  • No dairy. Hemp v Soy?

    I haven't drunk milk for some time now. I feel better without it. This is also going to include cream so using that in coffee as per Mark's advice isn't going to work.

    The one thing I'm not prepared to do without at the moment is my morning tea (in a 2 pint mug ). I simply don't function without it and while I can drink black/green/herbal tea quite happily later in the day I really, really have to have my standard cuppa with 'milk' in the morning.

    I have been drinking it quite happily with unsweetened Organic Soya Milk but various bits of reading suggest Soy may not sit too happily with my hormone concerns so I'm thinking of switching to Hemp Milk

    GOOD HEMP Milk - Dairy-free, Soya-free- Source of Omega 3 - Made from Hemp seeds

    It doesn't come up on Fitday when I search Hemp so maybe you don't have it in the US? Or maybe it just thinks I'm trying to find cannabis cakes .

    Any thoughts on how this sits? Given I'm probably only looking at a cup a day should I really not worry about it (80:20 and all that).

    TIA

    I love hemp seeds so I decided to try hemp milk and it was gross tasting. I don't like soy milk either. Have you tried coconut milk?

        I quite like Soy Milk so I'm hoping Hemp Milk won't be a problem? No, I've not tried coconut milk, I'll look into it.

          I'll give it a shot but I really can't imagine it in my morning tea though :-s

            Hemp milk is fine. Just make sure you are balancing your omega 6:3's.

            Why can't you have cow's milk or cream? Are you lactose intolerant or allergic?

                Stop imagining, start doing. It's a tough love day from me, everybody's getting some.
                I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                  I'm drinking it with my tea as I type I do prefer it in coffee, but in black tea it's surprisingly OK...to me, anyway.
                  I also love it with frozen raspberries or any time cream would be used.

                      hemp is okay, it will taste similar to soy.

                      btw, there's very little lactose in 1/2&1/2 or heavy cream. everyone's tolerance is different, but while i can't drink more than a tiny bit of raw whole milk, i can drink up to around 1 cup of 1/2&1/2.
