Ben & Jerry's has just changed the mutha fuggin game! After 2 years of recipe testing, they're releasing their 1st dairy-free ice cream later this month! With all the other vegan frozen dairy companies out there, I'm surprised B&J's didn't do this 5-10 years ago! But, I'm certainly not complaining. I'm excited! The 4 vegan flavors set to debut are: Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chunky Monkey, Coffee Caramel Fudge, and P.B. & Cookies. Yippee!! Let's give 'em each a try and figure out our faves...Thank me later : )
Sorry guys. But since yesterday, there's been a new study all over the news that proves bacon causes cancer. In fact, bacon, ham, hot dogs, and lunch meats have the same cancer risk as cigarettes or asbestos! Red meat is on the list too. Remember, "If we continue to kill the animals, the animals will eventually kill us."
Thanksgiving is my VERY favorite holiday because all my loved ones are home from school or work and we get to spend quality time together pigging out. Unfortunately, all the over-eating can lead to unwanted pounds and possibly the flu. (Hence, the "flu season" right after the holidays.) Well substituting vegan ingredients in a few of your favorite holiday dishes can help you stay healthy during this time of year. For example, DAIYA Cheese is a fantastic dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free cheese that melts better than most fake cheeses, and tastes great! It's really melty so I like to mix it with other veggie cheeses, like FOLLOW YOUR HEART or TRADER JOES soy blend. Try em in your mac n cheese, string bean casserole, grilled cheese sandwich, enchiladas, nachos, etc. You'll be happy you did!…and so will your abs.
COFFEE DRINKERS REJOICE!!!
Thanks to comedienne Meshelle (IndieMomOfComedy), I've discovered an herbal tea that tastes just like coffee!!! With flavors like Vanilla Nut, Hazel Nut, French Roast, or Chocolate; Teeccino is mostly organic and super delicious! Grab a box at Whole Foods or your local heath food store and enjoy this smooth taste without the chemicals, caffeine, and acidity of coffee. It pairs perfectly with a splash of So Delicious Coconut Milk Dairy-Free Creamer (in French Vanilla or Hazel Nut). Yumm! You'll thank me later.
EATING HEALTHY ON THE GO
We all have great intentions on eating healthier this year, but as soon as we leave the house (or go outta town), we’re tempted to eat the first discounted McCrappy-King combo meal we see. Here are 4 tips to eating healthy on the go…
1) Bring food with you (in your purse, glove compartment, canvas bag, or luggage.)
• Stock up on HEALTH BARS, (without white sugar or corn syrup added). I like peanut butter chocolate chip Lara Bars, Kind Bars, Greens + Chocolate bars, and Organic Food Bars.
• Pack fresh whole FRUIT or dried fruit (without added white sugar). They both travel well. Or quickly blend a fruit smoothie (without yogurt) and pour it in your travel coffee mug. Or chop up various fruit to make a delicious fruit salad. Trust me; when you pull the salad out later, everyone will be asking where you bought it.
• Put your...
Cow tits that is...
HOW TO BE DAIRY FREE
Been thinking about becoming a vegan, but you just can't imagine giving up cheese? Yeah. I felt the same way years ago. But after studying all the dis-eases that can be prevented from eliminating animal mucus from my diet, I was determined to give non-dairy items a chance. Afterall, cow milk is for baby cows! Yup; just like human breast milk is for human babies (and for kinky husbands...but I digress).
A lot of you have asked me how to substitute animal secretions (Oops, I mean dairy products), for non-dairy alternatives. There are a lot of options out there and I've sampled almost all of them over the years. Here's a list of some of my faves. If I'm missing any good ones please let me know... ("read more" over there) -------------->>>
Whenever I tell someone I’m a vegan vegetarian they respond with, “OK, but you eat chicken, right?” No, I reply. I don’t eat animal products. I’m a vegetarian. They say “Oh, but you eat fish at least, right?” NO! I’m a vegetarian. I eat VEGE-tation. Defeated they then ask,“Umph, then what DO you eat?” So here are examples of what I may eat in a day:
BREAKFAST – an organic fruit & juice smoothie (no ice cream, yogurt, or chemical powders added. I use bananas to make it creamy & sweeter) – or a bowl of naturally sweetened cereal w/ vanilla almond milk – or tofu scramble w/ veggie bacon & naturally sweetened waffles w/ REAL maple syrup (not maple flavored corn syrup)
LUNCH – an avocado sandwich on gluten-free bread w/ plenty of organic lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, & sprouts w/ a bag of kettle chips – or a large fresh salad of lots of chopped organic produce w/ homemade vinaigrette dressing or non-dairy Goddess dressing – or a Portobello mushroom burger...
