The last few months have seen me take on a new way of eating, nothing faddy, just a return to consistently eating well, sensibly and healthily, with treats in moderation. And guess what? I feel flipping fantastic.

Look, I’ll be honest (good job being Honest Mum hey) and state that I live by the 80/20 rule- and it makes me truly happy. I don’t feel guilty over a slice of cake when I fancy it and nothing is banned or off limits. I pack my diet with fruit and veg opting for lots of plant-based meals where possible and tonnes of fish and seafood.  We also eat a lot of oats and pulses and other slow releasing carbs too.  All good!

Lately, I’ve been researching milk and on discovering a2 Milk™ last year, it’s now all we drink milk-wise as a family. It’s delicious and lighter than other milk without any residue taste and what’s more, it’s stopped my dairy-related rashes from appearing.

Thousands of others have noticed the difference too.

Read what a2 Milk™ say,

‘a2 Milk™ is healthy cows’ milk with a difference. Gentle on sensitive tummies, easy to digest and less likely to trigger symptoms often associated with milk intolerance.  
Originally all cows’ produced milk with only the A2 protein. Over time, some cows evolved and started to produce the A1 protein in their milk that can cause digestive problems. Fortunately, there are still plenty of A2 cows out there and it’s these cows that The a2 Milk Company™ specially select to make their a2 Milk™’.

We’ve been drinking it for months and whilst some other dairy can result in urticaria-style rashes on me, they’ve completely gone since I’ve switched to this.

My kids love it too!

…And, just as I thought a2 Milk™ couldn’t get any better, new research has been published revealing it significantly increases the natural production of the master antioxidant, glutathione, which is associated with a range of health benefits, such as the regeneration of immune cells and brain development.

The study, which was published in the latest issue of the UK based Nutrition Journal, showed that those who drank only a2 Milk™ had twice the levels of glutathione compared to those who drank milk containing the A1 protein.


I literally can’t recommend this milk enough.

    I love this milk because it doesn’t upset my stomach.

    I already shop at Waitrose so this gift card would be a wonderful way to stock up at Christmas (and I have a load of money off vouchers for Waitrose because I have a Waitrose card)

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about a2, I always seem to feel “not quite right” if I’ve had a milk dish, or cereal, so i really should give this a try. Would love to win as I there is so much I’d love to get in John Lewis – think i’d treat me instead of Christmas presents ;))

  8. Natalie Gillham

    My daughter has only just found out she is allergic to dairy and now avoids it, but I’ve been meaning to try and alternative milk for her and I’ll definitely be trying A2 milk now thanks to your review. If I win the voucher I would buy some treats for Christmas that we wouldn’t normally be able to afford, thanks for the chance x

    It is a very interesting concept, and I would love to give the milk a try! In fact I think I will do a bit more research on it because I suffer with health problems myself, and anything is worth a try!
    I would love the voucher too, it would really help me out at this time of year when money is very tight!
