OK~ Spring has arrived and it's time to get outdoors and get moving. The Midwest Dairy Council has teamed up with All In An Iowa Mom's Day, to help motivate you to get moving in the great outdoors! Dairy products are a fabulous way to fuel your body. It's also important to remember that dairy can be served in lots of fun and tasty ways. We've always enjoyed chocolate milk, and I am seeing reasons why we need to continue to enjoy it.

Here are some more facts from the Midwest Dairy Association:
• Fuel for an Active Lifestyle — Milk’s nine essential nutrients play an important role in fueling an active lifestyle. Drinking milk can be an ideal way to help the body refuel, rehydrate and recover after a workout.
• Chocolate Milk Is Nature’s Sports Drink — Research published in the International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism on young adults showed that chocolate milk is twice as effective as commercial sports drinks to refuel exhausted muscles.
• Whey Protein Packs Energy — Whey protein is a high-quality protein found naturally in dairy foods, and it provides the protein your body can best use to help promote better health. It helps you get the most out of your workout by speeding muscle recovery after exercise and helping build and maintain lean muscle.
