Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Your choice!

As Imogen is a vegan, she has to drink soya milk, on the other hand, Camille has chosen to drink soya milk. When Imogen visits us from uni and then goes back to London, she leaves behind the bottle of soya milk she has started and naturally in order to avoid wasting, I finish it. I actually like the nutty taste of soya milk. Steven on his part does not drink milk at all and hardly uses it in cooking. He will have a black coffee! 
I did a bit of research and after reading that, I am very tempted to switch completely to soya milk.
What do you think? Do you drink lots of milk anyway or not? Have you ever tasted soya milk?

Unlike cow's milk, soy milk is naturally low in fat. Regular-fat soy milk contains slightly more fat per cup than 2% milk, but it is naturally free from saturated fat (which is considered to be more unhealthy than unsaturated fat ). ( More on fat contents in milk )

Because it is made from plant material instead of an animal byproduct, soy milk contains no cholesterol . Dairy milk contains about 20 milligrams of cholesterol per cup. An adult's recommended daily allowance of cholesterol is 300 milligrams, and many people with high cholesterol or some types of heart problems are better off consuming well below the usual RDA of cholesterol.

Soy milk is also high in protein . One cup of soy milk contains about seven to ten grams of protein. This is similar to cow's milk, which contains eight grams of protein per cup. Although some sources say that soy protein in soy milk is undigestible or an incomplete protein, this is not true. Soy milk protein is a complete protein and is highly digestible. Here is an interesting chart!

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
