almond milk vs cows milk – blue diamond giveaway

10th September 2014
Until a year and a half ago, which milk I put in my body really was the least of my worries. But after moving back home to live with my Grandma in order to give me some time to save for my house, I had to readjust to her way of living. It wasn’t too hard to be honest, we’re pretty similar. That was until one day I decided I fancied a bowl of Branflakes for breakfast rather than my usual eggs. No milk? What the…Almond milk? My Branflakes will never be the same again. Evidently it wasn’t that bad as here I am with my own home, my own fridge and not a milk bottle in sight. I was completely converted and not just by the 29kcal per serving. So I’ve joined forces with my tipple of choice Blue Diamond Almonds to tell you more about the benefits of Almond milk and also give you the chance to win some fabulous prizes to help you on your own fitness journey. So it wasn’t completely down to the low calorie content which won me over, but I’ve got to admit it was a big one. Almond milk is full to the brim with vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, iron, fiber, zinc and calcium whilst also being gluten, Cholesterol and saturated fat free. This makes it an obvious choice over cows milk which can pack almost 10grams of fat per serving as well as almost 150kcal. The vitamin E found in almond milk is almost 50% of your RDA and is an essential vitamin for keeping your skim healthy, especially in the sunshine which is great for the beauty conscious. And although Almond milk has a low protein content it also boasts enough B vitamins such as iron and riboflavin to […]

And although Almond milk has a low protein content it also boasts enough B vitamins such as iron and riboflavin to ensure your muscles get the regular MOT they need. But  a really important one for me is the shelf life of almond milk, in an age where the cost of living continues to rise, we just cannot afford to be wasting food and an unopened carton of almond milk can last months and an opened one up to two weeks!

If that wasn’t enough to persuade you to make the change I’m gonna give you chance to try it yourself as I’ve got a big care package from Blue Diamond Almonds full of their best products as well as a pair Nike kicks to give away! All you have to do is:

1. Follow @Lydiaemillen on Twitter

2. Follow @BlueDiamond on Twitter

3. Retweet the competition tweet found on my twitter page HERE.

 

It’s as simple as that! The competition is open to World Wide entrants and will close Tuesday 16th at 8pm UK time.

Best of luck!

 

COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
