Might as well make this informative while we are here.... Here is a little factoid I read on web site about milk:

Milk contains many different nutrients
Milk and milk products contain a good balance of protein, fat and carbohydrate and are a very important source of essential nutrients including:
Vitamins A, D and B12
Pantothenic acid.
Milk products also contain ‘high quality proteins’ that are well suited to human needs. Milk proteins increase the value of poorer quality cereal and vegetable proteins in the diet by providing the amino acids these proteins lack.

Of course moderation is the key to every thing! Supplement the diet with milk, don't exist on it.

Love the milk! Add a little chocolate syrup and it becomes something similar to the nectar of the gods!

Milk, it does a body good... who hasn't heard that one? We homogenize it, pasteurize, take out the fat, (only god knows how we can do that and still have something left that looks like milk). Some say that the things we do to milk, those I just mentioned, make it more detrimental to our health than to our benefit. The molecular structure breaks down and causes things to happen in our bodies that it shouldn't IE: plague build up in the arteries..

Milk is after all the stuff the baby cows drink until weaned, which turns them into huge farm yard animals in a very short time in comparison to our lifespan. Is it really meant to be such a prominent part of our diet? Inquiring minds want to know...

I don't like milk. I buy 2% for my family and to use in cooking. I will occasionally have a bowl of cereal. I get my calcium from yogurt and cheese.

I like milk but it doesn't like me, so I use Silk soy milk in smoothies and on cereal and such. Also, chocolate soy milk is a great post-exercise recovery drink.

I love milk - we drink 2%. I limit myself to one glass about 3 or 4 days a week. I do use it in cooking or baking.
