I’ve never been a huge fan of milk, even when I was a kid. The taste just never got me to say, “WANT NOW PLEASE.” But lately, I’ve been reading so much about the health benefits of raw milk, including its medicinal applications with eczema, I decided to buy some.
So of course I’ll need to make some chocolate chip cookies tonight, for my health. We’ll see how it goes.
I also made a salad for dinner tonight with CSA veggies and homemade caesar dressing with a raw egg. Both of these things have lead my doctor friend to believe that I will die tonight.
An excerpt of our text conversation:
Me: [sends her picture] If I die tonight as I’m sure you think I will, tell Sallie Mae I said “suck it!”
Her: Is it pasteurized?? If not, DON’T drink it!!!
Me: Not buying into your corporate-sponsored lies!
Her: It’s not lies! It’s science! You will surely perish!
Me: People have been drinking raw milk for THOUSANDS of years. Why shouldn’t I trust that?
Her: And THEY DIED!!!!!!!
Me: Everyone dies. It only started killing people when cows were taken off their natural diet of grass and fed bullshit corn.
Her: No ma’am. Incorrect. People died long before that. In the old country.
Me: You know Europeans didn’t bathe!
I told her that she could have my vanilla cinnamon drop biscuit and coconut milk pancakes recipes. Because I am giver.
