… but it’s a start for this work-from-home girl! Especially since I was sick with Pneumonia for the majority of the last month. Ugh!
I think the most important information that you could have taken away from this series is the protein power hour message. You get the most out of your morning by eating a balanced breakfast full of Milk fueled protein between the hours of 6 and 8 AM. Most of us, as adults, find that we don’t have time for breakfast. But… what I discovered in my protein journey is that I have more energy to do the things I need to do when I eat breakfast. In addition… I stay fuller longer when I have a protein packed breakfast.
So… promise me that you’ll give it a shot!
Oh… and… check out my nutrition partner’s blog. Michelle Dudash is a registered nutritionist and wonderfully knowledgeable! She’s got a great post here about getting more protein in your day: http://www.michelledudash.com/2014/02/11/how-to-get-protein-at-breakfast/
