  • Milk?

    I am assuming milk from grass fed beef is ok?

    Please let me know

    Thanks!

    It's preferable to milk from grain-fed cattle. It's still high-ish in carbs and can promote a disproportionate insulin response (in respect to carb content). Some people tolerate dairy better than others.

      Milk is fine unless you have an issue with it. If you can get milk from grass fed cattle all the better but the other milk is okay too.

      I'd look for rBGH free. Not an issue in Canada but it is used in some dairy cattle in the US.

        I find that milk really has a negative affect on my blood sugar. It will literally stay high for over 24 hours if I drink milk, even organic grass-fed whole milk. If you have a way to check your blood sugar, I would suggest trying it to see what kind of things milk does to you--it might not be so negative for you.

          Same thing for cottage cheese?

            Yes!

            Personally I prefer Ricotta. Makes a great dessert with a little stevia and vanilla or almond extract.

                  If you're lucky, you'll have access to raw milk. My Real Foods store sells it. Fresh in every Mon & Thurs!

                    I do a lot better with raw dairy. Pasteurized dairy wrecks my digestive system. If you have no known lactose intolerance I would go with raw dairy. Just make sure if you go with conventional dairy to stay away from the low fat or non-fat variety since they remove the fat and replace it with sugar to make it taste less like water.

                    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                      My chiropractor says I have a milk sensitivity, and I believe him cuz it kills me when he does a colon cleanse/press after I've been enjoying dairy. Would raw dairy make a difference maybe? Or is it something I'd have to find out the hard way? I have access to raw milk, just haven't tried it yet.

                        I don't think anyone can answer that for sure except your body. I can't say if there is a difference in raw versus pasturized. Raw milk is illegal in Canada.

                          This is from the Organic Pastures FAQ. I buy their products and I am lactose intolerant to pasteurized/homogenized milk. But with raw dairy I do so much better. It has a lot of good information here and maybe they are distributing in your area.

                          They say in recent studies done on a group of lactose intolerant individuals. 90% of them showed no symptoms of lactose intolerance when consuming raw dairy. And they explain why.

                            I'm concerned about the amount of natural hormones in modern dairy compared to say, 100 years ago. Although I quit dairy altogether I would be interested in hearing opinions on this. I wonder how many days out of the year grass-fed cows are milked vs. conventional dairy?

                              I do drink raw grass-fed milk and if I can't get to the farmer's market, pasteurized grass-fed milk. I seem to do fine but I also limit my intake to about three glasses a week and usually after a meal because I worry about the potential insulin spike. I seem to do just fine, however, to really know, I know I should do an elimination trial. It's hard. I adore milk, cheese and yoghurt.
