For almost my entire life, I’ve had a glass of skim milk at dinner. It was a staple in my family, and I thought that it was an integral part of a healthy daily diet.
Turns out that while there are healthy nutrients in milk, there’s also a lot of sugar, and there’s the negative impact on the environment. So last year I replaced dairy milk with oat milk, and I haven’t looked back.
Why oat milk? I tried almond milk and coconut milk, but both tasted just a little too weird for me. When I first tasted oat milk, however, I liked it instantly. It tasted like the milk remaining in a bowl of granola cereal after you’ve eaten the granola.
To add to the good taste, I just learned that of the dairy milk alternatives, oat milk appears to be most sustainable and ethical option. That wasn’t my goal when making the switch, but I’m elated that it’s a win-win situation.
