- Say, “Salut” to all things butter, cream, and milk. This includes milk chocolate (dark chocolate is better anyway), sour cream, coffee creamer, whey, casein, lard, anything with carmine in the ingredients, etc. You will definitely have to read the labels on all of your favorites this week. They creep into everything. Even your typical bag of barbecue potato chips may have milk ingredients in them.
- Try a milk substitute like almond, rice or coconut milk. These are all based on your personal preference. I personally like almond milk, almond milk creamer and coconut creamer. I’m not a big soy milk fan, but you may think it’s “all that.”
- Search for a Vegan dessert on the web and make it. Surprise the “fam” and don’t tell them it’s Vegan until after you receive rave reviews. If you get a thumb’s down – tell them nothing and move on to the next recipe.
- Time to try a new grain and a new fruit/vegetable!
