Former ‘Lost’ star Jorge Garcia makes his own almond milk

Jorge Garcia of Lost fame is definitely not lost in the kitchen.

The 37-year-old vegetarian actor continues to show his willingness to delve into the culinary world head first. From meatless Sloppy Joe’s on New Year’s Eve to now homemade almond milk. Move over Silk and Almond Breeze.

Garcia recently kicked the dairy habit leading him to the delicious world of almond milk (my personal favorite) but he noticed the store bought brands included ingredients that didn’t fit into his dietary guidelines.

On his blog Further Dispatches Garcia writes:

Having given up dairy not too long ago I couldn’t help but notice how many ingredients were actually in my store bought almond milk. Originally my first step toward changing my eating was to stay away from processed foods. So here I was finding myself taking a step backwards…
But now I make my own.

To see how Garcia AKA Hurley makes his own homemade almond milk visit his blog Further Dispatches.

And let me add, keep up the good work Jorge.
