Let’s face it: most of us are trying to live a healthier lifestyle — and it’s not always easy. But, with all the different diets and “healthier” food products out there, it gets mind-boggling! Who can keep up??
So, regular cow’s milk is one of the items I have eliminated from my diet — not only because I feel better without it, but I also prefer the taste of the alternatives. Like myself, there are many reasons to give up dairy and there are really yummy options out there if you decide to do so! I have listed 4 of my favorite milk alternatives that taste great and are great for you!
This is probably the most popular – and for good reason! You can even find soy coffee creamer — which is delicious. Soy milk not only offers a great source of protein, but it’s less fattening than regular milk (depending on which one you buy).
Coconut milk is great if you are vegan and has a high amount of protein compared to the other alternatives. Plus, the flavor is probably the best out of other types of milk.
Almond milk is definitely my favorite of all the alternatives. It’s really low in calories and have many sources of nutrients than most of the other options.
Like almond milk, rice milk is very low in fat and has many sources of nutrients. However, it also is great if you have any kind of allergies, such as nut or soy. It also helps that it’s pretty delicious too!
