Almond Milk

I'm on a bit of a health kick at the moment. I need to look good for my wedding later this year. I don't have a weight scale so I'm going by my clothes. Since Christmas I have lost 2 dress sizes so not bad.

Anyway being a bit of a foodie, I'm always looking for ways of cutting calories in food, without losing the flavour.

So, I have to thank Cathy over at Curious as a Cathy for this fabulous tip, and introducing me to the wonders of almond milk

Like Cathy, I have been having oatmeal for breakfast. I find that it warms me up and fills me til lunchtime..no need to snack. And like her, I was making it with water, which to be honest was just ..well...watery ..and tasteless. Then I read her post, and thought...wow..must try that. And its lovely. I use half water and half almond milk..and voila..a creamy bowl of deliciousness, for barely any added calories

I use it in my coffee too...and it has a mildly nutty taste...yummy

Here are the comparisons
