From the same company that brings us Lactaid, Bailey’s coffee creamers and Hershey’s milkshakes comes Simply Smart Milk. Founded in 1846, Hood’s dairy now offers Simply Smart brand milk, which offers the taste of a fuller fat milk without all of the calories. Hood’s natural technique of ultra-filtration removes some of the water that makes skim milk look watery. Afterwards, you’re left with milk that tastes richer and is still nutritious. NO chemicals!! NO hormones!
You can check out more product info at www.besimplysmart.com that will detail how Simply Smart’s Fat Free milk tastes more like 1% and the 1% milk tastes more like whole milk – that’s something I would love to add to my coffee!

Myth #1— Everyone knows that eggs are a better source of protein than milk.
Truth #1— Many women are uninformed about the amount of protein contained in milk.
The survey found that 97% of respondents were unaware that a glass of Simply Smart Milk contains more protein than an egg – it has 10-11 grams, depending on the type of Simply Smart Milk. The Fat Free and 1% Low Fat milks offer 25% more protein and 20% more calcium than regular whole milk and the Simply Smart Chocolate Fat Free Milk has 37% more protein than regular reduced fat chocolate milk. Another interesting finding revealed that, despite having more breakfast options, women still choose to have milk in the morning.

Truth #2—Milk still makes an appearance at the breakfast table for 73% of women!
Whether it’s a delicious bowl of cereal with milk, a creamy glass of milk on the side, or used in a recipe, milk remains a top choice for women at breakfast. Simply Smart Milk is a good option to start the day with because it’s nutritious and delicious, available in Fat Free, 1% Low Fat, and Chocolate Fat Free. The survey found that women enjoy milk at other times of the day as well.
