As surprising as it may seem, considering I'm a dietitian and nutrition editor of EatingWell Magazine, my preferred variety of milk is the chocolate kind, especially after a workout. It delivers the mix of protein and carbohydrate our bodies need to recover energy supplies after an intense workout.

But at the grocery store, my choices don't just stop at plain versus chocolate milk. There's also fat content to consider and milk labeled organic, RBST-free and lactose-free. And beyond the grocery store, there's the raw milk versus pasteurized milk debate. With so many choices, how do you know which one you should buy? This guide will help you cut through the confusion.
