Tip of the day: Replace regular milk with almond milk!
“Almond Breeze is a non-dairy beverage made from real almonds, all natural, smooth and creamy with a hint of almonds. Almond Breeze is a great tasting non-dairy beverage without the thin, chalky after taste of rice and soy beverages. Enjoy Almond Breeze chilled by the glass and on your cereal. You will love how it froths in coffee drinks, enhances fruit smoothies, and blends cup for cup in your favorite recipes.
Almond Breeze won the 2004 Best Taste Award from the prestigious American Culinary Institute (ACI). ACI is an independent, chef based judging organization.
• Gluten, cholesterol and lactose free • Excellent source of calcium, vitamins D & E • Good source of vitamin A • A refreshing alternative to soy and rice non-dairy beverages”
The benefits of soy milk are always disputed; While it may help reduce heart disease, the soy estrogens could cause problems with your hormones. Not to mention, most soy milk has a lot of unneeded, hidden sugars. Then there’s rice milk which is packed with carbs. Almond milk is one of the most nutritious milk-substitutes on the market, especially if you get the unsweetened kind.
Make the switch today! I switched from regular 1% or skim milk in my cereal to almond milk, and I switched from drinking chocolate soy milk to chocolate almond milk. I promise it’s worth it. Cow’s milk really is NOT that good for you in many ways.

a good substitute - only 40 calories a serving

kewl smoothie
i know we’ve been making a lot of drink posts lately, but it’s just too hot to cook, or do anything else, really. plus, this one is really great for extra-hot days!
blend until smoothie consistency:
3-4 cups (or handfuls) frozen strawberries
2 cups watermelon, melon-balled (we soaked these in triple sec, if you’re into alcoholic drinks)
1 cup cucumber
1 cup almond milk, or just enough to keep the blade spinning (and more triple sec, for good measure)

Anonymous asked:

how can you smoke weed and drink and still be healthy?

You have to balance your habits. I only drink occasionally and try not to overdo it. I use a vaporizer instead of burning weed to reduce toxins. Drinking/smoking is relaxing to me and I consider it a part of my mental health.

While I do these things, they don’t take over my life - I still exercise and eat a healthy diet and respect my body. I strongly believe that part of being healthy is the ability to let yourself indulge - eat your favorite foods every now and then, drink a beer if you want one, smoke a J if that’s your thing - without beating yourself up over it. So for me, those things fit into my mentality and lifestyle. xx

I’m curious - do you guys drink and/or smoke?

And do you believe that drinking and smoking can fit into a healthy lifestyle?

(Smoking = cigarettes or weed)

Interesting answers! Personally, I only drink occasionally. I do smoke weed frequently but I use a vaporizer instead of burning it. It fits my lifestyle and I still feel healthy :)
