MILK: Which one REALLY does a body good?
For years I have heard many controversies in regards to milk. Cow's milk, cashew milk, almond milk, coconut milk so many to choose from. How do you know which one is right for you?
DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE NO NON-FAT COWS ON THE PLANET? Raw cow's milk on the other hand is in it's true created state. It has all the nutrients milk is supposed to have in it and all the fat! The cow's actually eat grass which is what they are supposed to eat. If you are lactose intolerant, most likely you won't be if you drink raw milk. If you really want health drink milk the way it was truly intended to be; in a pure state.
Question: Do I personally drink raw milk?
Answer: Very rarely. Since I am not a baby calf, which is actually what cow's milk was intended for, I only have some raw cow's milk on rare occasions.
Cashew milk and almond milk
These 2 types of milk are one of my go to choices. My favorite is cashew milk. There is no strong overpowering flavor to cashew milk. Cashews are known to have one of the highest protein amounts of all nuts.
Almost daily I make my own cashew milk. Through major procrastination I had put it off "thinking" it would be to tedious to make. To my surprise it is super simple.
Cashew milk recipe

- Place cashews in a bowl. Cover with water and let sit at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain and rinse the
- soaked cashews. Put cashews in blender with 1 cup of water. Blend until it looks like milk. Add 1 more
- cup of water, and blend again.
I am a big fan of coconut milk. I use it in smoothies, put it in my coffee and make salad dressing with it. It contains Vitamins C, E and many B vitamins are abundant in coconut milk. Vitamins C and E help to boost the immune system, and B vitamins are responsible for providing energy to the cells. Coconut milk is also rich in magnesium, potassium, phosphorous and iron. Magnesium is responsible for many biochemical functions in the body, including regulating the heart’s rhythm and supporting the function of nerve cells. Potassium maintains the tissues of the heart, kidneys, brain and muscles. Phosphorus keeps teeth and bones strong, and iron creates red blood cells and carries oxygen throughout your body.
