Whole Foods coupon to stack with $2 MQ!
This should make for cheap or free non-dairy milk in Whole Foods, or for Publix shoppers whose stores take Whole Foods as a competitor.
These milks are available in many flavors, including coconut, almond, vanilla and even chocolate which was a winner with the kids!
Soymilk is a good alternative for people who are lactose intolerant. Soy, as opposed to cow milk is derived from a plant.
Our daughter had constant sniffles until my husband convinced me to try giving her non dairy milk. The way he explained it, dairy cows are subjected to a hormone treatment to produce more milk. Milk is mucus (gross) and traces of the hormones can be found in the milk, that when consumed can cause a child to be more sniffly
He was right. In a few days, she stopped sniffling and has no problem drinking soy milk. She loves it when we call her the “soy-milk kid”.
The are many health benefits to soy:
- Soy can help reduce the risks of breast and prostrate cancer.
- Soy can help reduce the risks of osteoporosis
- Soy can help reduce menopausal symptoms (Really? I’m on it!!!)
The best part is, an 8 ounce glass of soymilk contains 30% of the calcium your body needs.
Not to mention, we live in Florida, where hurricanes are a constant worry. Open the pantry of every Floridian during hurricane season, and you will see batteries, water and shelf stable milk.
Smoothies are also better tasting and healthier in my husbands opinion when you make them with soy or rice milk instead of dairy milk. Try it and come back and let me know how you like it, or share a recipe in the comments below.
