An Alternative to Milk
by: Nadia (website author)

Thank you Surbhi Kanur for your contribution to our site! You have shared some great information that I am sure many will find helpful

With regards to milk; because much of the milk today in our modern world is pasteurized, has other things added to it (from the cow's diet and any antibiotics/hormones they are given) and may come from cows that unfortunately may not be living a happy life ... many of our readers may choose to avoid this as it can be quite inflammatory in the body.

A great alternative would be to use coconut milk, almond milk or any other well made nut/seed milk.
