Totally Milkin' It

Hello! How was the weekend? Too short as always. Again I woke up today thinking it was Sunday....WHATS WRONG WITH ME? The hubs alarm actually went off at 4:45am and I told him to shut it off, haha. He said...."Buts its Monday, we gotta get up and go." Bugger!

Anyway, this weekend was HOT HOT HOT and HUMID HUMID HUMID. I actually cut my long run 2 miles short outside and finished it up inside in the gym. Just couldn't lose any more sweat....eek! Luckily, the good people at ATHLETES HONEY MILK sent us a variety pack of their recovery drink. I took the Honey Flavor with me to the gym for post run and I am SO SO SO GLAD I did! Great simple ingredients that are gluten free and lactose free and full of protein. You guys have to check them out....that's if you can handle dairy. I can only handle goats milk dairy and lactose free cottage cheese but the HONEY Milk didn't upset my stomach at all , it was actually nice on my stomach....definitely a bonus!


James and I both loved all the flavors but Coffee Light was kinda my favorite. It tasted like a Starbucks latte....AWESOME! James loved the Vanilla. He such a vanilla guy! Simple good taste.


We're going to continue to use ATHLETES HONEY MILK for our post workout "quick fix" recovery this week. I'll let you know how the training/reovery goes! Lots of swimming, cycling, outdoor conditioning and strength, running, etc. Excited!

See....we're ready to run! Kswiss Style of course!

So ya wanna know more? Here a little info about HONEY MILK.

Is HoneyMilk right for you?
The short answer is: Yes. It’s right for everybody. Milk is an incredible source of protein, containing vitamins and nutrients that are essential to everyone’s dietary needs, but even more so to athletes. Honey is a great natural source of carbohydrates known for boosting performance, increasing endurance and reducing muscle fatigue.We take the lactose out, but leave all the good stuff in. So you end up with a well-rounded recovery drink / meal replacement that’s just right for whatever kind of superstar you are. Or want to be.

The light version sounds much more my kind of drink, a LOT less sugar! I loooove Muscle Milk, it tastes so good. I wonder if this tastes like it? I really like the all natural ingredients in the Honey Milk though.

Hmmm i have never heard of honey milk - but it looks interesting! My normal recovery drink is water (or a little gatorade if I have been racing...)kinda boring really!

You guys look so cute together! Is dairy good to have after a workout?

Sounds like a great recovery drink. Anything that tastes like Starbucks is a winner in my book

Abby said...

you had me at: "Tastes like Starbucks Latte".

Must try.

You guys are cute rockin' your K Swiss apparrel!!

I'm not sure I've seen honey milk. I need to check that out. I totally hear you on the HOT. Gotta love the South right????

Maggie said...

Honey Milk sounds awesome, I wish I could handle dairy. (I'm finding it's not just the lactose I have "issues" with.) In fact, my recovery drink used to be a cold glass of organic 1% milk over ice. Perfect balance of protein, sugars, and minerals. But these days, it's coconut water! Maybe I should add some Bovril or Marmite? HA!!!!

Thank you, Lindsay.

For those of you who like Muscle Milk, HoneyMilk tastes much better, is made from REAL MILK, does not contain heavy metals, and only has 8 ingredients!!!

Please take advantage of the Buy One Case Get One Free discount that Lindsay recently posted and let us know what you think of our Natural Recovery Drink.
