Nourishing it: In spite of what you read online, your food choices don't have that much to do with your health. Milk is a good source of protein and calcium especially, if you can tolerate it (and many people get sick from lactose.) Your physician may restrict your milk consumption, or require you to stay very well hydrated, if you pass calcium kidney stones. Enjoy your milk and try to get the pastuerized kind.

Milk : The milk is nourishing you but too much milk and milk products may constipate you. Everything in moderation!
