About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Making Cents of Breakfast

This week on Facebook I saw a fun Infographic from The Breakfast Project by America's Milk Processors.   The inforgraphic shows you how much of each drink you get for one quarter and what nutrients it contains. 

I am notoriously a bad breakfast eater and also a horrible milk drinker! I always got special treatment as a kid and negotiated with my mom that my glass of milk at breakfast was the milk that I would use in my cereal.  Thus I only had to have one glass of milk instead of two.  I know...horrible child especially since I wouldn't always drink the leftover milk in the bowl. 

Since then I have slightly improved my feelings towards milk.  I can handle skim milk if it is super cold or chocolate milk.  I really appreciate the information that they have provided and think an 8oz glass is quite manageable.  When I have chocolate milk in the house I have been known to have a small glass of that before heading to work.  I should work harder to switch to skim milk and getting more calcium in since sadly I am approaching my mid-30's and I want to avoid osteoporosis for sure. 

Thoughts? Do you include milk in your daily breakfast?
