Milk—its great with a cookie (a vegan cacao and raspberry fruit cookie that is) and makes for the cutest milk-stache on your loved ones faces. But what else could you get out of your daily in-take if you were to make the switch, or even just occasionally supplement with an organic nut milk?
There are a lot of rumors out there; how could a nut milk provide calcium? (Sesame milk is a great source of calcium) Almond milk just doesn’t taste the same as cow’s milk! (that’s right, its better!) How will I get my Vitamin D?!? Not to worry, while we realize not everyone is up for being total cow-to-nut converts, we want to share our love for nut milks and point out the benefits of making the switch.
“Lactose-intolerant” the two-worded phrase that has the power to deter us from picking up any milk at all when were at the supermarket—but you don’t have to let it get you down! It’s possible to still get satisfaction from milk without the indigestion and, an added plus, without the same amounts of fat and sugar. Nut milks-namely Almond, are high in omega-3 fatty acids, fight inflammation, and completely cholesterol free and LACTOSE free. You still reap the benefits of vitamins A & D but without the added hormones (some artificial!) that are injected into cows for more milk production. But back to the good stuff, arthritis! Sodium! High blood pressure! BE-GONE! Because nut milks are so much lower in carbs than cow’s milk, you can lower your risk of diabetes and promote muscle growth and healing which is a physical pain many type II diabetics suffer from (you know what I’m talking about—those aches and pains in your feet and joints!) In our next video, we will show you just how easy it is to make nut milk.
