    Just curious...does coconut milk have a lot of calcium in it?

    I wouldn't pay $20 (but if it is the only organic milk you are able to get, I would pay it before giving my DD regular milk)! I buy my organic milk at BJs and it costs 2.99 for half a gallon (I also keep my eyes open for sales at Shaws and then buy 4 or 5 half gallons). I still think that it is expensive but worth it to not take in all the hormones and pesticides.

    Yes, I am. The United Arab Emirates to be exact...

    I've decided to skip milk for now.

    I can imagine why milk is so expensive... I'm sure it has to be shipped from some crazy place. Probably no local farms there! I've been to that general area of the world, and I know everything has to come from very far away.

    Do you have extra milk? Consider donating!

    Looks like 1/2 cup only has 2% of RDA. http://www.veganpeace.com/nutrient_i...uts_seeds2.htm

    I posted a link to an article with other ideas for calcium. We do bone broths almost every day. And tonight I tried sardines (with bones) mixed in my tuna salad. DD ate it!! I also like the canned pink salmon. The bones are soft enough to eat, and it's a pretty cheap way to get your omega 3's.

    If it was raw you could freeze it. Not sure about pasteurized. But you could do something else, like make yogurt or kefir with it...If that would be worthwhile.

    By the way, are you mad at me??
