I hope you all had fun with the 6 lies and a truth – your answers cracked me up!!
#1 was the truth – I was born with RED hair!! Which quickly turned into my white blonde hair!!! :
Some of you were close though, I wore BRIGHT YELLOW uniforms at my Christian school!! Grey and banana yellow! BELCH! I’ll see if I can find some pictures for you guys!
I thought I would do a quick post on "Things I Can’t live Without”
#1 – Earth Balance Butter – this stuff tastes just like butter, I use it in everything anyone would normally use “butter” for – even baking and popcorn! It’s 100% Vegan too…
#2 - Go Good Ice Cream – SO YUMMY! As I said before this stuff is heaven sent (and only Canadian from what I hear!) It is an amazing ice cream substitute – I would probably still eat it even if I magically could eat dairy again – because it’s so tasty!
#3 – Coconut milk – not this one specifically, but when I’m in the mood for something creamy this does the trick! I love my rice cooked in coconut milk with a wee bit of sugar!!
#4 – Nut butters! I know they aren’t a dairy substitute, but whenever I miss thick creamy things, peanut/almond butter come in handy!
#5 – The Decadent “dairy free” Chocolate chips! These are amazingly rich and delicious! I get them at Superstore/Loblaws and they are $5 for this huge bag!! Life saver!!!
#6-Unsweetened Almond Breeze Vanilla – I know the bloggy world has already found this gem! I prefer it over soy milk. It is a fantastic milk substitute, think and creamy!!!
#7 and #8 Mayonnaise (not this one specifically) and Avocado! Again creamy substitutes!! Add 1/3 avocado to a smoothie and you have a rich creamy “milk shake”. Mayonnaise of course is great for making homemade salad dressings!!
Well there you have it! My “must have’s for living a dairy free lifestyle!!
BEFORE I FORGET the lovely people from PEELED Snacks emailed me and wanted to let you know that they are giving away free samples of their products at Starbucks!!!
I know I still haven’t done my review yet (oops) but these are soft, sweet and amazing!
Apricot was my favourite, so give it a try today!!
PS. YAY it’s Friday – you deserve a coffee and some yummy dried fruit! That being said, what is your typical Starbucks order??
Mine – decaf, soy, 1/2 sweet peppermint latte – yes I am a high maintenance orderer!
I would love to find a new drink though, this is getting BORING!!
