Almond Milk

This nut milk is the number-one pick for a dairy substitute. It’s gluten-, dairy-, soy-, and lactose-free and has a low glycemic index, so it’s good for anyone with diabetes and allergy issues. One cup is only 30 calories and has 50 percent of your daily vitamin E. It also has vitamins A, B, and D, which are good for your skin, eyes, and bones. There’s not much protein in almond milk, but it’s full of healthy fats, magnesium, and calcium. It’s also one of the most versatile non-dairy milk options that you can buy or make at home, and it goes great with your morning cereal.
