Have you ever experienced the frustration of doing everything you thought was necessary to lose weight or “get ripped” or “lean out” or (insert your favorite term here)? I ask this question knowing the answer is yes for 95% of you. It’s certainly yes for me and everyone I know. Your body is a […]
It’s not even really a recipe. This is more like a process for making almond milk. With EVERY brand available on store shelves containing various additives, this homemade almond milk is the answer to a non-dairy milk without the nonsense!
