Lots of folks out there choose not to drink dairy milk for many reasons from health to personal beliefs. For me, it is health if we had a farm where the milk came straight from the cow, and I knew it was pure, then I might reconsider but for now I am non-dairy kind of gal. But as some of you have found out finding healthy alternatives can be just as daunting. Yup, because as usual companies see a niche and produce inferior products with just as many chemicals or preservatives as mainstream products. So whats a person to do? No problem we have you covered, well actually Meg from Whats Up Moms does.
