I have created this website and the Nourishing Foods Menu Planner as resources for people who have allergies or sensitivities to dairy, gluten and soy products. So it may seem a bit paradoxical at first that I am writing about and promoting the use of raw milk. However, my hope is that by writing about this somewhat taboo and controversial topic that people who read it will learn the amazing qualities and attributes of this somewhat hidden and healthful food.
It took me a long time to wrap my brain around the possibilities that raw milk holds for people who are “lactose intolerant,” including myself. The first time I remember hearing about it’s healthful properties was from my chiropractor in Solano Beach, CA. He basically said that I might want to try it since he knew I couldn’t drink regular pasteurized milk.
Well, that was at least four years ago and I didn’t start drinking it until recently. It obviously took some convincing on my part to be open to something which has been claimed to be wrought with bacteria and diseases. Plus, I never liked milk growing up so why start now?
