To drink milk or not to drink milk? That is the question!
« on: December 31, 2010, 06:49:14 AM »
3 of my children are big milk drinkers.  (they love chocolate milk!)  I buy the regular Homo/Past milk at the store, because it's cheap (we are poor).  I could get raw milk in my area, but it is just so dang expensive (1/2 gallon raw milk costs about 3-4 times as much as full gallon of H/P milk), and we just can't afford it.  So, regular H/P milk is what we/they consume.

I'd like to wean my family off of H/P milk, but how? 

Is it better to drink some milk, even if it's H/P?  Or is it better to drink no milk at all, if you can't get raw milk?

And what about cooking with milk?  Is H/P milk ok to use, or are their better/healthier substitutes, that cost about the same?

Thanks for the link, and I know I've looked at that thread a while back, probably 2 or 3 years ago.  I can't remember what all was in it....and goodness, it's 18 pages! 

I already know about the benefits of raw milk and I know I can get it in my area. 

I guess the main thing I want to know is:  If you can't get raw milk, is it better to drink H/P milk, or is it better to drink no milk at all?  Does anyone know if that question is addressed somewhere in those 18 pages of the above referenced thread?  I really don't have time to read/skim 18 pages!

OK, I just skimmed the thread. Yes, those questions are addressed from every angle....several times over.  :) In order to make a good decision you will have to read it for yourself, however pages 10-12 and also the last page should answer the basic question for you. There's so much more to the decision than homogenization and pasteurization.

It is better to drink NO milk at all.

Thank you for those links, HB!

I am going to try to wean my kids off of cow's milk (unless I can afford raw milk in the future).....any tips for doing this without wails of protest?  And what to replace with?  Or do not worry about replacing?

I hear ya! I tried for a long time to switch to a non-milk substance. Almond milk works pretty good. Esp as chocolate almond milk. But, you don't want too much of that either. You could switch between hemp, almond and raw milk to cover all bases. JUST STAY AWAY FROM SOY!

I just went to raw milk and I will not look back. I FEEL AWESOME!

I switched to almond milk 2 years ago. My stomach hurts something awful if I drink regular milk.
