What kind of milk do you drink?
Posted 19 January 2008 - 03:45 PM
I use vanilla flavored soy milk for my coffee & any cereal I eat. I've been using soy milk for like 10 years. However, I am also a cheese freak! Isn't that weird?

I never drink milk straight - yuck! But when I do use it for cooking and such I use Horizon's Organic 2% Cow's Milk.
My parents used to make me drink milk as a kid but as I grew up my Dad became a health nazi, always up to date on the latest nutrition info. In HS he told me the story about how we are the only mammal that drinks another mammal's milk. When I would tell other ppl this they would argue that cats do too. BUT, we give it to them!!!
The hormones in milk today are horrible. My neice matured way early and had boobs by the age of 9 and the doctors said it was due to the hormones in milk. She's 13 now and looks like she's 17. It's really getting crazy.
I have actually heard some bad things about soy lately, which surprised me. I'll have to dig up that info... I know my BFF was really bummed when she found that out cause she's lactose intolerant and drinks soy milk every day.

I stopped drinking a glass of milk regularly but am trying to get back in it. I heard that it helps with losing weight?
Soy milk on its own is a little too sweet for me. Is the rice milk really sweet?

I just don't enjoy it with cereal anymore.
Soy milk has never really done it for me, but I've started getting into rice milk. It kind of tastes like horchata so I like it. I've not really looked into the research on rice vs. soy but I think I will.
What are your preferences and why?

But I LOVE milk. And Choclate milk in particular is a vice of mine. LIke I would have to really sit and think about it if someone said I had to give up either choc. milk or alcohol...I'd need like a day to figure it out! lol! It's seriously that bad. I only buy organic milk (1%) 'cause I really hate all the hormones and everything they put in the cows. I also buy organic butter...that being said, I usually just buy regular cheese since it's more available and a little less expensive... good cheese can get pricey sometimes! lol!
I have heard that too many soy products are bad for you. I can't remember all the statistics off hand...but I've come across that in several of the articles I've read regarding what to eat/avoid while pregnant and while TTC. So I do try to limit some of that stuff and only eat my fave soy-based stuff...edemame etc. I do however like soy milk in some of my hot beverages...like certain coffees and chai tea. And the 8th Continent Choc Soy milk is SOooooo good, IMO. I do prefer rice milk for cereal...it's lighter to me...sometimes the soy milk is kinda heavy tasting to me.
All that being said, I am happy with my 1% organic milk and cereal in the morning...I don't see that changing. :-)
