Half and Half vs. Skim Milk

This morning while looking through the fridge I confused some half and half for milk. Right before pouring the stuff into my coffee I noticed the mistake and took a quick look at the back of the carton. 40 calories. Not bad, I thought, quickly comparing it to the 80 calories in a cup of skim milk. Then of course my brain kicked in I really read the label. Of course I disovered that a serving size of half and half is 2 tablespoons. One cup of the half and half carries 320 calories.

FIWers try to stick with the skim milk in your coffee. Or at least read the labels.
