Hey guys! Long time no see! I’m still working on my big project – reveal soon! But I am so excited to announce that I am a brand ambassador with a2 Milk®. You know how much milk we go through in our home, and I’ve always shied away from it because it doesn’t really agree with me most times, but I am excited to try this milk!
Why you ask? Because a2 Milk® is farm fresh milk that comes from cows that do not have the A1 protein. The A1 protein is the culprit behind ‘Post-Dairy Digestive Discomfort,’ and currently in all conventional & organic milks on the U.S. market.
a2 Milk® only comes from heirloom a2 cows, ‘the way mother nature intended.’
An independent study showed 1 in 4 Americans have discomfort after drinking milk; yet only 3-4% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition. a2 Milk® contains approximately 6x the amount of calcium as soy beverages, approximately 8x the protein of almond beverages and approximately 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages.
I’ve always tried other milk alternatives and come back to cow’s milk because I just enjoy the taste more than other options. My daughter is a HUGE fan of milk on her cereal, and a cold glass of chocolate milk (and who am I to turn down a fresh cookie and a glass of milk to dip it in!). Plus, sometimes sitting down with Abbey and just enjoying a bowl of her favorite cereal with her is super fun.
So that’s great news for me, because I definitely fall in the 1 in 4 category! And adding more milk based protein has been something I know I’ve needed to do. And now I can without the fear of an upset stomach! I can’t wait to start using more milk in my cooking now! For real guys, it’s been a struggle!
If you want to try this out (and trust me it tastes BETTER than the regular stuff), we got ours at Sprouts! It’s super convenient because we have a couple locations near us and I love going in there anyway, so this gives me just one more reason to visit!
I can’t wait to share more a2 Milk® stuff with you soon!
