Hiiiii! It’s been a while. A long while. Our sincerest apologies. Like. […]
Almond milk is effin’ expensive. I usually buy mine from the Bliss Juicery ’cause it’s down the road from my place and also their milks are FRESH and amazing. But still expensive. I mean I get it, almonds are ridiculously expensive all by themselves! Nevermind the extra stuff that goes in, plus all the time it takes… right?
Now obviously a lot of us don’t want or need the nasties that go into processed yoghurt these days, so I have been waiting with very bated breath and literally searching everywhere (ask Lexi, she’ll confirm) for coconut yoghurt in South Africa. Since I had some in NYC last year, I was hooked! Imagine my excitement when I found these guys at the Waterfront (Food shed) at Yokos.
There is a massive vegan movement happening around the world at the moment. I think more and more people are becoming aware of the impact that the animal agriculture industry is having on the environment. Both Kyla and myself have not made the move to complete vegan lifestyle, however we both believe in minimising meat consumption and being aware of what we eat and how it affects both our bodies and the world in general.
Listen, I am all about the smoothie breakfasts these days (in fact I have a smoothie recipe coming up soooooon as well!) but some days you just want to EAT something right? And finding a vegan/gluten free/dairy free/sugar free option is kinda difficult. I am not vegan – not yet anyway – but I do believe that avoiding meat in general is better for the planet AND ourselves. Besides, being allergic to eggs makes vegan breakfast kind of a natural decision. Now, it’s easy to be vegan if you are unhealthy. It is not easy to be vegan if you are trying to cut out wheat/gluten and sugar as well. That’s when you gotta start getting creative. Eating dinner for breakfast can be a thing, but sometimes rice and kale isn’t really that appealing before 7am in the morning…
