Day 7 - Soy Delicious


I have been an advocate of Soy Ice cream for quite some time. Like many people out there (and for good reason!) dairy has never settled well with me. Not to say I would pass up chocolate espresso gelato if placed in front of me, but for the past few years Ive done what I can to avoid the dairy scene.

Friday night we went to a campfire gathering and brought along some ice cream. We brought two versions of soy cream one being So Delicious Mint Marble Fudge which I highly recommend. We also brought along some god old fashioned cookie dough icecream. I avoided eye contact with the carton the entire night, a vegan can never be too safe around such a thing!

This afternoon I was sitting in the backseat of the car mindlessly snacking on triscuits when I remember the fat content of the soy cream. Was I really eating anything any better for me? Realizing my mistake I threw down the triscuits and grabbed my bag of cherries and grapes. Ive learned to NEVER leave the house without sweet fruit for snacking.

The triscuits were delicious, but of course they were! It's that salt and saturated fat that tastes so wonderful. Just something to think about next time you pick up a snack. If you're eating out of boredom, as I often do, go for veggies or fruit and you can eat to your hearts desire.
