2. Unsweetened Plant Milk
Plant-based milk is very nutritious as it contains many vitamins and nutrients and is very versatile. Feel free to cook with plant milk and use them in any recipe that calls for milk. Just make sure to use the unsweetened milk in recipes that you don’t want to be sweetened.
Almond, coconut, and soy milk are among some of the most popular plant-based milk used.
Plant milk that does not contain sugar is best for controlling blood sugar as the carbohydrate contents are low. Unsweetened almond milk is a great choice as it contains many nutrients and is also rich in good fats to help keep you heart-healthy and full.
Here are 3 delicious Brands of Plant Milk I like to buy and recommend!
3. Almond Butter
Almond butter is considered to be a very healthy fat as it contains essential omega-3 fatty acids. It is high in calories. It’s best to eat smaller amounts of nut butters if you’re watching your weight.
Almond butter offers more vitamins, minerals, and fiber than peanut butter does. Both offer about the same amount of calories, sugar, and protein.
4. Pure Maple Syrup
Real Maple syrup is made from maple trees. It is a great alternative to traditional sugar and other table syrups as it is more nutritious.
Not only is it high in antioxidants, but it also contains riboflavin, calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese calcium, copper, and potassium.
Maple syrup also offers antimicrobial properties to help your immune system fight harmful bacteria.
I use real pure maple syrup as a healthier substitute to regular white sugar in most of my recipes.
I use this 100 % REAL Maple Syrup as a healthier alternative to sugar and other table syrups!
5. Real Cinnamon
Cinnamon is a light spice from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. It’s used to flavor many cuisines, breakfast cereals, snack foods, teas, and traditional foods.
Cinnamon offers anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It also contains antioxidants and nutrients such as potassium, fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, and protein. It is known to help improve gut health, reduce blood sugar levels and blood pressure.
I prefer to use Ceylon Cinnamon, as it is considered from the TRUE Cinnamon tree!
Raspberries are considered to be a superfood as it’s a great source of antioxidants and nutrients. They are also very low in sugar, high in fiber and contain many other essential nutrients, including potassium, calcium, vitamin C, Iron, Vitamin B-6, and magnesium.
They may help aid in diabetes, cancer, obesity and even offer anti-aging effects.
The water and fiber content in the raspberries also help promote healthy bowel movements to help eliminate toxins from the body.
