Its hard to get over childhood traumas but time has a way of helping us to overcome and heal. With time I have discovered:
- The taste of powdered milk has improved since I was a kid. There are several companies that make an ok powdered milk (Bob’s Red Mill, Nestle, Great Value). Here is a link to an article Utah Preppers wrote about which powdered milk taste best.
- It is an important staple in adding valuable nutrients to food storage meals. Powdered milk typically has Calcium, Vitamin D, and other nutrients which nourish and strengthen bones.
- It is a good source of protein and calories. It’s one of the less-expensive means of adding protein to your food storage. Protein & calories can keep your body strong during hard times so having an easy way to add both to every meal is worth considering.
- There are so many better uses for powdered milk than drinking it. One of my mother-in-law’s friends, whose name is Terry Clark, shares her message: “Don’t Drink the Milk!” at Preparedness Fairs. She has discovered ways to turn powdered milk into something YUMMY. Her recipes are linked at the bottom of this post.
