Milk is a beverage that I love. I do not drink milk the way that I use to, however, when I do I cannot drink milk straight in large amounts.
There was a time when I could drink as much milk as I wanted and it would not bother my digestive system. Now that I am older things have changed.
If I consume over three medium size cups of milk within a day I will be on the toilet seat stricken with diarrhea.
Some times when I eat or drink certain things they can taste so good that I cannot get enough of what I intake. And when a food or beverage is healthy and nutritious there is not too much harm that can result from overindulging, unless one has a serious medical problem such as diabetes and so on.
I took a notice of how whenever I ate or drank something that I used and combined with milk, I was able to consume as much of quantity as I wanted within one day.
I could eat numerous bowls of cereal with milk and my stomach would not at all get agitated. If I drank four to five medium size cups of hot or cold milk that was combined with my favorite Nestle Nesquick brand “very vanilla” flavored drink mix or Nestle Carnation french vanilla classic instant breakfast drink mix, it would not bother my digestive system at all.
Maybe the comparison has more to do with the ingredients that are in the other products. It is very possible that my body is better able to absorb high volumes of milk that are partially blended with other substances.
As I am particular about the things that I put into my body milk is no exception. I do not drink just any manufactured type of the beverage. I do not buy milk from cows that are treated with the hormone rbst.
I once tried soy milk. I could not stand the taste of it, though.
Milk in general has good properties. I know for a fact that it counteracts poison. And everyone knows that milk is a very good source of vitamin D. I take vitamin D supplements. Vitamin d2 (ergocalciferol) to be specific.
Milk also tastes very good. Especially when the beverage is cold or on ice.
There are the things that also go great together with the consumption of milk, especially sweets. Cookies and cakes, of course. Along with ice cream (shakes), tea and a variety of coffees.
For breakfast or lunch milk goes good with crescent rolls, toast, cold cuts, sandwiches and grilled cheese.
Some people like to dip their fruit and pastries in milk. And some people even drink and use milk as a laxative.
I drink milk only once in a while. I eat good quality vanilla ice cream rather frequently. So i am not exactly a milk fanatic. Yet I am crazy about the ice cream. As one grows they sometimes change. And that can include in ones dietary intake.
I remember when I was a child how I could not stand the taste of strawberries. In my late teenage years as well as now in my adult years, I just love them.
Sometimes our preferences are a mind thing. We may see a flaw, smell a specific odor, or hear about an undesirable ingredient that is contained in one of our favorite foods and get turned off by it. In other instances our taste buds merely evolve.
I been stopped eating cold boxed cereal. Those type of products are not really very nutritious. Hot cereals such as grits, farina, and oatmeal are wholesome and nourishing. I always loved oatmeal. And oatmeal an raisin cookies.
I do not know for sure if I am absolutely lactose intolerant or if my body is just responding to an issue and condition that triggers when I ingest large amounts of milk. Whatever the case or cause may be, I recognized the problem long ago when it began and I discovered a remedy of better tolerance for my consumption of drinking milk.
