Um not to be negative but almond milk has 1 gram of protein per serving so I don't understand the point of using it unless you are allergic to dairy or soy as a replacement for skim milk which clocks in at 9 grams for 90 cals or even light soymilk which has 6 grams of protein for 60 cals.
Many people are lactose intolerant or allergic to soy. I am not lactose intolerant, but I dislike the taste of regular milk, so I drink soy or almond. I still consume other dairy products such as yogurt, so I get plenty of calcium and protein. But if I'm going to drink milk by itself, I go for almond or soy. Personal preference.
I think it's safe to say that everyone is probably "allergic" to soy...it's pretty much poison (especially to those who eat it as a protein substitute). I'm definitely not going back to soy milk...I try to avoid it in frozen and prepackaged food but sometimes it's so difficult to avoid because it's in EVERYTHING! If I do buy something with soy in it, I make sure it's the last or next to last ingredient. But yes, almond milk all the way!
What you eat can have a direct effect on your skin if you're struggling with psoriasis. See what to shop for.
