National Spouse’s Day is the perfect day to show the special person in your life just how much you care for him or her. So what better way to celebrate this great day by keeping your loved one healthy. It’s easy! Put your New Year’s resolution to good use and incorporate more protein into his or her diet. Here are a few simple ideas I’d like to share:
- Swap out soda for Hiland Dairy Milk. It boasts 8 grams of protein per 8 ounce glass and does not contain any artificial growth hormones.
- Stock your fridge with Hiland Dairy’s Veggie Ranch Dip, French Onion Dip or spice things up with Jalapeño Fiesta Dip. Grab your favorite veggies or chips and start dipping…you’ll get 1 gram of protein for every 2 tablespoons of dip!
- Cut out heart-shaped cheese slices from Hiland Dairy’s block Cheddar Cheese, Monterey Jack Cheese or Pepperjack Cheese and serve them with crackers to get 7 grams of protein per ounce of cheese.
- Add Hiland Dairy Cottage Cheese to your favorite recipes including lasagna, macaroni and cheese, pizza, quiche and even ice cream! Just a half cup will get you 13-14 grams of protein.
