goats milk?

any thoughts. I am dairy free. I hate the taste. But I saw some lady on youtube who claimed it helped her MS. I know it has selenium, helps with copper absorption, and is similar to human milk. I think being dairy free has been central to my good health. I follow the Swank diet by limited animal fats (not oils or healthy fats so much). Anybody drink this stuff?

Nice pasta alternitive

I know folks are always looking for an alternitive to wheat pasta in their diet. For years we have been using rice & corn pastas, which are good, but we have come across something even healthier: spirilized zuccini (summer squash). You can buy a very cool gadget called a spiralizer that will turn zuccini and summer squash into longs strands of pasta like material. Just use it raw or briefly boiled, put some tomato sauce ...
