Almond milk on induction?

I need some help from seasoned Atkins veterans. My husband and I are going to start re Induction tomorrow, big family reunion in August, carb creep catching up with us. My question is can I continue to make our almond milk , whey protein powder shakes for breakfast. I know the strawberries will have to go, but 1 cup of almond milk has 1 gr of carbs and a serving of Jay Robb whey protein has 1 gr carb also. I know about the nuts and seeds rank on the Atkins scale, but the milk is very low carb. It's summer, it's hot in the desert and the thought of eggs for breakfast is really a turn off. Any thoughts ?

I told my BIL this just the other day. No almond milk on induction. Kool-aid or crystal lite and protein powder.

Yes it's low carb but not induction. So now he has a new favorite shake. Crystal light and whey protein and ice. I did tell him crystal light has aspartame.

Almond milk was not very prevalent when the Atkins diet was first written. Esther is right, of course. But at 1 carb, I would not hesitate to use it.

Thank you Esther and Soobee for your input. I can't do artificial flavors and coloring, so the flavored drink mixes are out. My thinking was along the same lines as Soobees, no almond milk was available when Dr Atkins wrote his book. I'll decide by tomorrow morning .

I agree with Soobee . It's not like you have 100 lbs. to take off.You know what you can do . I think the younger ones have it much better then us , old timers. In some ways.

Good luck Dee.

Thanks Esther. Atkins is a lot less strict these days. I still have my 1972 copy of Dr Atkin's book which I used when we started low carbing 11 years ago, have stayed pretty steady with occasional backslides, none too serious. The weight comes off a lot faster when you are younger, that's for sure. But the recipes now are WAY better!!!

I wish I had the 1972 copy and that I knew of it then.I stay @ about 150 now . I'm very happy with that. I'm really happy with all the knowledge that i've learn from Dr. Atkins and everybody here.
What food journey WOW.

I'd use it. We've kind of switched to mostly coconut milk now, the kind that comes in a shelf-stable quart carton, from Trader Joe's. No refrigeration needed til opening.

TECHNICALLY it probably belongs on the same rung as nuts but I think in this case it's fine.

We just had a lovely cold shake, so refreshing after doing outdoor chores. Thanks for the help.
I love the coconut milk suggestion Char. I haven't tried it yet, will get some next time we are at TJ's. Here's something I have been wondering about. Are the no refrigeration till opened cartons of almond or coconut milk processed differently than the half gallons of almond milk in the refrigerator case? I guess they must be. Almond milk in the refrigerated cartons is much cheaper. I always keep a few of the small cartons in the cupboard, just in case.

Esther, the low carb journey really is life changing. Your success is wonderful.

The current Atkins program allows almond milk on induction, unsweetened almond milk is listed on the acceptable food list for phase 1/induction on their website.
