The move in diets from dairy and meat will have significant impacts on what farmers grow. Traveling around the Mid West recently it was clear that a vast amount of land is used in the production of our dairy and meat production.
So what will bring about this dramatic change--the rapid increase in non-dairy and non-meat products.
The growth in non-dairy milk alternatives from nut based products is rapidly growing if you go into any grocery store. If you haven't tried these alternative products you are missing out on healthier products that can have a very similar texture and taste to milk. My favorites are almond and soy milk. The texture of soy milk is probably the closest to regular milk and certainly better than skim milk. Almond milk is better if you want to stay with a lower calorie drink. I even mix those two drinks.
