Are you a cows milk drinker? I have been all of my life. Milk, yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, hard cheese I love them all. Cannot imagine oatmeal, cake and cookies without milk. Excellent source of potassium. When you think about it, it seems like an unlikely food item for humans. I was raised on whole milk, fresh from a local farmer for .25 cents a gallon, It always had a 3 inch thick layer of cream floating on top. I have worked my way down to drinking 1% and enjoy it as much as whole milk. Got Milk?

Agreed.

People that can't properly digest milk need to learn to be more "tolerant"

I don't particularly care to drink milk, unless it's a rare occasion when I'm eating Oreos or something. I much prefer all the other milk products such as cheeses and heavy cream. I use heavy cream in a lot of stuff. Oatmeal, cream-of-wheat, soups, etc. They're all better with heavy cream.

I don't like the taste of milk at all, but I do like most dairy products: yogurt, cottage cheese, mild cheeses, etc.

My mother was lactose intolerant most of her life and took a pill called lactaid which allowed her to drink milk, have milk toast or a glass of milk. When Dave got sick, for some reason, he got lactose intolerant and the smoothies that I was making for him actually made him sicker. Lactaid didn't help. Needless to say, that was all of the smoothies in this house.

Whenever we had morning company they would be asked "Do you want cow's milk or canned milk in your coffee?"

I've spent the last 40 years drinking a gallon of milk in 3-5 days.Every meal and snack.
Last year my Doc told me it's tougher for older folks to digest.
I've cut back to 1/2 gallon a week and now buy 1 1/2% rather than whole milk.Getting used to finding places to enjoy Cashew milk.

Milk sugar is "lactose." This is a combination of two smaller sugar molecules, one glucose and one galactose.
There's evidence that humans in general developed a lactose intolerance as they grew up.
Being mammals, the young have milk digestive capability.
Somewhere back about 10,000 years ago, a rare random genetic mutation allowed adults to continue to consume milk (and digest both the lactose and the galactose.)

Lactose intolerance and galactosemia are still two presentations of our genetic heritage.

We are not a milk-buying family, or a cereal buying family, either. Only a pint for a recipe maybe twice a year or so. We take our dairy in cheese and yogurt and occasional whipped cream, but have no interest in drinking a glass of milk.

I like milk with every meal.

Jack LaLane was a famous exercise instructor, lived to be 95, and was in dang good shape until very near the end..
Encouraged people NOT to drink milk, reminding us that we are the ONLY species on Earth which regularly consumes the milk of another species.

From HIS perspective, that was downright ODD!

My mom lived to be 91, drank milk whenever the heck she wanted to.
For several years, we got our milk in quart mason jars, unpasteurized, from a farmer two blocks down the street.

A breakfast of buckwheat pancakes is never complete without a glass of milk at the very end.
Also, I do use milk with the dry mix, about half and half, for the batter.

I don't want a piece of chocolate pie if there isn't any milk.

A milk memory. I took Army basic training at Ft Jackson S.C. in June and July. It was miserably hot. Up to 100 F. everyday. At chow time their would be a long line of trainees standing at the milk dispenser to get refills of cold, refreshing milk.  Just could not get enough of it in that heat.

Sheenjack, my father grew up very poor and it was not until he was in the Navy that he tasted whole milk for the first time. His mother had always served a half glass of milk mixed with a half glass of tap water, and he thought that was how the world drank milk! He drank a LOT of milk in service, and always considered it a treat after that. No skim for him, he wanted the real deal.

I was fascinated a few years ago when I learned that lactose intolerance varies greatly by race.  Studies show that people from Africa and Asia have lactose intolerance levels of 75% to 95%.  The majority of them cannot process lactose.  While northern European peoples only have lactose intolerance levels of 18% to 26%.  Almost the complete opposite from Africans/Asians.

Chocolate milk. I drink half a litre at breakfast every day. Keeps my bones strong and my tummy nicely rounded.
