Best Non Dairy Milk – What I Look For & Which Is My Favorite

Go to http://www.healthyeatingstartshere.com/nutrition/best-non-dairy-milk for the full article.

It used to be hard to find the best non dairy milk, because there wasn’t much of a market for it – people just weren’t interested. Because of the growing awareness of dairy as an allergen (and its environmental, ethical and health issues), the demand for non dairy milks is growing.

    It’s really amazing …
    It’s really amazing the new popularity among “regular people” of non-dairy milks, even at WalMart, lol. There’s a flax milk now which I like a lot, they’re all pretty great except when loaded with oil & sugar like you say. The dairy industry is fighting back with some weird commercials,? only making themselves more strange and cruel. I do like soymilk, thanks for not being one of those anti-soy alarmists…said campaign begun by vested interests.

    wow, I haven’t seen hazelnut milk yet! sounds yummy 🙂 nut/seed butter in water can thicken,? but if they’re roasted before grinding it might add a bit too much flavor… let me know how it goes!

    seems to be looking …
    seems to be looking at small points on specific brands – I agree that I’d prefer to get nutrients from whole foods and/or high quality supplements, but in the big scheme of things I don’t think it’s a big enough problem to be scared of. These kinds of vitamins are added to dairy milks as well, so it’s not unique to plant based milks. And if you really want to? avoid those things, you can always make your own at home 🙂

    I agree on the …
    I agree on the dangers of genetic modification – I didn’t get into it in this video because I wanted to? keep it to more of the general positive aspects of non dairy milks over animal dairy. Also agree on organic – good, but not necessarily total protection – especially with crops that can cross-pollinate and are grown in huge monocrops

    Interesting comment …
    Interesting comment; as a baby, I had mom’s milk which according to her was always available till I was weaned; after that, I never liked any other kind of milk. Check with your mom, how you behaved with her mammary glands – could be insightful.

    I do like cows and other mammals so leave them alone. I worked in farms for many years and? I feel animals suffer in human care. Gr8 tips Heather, <3

    have you ever tried …
    have you ever tried banana milk? I never did till I used a Mary McDougall recipe, just one banana blended till smooth with 1 cup water *give or take depending on how thick you want it* I LOVE this bc we ALWAYS have bananas on hand, it tastes AMAZING with oats and you can make just SOME and not always have some other kind of milk on hand! The only downside is you can’t use it in savory recipes? :-/

    hazelnut milk is my absolute favorite…

    would it work to mix like a teaspoon of a nut or? seed butter in your water when you make your hot coco? … a shake of cinnamon on top. going to go try that now.

    Oh! And don’t throw away the stuff from the strainer either! It’s perfectly good for “cheese”cake? crust, or maybe you can use it in cookies or anything else you bake. It’s great stuff, shouldn’t go to waste.

    I’ve only tried …
    I’ve only tried almond milk I made myself once – soak raw almonds overnight, rinse and blend with water, strain and serve. Honestly, it tasted BETTER than any dairy milk I ever tried – quite sweet so no need for sugar, stevia or anything. My parents were shocked when they tried it, they couldn’t believe it was for real. Impressed them a lot 😀 I’m sure coconut would taste the best but I haven’t had the chance to? find any in my country… I’ll probably do it myself from scratch – always the best

    (continued) This is …
    (continued) This is no joke. There is no real way of knowing what modified foods are safe and the more a food has been modified the greater the potential for? altering it’s RNA. I’ve been wondering if the soy milk I used to use uses a modified seed because just because it says organic on the label doesn’t mean they didn’t use modified seeds. They word organic was legally twisted to mean the methods which were used to grow the crop not to the stock from which the seed came…

    Women may have …
    Women may have estrogen issues with soy but the real problem I have with soy is it’s the second highest modified food and these foods are being linked to serious health issues. You? should look into the TON of research generated.

    They’re freaking over wheat in Australia… Go to: greenmedinfo(dot)com/ and look at “GM Wheat May Damage Human Genetics Permanently”. There’s an article from India where it’s agricultural minister stated they are removing all modified foods from farm production.

    agreed – but I also …
    agreed – but I also hate the term ‘mylk’, which just sounds like a wannabe. In my mind, I’ve re-defined milk to just be ‘creamy white liquid’, with its origin defined by the type of milk (i.e. almond, soy, cow). Because I don’t see a new word coming along to replace milk for plant sources… too ingrained by now?

    Thanks for the …
    Thanks for the video, Heather! What’s your take on the article posted on The? Healthy Home Economist’s website titled “Coconut and Almond Milk in Cartons Not a Healthy Buy”? It seems somewhat like scare tactics, but it is backed up by research… It’s hard to know which information to trust.

    if you’re making your own soy yogurt, I bet it’s awesome!!? the bacterial cultures will ferment the sugars that cause gas/digestive problems 🙂

    I find it interesting that we refer to these plant-based mixtures as “milks.” As if a? mock-mammary secretion sounded tasty or something?

    I really like hemp milk, but for something that comes close? to the taste of cow’s milk, I find the Whole Foods 365 brand of unsweetened almond milk to be the best I’ve found so far.

    Just to add to the …
    Just to add to the list of milks.
    sunflower milk, flax milk, hazelnut milk.
    Lots of great? options.
    I personally want it to be organic and NOT have any added vitamins, like vit d and calcium. I get my nutrients from my food in its natural form. Hard to find milks with no added nutrients, but they are out there.
