Almond Breeze

I just wanted to share this find with you. I've known about it for a couple years, even tried it, just never used it much until recently. Not only is it low calorie it is also low carb...and I think it tastes great on cereal...a whole cup is only 40 calories for the unsweetened vanilla, which is the one I use, and the carb count is 2 grams per cup with 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of protein. From a nutritional standpoint it is a good source of vitamin E (50% DV) and potassium (190 mg). It also provides 20% DV of calcium, 25% DV of vitamin D and some additional nutrients...also it has no cholesterol. I'd say it's a good all around bargain considering the low carb, low calories it contains. I paid $2.29 plus tax for a quart of it at Krogers.

Being a cancer survivor whose cancer was dependent upon estrogen and on the advice of my oncologist I avoid the soy milk that is so popular today.

I save a lot of calories using the Almond Breeze on my cereal and get my dairy from yogurt and cheese. The Almond Breeze is also good in smoothies.
