Savemart is just an inexpensive supermarket around here that replaced Alberton's.

Well the noname local dairy that doesn't do any advertising is cheaper than the bigger name that does do more advertising.

The bigger name stores charge more for their milk but probably also advertise more and so on.

I only started to start drinking milk heavily last spring mainly because I was broke and needed protein and calories cheaply and I really wanted to work on rebuilding my strength. Before then, for years it was only then and now but I was starting to grab smaller containers for a quick lunch or breakfast.

Drinking milk will make me spit up a little more gooey from time to time, especially when sick but nothing real bad. When I'm sick, I have a hard time forcing myself to eat or cook and that also really affects my recovery. Milk helps in that sense. What's a little more phleghm when I'm hacking my lungs as it is.

I've found that I'm sometimes feeling a bit nauseous now. Not too bad, but I've got that feeling in my throat that says there's something down there waiting to come out. What's concerning is that I've gotten this feeling when I am beginning some sort of physical activity - whether it's a workout (mine are all strength-based nowadays, no gut-wrenching metcon) or simply a long, moderately draining activity (eg. building equipment and cleaning the garage). I haven't yet managed to link its occurrence to the time at which I've had milk, but this has only popped up very recently.

A friend of mine recommended a bromelain supplement - something from a pineapple that's supposed to ease digestion. Any opinions here on that? I've got no experience whatsoever with probiotics, lactase, and the like.

And as an update, I'm now up to a 1/2 gallon a day and I've rediscovered the wondrousness that is the vanilla milkshake. I hate to turn my back on Paleo after I've felt so good on it for so long, but I'm feeling equally fine now, and until that changes, milk is here to stay.

Thanks, all of you, for the support.
