New You Health Tip: Select top quality almond milk as an alternative to dairy.

Almond milk can be a healthy alternative to dairy milk, especially for those with lactose intolerance. This low-in-cholesterol option is also rich in vitamins (calcium and vitamin E) and minerals, and can promote healthy weight loss due to its lower calorie content. When choosing your particular brand, remember to read the label first. The ingredient “carrageenan,” which is extracted from red seaweed may cause gastrointestinal inflammation according to a recent study. Additionally certain brands of almond milk are artificially sweetened. Thus, select a natural, organic, almond milk (naturally sweetened, or unsweetened) for the perfect blend of flavor and nutrients.
