Harvard Declares Milk and Dairy NOT Part of a Healthy Diet:The Harvard School of Public Health sent a strong message to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and nutrition experts everywhere with the recent release of its “Healthy Eating Plate” food guide.

Here is a trailer to a new movie coming out callGot the Facts on Milk?". I will post the full Documentary as soon as I can, but go see it in theatres if it's playing near you so we can support them :) Make Vegan Milks yourself! (Just see the easy, awesome recipe below).
You can use raw, unsalted cashews or almonds for this recipe.
1/2 cup (or more if you like it creamier) raw soaked almonds or raw (unroasted) cashews
3 or 4 Tablespoons raw agave nectar (or raw sugar)
4 cups water
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or scrapings from a vanilla bean (optional)
Put the ingredients in a blender for a couple of minutes and pour it through a sieve if it is made with almonds- (you don't need to filter the cashew milk because the cashew are soft and turn into cream easily). Use a sieve with larger holes at first to catch the bigger pieces of nuts and then pour it through a finer one so it will be smooth.
Use this milk to replace any recipe that calls for milk, or chill it and drink as is. I love it so much! I make milk shakes by adding bananas, ice, cinnamon and clove powder to the blender.
