Got Nut Milk?

Coming up in Texas it was programmed into us that unless we drink cow’s milk, we will not grow tall, our teeth would crack and fall out, and our bones would all break. Everyone I was ever exposed to as a child believed the same thing and drank copious vitamin D whole milk and ate sliced American cheese as well as bits off of the monster block of Velveeta drying out in the fridge.

The only other option was chocolate milk or buttermilk, as this was before the low-fat craze. Almost anytime I was offered milk, or it was an option with a meal I drank it, although as I became an adult, I became a fan of diet sodas and backed off of drinking dairy milk. I first learned how milk would create mucus in one’s throat and I was to avoid it before going on the air. I started as a DJ at 16 and was told to stick with water or warm tea before and during my on-air slot.

It wasn’t until just a few years ago I learned of soy milk and then almond, hemp, oat, rice, cashew, etc. milk all without keeping an animal lactating its entire life and then to slaughter. Thanks for your lifetime of service and now you get to die. No other animal on the planet drinks another’s milk. Bovine milk is naturally formulated to add hundreds of pounds to a calf in a few months time.

Today almond milk makes up sixty percent of all non-dairy milk sales and almost five percent of all milk sales. Seems as far back as medieval times almond milk was popular as it did not require cold storage and would outlast dairy milk.

Today most store-bought non-dairy milk are vitamin D fortified. One may also consider supplements and make sure K2 is taken with the D to ensure calcium does not end up in the arteries. Proper exposure to the sunshine and some mushrooms also bring D into us. Calcium in sufficient quantities can are in the following foods and dozens of others including sesame seeds, spinach, collards, backstrap molasses, kelp, tahini, broccoli, swiss chard, kale, brazil nuts, celery, almonds, papaya, flax seeds, and oranges.

Plant-based milk requires a simple process of soaking the nuts or other plant matter and then blending it and straining out all the moisture which is called milk. Peruse the internet to find plenty of recipes for every kind of plant-milk possible. They can be sweetened by simply adding a pitted date or three or flavored as you desire by adding a drop of vanilla or cacao and maple syrup.

For your health, for the animals, and for the flavor, try one or three. Do avoid buying the ones with Carrageenan, as it is a known carcinogen once in the human stomach. Note that some are sweetened, and others are not, also some are flavored, and I prefer unsweetened and unflavored.

If you have not seen Forks over Knives, it would be worth your time to learn why reducing or removing animal proteins from one’s diet, based on results, is a wise thing to do for overall health and longevity.

Cultural Conditioning for Profits

As we grow up, we begin to believe all that we are taught as the way things are and of course that they are all the facts we need to know, and they, of course, are the right way to see things. The trouble is that it is our reality that often precludes any real investigation into facts that may support other ways of seeing things.

Take for example dairy milk. Kids are taught that milk is required for strong bones and to avoid osteoporosis etc. and this is in no way the truth. This is supported by the lies perpetuated by the government’s food pyramid that came out in the 1970’s that was created originally in Sweden.

We no more need dairy in our diets than an extra hole in the head. From commercials to milk cartons and a full-on brainwashing takes places in Americas schools within the cafeterias to promote further this outdated unhealthy scam that is just bovine growth juice. They tout it as everything it is not and yes plants have plenty of calcium.

Special interest groups became involved in creating Americas food pyramid, and it worked to push further their products and increase sales. In 1992, dairy ended up with its section on Americas food pyramid since the dairy council paid for it. The wheat growers were able to have them suggest 6-11 servings a day of their needless grains. This is the best the USDA could do, and it is no wonder why we doubt the legitimacy of anything our government or its agencies have to say.

The same thing goes for consuming animal flesh or trusting allopathic doctors, etc. While I grew up attending a Methodist church and eating burgers, some other kid born elsewhere was going to a Temple and raised as a vegetarian. His world was normal to him and mine to me, all at the same time.

To live in the question is a good thing and if answers are sought, they shall be found. Once we get over having to have our way of thinking be the only way and the right way, we open ourselves to more truths. There are beliefs I have held my entire life that disappeared once I learned other truths and some that will likely never change. And I work to remain open to learning from any source.

Defined as the social process in which authority figures, peers, and the media define our cultural values, beliefs, ethical system, and ultimately how we see ourselves. Cultural conditioning also has folks believe that solutions for cancer don’t exist. However they do and in various non-toxic forms. I cover many of them in my book Nutritional Truths.

Next week is the one year anniversary of publishing Nutritional Truths, and we will be giving away a few copies of the audio version through Audible. It will all be explained next week thanks for reading this and enjoy your weekend. Share as you wish and Be Well!
