Milk a Flaxseed
I’m on a huge eggs kick, but I have to say, my favorite meal to eat eggs has to be at dinner. Such was the case last night:
I eat eggs for dinner – in some form or variation – at least 2 or 3 times per week. Last night, I paired it with some sauteed veggies – broccoli, spinach, and onion – as well as some organic bacon.
I had 3 slices of bacon, and Shane had….the rest (8? and he wanted MOAR haha) Delicious dinner indeed!
This morning when I woke up, I knew I wanted to get in some strength training, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do.
So after awkwardly walking around the gym here and there for about 5 minutes, I decided to have another rendezvous with the Spartacus workout. What can I say? I’m a glutton for punishment.
After toweling off, reapplying deodorant and trying not to look like I just put myself through a hellish/awesome workout, I trained a client real quick (well, for the allotted 60 minutes) and then headed home for some breakfast.
Delicious bowl of raw/paleo cereal.
Good Karma Foods’ Flax Milk Review
I’ve tried just about every milk on the block in my day:
- almond milk soy milk
- coconut milk
Am I missing any? I’m sure I am. Seems like you can milk just about anything these days
So when Ali at Good Karma Foods emailed me and asked if I would like to try their new line of flax milk, I was totally down.
Ali sent me three different flavors of flax milk cartons – vanilla, original, and unsweetened.
Now, I was on an unsweetened vanilla almond milk kick for a long time up until recently. Instead I decided to just drink Shane’s organic 2% or whole milk. It tastes better and cuts some costs since he usually didn’t drink the whole carton anyway. So that’s what I’ve been used to tasting.
Before tasting the milk, I read up a little bit on it from the literature Ali sent.
Good Karma flax milk contains 1200 mg of Omega-3’s with each serving. As someone who knows we’re usually in a constant battle to even out our Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio (Omega-6 tends to be much higher) I loved seeing this!
I tried the vanilla first. I tried it alone and it was way too sweet for my liking. Then the next morning, I put some in my raw cereal and it worked. It tastes the most like my old unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but I’d say it was actually my least favorite of the three flavors Ali sent.
Next, I tried the unsweetened flax milk.
I’d say I’d choose this as my next choice. I actually prefer it to the unsweetened vanilla almond milk I used to drink! II’ve also been using this variety to use in my paleo cereal.
The best looking stats of three clocking in with 0 grams of sugar!
Finally, I tried the original.
This was by far, my favorite as far as taste goes. It tasted the most like regular milk, and I actually even drank a glass of it on its own while snacking on a pumpkin protein primal bar the other night.
Still 11 grams of sugar, but that’s about like a serving of cow’s milk anyhow.
If I were to buy a carton of the flax milk, I’d probably go for either this one or the original unsweetened one. In fact, I’ll probably look for it the next time I’m at Naturally Yours. You can buy Good Karma Foods’ Flax Milk at Whole Foods or other natural food stores for between $3.49 and $4.49.
Ok, gotta get ready for that thing called a jay-oh-bee! Have a lovely afternoon
Do you drink any dairy-free milk? What’s your favorite?
