So maybe it's the fact that I was raised on a farm. I don't know, but when it comes to my beverage of choice....it's MILK. I drink alot of water too, but I drink at least 2 or 3 tall glasses of milk a day. Probably even more so since I've been staying away from "fake" drinks. Not even diet soda anymore! At first the break from caffeine bothered me. At least I think that's what it was...guess it coulda just been P.M.S.! At any rate, I've been soda free now for about 2 months I guess. I'm not really keeping track though. I drink mostly milk and water and every now and then fresh meadow tea or other tea. Sometimes lemonade too.
Pretty much anyone can tell you that I am no health nut. Lately though, I've been a lot more careful about what all goes in my body. Maybe it's the fact that hopefully in the next few months my body will be home to a growing baby. Maybe it's the fact that I've had 2 miscarriages and even though I've done some tests and was told that it looks like I am in great health and that is not the reason for my miscarriages, I know it wouldn't hurt me to eat better! So lately I've been watching what I eat and what I drink. Sure, I still go for the sugary treats and have a hard time saying no, but it has been getting easier. I also have been walking and working out with my hubby. More on that at a later post. I really wasn't gonna write all of that.
So what WAS I blogging about? (looks at title line) Oh yeah...MILK!
Ever since a friend of mine showed me what all is IN some milk, I have been telling everyone I know. I took some pictures the other day to prove it. Bet ya never looked at the ingredients in MILK before.
Yes, there it is, listed in the ingredients. "Nonfat dry milk". Ewww.gag. I don't know about you, but when I buy a gallon of milk, I expect it to be fresh good milk! Not dry milk.
Now I don't really like the taste of "raw milk". Good for you if you do, but for some reason it makes me gag. I think back to farm days and remember dad squirting fresh milk right into my mouth from the udder of some poor bovine, and I LOVED it. But maybe it's because I've been off the farm for 20 some years now that it's hard for me to go back to the raw milk.
So, I opt for 2nd best. If you live in Lancaster County, this place is the best place to buy milk!
They are located just off of Peter's Road in New Holland.
Do you know of any other place where they have a DRIVE THROUGH for milk and ice cream and other dairy products?!
Their prices are lower than regualar stores too!
Since we've been getting our milk here, we pretty much refuse to get it anywhere else. Sure, there has been the emergency run to Turkey Hill for milk, but when we are in the area of Lapp Valley we stock up! Stop in and see for yourself!
And this picture has nothing to do with milk, but I'm gonna add it here just cuz I like it! Last weekend my hubby and I went to see SHREK in 3D. Don't we rock the glasses?!
That's all....I'm off to enjoy a cold glass of MILK!
