I'm almost sad to see January end since we've had such nice weather! Today was a beautiful light jacket day on the dairy farm. On my short,brisk walk to the dairy barn after we fed baby calves this afternoon, I was enjoying the late afternoon sunshine as much as this group of calves that were watching me as I passed by. While walking home, I was thinking about two of the resolutions I made for the New Year to improve my diet and exercise more.
One of my healthy choices for improving my diet is to drink low fat milk, also known as 1% milk. When comparing low fat and whole milk, low fat milk has:
same minerals and vitamins
If you're considering changing to low fat milk, here are steps suggested by the National Dairy Council:

Stick with 2% if you like it, or switch between 2% and 1%.
Stick with 1% if you like it, or switch between 1% and fat free.
