|My latest workout - hiking!|
I’ve committed to being active three to four days a week and that has recently included a mix of yoga, running and barre classes. One of my secrets to a great workout is to finish eating an hour before my class and make sure I eat lots of protein before I hit the gym. I find that I feel less tired this way and the protein gives me that boost energy to give it my all when I’m in class. A great source of protein is a new beverage - Amore Almonds + Dairy from Earth’s Own.
Try using the vanilla flavour for a nutty almond and vanilla-infused latte – perfect for an autumn day. One serving (250 ml) contains 120 calories and 3.5 grams of fat with 7 grams of protein. I usually find myself dipping at around 4 pm right when I’m craving a snack. I find that when I have something with protein in it, I perk right back up and my sugar levels don’t dip like crazy.
Making the transition to almond milk? I remember this was pretty hard for me at first because I was so used to the taste of milk in my cereal. Amore Almonds + Dairy is a great product for those looking for an in-between and you’ll reap the benefits of both dairy and almonds in one.
Amoré is available in 1.75L cartons ($5.29) and is available in the refrigerated dairy section in grocery stores across Canada. Want to try it for yourself?
