I hope you have given Hood Calorie Countdown a try because we are LOVING it in our house! I have actually lost 3 pounds since we made the swap.

I did not make any New Year’s resolutions this year because let’s face it, I usually don’t keep them. I did, however, make some goals for 2018. Eating better, healthier, more nutritious foods is one of my goals. Calorie Countdown gave me just enough of a kick to get on track this year. The best part is that it tastes so good that I don’t even notice the difference.

Hood Calorie Countdown products are readily available at Walmart and other local retailers. So head over to Walmart to pick up some if you haven’t already.

We have Hood Calorie Countdown in our cereal and oatmeal for breakfast, and I even use it in my coffee. I love putting it in smoothies to help get some extra dairy in my kids’ diet. I have also found that it is great in a post-workout protein shake. Protein shakes are usually made with water and I can barely even swallow them because they taste so bad. Using Calorie Countdown adds great flavor and creaminess with only a few extra calories.

In just 1 cup of Calorie Countdown, you get 25% of your Daily Value for calcium and 15% for Vitamin D (based on a 2,000 calorie diet). I feel great about incorporating this milky smooth dairy beverage into our diet because it has 42% fewer calories, 75% less sugar, and 67% fewer carbohydrates than milk.

Hood Calorie Countdown is so creamy that it makes this Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal perfect and delicious!
