Quote of the Day
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
The Month of June is National Dairy Month! Our Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day is looking at the Dairy Guidelines and Tips that the USDA recommends.
Kerry's recommendation for milk products would be to definitely purchase organic milk products only. Non-organic milk can be from dairy cows that have been fed genetically modified corn and other feed. This does not agree with them. They must be given antibiotics to avoid sickness. They may also be given hormones to increase their milk production. You are drinking these hormones and antibiotics. Avoid them by purchasing organic milk products is my lifestyle solution! And eat your greens!
Find out more about the Dairy Guidelines from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
