Colin Campbell, the largest epidemiological study on food and disease ever performed implicating excessive protein use and dairy consumption in particular  in most if not all Western chronic conditions.

Simply put:  cow’s milk is for cows, goat’s milk is for goats, and human’s milk is for humans.  And we all stop drinking it after we are infants.  With the consumption of dairy, most people notice and increase in nasal congestion and phlegm which is a natural response from the body toward a foreign invader.  Even though dairy is pasteurized, our immune system does not care if the bacteria and viruses are dead or alive.   And for others, the damage could be cardio-vascular inflammation and disease, which is only noticeable after your blood vessels are 70% occluded, hence the term the Silent Killer.  Even a small amount of dairy can set off a cascade of damage that is hard to recover from.

Healthy Choices and Dairy Substitutes

Milk:  Soy, Oat, Almond and Rice milk
Cheese:  Soy, Almond, nut
Butter:  Smart Balance, Nucoa, Earth balance, Spectrum, Benecol, Margarine Spreads with NO whey or casein
Ice Cream:  Soy, Rice, Sorbet, Tofutti Cutie’s
Others:   Vegannaise, Soy yogurt, Tofutti Sour Cream, Silk or WestSoy non-dairy creamer

  • Regular:  good in soups, cold with green onions and soy sauce
  • Soft/Silken:  Good for blender drinks with fruit, mixes for pudding
  • Firm or Pressed:  Good for stir-fries, stronger taste
  • Tofu Bologna:  may have egg whites and wheat
  • Tofu Burgers:  Made with tempeh, a fermented soybean food
  • Dehydrated soy meats:  May have wheat and/or yeast and high sodium

Tempeh:  Indonesian style fermented soybeans; higher protein than tofu because it is made with the whole bean rather than soymilk.  It has a stronger flavor than tofu and a chewy texture; good marinated and stir-fried.  However, it is NOT a reliable source of Vitamin B12.

Miso:  fermented soybean soup and sauce base. Dark miso has less salt and a richer flavor than light miso, but all miso is at least 5-10% salt.  Mugi (barley) miso is best for soups and sauces.
