Dairy is a huge part of my diet. I drink milk like crazy, have a yogurt with my lunch every day, and I seem to always be snacking on cheese. We get most of our calcium, which we all know helps to keep bones nice and strong, from dairy products.

With so many quality dairies here in Arizona, there is no excuse to not have at least one glass of milk a day. To get you started on your dairy journey, I made a list of some informative Fill Your Plate articles that you might want to take a look at:
