July 25th, 2007 Eating

I have dealt with the conflict between what I like to eat and the way I ‘should’ eat for most of my life.  My first diet was when I was 14 – that was to lose weight – but the conflict has never stopped.  Now I know a lot more and I really want to eat the way I should eat.  And I’m getting better at choosing.  Last night I made a big choice –

I finally got it about milk.  Do you know we’re the only species that drinks another species’ milk?  And pasteurization kills whatever value it may have – We kill all the beneficial bacteria – we cook the milk before we store it.  Why?  Because it will stay around longer to be sold.  I’ve used goat milk for 30+ years because its formulation is very close to breast milk – but it’s still pasteurized.

What’s worse is that I use it in coffee.  The combination of milk and coffee produces something that’s neither when it goes through the body – It ends up as a kind of sludge – particularly hard to digest – adds weight, slows metabolism, …

So as of today – no more milk
