I Heart Almond Milk

DenaMarch 11, 2014

Clearly, we like to play with food in this house. 😉 Jokes aside, it’s not a secret that we take food seriously around here, too. I stopped drinking cow’s milk about three years ago, not coincidentally, right around the time that I watched Food, Inc. for the first time. That film opened my eyes to some powerful truths about the American food supply, from the inhumane treatment of factory farmed animals to the dangers of GMOs. When possible, I choose sustainable, ethical food, and in the case of milk — almond milk wins over cow’s milk (almost) every time.

Almond milk is one of the most nutritionally valuable components of my diet. It is high in vitamins and minerals — including vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, iron, fiber, zinc and calcium. It’s also low in calories & fat — only 40 calories per eight ounce serving. Almond milk is lactose, gluten, casein and cholesterol free; it’s also free of saturated fats.

Silk has long-been the brand of choice for my family when it comes to milk. When I got an email asking me to blog about it, I was quite happy. The number one reason that I love Silk is because all of its products are made without the use of GMOs. Companies that take a stand against genetically modified food always get my vote.

If you’re thinking about switching away from cow’s milk, I really encourage you to give it a shot. Silk almond milk is an easy, delicious way to start adding more plants to your diet. You can sign up here to hear more from Silk and register to receive $0.75 off any Silk half gallon. (Silk Original Almond Milk is my favourite, but I love the chocolate milk for a treat once in awhile, too!)

What do you think about almond milk? Have you tried it? Do you love it as much as I do? Would you consider making the switch? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

In love & health,
