Skip cow milk

I am big cereals fan :) like most of us i guess.

I used to really like Granola (still do) but heard thousand of bad things about it so i try to avoid them. The best cereals you can have is Muesli / Porridge (oats) but i am not a big fan of it. Although that Porridge's got an high amount of fibre and energy which prevents you from overheating, keeps you full and warm but still prefer a cold cereals bowl in the morning.

My favourites are the Wholegrain fruit & fibre (the purple packet) from Sainsbury or the fruit & fibre one by Kellogg's. I think they are quite fulfilling, good, cheap and pretty low in salt and calories.

Now, i have created this post as i wanted to share that i have been eating cereals for ever and started to have few months ago a sort of discomfort. So i swapped my usual skinny (cow) milk for the rice milk (or soy or almond milk) which is lower in fat, a tasty alternative for vegans, safe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance and much more digest and better for you than cow milk and i feel the difference, i fell less bloated.

Did you know that 3glasses of low fat (cow) milk add up 300kcal to your day?

We aren't supposed to drink cow milks in adulthood anyway. Its full of fatty acids which basically makes you fat! Without counting thats a nightmare for the cows themselves.

Thinking that cow milk will bring you the amount of calcium you need is totally wrong considering that Chinese people drink half as much calcium and have a very low incidence of the bone disease.

So do a favour to your body and our planet, stop drinking cow milk.
