Lifestyle habits (that make you feel better inside & out)

The big break up – Why I’ve cut out dairy!

Up to this day, dairy is still one of the most controversial topics in nutrition out there. I decided stir a little in the soup of confusion and arguments as well and share my story about why I broke up with dairy years ago… I haven’t intended to write this post to convince or transform anyone to anything. Rather,I have intended to speak about it for those who are interested in this topic; for those who look for truths and infromation and are willing to look at the topic from another point of view.  My goal is to inspire people to take care of their health and the environment around them. So let’s get started…     While for most of us milk, cheese, yoghurt, ice cream, chocolate … were big parts of our childhood day to day life, more and more people around the world decide to “give it all up”. But why? What about the strong bones and the healthy teeth? The calming honey-milk that puts you right to sleep? Milk being a super-food? All the calcium? … and the list goes on.    Well sad truth: most of those stories that we heard since our childhood, are lies – or at least stories that try to cover the horrible reality. But what’s so horrible about the white liquid, I hear you ask. Won’t cows feel pain if we don’t milk them?    THE COW  Let’s start in the beginning – with the cow. While I don’t want to get too much into detail in this post (there are tons of scary– ass youtube videos out there documenting exactly what is happening to dairy cows on a daily basis, if you want to learn more), most of us are unaware of how the milk actually gets in the bottled containers in the store.   To get milk, a cow must be pregnant or recently been given a baby. Sadly, nothing in this industry happens naturally, so the female cow gets forcefully impregnated. Right         after she gave birth, mom and baby get seperated, as humans want the milk that otherwise the baby would drink.     These days cows are producing more milk than ever. A cow on a modern farm produces more than 20,000 pounds of milk. Per year!    The cycle of constant artificial fertilization, stealing their babies, milking till their udders bleed and ulcerate, only stops when their production decreases  due to exhaustion and they get slaughtered. Putting it in a other words: Cows are killed for dairy.    YOUR HEALTH  Let’s talk health for a second. Because that’s what we all want right? Health is our biggest wealth, and without it we have nothing. Something like that..     We’ve been told that calcium is an […]
