Am I the only one who just can't get with the program this week?
I cannot seem to drag my butt out of bed before 7am to get to the gym, no matter how hard I try. The light comes on, the alarm goes off, I wake up... then my body says "Nope!" and drags me back into bed. I seem to have no control over it.
I do trust my body knows best, so I'm not kicking myself too hard, but it's still frustrating.
Part of the problem could be stress. School has me completely swamped with homework, and I'm certainly not eating as well as I could be. It's a juggling game and I'm about to drop some knives.
I know dairy is one of those "moderation" foods according to all Primal and Paleo dieters, but I'm starting to question whether it may actually have a place in my diet. I found a source for Organic, Grass-fed, RAW milk. How can I turn this down? Especially with my chaotic schedule. It seems like it could be a very good and healthful "fast food."
Not to mention all the things I can make with it.
2) Ice Cream
That's just off the top of my head. I also find that milk can be surprisingly filling (Yay fat!) and help me control my appetite.
Because I'm kind of obsessive, I did find some links as to why drinking raw milk might be a good thing. This one from Nourished Kitchen is convincing. Especially the bit about clabbering. (You read that right. Clabbering.)
Maybe the Masai aren't too far off. Now if only I could find some fresh blood to supplement...
You think I'm joking.
Nah, no you don't. You know me by now.
Have you ever tried dairy with honey? Now THAT is heaven!
And let's not forget Marilyn Monroe and her very Primalesque diet. Milk and eggs for breakfast, meat and veggies for dinner. I see nothing unhealthy about this... especially if one is to consume milk raw.
Summer's coming, and there's nothing better than a nice, thick protein shake after a morning workout, or for lunch while sunbathing. With hot weather comes my inclination to eat more raw foods. Maybe milk will be one of them?
I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions on raw milk as not just a treat, but a staple of diet.
