Yesterday's responses about cereal got me thinking about milk. Not surprisingly. It occurred to me that people have very strong opinions about milk. For instance, growing up my family always drank 2% milk. Except my mom, who always drank the powdered skim kind. She still does, actually. Then, when A. and I moved in together, he drank 2% for awhile, too, even though he's a whole milk kinda guy. He only drank the 2% because I was the one doing the grocery shopping. Left to his own devices, he always goes for whole milk. Or, even better, heavy cream.
At some point, I gave in and now we just drink whole milk all the time. It's not exactly a hardship, you know? I haven't had 2% milk in awhile, but I suspect it would not be so tasty to me now.
What say you, poppets? Skim, 2%, whole, chocolate? Which milk does your body good?
