I don’t frequently splurge at coffee shops for a frappuccino. While I love them, they don’t do much for me except empty my wallet. I mean, they TASTE awesome and everything, but if I am going to indulge, I want to do it in a way that offers my body some benefit. Using Silk Soymilk in place of regular milk gives me some added protein in my morning- which keeps my body fueled. I am NOT always the best about breakfast- so having even a little protein boost mid-morning in a coffee drink gives me a pick-me-up that I need, in more ways than one. I don’t like eating a lot before I work out, it makes me feel quite nauseous, but usually after I do work out, I’m off and running errands- I don’t always have time to stop for a full meal before I’m taking on the day in full force. My compromise is to have a small, simple breakfast and have an earlier, heavier lunch… but there’s that hangry time in between that hits me mid-morning.
Silk Soymilk is a non-dairy milk option that gives 8 grams of heart-healthy protein per serving. It tastes delicious is cholesterol free and naturally low in fat. That’s kind of a no-brainer for me when I’m looking for a way to stave off hunger pangs mid morning but am also in the mood for an indulgent (but lighter) treat.
