If you are trying to lose weight, you are probably struggling with”The Nut Problem”: You know that nuts are nutritious, tasty & convenient, but you also know that a quarter cup serving has about 200 calories. Yikes!
Here’s your solution: Almond Milk.
Almond milk tastes great and has only half the calories of nonfat milk. Almond Breeze, the most common brand (at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s) is a fabulous caloric bargain:
Original unsweetened has 40 calories per cup
Vanilla unsweetened has 45
Chocolate unsweetened has 45
All without the hormones that often accompany dairy. The main ingredients are almonds, water and added calcium.
