National Nutrition Month

Welcome back – we’re so happy to see you at the Better Than Milk party! Since March is National Nutrition Month, we think it’s the perfect time to chat about how drinking Better Than Milk may add some extra spring in your sip—as part of a well-balanced diet, of course. Gather your favorite glass, mug or cereal bowl and pull up a chair as we share a few reasons to drink Better Than Milk.

Do a little dance, get plant-based to-night! 🎶🎵🎶  Yes, our drinks are great for those following a vegan or plant-based lifestyle, but our drinks don’t stop there! All 5 delicious flavors are meant to be enjoyed by everyone— vegetarians, flexitarians, contrarians and those that are simply curious to try a plant-based, alternative milk! Our delish delights are gluten free and dairy free. Dairy contains lactose, which is a milk sugar not tolerated well by a large portion of the population. But wait, there’s more! Better Than Milk Drinks are USDA Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified so you can rest assured there’s no bull (no cows either!).

Keep it Clean! Carrageenan, sulfites, cholesterol… those all sound like yummy things you’d add to your smoothies, right? No!! You passed the pop quiz! 😉 Our bodies aren’t designed to process artificial flavors and other yucky stuff that’s become all too common on labels. That’s why Better Than Milk has fewer ingredients and is without dairy, lactose, gluten (yes, that includes our Oat Milk!), soy, sulfites, artificial flavors, carrageenan and cholesterol. Now you might be saying, “I recognize most of that list, but seriously what is carrageenan?” Carrageenan is an additive often used to thicken, emulsify, and preserve foods and drinks. While it’s a natural ingredient that’s derived from red seaweed, it can sometimes cause upset tummies, so we prefer to keep our drinks as clean as possible and do not use it.

Listen to Your Gut. It seems like everyone and their uncle is talking about gut health and how to cultivate healthy mircobiomes these days, but what are the key takeaways and how can plant-based nutrition help? Ok, it goes like this. As humans, our gut is made up of trillions of tiny bacteria that impact the way our tummy feels and affects our overall health. Our microbiomes love diversity! Studies have shown that going vegetarian may improve gut health and lower inflammation due to high levels of prebiotic fiber in this type of diet. Of course, when it comes to our improving our health, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, but by making appropriate lifestyle and dietary changes, you can alter the diversity and number of microbes in your gut for the better. Next time you make a green smoothie, reach for Better Than Milk as a creamy, non-dairy ingredient and cheers to a healthier gut!

And there you have it, pals! Whether you’re vegan, interested in going plant-based, want to impress your date with what’s in your fridge, or are simply curious to taste our delish drinks, you can guzzle a glass with confidence that Better Than Milk is the creamiest tasting alt-milk drink ever. A vegan, shelf-stable milk that’s plant-based, certified USDA organic, Non-GMO Verified and made from a few simple, clean-label ingredients.  The most important part? Have fun with what you eat and drink by using Better Than Milk. 😊🥛
