Oh, woe is cheese.
I’ve come to a horrible realization that my (digestive) life is a significantly better when I steer clear of dairy. I don’t eat much of it anyway–cow’s milk makes me queasy and most white creamy substances are a no-go–but I am a big fan of the cheese.
It melts in your mouth, for God’s sake.
This really requires no major life adjustment for me. I already drink almond milk and coconut milk and whatnot. And while I refuse to put a label (other than vegetarian) on my diet, I eat like 90% vegan anyway. But, goddamn, I liked that 10% of cheese… And frozen yogurt. BUTTER.
It’s gonna be ok.
Exhibit A: coconut milk ice cream peanut butter potato chip sundae (not normal).
Whether you’re dairy-free or not, you can enjoy the strange but (I think) delicious breakfast I’ve been eating lately.
- ½ cup prepared quinoa (I used red quinoa)
- 1 cup milk (I use almond)
- fruit, fresh and/or dried
- coconut flakes or chips
- nut butter
- Just combine everything and eat
- Tah dah
It’s basically muesli (or “overnight oats” in blogger world) but with quinoa instead of oats. I eat it like cereal happen to think it is the jam but I think most people would hate it. I like it because it keeps me full, but the toppings are key for that; I add peanut butter and coconut chips and other protein- and fat-heavy items to fill it out.
Also, since I’m pretty sure it’s never been seen in the Sweet Tater world, this is what my hair looks like straight. It has looked like this once (in this picture) in the last seven years and probably won’t happen again so live it up.
