Tesco Skimmed Milk
Advantages: Less calories, thirst quenching to drink
I used to drink semi-skimmed milk until I started going to Weight Watchers a few years ago and switched to skimmed as it was less points. There is a slight difference, but to be honest I got used to it really quickly and buy it automatically now. Semi-skimmed tastes a bit too thick now and if I'm ever given full fat it tastes awful, practically like cream! Hopefully my waistline and my arteries agree with me that skimmed is best too!
Tesco skimmed milk comes in a variety of sizes to suit every lifestyle, from small 1 pint bottles to huge 4 litre ones, you can also buy it in long life cartons. I generally buy a small 1 pint bottle as I live alone and that's usually enough. At about 50p I think its pretty good value. Skimmed milk works for everything from cereal, to putting in tea and coffee, to cooking and baking and even drinking as it is. Some people find skimmed milk too thin and watery to drink on its own but I think its fine, and is in fact more thirst quenching than fattier types of milk as its less thick and creamy so feels more like a drink than a food.
Tesco milk tends to have a pretty good shelf life, usually when you buy a fresh bottle the best before date will be a week or even more in the future, so there's plenty of time to use it all and no need to waste any. Unfortunately I can't recycle the bottles where I live, but I believe some councils do accept them for recycling, so check before you throw them away!
Summary: Switch to skimmed, you might be pleasantly surprised!
