Raw Milk: Taste Test
Earlier this week, we explored the controversy surrounding raw milk, and where to buy it in Arizona. Today, I'll share my personal experience with the stuff.
As mentioned previously, many of the usual suspects don't sell raw milk, including Whole Foods, which sent us a statement explaining it discontinued selling it nationwide.
Luckily they didn't ask for a password, but still, I felt like I was on a bit of a secret mission. And a pricey one, too. The milk cost $12.50 a gallon, the only quantity available for purchase. Since my pickup truck doesn't have A/C, I was kindly given a couple of ice packs to put with the milk, which was wrapped in a large brown paper bag. This was all just to be extra safe, and make sure that nothing happened to it on the drive to a refrigerator.
With so much at my disposal, I decided to drink raw milk every day for a little over a week, to see what (if anything) would happen.
I must provide a bit of a disclaimer. While I was excited and intrigued by the concept, I'm not a raw food-eater. I do eat meat, and I don't consider myself especially health-conscious, aside from the fairly recent changes to my diet and nutrition as a way to lose weight and get in (slightly) better shape.
