Paleo Almond Milk (Living Authentically)
A BIG hug to the hundreds who responded to my question: What do you want to know? What can I do to help you live a better life? It has taken me two weeks to sort through all the emails and I’m very thankful that so many of you took the time to answer. I will always do my best to offer you the most authentic, fresh and useful information.
As I read through your mail, my heart was filled with gratitude — I’m thankful that you trust my advice. I take this trust seriously.
I stand behind my products, services and values 110 percent, and if I find that anyone in my circle (personal or business) does not share my values, my doorman goes up, the window closes and I’m outta there. I recently had to close the door on a relationship for this very reason – incongruent value systems. It was painful (and still is). However, I find that letting people into my life with incompatible values is frustrating and tiresome. It’s a true battery drainer. Being who I am and standing firm on my values is not something I can compromise if I want to live an authentic life. And I do!
It’s no different than when someone asks me about food. It’s my job to tell them what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. And that’s not easy. People have a lot of emotional anchoring when it comes to food. It involves changing subconscious messages and self-talk people have had for years.
When patients start my 30-Day Reset, they ask me, can I have this or that? One of the more popular questions is, can I have almond milk? Eck … well, coconut milk is a way better choice for many reasons (better fat, lower in Omega-6 pro-inflammatory fat and more overall health benefits). However, if you must, I suggest you make your own like I have done here. This way, you’re not compromising as much as if you were to purchase the milk in a store. This will ensure you are avoiding processed ingredients, and it taste fantastic! Check out my Paleo plain, chocolate, strawberry or mango almond milk. Kids love it, too.
Keep thinking big and living bold!
