In the land of Milk and Honey (or Los Angeles)- all is not sweet!
Everyone seems to be excited and talking about milk and honey shoes, but health conscious folks are concerned more about hormones and pollutants showing up in the milk supply rather than if custom wedding shoes match the theme of the event. Not only are contaminants scary to think about -frankly, cow’s milk isn’t even a properly balanced food . Trying to sweeten the pot with honey? – well that might not be the answer either. Read on to find out why.
Milk is not just cold white goodness. The milk of every animal is unique and specifically tailored to the requirements of that species. For example, cows’ milk has more protein in it than human milk does. Three to four times as much, and has five to seven times the mineral content. Minerals are important – check out www.ivitaminscience.com if you want to read about that. However, cow’s milk is markedly deficient in essential fatty acids when compared to human milk. Mothers’ milk has six to ten times as much of the essential fatty acids, especially linoleic acid. (Incidentally, skimmed cow’s milk has no linoleic acid). We need these essential fatty acids to keep our waistlines tight, our muscles strong, and our circulation and energy healthy.
