MMM..This is just SOY good!

Soy either Love it or hate it.  For myself I actually really, really like it. 

In my quest for health and feeling good, I decided to switch to Soy.
I have never been a huge cow milk drinker.  In fact I remember as a child the thought of it turned my stomach.  I could never work out why all my friends used to gulp it down and loved getting milk mustaches.  It repulsed me...ugh!
As i have gotten older, I can tollerate it a lot better.  When I was Pregnant with my kids I craved milk and had alot of chocolate malted milkshakes.  Even though I craved it I felt a bit icky after it.  Still, I drink it, and I always feel a bit Blah after. 
I switched to Soy about 3 and a half weeks ago and I must say...No more Bleh feeling.  Honestly! 
I can drink a glass of it (in a smoothie) and I dont get that icky after taste or rumbly tummy.  I feel lighter and I heard it is high in Protein...which is fantastic news.

Im no expert (and not against cows milk) but I heard in my google travells that "Dairy is a tremendous mucus producer and a burden on the respiratory, digestive and immune systems." I am an asthamatic and suffer from sinus so I can vouch for the fact that it does do somthing to my breathing...such a change since swapping to soy.
I have also heard that Rice milk is also great, so I may give that a go too.  I will let you know how it goes.


  1. Hi. I just started reading your blog and I really enjoy it. I love soy milk too, and I also really like rice milk. Make sure you shake the carton really well as it does separate. It is fabulous in oats if you like them, makes them very creamy.
