    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.

    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.
