About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribbles and Scrambles ~ Thirty Day Vegan...Day 14

We tried this recipe last night. Some of the comments are helpful and interesting, too.

Over coconut ice cream (not the mouth feel of the real deal, but works when you've got a wicked bad ice cream craving - kind of fudgsicle texture). We used Almond Milk though. It was a nice treat. Creamy. Decadent.

Rob shared that now that he's kicked his final bits of plague he's feeling terrific on his new no-animal lifestyle. However, he is looking forward to the kick-off of the Flexitarian part of the experiment. In other words, he is planning for his reentry into eating occasional meat dishes. Told the people he was talking to that he had his first meat meal planned out in his mind. Hmmm. Wonder what it will be. I also wonder if it won't have some kick-him-in-the-head negatives. This stands to be seen.

The TJ's pizza crust was okay. I like Naan as pizza crust way better. So I'm going to have to perfect that Vegan Naan recipe so we can do that.

Okay - this is starting to sound "normal" for you - but cost prohibitive to me. Alas...I am too fond of my animal products!

BUT that said, I have an aunt and uncle who started leaving off meat and they feel tons better. They only eat meat occasionally and they like the change in how they feel.

Meat - maybe I could live without it if I knew I could eat it occasionally. But cheese? Man - I like my sharp cheddar entirely too much on my whole wheat bagel in the morning!!

Cheese, bagel. Almost tempting. : ) It is getting normal, though. Really. I'm kind of digging a lot of what I'm eating. I do think I will go ahead and merge into flexatarianism. But...to what degree? Probably just to avoid being a pain in the hind-end if someone invites us over for dinner. : )
