You'll know if you have a milk allergy or not. If not
raw homegrown organic milk is excellent food, as good
as hg o meat, eggs, etc. Not a thing wrong with it.
Especially good as you can make cheeses, yoghurt, kefir
and other products from it. A conservative, moderate
diet containing animal protein from dairy and eggs
and no meat is a healthy alternative.
Here's a great book by Beatrice Trum Hunter:
"Fact Book on Yoghurt, Kefir and Other Milk Cultures"
and by Bill Mollison:
"The Book of Ferment and Human Nutrition"
These contain information on processing dairy products.
In the same vein but not covering any dairy foods is:
Edited by Eliot Coleman:
"Keeping Food Fresh, Old World Techniques and Recipes,
The Gardeners and Farmers of Terre Vivante"
Dave should be interested in that one.
For vegs and everyone else all info on macrobiotic foods and food
preparation (miso, tofu, natto, tamari, various fermented
and pickled foods) is of immense value and is health-restoring.
Search the Web for miso, tofu and macrobiotic and you will
find plenty including many good online mail-order companies.
If you have a milk allergy eliminate it entirely from your diet.
Alternatives include soy cheese, soy milk and soy yoghurt
all as good (except the cheese) as their dairy counterparts.
