    Poll: Re: which is better? almond, rice, or oat milk

    Rice milk gets my vote. I actually prefer it to soya. I tried almond milk once and I didn't like it. One day I'll buy a carton of oat milk and give that one a try too.

    I bought a tub of Sheese the other day and I think I prefer Tofutti. The two have a very similar taste but Sheese is a bit too salty for me.

    Re: Too little salt? Too much salt?

    It's amazing how small the recommended daily intake is. I'm quite fond of salt and even though I don't eat processed food very much, I use a lot in my cooking and as a seasoning.

    I have no idea if spelt is better for you than other flours. It's been a while since I've used it. I have made spelt bread in the past and I think it tastes much better than wheat.
