As my fridge is currently on no-grocery-shopping-before-moving-empty mode, I found out I'm doing really great without cow milk in it.
Oh, cow milk. It's such a big deal in our province.
The government pushes it so much. It's terrible. They're selling it like it was a magic potion, really. The Dairy industry is everywhere in pubs, they financed the nutritional chart, etc...
Even more, most health care professionals were in denial. It's starting to change. They are speaking of changing the word "intolerance" for "stage 4 allergies" So people take it seriously. But... as many things, people don't want to change. It really is a base for cooking. Most people don't feel good if there's no milk in their fridge, should it only be to poor some in their coffee in the morning.
Here we are eating mama-made Popsicle made out of honey melon, rice mylk, pears and soft dessert toffu (banana flavored, if I recall correctly). Pops on a hot solstice day is the way to go!
But still, I'm amazed on how little interested people are about the food they put in theirs and their children's mouth! And on how little effort they are willing to provide so they could eat wholesome, healthy food everyday!
Don't get me wrong, we have those days (like, pops and bagels for souper day) were I don't feel like making much for mealtime. But for some it's like that everyday. And when they open their freezer, they don't reach for healthy pops; instead, frozen half-cooked meat, frozen full of sodium pastas, over processed food...Pogos! Ew!
I can't wait to make some groceries and refurnish our cupboard... With no quinoa, couscous, rice, beans left.... It's starting to get trickier each day! But I think I have a good milestone made; I will skip the cow milk aisle when we go. I learned other ways to cook.
