    Jamy,

    i used to be vegan and vegetarian for 15 years. i now eat fish, chicken, turkey, bison and lean beef like 2 or 3 times a year - but only if organic, no antibiotic, growth hormone, etc...

    with that being said, i have read all the material regarding cow's milk and i i am right with Heidi - cow's milk freaks me out!!!

    as far a soy milk, i have found that the taste and texture varies substantially from brand to brand.

    the only one i like is Vitasoy Creamy Original (but NOT the lite!) - it is really good! and for chocolate soymilk - Silk chocolate is the best.

    as for ricemilk - my FI uses that for his cereal and he loves Rice Dream Original Enriched. he says the vanilla is too sweet.

    for cooking i use a soy creamer product from Silk -it has a similar consistency to half and half.

    Alyssa :)

      I wonder if I try plain soy milk in my cereal if it might cover the taste a little.

        maybe I can get hailey to drink the chocolate soy milk, I think "sillk" is the one I've tried.

            Jilly the chocolate soy does sound good, she probably won't know the difference. Hey, maybe I can trick my husband that way? LOL

              yeah, I'm thinking all I have to say is "chocolate milk" and she'll be all over it, hopefully she won't take one sip and say, "what is this??"

              Although the kids still get regular cows milk at school, so I guess changing to soy at home would at least be a step in the right direction.

                I use the same. LOVE it. Plus it lasts a lot longer than half & half; so does soy milk. Takes a while before it 'goes bad'

                  i have to try this soy creamer...if I have left over half and half from baking or parties...i'll put it in my cereal . But usually I drink Westsoy organix unsweetened soymilf. 1 cup has only 1 g net carbs, 1 g sugar, 4 g fiber, and 9 g proteirn!

                    I drink skim. Never tried soy or rice milk. I hate whole and 2%, tastes think to me. grosses me out.
