Let’s get right down to business, sipping on today’s topic… the “other white milk”.

Do you find yourself worrying that if you give up dairy you will lack in calcium? Are you one of the numerous people who have fallen prey to the milk mustache campaign that convinces people that you need to have cow milk in your diet to be healthy? This simply isn’t the case and I suggest you erase that image from your mind, as well as the notion that you can only get the proper amount of calcium from dairy. For more information on this check out what the Harvard School Of Public Health has to say.

Do you struggle with digesting dairy? Do you dislike milk, but crave something to eat on cereal, oatmeal or granola? Do you avoid buying nut milk because it costs too much? Are you looking for another alternative to soy milk?
Do you ever find that you have a craving for a beverage that fills you up in that warm fuzzy kind of way but you’d like it to be healthy?

Cooking and eating with as few ingredients as possible is vital for your long-term success. Involving as many nuts and seeds into that mix is imperative.

Almond Milk has more nutrients than any other diary free milk option.

  • It contributes to weight loss.
  • It helps you increase muscle (great for after hard-core workouts).
  • Almonds are great for your heart - low in sodium, high in potassium.
  • There is no sugar added (low glycemic).
  • Almond milk has the following vitamins:

* Approx. 25% daily recommended calcium (the magnesium in the almond milk helps you absorb more of the calcium)
* Approximately 20% daily recommended vitamin D (immune system, teeth, emotions and helps you absorb other vitamins)
* Approximately 50% daily recommended vitamin E (super for your skin)
* A bit of vitamin A, protein, iron and B-Vitamins are included too which promotes growth, repair and energy.

Happy, healthy days ahead!
