Here's something I learned by accident recently.

I've heard off and on that people who need more energy and strength should take whey protein powder.  Well, I don't like supplements, and would rather get my nutrients from food if possible.   On a related note, I save the whey from cheesemaking, and then add it here and there in rice dishes, casseroles, etc., but usually never try to convert it into powder, as whey contains salts, proteins, and other nutrients, all nourishing.

The other day for some reason I decided to drink an entire glass of whey from a yogurt cheese making session, and I was astonished at how much energy I had the rest of the day!  No kidding!  I had several "fence post projects" to do that day, and I was walking around carrying the "fence-post-pounder" in one hand, and a steel fence post or two in the other hand like it was nothing.  I felt like the "Strong Man in the Circus" that day.  It was almost funny.  In fact, it was.

My true story, and I think there is definitely some truth to the fact that whey can help a person be or feel stronger.

Wow, ilinda!!
I've never tried it. I mean not in the natural state. What a great thing!
Decades ago, an old German naturopath told me to eat whey. I wasn't that impressed. Whey is added to stuff... He probably meant get the real stuff...

Sorry for the delay.  Yes,  it was from raw, organic goat milk.  I'm about to partake again today after having made cottage cheese last night/this morning.

Fascinating to ponder chlorophyll in the chloroplasts floating through our bodies!

One World Whey is a whey protein powder that has been devised and produced with true knowledge of the power of whey in mind. Not only has the whey been dried at low temperature so the amino acids, bacteria and enzymes aren't destroyed (by high temperatures) but the cows producing the milk are munching on growing grass; why should you care?
Well, Weston Price's research shows that milk and butter that comes from cows that have grazed on grass in it's growing phase has special attributes that offer amazing results. And the people at One World Whey have taken such research into account and used it in formulating their whey.

I myself have experienced a significant increase in strength and energy since i started using One World Whey. I mean, i've been trying out all kinds of things and i'm not 100% sure that my significant increase in energy comes from using One World Whey, but i'm pretty sure it's (at least) part of that.

Your energy levels might well be due to the One World Whey.

The whey I use is still liquid, and freshly drained from the cheese making process, made from milk that is raw and 100% grassfed.   I have dried my own whey several times, but it is not "whey protein" only, as it is everything in whey except the water that slowly evaporates during the very-long drying process.  It takes forever, so I'll continue to drink the liquid whey.

But for those who do not or cannot make their own yogurt, whey powder does seem reasonable.

ilinda had mentioned bone broth too, awhile back...
It turns out it has many healing properties... beef or chicken bones...
I posted an article from Dr. Axe about bone broth, here:

On the rare occasion that we eat chicken, I gnaw on the ends of the bones, even stealing bones from hubby's plate.  It's amazing how soft the one end of each bone seems, while the other seems too hard for our teeth. 

You can slowly gnaw and gnaw and get not only that softer part, presumably part of the joint, but the longer you work over the bone, the more marrow you can get.  Now, doesn't that sound like some cave-person talk?  LOL

As a child I instinctively grawed on the ends of chicken bones...
I remember once, I was about six, Mother told me, that's good for you, go ahead and eat that.
