Did you know?

... tha maple syrup has more calcium than milk by volume and more potassium than bananas by weight? About 21 mg per tbsp of calcium! It is also terribly high in potassium (35 mg/tbsp).

This is where money outweighs facts when it comes to food marketing. They say that milk does your body good, but in truth, over consumption of milk causes all sorts of problems, and many shouldn't drink the stuff after the age of 4 years old at all! (Between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant.)

Amazing what the media can put into our heads that make us put things into our bodies.

Many lactose intolerant people don't tolerate the stuff called "milk" in a grocery store. Many have no problem with real milk. As long as I stick to real milk I have no problems.

What passes for real food these days is a shame. Keep up the good work!
