Don’t be fooled by milks that aren’t really milk.

It’s very trendy right now to make “milk” out of everything but a cow. Almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, the list goes on and on. All of these options are perfectly okay – as long as – you opt for the unsweetened variety. The sweetened versions aren’t terribly different than drinking old school Kool-Aid!

Unless you have a digestive intolerance, don’t be afraid of good ol’ cow’s milk. The smartest nutritionists in the world (the ones doing hardcore research at Harvard and the Institute of Health) typically recommend reduced fat (1%) dairy milk. If it’s good enough for them, then maybe, just maybe it’s good enough for you too.
