Hi Andy,
I’ve ben reading a lot about how cow milk is bad for or body’s and that we should go for almond and soya milk.
What is your approach about cow milk? is there really something wrong about it? just curious as I’m not at all in the nutrition studies and I don’t know what to think or follow anymore…
Many thanks :-)
Lorena

Hello Lorena! I have to ask you a few questions, who told you this? What are their sources? What is their background/education? Anyone can say anything.

Personally I love milk, but I am lactose intolerant so I can only have small amounts here and there. Milk is a great source of calcium, potassium, Vitamin D and protein. Milk does have a high fat content, but that’s easily fixed with low fat milk or 1%/2%. I usually opt for the 2% because I don’t like completely watered down milk. I do love almond milk and that has been a good substitute, however they isn’t as much protein or calcium (unless fortified) as milk. Being lactose intolerant, I still try to eat daily product such as greek yogurt and cheese, but in small amounts.

Anytime someone makes a nutrition claim remember to ask their background, sources, and always do your own research!

Hope that helps! xoxo Andy
