Dairy is an essential element of any diet due to its high Calcium content, not to mention other nutrients like potassium, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamins A, B12 and D. It’s every sportsman’s best friend. They munch on cottage cheese like crazy and it does them good. Generally, dairy seems like a healthy thing to include in your diet.
The benefits of dairy are:
- it is key to strong bones;
- it contains probiotics which are irreplaceable for your stomach, gut and pancreas;
- supports metabolism;
- improves your skin;
- helps control the blood pressure.
However, not everybody is that thrilled with the idea of introducing dairy to their diet. In fact, dairy stirred quite the controversy around itself. The anti-dairy promoters include vegans and lactose-intolerant people. They will definitely warn you to stay away from it.
However, the beauty of dairy is that you can make it yourself from different ingredients. Vegans use all kinds of different things to make “milk” (one of the recipes features poppy seeds, the other – cashews). So why limit yourself to something as boring as store-bought milk if you can make your own? Try for yourself and choose the best-suiting method.
