I can't find any fat free rice milk or any other kind of fat free milk substitute, even at Whole Foods where they recently discontinued offering fat free soy milk. However, if you really want a fat free soy milk, you can buy in bulk on Amazon.

I've noticed that the whole fat free craze (if you like) seems to have passed in the market place with the rise of Atkins, and now it appears that eating as much blubber as you like is fine as long as its the right kind...but I digress.

My point was that I had decided to switch to unsweetened Almond Milk after noticing in Dr Esselstyn's seminars that he promotes it. This seemed odd to me at first since the fat content is quite high, but of course its intended as an ingredient, and not meant to be taken in large quantity.

Recently however, Silk has come out with Cashew Milk including an unsweetened version. This product has fewer calories, and although the percentage of fat is the same, you end up with less fat intake for the same amount as Almond Milk.

I mention the unsweetened versions because Esselstyn at least has been pushing people away from sugar as much as possible. I saw in a seminar of his that apparently sugar in quantity can cause arterial irritation in the same way animal protein or fat can based on the Brachial Artery test.

So, check out Cashew Milk for your recipe needs. I tried it in Dr. Pinkney's very nice cream of tomato soup recipe, and it worked like a charm!

As an aside, this board should be busy busy, but doctors are just not advising their patients appropriately, and the media doesn't help. Its really quite tragic.
