Excerpts:

If raw milk is so dangerous, why is it that you can buy raw milk anywhere, including out of vending machines within two blocks of the United Nations World Health Organization headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland? And why can you buy it everywhere else in Switzerland? Don’t those Swiss know they are putting their dairy industry in great danger?

Someone is going to get sick and, poof, that would be the end of the Swiss chocolate business. By the way, the Swiss, who have been consuming unpasteurized milk in those mountains for 1,000 years, have the second-longest life expectancy in the world after only Japan, another place where you can buy raw milk in stores.

And how about those foolish French? You know, the people with the lowest incidence of heart disease, the third-highest life expectancy and the highest consumption of raw milk in the Western world?

The French culture is famous for how it knows and appreciates good food. The French buy raw milk in supermarkets, at farmers markets, on street corners and out of vending machines all over the country every day of the year. Incidentally, the French dairy industry is even bigger than Wisconsin’s dairy industry. Take raw milk away from them, and you would have rioting in the streets.

No one has died from drinking raw milk in the United States in 50 years. Go ahead, Google it. And then Google the Swiss study of 16,000 children (Gabriela study) that revealed that children who drink raw milk are 48% less likely to have problems with allergies and asthma than those who are raised without it. Think about those numbers. How much would American mothers pay for a pill that reduced the chances of their children having these serious health problems by 50%? The drug companies would kill to have a drug like that.

There are 7 billion people on the planet, most of them raised on raw milk.

How to Make a Gluten Free Cheesecake

How to Make a Gluten Free Cheesecake

Cheesecakes are a classic dessert, with many different flavor variations and types. For those on a gluten free diet, finding a 100% gluten free cheesecake recipe that doesn’t skimp on flavor or texture, and still blows you away, can be a bit of a challenge. Many popular cheesecakes like the New York style use a bit of flour in the filling, and the classic graham crust is hard to replace. Even though gluten free grahams are available to purchase, they are loaded with highly processed ingredients and are better off not being touched. Meanwhile, the alternative, making them yourself, is extremely time consuming.

There is however, a very easy solution: make a shortbread crust and nix the gluten flours. Shortbread crusts are light, buttery, very quick and easy to make, and compliment any flavor of cheesecake. Here’s how you make one.

Raw honey is one of the healthiest sweeteners readily available for use in baking. Honey is a much better choice than processed sugar. Granulated sugar made from cane sugar is actually a natural product. However, most types of granulated sugars in the market go through a refining process which strips out most of the natural nutrients.

In addition, granulated sugar from sugar beets is more than likely from a GMO source. If you do use granulated sugar in your recipes, make sure it is organic cane sugar as close to its original source as possible, which is usually very dark and dry.

You’re better off using raw honey, which is a whole food that in its natural state needs no further refining. And its healthier too! The information here will show you how to replace sugar in your baked goods with raw honey.
