This past weekend I watched a couple documentaries that really made me think. While I have been “veg” for a while I have never really tried to give up that all too flavorful and yummy dairy. If I am honest I am a true lover of all cheeses, I have not yet met one that I do not like. After watching the information about dairy, the health aspects, I have decided that I am going to try a week diary free.
I am not making a proclamation that I am a vegan, and I will probably never give up my love for beautiful leather handbags, but I am going to try being a little “veganish.” Luckily I have a husband that goes along with pretty much anything.
So first up on the vegan dinner plan was black beans and rice with vegan sausage. The sausage was more for D than me, but I enjoyed it too. I LOVE black beans and rice, and I have mastered my secret recipe, which really only consists of one secret ingredient! When I was in college in FL there was a little cuban restaurant called Espo’s that served the BEST black beans and rice, I still dream about that place.
For dessert, because I have the biggest sweet tooth known to man, I made a little non-diary wild berry smoothie. Not exactly ice cream, but it was pretty good if I do say so.
