“I like to drink milk, it helps me grow and think!” – Milk Dee
With what looks like the world currently jumping on the vegan bandwagon, it makes sense that shop shelves are becoming increasingly filled with products to accommodate this latest ‘fashion trend‘.
Despite the fact that it can be seen to be that supermarkets are caving in to vegan demand by supplying more vegan food, the real fact is they are solely doing this for profit… and NOTHING else.
One only has to take the time to look closely at the ingredient lists on these so-called ‘healthy‘ food products to discover that they are often not only far from healthy but in fact toxic (and unfortunately in some cases, even more toxic than their non-vegan counterparts)!
Unfortunately too many sheeple – speared on by celebrity endorsements or celebrity claims – are quick to follow what they have been lead to believe is the right thing to do, without taking the time to fully research facts for themselves (and by this one does not mean Google, newspapers or the news…), which leads to a generation of blind followers consuming nothing but unhealthy lies.
This can only lead to no good.
Supermarkets and corporations are disgracefully able to supply poison falsely labelled as ‘healthy’ not only because of shameless profit but because of the unfortunate fact that so many uninformed and misguided consumers still fail to recognise that what you see is rarely what you get…
An example of this can be found in the increasing amount of vegan milks adorning many a supermarket shelf today.
One look at the list of toxic ingredients on the back of these products should be enough to make any vegan want to run into a field and drink the milk straight from a peacefully grazing cow!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
If you care about your body, you MUST care about the type of food that goes inside your body!
Who buys chemically laden shop bought vegan milk when you can DO IT YOURSELF?
Why buy chemical-filled nonsense from supermarkets when you can make a PURE version from the comfort of your own home?
(Listen, not all products (be they food or skin care) are rubbish, but if for any reason you are dubious about certain products and the corporations which produce or sell them, then the best thing to do is to make your own.)
… As simple as home-made vegan milk.
Hemp milk really is amazing.
Not only as an alternative to animal milk but for those who are lactose intolerant and have immune issues hemp milk really is a life saver!
High in protein but low in calories, hemp milk is also full of essential nutrients and vitamins such as magnesium, vitamins B, D and E.
Hemp milk is known to strengthen the bones (thanks to the high calcium levels), thereby omitting the ned for conventional animal milk.
Hemp milk is also excellent for strengthening the immune system.
Made with basically two ingredients and ready in just a matter of minutes, nutritious vegan hemp milk really is the way to go!
Give this nutritious and tasty natural vegan milk a go yourself and let me know how it was for you.
(One last thing for all my hemp smoking lovers: no, you cannot get high on hemp milk.)
- 1/2 cup hemp seeds
- 2-3 cups distilled water (use less water for creamier, thicker milk)
- 2 pitted Medjool dates, to sweeten (optional)
- Pinch salt (optional)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- There is no need to soak the hemp seeds.
- Simply add the ingredients together and blend for less than a minute on a high speed blender or until the required consistency.
- Pour and enjoy!
- Hemp milk will last for up to 4-5 days when refrigerated.
- There really is no reason to strain the milk but if you wish to do so, strain through a muslin cloth, nut milk bag or even a clean t-shirt.
- For flavoured milk, add any natural ingredients of your choice.
- For instance, for chocolate milk, add 1-2 tbsp. of raw cocao powder.
To end, not all bandwagons are meant to be jumped on.
Not all massly followed opinions are meant to be agreed with.
Before being LEAD to believe in something, ask yourself WHY and do your research.
This must not only apply to veganism but EVERYTHING.
