Today, you can find many alternatives for animal milk, yogurt, and other dairy products in the supermarkets. The number of people drinking and using them is rising, so there are a lot more options out there than there used to be.
Regular milk has a lot of potential negative effects on your body- including leeching calcium from your bones (yes- this is true!), causing inflammation in your body, and causing digestive problems because 75% of the world’s population is genetically unable to digest milk.
Even if you don’t feel the negative effects from drinking regular milk, we encourage you to give some of these other options a try.
1. Almond milk - light and tasty; it also contains a lot of vitamins such as E and B, magnesium, calcium, iron, even healthy fats!
2. Coconut milk - thick with subtle coconut flavour and high in healthy saturated fats.
3. Rice milk - low in fat, neutral, easy to digest.
4. Soy milk - great all day substitute and alternative to cows milk for your coffee/tea etc.
Since people have different tastes, I would recommend you experiment with a couple of different options to see what you like the best! Just make sure whichever option you choose is not loaded with sugar or other strange ingredients. Remember- the fewer the ingredients the better!
