Day 36 of 365 | The Carnivore Diet Experiment!

Hi friends: It’s day 36 of 365 of the carnivore diet experiment! It’s Monday and it’s cold. My husband has just put my winter tires on my car. So this is just a remember that winter is just around the corner. Say it ain’t so.

Yesterday we bought some goat cheese and goat milk. I”m really interested in adding dairy back into my diet to see if I can tolerate it. I know I can’t tolerate cow’s milk but let’s see if I can tolerate goat milk products. Humans are the only mammals that consume milk as adults. But for millions of people across the world, dairy products make them ill. They suffer nausea, cramps, bloating, gas or diarrhea about 30 minutes to two hours after eating or drinking foods containing the milk sugar, lactose.

According to the Asia Food Journal, it’s a particular problem for people of Asian and African descent. For example, the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse says up to 75 per cent of African-Americans and American Indians, and 90 per cent of Asian-Americans are affected. Cow’s milk contains about five per cent lactose. No other animals produce the substance. Scientists have long been puzzled why some people can’t tolerate it. But researchers at Cornell University say they now understand. It took a lot of work. Dr Paul Sherman and his assistant compiled data on lactose intolerance from 270 indigenous African and Eurasian populations in 39 countries, from southern Africa to northern Greenland. They discovered that harsh climates and dangerous diseases were to blame. When populations were not able to raise cattle safely or economically, milk availability dropped. Over time, when people stopped drinking milk, their genes changed. As a result, they lost their ability to digest milk-based products. Dr. Sherman, a professor of neurobiology and behaviour, reports that lactose intolerance is common in extreme environments. If your ancestors lived in very hot or very cold places, then they wouldn’t have kept dairy cattle. The climate would be wrong for cows. Economics and safety were also factors. Prior to 1900, Africa and many parts of Asia had deadly cattle diseases. ‘This is a spectacular case of cultural evolution,’ Dr. Sherman says. ‘In this case, the domestication of cattle has guided our biological evolution.’

I have also read that goat’s milk is easier to digest. Goat’s milk has smaller fat globules as well as higher levels of medium-chain fatty acids. This allows the body to digest the protein more smoothly and completely than when digesting cow’s milk.

I tried goat milk for the first time yesterday. As for the taste, goat milk is definitely different than cows milk. It has a strong flavor. My daughter hates it. I would say it will take some time to get use to it but the goat cheese I tried was delicious.

Today I decided I would make myself a warm matcha and goat milk drink. It tasted delicious. This goat milk could actually pass for cow’s milk.

Matcha and Goat milk tea recipe:

In your sauce pan.
Add one teaspoon of matcha green tea powder to one cup of goat milk.
Bring everything to a boil in a large pot, being sure to stir frequently to thoroughly mix the diverse ingredients completely.
Use a whisk to stir.
Pour into your favourite cup.

Please share your goat milk recipes that do not include sugar. I’m curious to see how I will react to the goat milk. In the past diary has contributed to my acne breakouts. I will keep you posted.

Tonight’s dinner was ribeye steak!
