After watching documentaries like Food, Inc., Supersize Me, and Forks over Knives, we wanted to significantly reduce our family's intake of meat and animal products. A few months ago we starting making primarily vegetarian meals and slowly weaned the family from cow's milk moving to almond milk. I starting making plain almond milk with almonds and water only... but I've got two young kids and they were not having it. So I added some dates and vanilla and voila - they love it! This is so easy and cost effective. I just buy a bunch of almonds from the bulk bin and make this anytime we run low.
Cooking & home projects galore! My secret inner-designer revealed.
