Well, almonds are nuts, so they're okay in moderation on primal -- macadamias being the best (omega ratios). By extension, pure almond milk would probably be okay -- again, in moderation. I've seen some great recipes for making your own, but they are kind of time consuming. There are some pure ones on the market, I understand, but check the ingredients. Amazing what junk is in processed stuff, even at Whole Foods. My little (big) thing is that I try to keep the whole food (almonds) rather than a processed one (almond milk), but that's certainly not a must.
Yes, the search engine works quite well. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a recipe there for almond milk. Basically, soak the critters overnight, take the skin off (time consuming part) and blend like crazy -- strain, chill, drink.
Thanks! Nothing ever comes up when I search for something. It just says that it's loading the whole time.
I use almond milk (unsweetened, fewest ingredients listed) in my coffee instead of cream. I used to love cream in my coffee (tasted great) but the mucous buildup was horrible. I'd be snorting and hawking loogies all night.
I love almond milk, and use an unsweetened kind from Whole Foods that has very little fat (maybe 3 grams in a cup? and I only use a little bit) so I'm not worried about the O3/O6 ratio at all. I would say that if it doesn't have added sugar or weird chemicals, you can probably drink it with no fear.
