Hello! I have recently started using almond/coconut milk instead of organic skim dairy milk. I'm thinking of trying to get pregnant, and I want to make sure that I am making the best health choice for myself and my baby. Does anyone know which milk is the best choice? Can you get enough calcium from coconut/almond? What's best for breast feeding? I'm also worried that some of the ingredients in almond/coconut milk sound a little unnatural (gellan gum, xantham gum, etc...). When I "drank" skim, it was from cows who had NOT been treated with rBST. And when I say "drank", I mean that I used it in cereal or mochas. I've never really been a fan of dairy milk, so I don't actually drink full glasses of it (I'm not lactose intolerant, I just don't like the taste). Any advice would be great. Thanks so much!
