Raw Milk Step 1 (The Decision): To Drink or Not To Drink?

In my journey towards better health, I have sprung upon a new tangent: that of traditional cooking and eating. What does traditional mean? It means to revert back to a natural, ethnic diet that my ancestors ate, where I make my own foods in my very own kitchen. (Yes, as a girl who grew up in the suburbs with a mother that hated to cook, I am nervous! But over the years I have learned to be a better and better cook, and I did not start with much. Even cooking toast in the toaster used to be a challenge!) The ingredients: All organic and raw. (I am passionate about avoiding GMO's (Genetically Modified Organism)!!!! In fact, I am quite obsessed with it.) And this includes milk... Having done quite a bit of research when it comes to raw milk vs. pasteurized... I have decided after much thought and prayer, that I will give raw milk a chance. Members of my family are nervous about this. But after learning about the huge nutritional difference, the possibilities of raw milk in creating many, many different products in my own kitchen, and with an understanding that knowing my farmer and their practices in how they treat their animals means all the difference in the world in making this choice. I believe that with this knowledge I am making a good choice and I feel strongly that this is where the Lord wants me to be. I have been relying heavily on Sarah Pope, also known as the Healthy Home Economist (www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com), and the knowledge and guidance she offers on her blog in articles and video's. I have also been reading a lot! I'll list the books later on so you too can check them out. And so... here I go. I shall follow up in "Raw Milk Step 2: Choosing The Farm.
