Is almond milk a good alternative to dairy?


While I'm not a vegan, and I have in the past been an advocate for organic dairy products, I eat less and less dairy all the time. I think it's important to experiment with your diet and see what works best. But more and more questions about dairy have come into light recently.

Americans consume more cow's milk and its products per person than most populations in the world. So Americans should have wonderfully strong bones right? Unfortunately not. A recent study showed that American women aged 50 and older have one of the highest rates of hip fractures in the world.

I wrote last week about using soy as a substitute for dairy and lots of people asked me about almond milk. Almond milk is really starting to catch on and I've long been a fan of it.

When push comes to shove, how healthy is almond milk?
