Learn to prepare vegetable milks that are nutritious and delicious!

Animal milk is one of the most basic ingredients in many people’s diets. But recent studies show us that the consumption of animal milk presents, especially for adults, more problems than advantages. Did you know, for example, that our bodies can’t process the majority of the calcium that comes from animal milk? Or that the calcium from some vegetables is more appropriate?

With this book, you will learn to prepare, quickly and easily, a large variety of vegetable milks that are as nutritious as they are tasty. Included is information regarding:

The benefits of vegetable milks
The best alternatives to sugar
How to prepare rice milks, soy milks, barley milks, oat milks, coconut milks, and almond milks
Horchata drinks and other healthy beverages
The best substitutes for tea and coffee
How to make malted milks
And more!

INTRODUCTION

Why Choose Vegetable Drinks?

Milk is and has been one of mankind’s most basic foods for hundreds of years. Not only milk, but also other dairy products produced from it, like yogurt, cream, and cheese. This is because milk contains a great variety of nutrients that are beneficial for our bodies.

But is it really necessary to consume milk to feed our bodies and minds? In terms of nutrients, the answer is yes. For instance, it has minerals (phosphorus, zinc, and magnesium), proteins (casein, lactalbumins, and lactoglobulins), vitamins (especially vitamin B), and carbohydrates (lactose). Milk also contains calcium, which is essential for strong and healthy bones.

For a long time, milk has been considered to be one of the healthiest foods for our bodies. Only in recent times has it become clear that it has several side effects that we can’t ignore, and this realization not only sheds a new light on its nutritional value but makes the case that milk may not be recommended for consumption by adults.

Many of the presumed benefits of milk are actually now considered to be detrimental to our overall health. For example, it is important to talk about calcium because, in Western medicine, calcium content is presented as the main reason for consuming milk. It’s true that milk is rich in calcium, but, as a matter of fact, when we consume milk, most of this calcium transforms into calcium phosphate and is expelled from the body in the feces. Therefore, we can’t use it. Other foods give us more calcium, like legumes, nuts, and vegetables. Their calcium content is not as rich, but it is better assimilated into the body.

On the other hand, there are many people that show symptoms of lactose intolerance. And, even though the data is not yet conclusive, it is believed that half of the world’s population may suffer from this condition, lactose being the main carbohydrate contained in milk. This intolerance is a consequence of the lack of an enzyme, lactase, which metabolizes lactose. Common symptoms are diarrhea, gas, abdominal pain, and weight loss.

ADVANTAGES OF A MILK-FREE DIET IN ADULTS

Did you know that humans are the only animals that consume the milk of another species once the breastfeeding period is over? There are countless studies that prove that removing milk from ones diet is not a risk for bones, as long as one follows a sensible diet. For instance, Harvard University conducted a twelve year study on seventy-eight thousand women and found that not drinking milk, or drinking only small quantities, did not increase the risk of osteoporosis. Another, more curious example: Despite not drinking animal milk, African Bantu women don’t suffer from bone problems associated with lack of calcium. It’s also important to keep in mind that each Bantu woman has, on average, eight children whom she must breastfeed
