When shopping🛒 in the dairy aisle, there are so many types of milk🥛 and milk alternatives to choose from! the options may seem daunting🤷🏻♀️, so i’m here to break it down for you 👍🏼. in terms of protein, cow’s 🐮 milk and soy milk definitely take the lead. but, alternative milks contain (and are fortified with) vitamins, minerals, and fats, so if you’re primary concern isn’t protein, these beverages serve as a great option! 🐄cow’s milk: contains fat, protein, carbohydrates, b vitamins, calcium, and potassium. most cow’s milk is fortified with vitamin d. try to buy organic if possible to avoid hormones and antibiotics.
almond milk: fortified with vitamins a, d, e, and calcium. almond milk has a significantly lower concentration of whole almonds, thus it contains very little of the beneficial nutrients found in whole almonds (such as protein, fiber and healthy fats). 🥥coconut milk: contains mostly fats in the form of medium-chain triglycerides (mcts) and is fortified with vitamins a, b, and d and calcium. 🌱soy milk: contains fat, protein, carbohydrates and is most similar to 2% f*t cow’s milk. it is also the lease
$$$ plant-based milk option and one of the few that is a complete protein. 🥛oat milk: contains mostly carbohydrates, a little bit of fiber, and is often fortified with vitamins a, b, d and calcium. 🍚rice milk: contains mostly carbohydrates and is often fortified with calcium and vitamin d.
