Goat Milk

When I was 5 years old, my god parents had a small farm. I faintly remember milking the goat and drinking the milk - and that it did not taste good! Warm and unpasteurized, it's no wonder.

Fast forward to Saturday, I bought a quart of goat milk at Whole Foods to see what it was like and hoping that it would taste alright. I was worried it would be too goaty but I figured I could always make ice cream from it if it was. Thankfully it was not!  :)  The goat flavor was really quite slight and only because I was really tasting for it. Woohoo!

The reason for my experimentation? After watching Forks Over Knives, I feel like I ought to be eating more vegetables and beans (which I have been trying to do since I watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead), less bread, rice, and pasta carbs, less meat and less dairy for a better chance at good health. And be less likely to "turn on" cancer cells. According to many online articles, Goat's milk it supposed to be lower in casein protein and easier to digest than cow's milk.

I'm not saying it's a cure all but I think flavor-wise, although not like cow's milk, it's something worth trying.

Variety is the spice of life and all that!  :)
