runnerveggie 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.

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...
