I dont know about you but I’ve really enjoyed the last few weeks of sharing these posts about the great commercials of Milk Verse… Who knows maybe they’ll make it into a web game ala mortal kombat style. But let’s bring it back to the basics…
Since breakfast is a super important time of day to enjoy protein (and get that brain working) – check out these awesome Protein Fight Club recipes found on TheBreakfastProject.com – here’s my pick.

Every time I see these Milk Verse commercials I laugh… my son really cracks up – so I have another good one to share this week…
I also wanted to let you know about this great giveaway that Milk is running where you could win free milk… if you drink a lot of milk you know how quickly that adds up so this is a great giveaway you can enter here http://thebreakfastproject.com/proteinfightclub
My son really laughs at this one mainly because as he says you cant put eggs in a cup thats just silly.
Make sure you see last weeks post were we talk about how we got involved with Milk too.
Milk does a body good its a phrase I was raised on… and I think my wife too from the amount of milk we down in our house. A little while back I was asked to attend the kick off of a new ad campaign called Protein Fight Club.
I’m certain you’ve seen an ad or two by now. It’s the concept of Milk Vs. <pretty much anything> and its LOLable. At that event I was able to interview WWE superstar Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
By far my fav is Milk Vs. Orange juice – just makes me want to try this challenge out on my 5 year old and film his reaction. itwould be classic his head would exploded I’m sure.
Over the next few weeks you’ll see a few of these protein milk post as part of a sponsored program but please note I post because I personally love milk and the thoughts are my own.
