Recently I have been trying to wean myself off dairy and it has been no easy task! However, I was tired of the feeling I would get after eating cereal, ice cream or cheese and knew it was a category to potentially kick from my diet, or at least actively limit. I won’t be hard core but will try to do with less.
Naturally I started experimenting with different milks because I needed milk for my lattes! I mean, what would A Latte Lipstick be without it’s latte?!
Soy milk seemed to fit in nicely and I really liked the taste. Soy has benefits like being low fat, and lowering your cholesterol. However, I begrudgingly came to find the disadvantages. Soy really messes with your hormones and doesn’t supply much calcium in compared to regular milk.
Almond milk is rich in potassium, lowers blood cholesterol, and provides many nutrients for our entire body. However, if you are at risk of low thyroid, steer clear of almond milk. Almond milk is also usually full of added sugar, so check out the almond milk that you purchase.
Moving onto coconut milk. Coconut milk is high in fatty acids. Studies show that coconut milk aids in weight loss, improves immune function, reduces heart disease and is great for your hair and skin! However I just can’t get into the taste.
To Not Drink:
Silk uses neurotoxic chemicals in their milk, I guess it’s time to say goodbye.
Do you like almond/soy/regular/coconut milk best?
