Hi Guys. I have been cooking strictly Vegan dishes for a few weeks now and am very happy with the way I have been feeling. Of course there are a few downs seeing as I was a fast food junkie for so long, but I feel I have adjusted quite well and much easier than imagined. I have found a local market to get my organic vegetables as well as a Whole Foods store about an hour away to get the hard to find items (I am in a small town, so these things can be difficult to locate!). I just have a question I would like your advice on if possible, what is the best kind of milk to use? I am trying to stay away from large amounts of Soy, as I am eating Seitan and other products I didn't want to go for Soy milk. I bought Almond milk yesterday and really enjoy the flavor, is this best to use or should I have went for Rice milk or another brand called Tempt I believe? Before this I had only been drinking Organic Whole Milk. Thanks for any help! JM
Almond milk for me, hands down. I make my milks raw by hand most of the time and make almond, hempseed, and brazil nut milks all the time. I also buy the unsweetened almond milk from the store to have on hand.
I go with the almond milk too, as I try to watch my soy as well. Trader Joes has a new "milk" without soy that is called Whole Grain Drink or something that is good as well (soy free I believe) and inexpensive. I have never made my own almond milk before, but will definetely like to try sometime.
Thanks for the replies guys! I see almond milk is definitely the general consensus, I guess that is good considering I just bought three cartons! Ha! After taste testing I would recommend Almond milk to anyone (not allergic, of course!), it tastes great, lacks soy, and is super healthy all around!
too much soy has been linked to reproductive problems, breast cancer etc. There is soy in most of our processed foods in the US. in other countries where they consume soy daily they haven't had these issues, so its hard to say for sure, but a lot of people try to avoid too much processed soy, like in soy milk, or vegan convience products.
