The contents of my grocery basket change every time, depending on my mood or what’s on sale, but there’s a few constants.
I’m not entirely lactose intolerant, but my stomach doesn’t enjoy much dairy, and since exploring dairy alternatives, I’ve fallen in love with both almond and soy milk.
I almost always have a container of Almond Breeze in my refrigerator, and I use it basically the same way I’d use cow’s milk: in cereal, in smoothies, in oatmeal and even baking. As Anne said, it has less protein than cow’s milk, but otherwise it’s very healthy and is a good source of calcium and Vitamins D, E and A.
I don’t quite know how they can make the almond milk taste sweet without adding sweetener, but it’s pretty damn good.
Speaking of sweet, they’re running a pretty sweet sweepstakes on their Facebook page right now.
I think we can all use some kind words in our lives, right?
Well, one lucky winner on their Facebook page will win a year’s supply of Almond Breeze and a $1000 home store gift card to “spruce up your kitchen!”
You just have to like their page and then leave a nice message for someone else to “get their good going.”
I chose my mom because she rocks, and I don’t know what I’d do without her.
I get my good going by running:
…and eating bananas.
