So what feels like only yesterday was actually a couple of weeks ago, Myself and Lydia had the pleasure of attending an amazing event at one of Europe’s tallest buildings at 1,016ft tall The Shard in central London was more than the ideal location to wake up to some sunrise yoga, The session with the fabulous Amy Slevin who took us through 26 moves to represent each calorie consumed in Unsweetened Almond Drink took us up to a gorgeous breakfast where we indulged in super foods, smoothies & pancakes. During breakfast we had the pleasure of listening to Vogue’s top health & well-being expert, Calgary Avansino who spoke about her views on healthy eating and a lifestyle with more plant based meals.
This takes me on nicely to talk about the changes I made in my diet from dairy to nut based drinks. After talks with my coach Paul.Burgess and looking at the responses my body had during the consumption of dairy products, he suggested moving across to Almond milk as an alternative in my coffees, cereals and pancakes (these being my main uses for milk) After picking myself up a carton of Alpro from the local shop I have never looked back since, without blabbering on with the endless benefits to Almond milk here are the main reasons for my switch :
Weight loss management ( The overall reduced calorie content per serving )
Its low Glycemic index ( keeping control of sugar levels to avoid fat storage )
High Vitamin B content (riboflavin & iron helps muscle healing & recovery )
It doesn’t contain Lactose ( I can’t say I’m intolerant but i feel less bloated after )
If you haven’t tried the alternatives to dairy products I strongly suggest giving Alpros Unsweetened choice a go It has the lowest calorie content on the market and you can thank me later when your skins glowing and are making more steps towards an attainable healthy lifestyle.
Thank you Alpo for such an incredible experience – AG
