Organic milk lasts longer because producers use a different process to preserve it in order to meet FDA compliance. According to the Northeast Organic Dairy Producers Alliance, the milk needs to stay fresh longer because organic products often have to travel farther to reach store shelves since it is not produced throughout the country.
The process that gives the milk a longer shelf life is called ultrahigh temperature (UHT) processing or treatment, in which milk is heated to 280 degrees Fahrenheit (138 degrees Celsius) for two to four seconds, killing any bacteria in it.

We do not recommend cow’s milk in general—whether organic or non-organic. I would say organic is better since the cows are not given any antibiotics or hormones but plant-based nut milks will be a much better option overall.

The body has an amazing way of doing what it needs to when you give it the right ingredients. Even if that is gaining weight. Superfoods like wheatgrass, spirulina/chlorella, and cod liver oil are essential for getting and keeping the body healthy and energized.

We would also recommend you include a variety of nuts, dried fruits (like figs, dates) and healthy seeds like flax/chia into your diet. Trail mix is a great snack to take on the go and will provide your body with a healthy dose of fats, protein, carbs and energy (the perfect package). Flax/chia can be added to oatmeal, cereal, salads or smoothies. Hemp seeds are fantastic if you are looking for a healthier protein source. Hemp seeds are super high in absorbable protein unlike processed whey protein powders that are very acidic on the body. Try incorporating oatmeal with nuts, dried fruits and cacao for breakfast.
