I'm the same way. I drink 8th continent light original soymilk plain or in my oat bran and in smoothies. It has 7g of protein per cup and only 50 calories. And the best part is that they sell it at walmart!


all those years it wasn't IBS - it was celiac!

Rice milk is okay, but some (most?) of them don't have as much calcium as soy milks. Just about every soy milk I've tried tastes different. Silk is decent, but my fave is the lite 8th Continent. (I tried the lite vanilla...could really taste much different.) It's really good with oatmeal, good with cold cereal, and I will drink it straight, too. But of course, your milage may vary.

PS- When I lived in the middle of nowhere in Iowa, even the little grocery in our town carried Silk, as I recall.

Soy or rice milk (plain) is really gross when you drink it straight. Adding it to cereal is OK. Making a smoothie with some fruit is tolerable. The flavored stuff is good.

I miss real milk, though. Imagine a huge milkshake with whip cream and a cherry... OH, YUM, but no no!

It's never too late to be what you might have been.

Personally, I HATED soymilk when I first tried it, because I kept getting the really, REALLY nasty brands.

So Good plain is the best, in my opinion. The vanilla and omega three are just GROSS GROSS GROSS!

If you're having it with cereal, it's perfect.

I prefer Rice or Almond milk, personally. It's funny, though...I started topping cereal with fresh fruit puree and skipping the whole "wetting" the dry food with any of the above and of all the methods, I prefer topping the cereal with fresh fruit puree! But, re: dry cereal the traditional way, almond milk. Keep in mind though that my cereal of choice is puffed millet or puffed rice when I do the cereal thing. I've even used diluted fresh fruit juice. Sometimes a vanilla flavoured almond or rice milk is funky.
