Even if you are lactose intolerant, or vegan, or have sworn off dairy for other reasons, there is nothing that symbolizes easy affluence and security more than milk! Add cookies to the mix and you have America par excellence. Those of us who don’t drink milk can celebrate the day with a tall glass of their favorite milk substitute.
Does anyone remember that scene in the classic movie, “The Big Chill” where one of the husbands was unable to sleep so he got up in the middle of the night and made himself a bologna sandwich and a glass of milk? Hhhhmmm - comfort food!
Let us see how many different ways we can use milk. Obviously, we can drink milk. But do we drink it straight or do we mix it with something else?
Certainly there are!
The domestication of animals that give milk was one of the greatest achievements in world history. In the west, we mostly use cow’s milk but in Mediterranean areas, they just as often use goat’s milk or sheep’s milk. The chemical makeup of goat’s milk is said to be the closest of the animal milks to human mother’s milk.
In the 1950’s butter was considered a non-healthy food because of the cholesterol scare that began then. Today, the fat that primarily replaced milk, margarine, is a dreaded trans-fat, considered to be a very unhealthy fat and margarine has been replaced in many kitchens by…butter!
There is even a modern diet of sorts in which people eat fat to be healthy. One of the mainstays of the Keto diet is butter and other high-fat forms of milk!
Many people have stopped consuming animal flesh products. Most of these people have not given up dairy products simply because it is too difficult to do so. Milk is truly a staple in many people’s diet!
Ironically, milk is not used in traditional Chinese cuisine because most Chinese people are lactose intolerant. Here in the west, the vast majority of people still enjoy milk and milk-based food and drink almost every day!
We, at Jackpot Capital casino, always say that you should never play casino games for real money when you have had some alcohol. There are so many milk based drinks that you can easily sip one of them while you play and save the alcoholic drinks for later! What's more healthy and down-home that a big, tall glass of milk while you slot away at Jackpot Capital?!?
