Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Literally the only reduced-fat substance we allow in the house is semi-skimmed milk, and then only because it's the best thing for a mug of tea. For years we used it for our cappuccinos (we have a bean-to-cup coffee machine with built-in milk frother). Recently I've discovered that full-fat milk is better for cappuccinos: more body and more reliable froth. If Mrs Steve is out I just make meself a very large espresso. We don't use milk on cereal. We've taken to using Alpro unsweetened oat "milk." You can usually find it for a quid a litre somewhere or other on special offer. The unsweetened light soya equivalent is very nice but I've taken to worrying as to whether I should be using soya, the way the world is going. I doubt whether those tetrapaks are ethical, come to think of it.
