When it comes a healthy breakfast, or any meal for that matter, I always try to maximize the nutritional value in what we eat. Sure, we like a treat now and again, but but when it comes to the things we already eat and drink, I love it when there is the opportunity to have some added benefits.
I don’t drink cows milk because of a recent new intolerance I have developed, so I have taken to drinking Silk Almondmilk®. Silk® is the only brand I buy because I like the ingredients list and love their commitment to the Non-GMO Project.
My favorite new variety of Silk® is the Silk Vanilla Almondmilk Protein + Fiber®.
