Use this not that – Part 4 – Almond Milk versus Milk
Posted Sep 11 2009 2:10pm
Today marks the last day of the Use this Not that series. I have enjoyed sharing this information with you, I hope you have found it helpful.
Today we’ll talk about milk. Milk is much more dangerous to our health then we are being told. Today I’d like to suggest that you either lower your milk consumption or stop drinking it if at all possible. There are some healthy alternatives like almond milk.
Use This: Almond Milk Almond milk is so much better for you then milk, especially raw almonds. Almond milk looks practically the same as milk and to me, taste even better. Almonds are full of nutrition like Protein, Vitamin A and E, Niacin, Folate as well as Minerals: Magnesium, Calcium, Iron and so much more.
Almond milk Recipe
1 cup of raw almonds
3 cup of water
1/2-1 cup of dates (Depends on how sweet you like your milk)
You will need a cheesecloth
Directions: Place the almonds and water in a blender. Blend until almonds are broken down. Take some cheesecloth, put in a bowl. Pour the almond milk in the cheesecloth. The purpose of doing this is to remove the almond pulp from the drink this way you have almond milk without almonds pieces. Next, add the almond milk back to the blender, add your dates and blend. You drink is complete, you may drink or store in the refrigerator.
You can add flavor to your almond milk by adding banana’s, Strawberries or any other fruit you like.
Always soak your almonds for at least 24/48. Soaking your almonds will make it much more nutritious and easier for your body to digest.
Not This: Milk Everyday we are told how great milk is for us. We are told that milk is needed to build healthy bones because it is high in protein and calcium. Plant based foods are high in protein and calcium like, leafy greens, Nuts and seeds. There is no need for cows milk. I strongly believe that cow’s milk is made for a baby cow not a human being. It just make sense.
Milk has been known to cause type 1 diabetes in children. It is also known to cause ones body to build up mucus which eventually lead to many health related problems. Since I am not an expert on the subject of milk, I thought I’d include a video that explains in why you REALLY want to eliminate milk from your diet.
Please love yourself enough to research what you are putting in your mouth. Most people do not want to hear that milk is bad for them.
I know for a fact once I removed milk from my diet my health started to improve in ways I never thought it would. I’ve even had times where I allowed dairy products back in my diet and instantly noticed a difference in how it made me feel. I felt clogged up and instantly felt like a cold was coming on. You may not agree with me but please do your research. The FDA is out to make money they don’t care about you as much as you think they do.
