I am trying to be more mindful of what I eat, knowing that many animals suffer all around the world as a result of my conveniences. The planet also suffers from deforestation and loss of habitats and biodiversity in the name of agriculture. It's an ongoing research project and I'm still making my way through the decisions that will be right for me and others.
As part of starting plant-based diet again last fall, I'm tasting some varieties of plant-based milks. Almond milk - yes. Soy milk - yes. Flax milk - blecchh. There are a few other varieties to try, including pea, hemp, oat, and macadamia nut. I never realized there is added sugar in a lot of these products as well as thickeners, so I need to read the labels too. It also depends who you ask. PETA's article was very favorable towards plant-based milk; Rodale's Organic Life article was more balanced, but didn't take into account the deleterious consequences of the dairy industry.
