Someone told me 41 is lots of fun.
I said 41 is when your health’s undone.
But I was probably just being pessimistic. You see, it was my birthday yesterday.
This is one of those weeks where food and weight and health and everything just feels like drudgery. I would imagine all the pollen-related crud I’ve been experiencing the last two weeks would be to blame, but that would be too easy, wouldn’t it?
However, in the midst of this drudgery, I discovered something that could potentially change my life (and waistline) forever!
For us strict vegans, one of the things we tend to miss the most is dairy. Instead of cheese, we usually opt for Nutritional Yeast. Instead of milk, we opt for one of several different types of vegetable milk, or none at all in my case. Instead of ice cream, we usually opt for Sorbet…which is delicious, by the way!
And then I found the So Delicious company.
I squealed a little as I put it in my cart.
I have to say, though, the taste is even better. Because they’re made with coconut milk, they have just a slight coconut aftertaste that is SO good. I found some whole grain flax and bran flakes I was going to snack on, and ended up crumpling some of them over it.
It was heaven, people. Sheer heaven.
So, as far as birthdays go…this one really doesn’t rank at all. Work. Home. Grocery Store. Etc.
However, I will cherish my birthday find! And pray for the strength not to overindulge!
What’s your favorite vegan dessert?
