I Think I'm Obsessed With Organic MilkMonday, September 03, 2012
|We haven't actually tried Horizon yet, but it's an easily recognizable brand.|
So as I mentioned a week ago, we're merging into a lifestyle where we eat things that are better for us and the environment. One of the switches we've made is switching from regular milk to organic from grass-fed cows. It's definitely a lot more expensive (half a gallon is more expensive than a regular gallon of milk), but I think it tastes a lot better.
I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I love skim milk. A lot of people think it's weird, I know, but I was raised drinking skim and it's what I'm used to. I don't like 2%; I think it's too thick and too sweet. However, I switched to 2% either a little before or around the time we started trying to get pregnant after I read a study linking skim milk to infertility (I don't think my excessive consumption of skim milk has anything to do with my own infertility, but it would be pretty ironic if it was). But anyway, I switched.
It was pretty difficult at first, and sometimes it still is. I have trouble drinking a glass of 2% milk on its own, but it's doable in cereal. However, it's different with the organic milk. It tastes different (to me, anyway). It's not as thick; it's thinner and smoother, which is a lot easier for my skim-loving self to handle. It's still a bit sweet, but the sweetness is more subtle.
I don't think we'll be going back to regular milk.
