What do you have with your Wheaties? Moo Milk? or Soy Milk?
I start almost every morning with Kashi GoLean just because as a dry cereal, it has a crazy protein content of 13g (and 10g fiber - it's a great cereal). I mix in another 10g of whey protein and some fruit, and top off with a cup of soy milk (adds 7g protein) for a decent 30g of protein for breakfast. Now, after doing more research and being more body-conscious about what I'm actually eating, I'm debating switching back to milk (it does a body good - pass it on), reluctantly.
I like soy milk because of the long shelf life. With the cost of milk these days, I can get a half gallon of soy milk for about $1.99 shopping smart and buying, say in Aug, you can find expiration dates in early October. Typically, you get 6-7g of protein in a cup. Soy also has protective isoflavones. On the negative side, soy has phyto(plant-based) estrogens. No one agrees on whether or not it may be harmful.
Milk on the other hand, doesn't last quite as long and can cost just as much or more than the soy. If you don't drink it up, you wasted your cash. It can also has fat in it. (I would go for the skim). And, if you aren't watching where the milk came from, you could be injesting whatever hormones they gave the cows. However, it's a better protein. Typically, you may see 3-4g of protein in a cup.
