Like most things, homemade almond milk tastes exponentially better than store bought almond milk. Almonds are one of the only alkaline nuts, and an excellent source of vitamin E.

I love Easter. It is my favorite celebration because it ignites my inner fire to live another year with passion. One of my favorite projects to do with my children to prepare for Easter is to "start" our easter baskets with wheatgrass and dye our eggs with neutral pigments found in food. Celebrating Easter naturally is more sustainable particularly because 1.) it keeps traditional plastic filler grass out of landfills, 2.) you don't have to worry about synthetic food dyes getting into the eggs and 3.) it teaches children to respect "real" materials embracing the beauty in nature.
