OK, this post is for those of you who are interested in Organics and Natural foods. The attached is strictly my opinion, based on my personal experience.
I have been off of cows milk now for approximately 1 year. I was having medical issues with muscle pains and cramps. I don't know why this switch made a difference, but it did. I was having to drink quite a bit of milk, because of the quantities of medicine I had to swallow. I still take quite a few medications, however with the switch from cow's milk, I feel better. I want to share with you what I found as a substitute for cows milk. I tried the lactose free milks and the rice milks, but I did not like them.
My family is now drinking Light Silk Soymilk in both Vanilla and Chocolate. The taste is good (OK, not as thick or rich as cows milk, but you get used to it) and it delivers calcium for your bones, 11 essential vitamins and minerals, anti-oxidants, ALA omega 3's and soy proteins. Silk is made from soybeans that are not genetically engineered. I buy ours from Wholefoods and Krogers.
I wanted to share this information,because I believe it has made such a difference in the way I feel.
Luv to All,
