This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
I started drinking a2 Milk® several months ago thanks to the ambassador program. It’s safe to say that I have not experienced any problems with it. In fact, I drink milk more and cook with it more because I know that it won’t upset most stomachs. I’m bringing back that daily habit from my younger years. Because it’s no different in taste and consistency of milk, I’m using it everywhere – cereals, mashed potatoes, my late night milk-egg, and baking too.
I’m a whole milk kind of gal, but they also do skim and low fat.
As more of my friends’ kids are heading back to school now that the end of summer is looming, I have been that crazy aunt/friend scouting all the amazing school supply sales, while touting the benefits of a2 Milk ®. My love for the latest and greatest in writing utensils and art supplies never seems to fade. That, and adult coloring books are now a thing, so I don’t feel weird stocking up on colored pencils and markers. The kids do their homework, and the adults color alongside.
But back to the milk – with approximately 8 times the protein of almond beverages and 6 times the potassium levels of rice beverages, there’s no question what I would serve to the kids if they were hanging out with me before or after school. a2 Milk® is pure farm-fresh milk that is rich in protein, calcium and potassium.
Woo! Scored a $1 off coupon too!
An independent study showed 1 in 4 Americans experience some degree of discomfort after drinking milk; yet only 5-7% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition. The A1 protein seems to be the culprit behind Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort and is currently in all conventional and organic milks on the U.S. market. So with an easy switch, all that discomfort can be avoided!
Back to school means that I have been stocking up on my supplies, as well as that a2 Milk®. It’s been pretty easy to find in stores. However, if you’re having any trouble, check out the super helpful store locator tool.
