When you're eating clean, where do most of your calories come from?

Im officially jealous! That's freaking awesome! how much is it? Here at the one farm that is about 50 miles one way, it's $6/gallon, and their Colostrum is $12/gallon.

Another thing is I was amazed by the excellent taste of course, but also that it had virtually no "scent" at all, like regular milk. My kids love it and ask for it a lot! If I can't get that I usually buy them organic flax milk or the organic cow milk.

It costs me $8/gallon. It's kind of a heavy price but it's worth it I think.

Christ. Some things to point out about this thread:
1. Peanut butter and wheat bread sandwiches the healthiest thing? Why don't you just go eat a bag of Cheetos?
2. Good suggestions w/the chicken, steak, eggs, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, greens.
3. It's not carbs in general that will kill you, it's simple carbs. For that reason I try to avoid sugar at all costs when I'm cutting. I don't drink milk, not because it's particularly bad, but because it's too high in sugar compared to plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese.
4. If you don't like eggs, do it like me and buy cartons of 100% natural egg whites. I throw 3/4 cup in with my protein shake in the morning. I think that's equivalent to the egg whites of something like 12 eggs, but I forget. Anywho, great source of protein, tastes great in the shake, no hassle.
5. Stay away from raw milk. It's not a cure all, it's a scam. I am most certainly biased on this issue because I spent years of my life doing foodborne illness law (I'm an attorney). You have no idea how much devastation raw milk has caused, and the sad part is the people that are peddling it are advertising it as a cure-all. People are buying it, feeding it to their kids, who are at risk of getting very very sick (or dying) from E. coli. The farmers are selling raw milk because it's a cash cow (no pun intended).
I won't deny that there may be some additional health benefits to raw milk. But whatever they are, they are very minimal compared to the risk of the diseases you can get from drinking milk tainted with cow sh*t. As one of the attorneys I worked with likes to point out, look where the udders are and look where the cow's a** is. Is it any surprise that the milk is contaminated with poop?
Pasteurization was invented 150 years ago PRECISELY because people were getting sick and dying from tainted milk. Come on folks, be smarter than that.

Lean meats, dairy products, and lentils. Largest chunk of my calories right there.

Yeah, fats are definitely making up a good portion of my calories. Judging by body composition, for me personally, carbs keep me from dropping my BF% way more than fats do.[/QUOTE]
Fats/cholesterol are precursors to testosterone. Carbs are not. That's why you drop more with fats.
