Indeed. I'm trying this: Baking wash then jojoba oil. Next day do nothing. Next day shave. Next day Baking soda wash then jojoba oil. Repeat. This was I'm not washing the same day as shaving and I give my skin a chance to heal. Splashing/rinsing with cold water really does help too!

I received some raw goat milk today
It's very tasty and I can easily digest it. I tried making ice cream without heating the milk or adding eggs, but due to fat molecules, it doesn't form like normal pasteurised ice cream does.
The farmer also informed me that because goat milk has no agglutinin, which is the stuff that makes cows milk separate into thick cream on top, the consistency of the ice cream isn't great. (Agglutinin is very allergic, so the fact that goats milk doesn't have it makes it a lot easier to tolerate - but it doesn't raise a cream the way cow's milk does.)
Can I drink too much milk? I mean, if I have 180ml Kefir (recommended amount per day) plus say, 300ml raw milk and some ice cream or cheese? I'm actually thinking about investing my money in dairy more so than meat, just because I feel much better with it. This high quality dairy isn't cheap at all so I will have to make some compromises, but will never cut out meat entirely. (I like to plan ahead so knowing what my options are and what they provide me with are essential)
I'll still drink the shop-bought OJ for now, as I plan on buying a juicer when my leafy greens grow. I think that by drinking the milk and eating a lot of fruit, I won't have t rely as much on the fruit juices, even if they are freshly made at home.
My food pyramid would now look something like this (bearing in mind that it's not easy to picture a plate of milk/cheese compared to some meat)
Meat (almost all Minced Lamb)
Fish (salmon, pilchards)
Organ Meat / Bone Broth
Nut Flour / Eggs (only when baking which is very rare/monthly)
This is a complete 180 on my diet a few months ago but I feel so much better now.
Skin hasn't improved but it takes a long time and I know that now.

I once had homemade goat milk ice cream at a ranch in Montana (the milk was from goats raised on the ranch), and it was SO good. Best ice cream I've ever had.

It really does taste a lot better than even the premium stuff. (Organic Green & Blacks)!

You need starter culture, rennet, and a recipe for the type of cheese you want to make. Look up a recipe first, because you may also want to get some other supplies, too.

I think this is a great addition to your diet and no there is no limit. You should eat as muh dairy as you can get a hold of. Awesome work, dude!

It looks like there is a fair amount of stuff needed to make truly raw cheese... Hmmm, not sure about this yet but thanks for the heads up! Are there any extra benifits of making a hard cheese compared to a soft cheese? I like both but if one has more benifits, I'd probably look at making that one.

Thanks, I really feel much better now! Who'd have thought that the major food (groups) I've been avoiding for years are actually what I need back to regain health.

Soft cheese will be ready to eat much, much sooner.

Yea id probably skip trying to make your own cheese. Any raw cheese you buy at a decent store moat likely will also be pastured. Just drink the milk and kefir and save your $.
