Got Milk, But Not Really - Silk Soy Products

I'm no vegan, sure. I even eat fish sometimes, though not since all those mercury warnings in the Times. But I was raised on soymilk, so to me real milk tastes like the fake stuff. Yeah, I know.

Soymilk is a perfect beverage for those who have a
dairy allergy or are lactose intolerant. Silk Soymilks are
dairy and lactose free, in addition to being vegan safe,
kosher-DE, and gluten-free.

Soy protein has been shown to moderately reduce
elevated blood cholesterol levels and may lower blood
pressure as well. Research on the heart-healthy
benefits of soy is so convincing that the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) allows soy food companies
to carry a health claim on their labels advising
consumers of the cardiovascular benefits of eating soy
protein as part of a healthy diet.

Studies show that populations who consume soy foods
on a regular basis have lower rates of certain cancers
including breast, prostate, colon, and endometrial
cancers. In fact, in Japan and China where soy foods
are a staple of the diet, breast cancer rates are just
one-fifth of those in the Western world.

So why not give Silk Soymilk a try? As a fortified soymilk, it has the same amount of calcium as run-of-the-mill cow's milk; 300 miligrams per 8-ounce glass. Plus, this stuff comes in Plain, Vanilla, Chocolate, even Mocha and--wait for it--CHAI. AND ALL OF THEM ARE GOOD FOR YOU! Plus, Starbucks picked this brand as its choice soymilk. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is JUSTICE.

Silk is probably my favorite brand--I love the unsweetened. I am not vegan or even vegetarian but I love the taste!

Yuck! Sorry, but I just can not stand this stuff! It's just so...not milk.

I been internets-deprived--seriously, I go to starbucks with my lappy just to post here. Therefore I really recommend Organic Chai or Giant Peach Ice Tea, because their coffee bugs me. At least you tried!
and cakespy--it going splendidly with chocolate, cookies, or cupcakes. I like it with apple pie, man.

After doing some research for while, I have realized that the way soy is processed is insane. Although there are many rumors that may not be true on the Internet.
