I've heard good things about goat milk cheese but am afraid to try it. Plus it does cost more and for me to eat clean some things have to go to stay on budget and since I'm leaning towards a vegan diet anyway seems cheese would just go.

You can culture your own from cashews at home pretty easily I take it. I haven't tried it yet but someone on the raw food team shared tips on doing it.

I don't know where you live, 4ALLUDO, but you might have access to a dairy close by that practices sustainable farming. There are a lot of dairy products available that though they aren't specifically "certified organic" still produce good stuff that isn't tainted with hormones, antibiotics and other drugs and where the cows are out in the sunshine eating grass all day.

You might call the dairies of the available cheeses and ask them about their farming practices. I can guarantee pretty much that the big name, nationally distributed dairy products aren't going to be clean of that toxic stuff and their animals will be ill-treated. But look around. There might be a co-op available to you that will offer healthy cheeses and other dairy products. I love my co-op. I can get great things at very reasonable prices.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

There are several ways. I live in a rural community and there is an organic dairy about 20 miles from here. Do a search for organic dairy farms near your community. Second, we have a farmer's market every Friday in the closest town to us. Every-other week this dairy comes and brings its milk and cheese. Third, I also belong to a co-op (United Foods) which provides organic dairy products. This is always my last choice, for things are not local, though they typically are from my state. I hope this helps.

Oh, as far as expense. In this area organic dairy products run pretty close to those which aren't. They are a little more expensive, but not when you consider your health. Organic chicken, on the other hand, is $4.25/pound. Outrageous when you can harvest your own. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

How/where do you find local/organic diary products? Is it a lot more expensive? Eg. I found organic goats milk yogurt in the store yesterday, but it was $10.99! Too much for us right now.

Cheese is fine if it's organic and local emoticon

So I am still doing my research before I begin clean eating and am unsure about a lot of things including cheese. Are some better than others or is all bad? I am a bit confused with milk. Any help would be highly appreciated! thanks emoticon
