Got milk?

March 2, 2012

Day 1,

I do! After 29 days I finally had milk again. It was the first thing I brought back after my hypoallergenic diet. I was told the thing you want to bring back first and crave the most is what you are usually allergic to. This morning I had regular milk, not almond, rice, or coconut milk. Good old fashion cow milk. It was so amazing. I totally forgot how wonderful milk is. It is completely different from all the other wannabes no matter what anyone says. There isn’t a weird false milk aftertaste.

There are plenty of arguments accusing animal milk to be unnatural for humans to consume. We are the only species that consume milk past infancy and also consume other species milk. Now I don’t think we should all switch to human breast milk. I’m conflicted to drink dairy because it tastes so amazing. Nothing goes better with warm chocolate chip cookies or apple pie.

When I lived in Switzerland I would walk down the street to the Milchcentral and get a glass bottle of fresh warm milk from the cow in the back. There isn’t any milk better than that. So rich, creamy, fresh. I could bathe in it.

I feel so conflicted. I want to be as healthy as possible, since I don’t seem to be allergic to milk it’ll be hard to stay away. And by hard I mean impossible. I won’t cry over it though. Unless it spilt.
