What an ingenious idea to create a milk substitute with a nut!
But...is almond milk good for you?
Well yes and no and here is why:
Yes because almonds are a healthy fat for us. Almonds are actually fruit.
No because although these fats are healthy for us consuming these in milk form makes it easy to consume too many extra calories and fat.
In our natural state it would take us time to collect and eat these.
Now we can go to the store and buy large ready to eat bags. Too much of a good thing could be a bad thing.
I am guessing that the only reason that someone came up with this replacement drink is because people are starting to realize that cows milk is some of the worst stuff humans can consume.
Let me explain it to you like this:
When was the last time you had the urge to get on your hands and knees and suck on a cows tit to drink her milk?
My guess is never. The mere thought of this is disgusting to us, it may even make you gag.
This is your body telling you not to do this, this is not for you!
But if they put it in a bottle and you buy it at the store, no problem right? Wrong! Cows milk is an absolutely perfect food if you are a calf, but for humans it is a ton of stuff that we just don't need.
Cows milk is designed to turn a 60 lb calf into a 1,000 lb animal in about a year.
What do you think it does to a human body?
Milk is loaded with fat and as Dr. McDougall frequently says "The fat you eat is the fat you wear!"
Have you ever heard of the saying 'taking milk from a baby?'
A cow will not produce milk unless she has given birth to a calf.
If your drinking the milk, what is the calf drinking?
