Almond Milk – Protein Shakes Without the Bloating

You are doing your very best to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. Cutting out the junk food and replacing it with items that are good for you is hard enough to do for the average person, and the last thing that you need is to run into a wall when it comes to protein shakes.

 

You know, those things that we drink two or more times a day in between meals. They are a staple of every fit guy’s daily diet plan and should be. But there are those of us out there that have trouble with dairy items and may even be lactose intolerant.

 

So even though you are buying skim milk that isn’t fattening, you’re getting bloated after putting down your shake. It’s giving you the appearance of a guy who hit the fast food joint rather than the gym for his lunch hour and making you feel as lousy as you look.

Some people will tell you to drink water with your protein powder. Unless it’s a fruit flavor, that’s a tough task. Chocolate or vanilla doesn’t mix well with water, no matter how many times you try to convince yourself it does.

 

So instead of giving up or giving in, do yourself a favor and invest in some almond milk. It’s manufactured from ground almonds and contains neither cholesterol nor lactose. It tastes great and even the unsweetened kind is good. You can also get it in different varieties such as vanilla or chocolate. The main negative is that it contains less protein and calcium as cow’s milk. For instance, almond milk has only 8mg of calcium per 250ml compared to approximately 300mg per 250ml for cow’s milk.

You can even make your own home brew if you’re so inclined, but it’s easier to grab a container off the supermarket shelf. Your stomach will thank you in the long run.
