Vegan Milk 101

Posted by  Michelle Feinberg

Milk from a cow is designed by nature to help a calf grow from an 85-pound baby to a 1,500-pound adult cow. Read: It’s not good for humans. Not to mention the fact that cows exploited by the dairy industry are forcibly impregnated (rape), have their children stolen shortly after giving birth (kidnapping), and endure painful mutilations, filthy and cramped living conditions, and neglect (abuse).

Why? So that humans can take the milk meant for their babies (theft), many of whom will be killed for veal (murder).

Luckily, there are, like, a thousand rape-, kidnap-, abuse-, theft-, and murder-free options to pour over your cornflakes.

    The first time I tried almond milk (Almond Breeze) I thought it was so disgusting. You have to go with the unsweetened variety. It tastes so much better.

    My entire family has started drinking cashew milk.. even my Dad loves it! He thinks it tastes better than cow milk. My dad is the pickiest eater ever and NEVER wants to try new things.. so I’m super happy!

    I’m still vegetarian, not vegan, but I try look for vegan alternatives whenever I can. I don’t like the taste of dairy milk, but I love almond and soy milk. I’ve never had any of these other kinds, but they sound like they are worth a try :

    I love Almond Breeze, it tastes sweet. Soy milk is best with vegan cocoa for hot chocolate. The best part is the save cows from more suffering and their poor baby boys from becoming veal.

    But Almond Breeze has lecithin in it… isn’t that from animal fat?

      Soy is the standard for lecithin in the food industry these days. 🙂

    Soy, I love it. I’m not too fond of unsweetened Soy, my favourite is Vanilla. Almond, LOVE! Rice, Very good! Hemp, never had it. Coconut, never had it.. I do wonder about flax seed milk and oat milk..
