to much soy makes me feel sick! for really and mainly it's in the form of soy milk, tofu seems to be ok. while it is proven that soy lowers cholesterol, and helps protect agents breast and prostate cancer there are new studies showing some down sides. the down side is that soy has isoflavones—plant compounds that mimic estrogen. that can cause some serious reproductive problems in women when over consumed. all i know is that i can't drink to much of it due to the heart burn... my body is trying to tell me something.
so the alternatives?
rice milk- im not a fan it's way to watery
hemp milk- last time i bought it k asked me why his coffee tasted like fish
coconut milk- i do not like most store bought coconut milk and it is way to thick
almond milk- where is i am a fan of almond milk the dill pickle food co-op only sells low fat organic almond milk. i believe they have non low fat but it's not organic. last time i bough low fat i kept asking k why everything tasted so bad not realizing it was low fat.
well how hard can it be to make almond milk anyways?
surprisingly very easy.
i made my own using
1/2 cup raw almonds
3 cups water
1/4 t spoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey
i put it all in a blender and in a few min i had almond milk.
and it tasted just the way i like it
and it was cheap!
and now it's in my fridge
