Follow Up on Drinking More Whole Milk


Last week in the Teplitz Blurb, I wrote about it now being okay to have more whole milk in your diet as it has beneficial impacts. There were a couple of caveats that I should have pointed out.


1. The way regular dairy cows are raised today you can have issues with antibiotics being given to them as well as them not being pasture raised.

2. Many people are allergic to cow’s milk and some question whether we should be drinking cow’s milk past childhood.

3.  If you are going to drink whole milk, see if you can get organic and if your state allows it, get raw milk. In Virginia, my wife, Elizabeth, and I own a share of a cow, which is legal to do so we get to have raw milk. 

4. Yogurt and Keifer that have live bacteria in them is more beneficial to the body than drinking just milk.

5. There are other options to getting fats in your diet besides drinking milk. Nuts, seeds, avocados, chia seeds and fatty fish are all good choices. So are oils, such as, extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.

Basically, you have a number of options to look at when you decide to add more fat into your diet.
