Everyone here at Chez SGCC is lactose intolerant in varying degrees. Luckily for me, I’m the least affected. That means I still get to have ice cream from time to time. And, a world without ice cream is a very sad place. However, except for yogurt, we try to limit our dairy consumption around here as much as we can. One product that we regularly use as a substitute for cow’s milk in cereal, coffee, etc., is almond milk. It doesn’t contain any lactose or animal products. It’s also a cholesterol free and low glycemic food. And, it’s low in calories and high in nutrients. Plus, it tastes great!
For years, I’ve bought our almond milk from the supermarket. It was readily available and not terribly expensive. I had no complaints. But one day I took a minute to read the label, and was surprised to find that there was a lot more in that carton than just almond milk – some of which I couldn’t even pronounce. Now, I can’t tell you that any of that stuff is necessarily bad, because I don’t even know what most of it is. But, I can tell you one thing. If I can’t pronounce it, I sure don’t wanna eat or drink it! read more >>
