Not sure how many people are taking part of this, but Donna over at Midlife Farmwife had mentioned doing a 24-hour Raw Milk Fast in order to recognize Michael Schmidt's hunger strike protesting Canada's position on Raw Milk sales and Cow Shares.
So, being that I pretty much drink raw milk on a daily basis, as well as serve it to my 2 1/2 year old daughter, I figured that we could take part in the “protest”. I’m going to be doing the actual milk fasting part, but of course I’m not going to make Rhiannon fast. She’ll be encouraged to drink all the milk she wants today, which shouldn’t be too difficult as she also enjoys a nice, cold cup of milk with her meals.
And since I didn’t figure Paul would be up to a milk fast, I made him a quiche for breakfast (which uses lots o’milk) and for dinner I’m going to make something that requires milk. Even if it’s just cookies. Gott’a have lots of milk with cookies, right? Although that would just be torturing myself. Maybe I'll save the cookies for after the Raw Milk Fast.
I’ll leave you with some pictures celebrating our Raw Milk Day:
