Coconut milk: is very tasty alternative for milk. Many people have allergic reactions on dairy products.

We should be concerned about our reserves of magnesium, because diet that we practicing very often lacking with magnesium (due to processed food and soil depletion). Stress is additional factor for losing magnesium. Dark chocolate is excellent stress reliever, and also supports digestion.

Dairy products like cottage cheese, whole milk, ice cream, and other cheeses are great source of calcium, fats, and proteins.
