Last weekend was Kid’s Health Day for the YMCA. The free event showcased the youth organizations serving Pomona Valley. I work for the organization A Little Xtra and we set up a booth and handed out vegan samples. We had original and dark chocolate Silk almond milk, Beyond Meat chicken salad and Daiya cream cheese spread.
Almond milk is a great substitute for cow milk. It only has 60 calories per serving compared to normal 2 percent milk that is around 122 calories. There isn’t any cholesterol or saturated fat in almond milk and it has the good fats to keep your heart healthy. One cup of almond milk has 30 percent of the RDA of calcium and 25 percent of vitamin D.
