We know that healthy drinks are important for our body. Here are some suggestions for you when you are looking for something to quench your thirst:

Milk

healthy drinks suggestion - milkHealthy milk drink is a good source of calcium (good for our bones), and contains high levels of vitamin B2 and vitamin B12 (good for our circulatory and nervous system). There are various milk brands that can be obtained at the market, and if you  noticed, there are 3 types of milk: pasteurized, homogenized, and raw milk. Pasteurization had become standardized for processing milk in most countries, since this process heats the milk and destroys any bacteria in it, making it safer to drink. Homogenization process breaks down the fat molecules in milk to disperse them more evenly, so that creaming on the top of milk doesn't occur. Some may said that taking fresh raw milk that comes directly from the cow or goat will be better for health, but there is occasional bacteria contamination of raw milk that posses a potential health risk.

Non-Dairy Milk

Many of the available non-dairy milk, such as soy milk, almond milk, hemp milk and rice milk can be easily substituted for dairy in most recipes. However, rice milk and almond milk are less similar to cow's milk than soy or hemp milk in terms of important nutrients like protein or calcium. Also, when you approaches non-dairy milk products, try to avoid those with high carb and sugar.

Vegetables and/or Fruits Juices
