Has anyone here used a soymilk maker???

Strange question I know, but what else would you expect coming from me! hehe Thing is, I'm trying to go off of all dairy for awhile to see if it helps my running but the soymilk in the stores costs a fortune. I've been looking at the soy milk makers but they're expensive, sooooo.... I figured with this being an international forum and all maybe someone on here has experience with these things and can tell me if it's worth it to get one or not????

Thanks to all who reply!

try electrolites.electrolites replace salts that you have lost after (running...workout) also your stamina levels will improve in a short period of time.CREATINE...this stuff is fantastic (its legal) once the creatine is in your system your stamina levels will rocket through the roof(ideal for running...workout).down side is,its not cheap.regards rob

Re: Has anyone here used a soymilk maker???

Thanks for your reply, Rob, but I'm really looking more for a dairy substitute you know? When I get about 20 minute or so into a run I start to get congestion in my chest and I suspect it's from cow's milk. I've tried to go off of milk and buy soy to see if it makes a difference, but the soy milk is so expensive that I cannot buy it all the time. So I was wondering if one of these soy milk makers would solve the problem for me.

hehehehehe I don't take any supplements beyond a good multi-vitamin, but with my being a woman, calcium is always a concern for me you know? I eat alot of salad with spinach and junk, but I get most of my calcium from milk so that's why i need a good replacement. These soymilk makers look cool because you can make the milk fresh at home and you can use the bean curds to make tofu and stuff, but they're pretty pricey so I wanted to see if someone has experience with them and if they can tell me if it's worth my while.

Re: Has anyone here used a soymilk maker???

I haven't tried soymilk makers, but I am vegan, so I don't eat dairy at all. And I get calcium from other things, like almonds. Those are supposed to have a lot of calcium in them.

I also eat many green vegetables, and I used to eat soy based 'yoghurt' for breakfast with cereal. It's pretty good, but it has to be consumed in a few days after you've opened the package. I ended up throwing a lot away, because I didn't use all of it in time. Which became kinda expensive.

Here's a quote from Wikipedia's page on calcium:

"Others, such as vegans, avoid dairy products for ethical and health reasons. Fortunately, many other good sources of calcium exist. These include seaweeds such as kelp, wakame and hijiki; nuts and seeds (like almonds and sesame); blackstrap molasses; beans; oranges; amaranth; collard greens; okra; rutabaga; broccoli; dandelion leaves; kale; sardines; and fortified products such as orange juice and soy milk."

This qoute reminded me of orange juice, by the way, that was in the stores where I live. It had an extra amount of calcium in it. It tasted very very different than regular orange juice. Maybe it's in the stores where you live, aswell.

Thanks for your reply Alwin! Yeah, Florida is known to have a few oranges floating around! Thing is I also have low blood sugar so I have to be careful of juice you know? I do eat almonds and green stuff but I also like the idea of just being able to drink a glass of something and get calcium. I buy the sugar free soy milk from the health food store, but it costs a fortune, but the soy beans are super cheap. A pound of them is only like a dollar and change so that's why I started looking at the soy milk makers in the first place.n

What's wrong with Creatine??? That stuff is awesome! You have to use it in conjunction with a transport supplement though, otherwise you don't get the great benefits from it.

LOL. I haven't seen it in the stores. I seems nice. I also eat peanut butter sometimes, which is made of cashews, instead of peanuts. It's tastes very good, you could try it.
