    Almond Milk - healthy fat


    4 grams of supposesly HEALTHY fat per serving.

    Is this stuff as healthy as olive oil?

    Pretty sure it's all mono's?

    I have been getting in a whopping 40 grams a day - I put this stuff in everything. LOL

    Almond milk is decent in moderation, but lots of poly n-6 fats. Balancing out the n-6 fat with n-3 (pref from cold water fish) will lead to less inflammation.

    Consider throwing some coconut milk into the mix - lots of good fat and fills you up better than almond milk.

    fat from coconut is almost all saturated fat, which is less prone to oxidation inside the body. A great thing on the Anabolic/Metabolic Diet, probably not if on a high carb diet.

    almond milk is awesome. I use the 35 cal plain unflavored stuff to make protein pudding at night with my casein protein. Little extra almond butter or PB in there, tasty stuff
