Health Benefits Of Almond Milk

Our bodies are constantly working to maintain health, our skin, hair, and nails are constantly being replenished daily. Our bones and tissues are constantly replacing old tissues with new. The body requires protein to properly function in repairing and maintaining a healthy vibrant body.

After a long night’s sleep (fast), the body requires a re-supply of the nutrition it burnt through while sleeping,  in the form of protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin and minerals. Eating a healthy breakfast containing protein is a great way to supply the body with the necessary nutrients it requires to properly function.

Studies have shown that eating protein for breakfast leads to a sustained feeling of fullness compared to other meals.

    Gonna try this, but as a side note, I tried almond creamer in my coffee and it’s very sweet, there’s a Silk Soy Coffee creamer that’s more to my taste.

  3. This seems healthy does not seem like a high protein breakfast to me. How much is in the almond milk? The ones I look at only have about one gram of protein.

  4. I love using quinoa as a dinner side dish, but now I need to try it for breakfast! This sounds like an amazing way to start the day…and all of those fresh berries are just calling my name! Thanks for sharing! #client
