Thanks for leadering :).
My milk thoughts: I eat plain yogurt, preferably whole fat, organic. If I drink milk (in a pinch with a protein powder, so not often at all), whole fat, organic. I'll also eat whole fat or 2% fat cottage cheese once in a while.
My old life is fraught with hunger - hunger because of grains (celiac disease), hunger from low-fat diet. I've never known the satiety I've grown to have by incorporating whole fats and oils into my diet. What a relief!
My soy beliefs: soy is overused and abused in our culture (like grains). I remember learning about soy in the mid-90s and thinking it was a perfect food (now I think eggs are :P). However, I'm hypothyroid and know it's an endocrine disrupter, so I won't go there. Soy should be non-GMO (and most ARE GMO), fermented for best utilization in the gut, as fermented foods (there are other choices besides soy/natto) aid digestion of vitamins and minerals. Soy is one of the most allergenic of foods (as are grains, and to be fair, dairy) required for food labels, but honestly, I know of only a few people who know.
I'll drink almond milk sometimes for a change, too.
I'm not trying for perfection cause I don't need more stress in my life trying - :).
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
