    Default Almond Breeze at Costco?

    Does anyone know if Costco sell the Almond Breeze milk in the tetra boxes?

    I really like it. From everything I have read about milk I would much rather be drinking almond milk than cow milk. I looove the chocolate one and DH drinks the unsweetened regular with cereal. I don't recall seeing it at Costco but I'll check next time, it would be worth it for us to buy it in bulk, which is why I dont think I have seen it there... unless they just didn;'t have the unsweetened.

    We use it because we want a dairy alternative. I had colon cancer last year at a young age, and want to reduce anything digestively that may increase risk of recurrence. I didn't want to do soy because of the estrogen exposures/previous cancer risk.
    We prefer the taste of the almond milk over the rice and soy anyways. It has a creamier mouth feel to it, like a fuller fat milk. The boys have never noticed a difference.

    What is wrong with milk? Honest question, as I have no idea.

    Does the processing of the almond milk not mean it has more 'stuff' in it than natural milk?

    I need to buy milk today and I kinda would love to get off the cow's milk if there is a reason. Cow's milk grosses me out a bit.

    From what I've read about milk.... unless you're getting grain-fed, antibiotic-free, organic then you're getting whatver they put in the cow... antibiotics, growth hormone, etc.... doesn't sound too healthy. Plus I read when the udder gets infected they keep pumping so you're getting puss in your milk. Other than that, it's processed, the magnesium isn't enough for the calcium to be absorbed and head it actually leaches calcium from your body, not gives you calcium, and it's mucous-forming. If humans don't need mom's milk the rest of their life, why do we need cow's milk?


    (this info is what I found in my research I'm not saying it's 100% correct.)

    I want to get off cows milk, simply because it gross's me out a bit (I have too many vegan friends ). Also, almond milk has far less saturated fat and dosen't contain the hormones and antibiotics I'm trying to avoid.
    I don't know what it is about me though, the idea of buying soya or almond milk vs. cow scares me (like, it might taste really nasty or DD would refuse it and it would be a waste). I've even heard goats milk is far better for you but that just might push me too far! I'm odd that way.

    Another question then

    My YDD is 1 and it is recommend to give her the full fat milk. If it is so unhealthy why is it recommended to young children? Would the almond breeze be something I could give her or is it not full fat?

    I think this is because most doctor's don't really know anything about nutrition. I really have no idea about young children who need a lot of fat though.

    I have recently been doing lots of reading regarding nutrition and our western diet, and as a result also want to get my family away from cow's milk; the organic is way too much money for us.

    I didn't realize you could buy almond milk, I was just going to try to make almond milk, has anyone tried that before? I'm going to soak the almond's tonight and make it tomorrow for breakfast....I'll report back on the taste.

    I'm curious, what size are the containers in the six pack?

    I wouldn't switch a 1 year old to almond milk - it's not milk at all really, not milk from an animal. If you think that really a one year old should be nursing, 'naturally' speaking, and animal milk is the next best thing (no nursing related judgment intended, I'm talking about the biology and why it's different for an infant/toddler).

    The puss thing apparently is only in the US. Thank goodness.

    That said I got two litres of almond breeze at the health food store and I'm happy to not be drinking milk as it squicks me out.
