That's not bad, right? That on many days I eat a whole lotta almonds and have also started mixing it up milk-wise with almond milk rather than just soy? 
Everything in moderation and I sorta assume there aren't that many almonds in almond milk anyway...

And does anybody know if almond milk offers more than just tastiness and a bit of calcium/vit e? 

Veganism with with occasional egg ( I know, that's then not veganism, I'm just using it to describe my diet ) is working well but I'm trying to maximise minerals and such to make sure I remain a healthy example and not a pale stereotype...

The commonly accepted term for your diet would be ovo-vegetarian.

Regarding almond milk, it is really pretty dilute if you are buying store bought, so, I really doubt it has much to offer besides the vitamins and minerals it is fortified with. I believe you are trying to gain weight? If so, soy is by far the better choice. Almond milk is very low in calories, about 40-60 per serving depending on which variety, whereas soy has around 100 calories per serving. Soy also has a fair amount of protein, while almond milk has almost none.

As far as eating almonds, they are calorie dense, so they are a good choice if you are trying to gain weight. Of course, you shouldn't eat them to the exclusion of other healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes.
