Dairy Does You More Good Than You Might Think
Article by Heddi Bundt
EDVILLE—You’ve likely heard about milk producers in New Zealand adding some sort of something to their milk to help people stay focused and relieve stress. But, truthfully, I can’t remember the last time I drank a glass of milk, and the amount I put in my tea would barely add up to cup over the course of an entire month.
But what it did make me think of is the wonderful vacations Herr Bundt and I spent in New Zealand basking on the white sands of Papamoa. My darling husband and I are followers of Freikörperkultur, (translation: Free Body Culture). And why not? Nothing feels better that the warmth of the hot sun on naked skin. There’s nothing like a “nakation” to reset and refresh. And there’s nothing like a milk bath or a full-body yogurt massage from the cabana boy to lift one’s spirits.
I know that many Gazette readers might find this lifestyle a bit shocking but it is so wonderfully liberating. So, please, bare with me.
Oh! Herr Bundt laughed at that pun. “Clever girl” he grinned!
So the Kiwis are half-right. You can be a very naughty girl (or boy) with your dairy products—and I encourage it—but I’m not sure that drinking milk in New Zealand or anywhere else is likely to make you calmer and more focused.
Now it’s true that, for the time being at least, we’re all stuck at home with no beach and no cabana boy in sight. But that doesn’t change the fact that you’re going to get a lot more out of disrobing, covering yourself in amaretto coffee creamer and dancing naked in your own home than you ever will drinking super-milk with your Oreos. That’s the naked truth.
