    If your wife has bought 2% milk for a recipe, and you haven’t consumed cow juice in any great amount for a damn long time (years and years) , don’t just pour a bunch on your Cheerios (with a little honey) and assume everything will be alright.

    Oy.

    Vey.

    Like a mule kicking in his stall, except “his stall” is my gut.

    I admit, after every ounce of liquid poured out of my body , I felt much better but prior to that - the milk was Ali, and my belly was Chuck Wepner’s face...

    I have no opinion about milk, almond or otherwise, but when somebody throws down a sweet Chuck Wepner reference like that they've gotta get props.

    Well done!

    It takes a LOT of water to produce an almond. They are water intense crops. There. I said it. Someone had to. Now... thread about the old growth Tele I just bought is coming. Tomorrow. We now return you to our regularly scheduled milk thread...

    An unsweetened soymilk and Cheerios kind of guy here for many years (summer months only). I'll buy a little container of milk for omelettes, but that is about it for me. Nevertheless, thank you for the warning.

    You probably needed a good flushing anyway.;):lol:

    Cow milk is a strange food.....

    I haven't had a drop in decades....

    I'm digging all these new "boutique" milks we get! I tried some wild walnut milk from Spain! It was great on oatmeal!

    I feel your pain! I don't recall exactly when, maybe in my early 20s, that I became lactose intolerant. I can eat cheese, yogurt, half and half in my coffee, but a glass of milk or bowl of cereal with cow milk is NOT fun. And no ice cream, frozen yogurt is ok.
    I'll stick to almond milk or other non dairy alternatives on the rare occasion that I crave a bowl of cereal.

    It's not the milk. Cheerios should be consumed dry with a fine helping of rich chocolate Ovaltine (no liquids). I eat this each morning for the last 63 years.

    I drank whole milk in large quantities from a very young age...Until about age 17.

    After that, any dairy consumption was playing Russian roulette.


    I still play the game, but only if I'm 99% sure I'll be at home, with nowhere to be for the next 5 hours.

    Milk is for babies ( baby cows ). I was almost 30 when I discovered that I no longer could drink milk. Now I buy the Lactaid brand of milk, it has the lactose removed. Lactaid also has other dairy products; yogurt, sour cream, Ice cream, etc. All good stuff

    I've got a toddler. I'm amazed at how fast his sippy cups go from "freshly poured" to "clump of cheese"... like 6-8 hours in some cases. if milk does that in a climate controlled room... what the hell is it doing in our stomachs?!

    between that and the FDA allowing 750 million pus cells per liter... I don't touch that stuff

    I drink milk or chocolate milk or have a milk shake every day. I also eat butter, no artificial substitutes. Cook with a lot of heavy cream. Have never had an issue of any kind. The only non-dairy milks I have any thing to do with are coconut milk for some cooking and coconut cream for tropical drinks.

    I don't drink any type of milk, but am pretty sure that you can't milk an almond. I guess it wouldn't sell so well if they called it "nut juice".

    Probably better than you think in some locations.

    I drink a good sized glass of cold 2% milk every morning with my breakfast and it's never bothered me in all my years.To me breakfast isn't breakfast without a cold glass of milk.

    I know as of late there's been lots of anti-milk campaigns.
    I guess not drinking milk is ok, as long as you're eating plenty of chalk

    It takes 15 gallons of water to produce 6 almonds and 17 gallons to produce a single avocado. Not sure how many almonds it takes to make a gallon of almond juice but I think it is alot!
