For the love of (Soy) Milk

I’ve always been mildly lactose intolerant, so the adjustment to soy milk for me was really none at all because for as long as I can remember I’ve been substituting regular milk for soy in everything from tea and coffee to cereal and in cooking and baking. I’ve even used soy cream in cooking – but lets leave that for another “For the love of…” entry.

Alpro Soya Milk

Alpro Soy products used to be my favourite when living in the UK, everything from their cream to yogurt to flavoured milks I used to absolutely love. Unfortunately I don’t seem to get the same selection here although if I did it would definately be on my permanent shopping list!! I used to love their soy chocolate milk too, full of chocolatey goodness!

So Good Soy Milk

With my limited selection however, So Good Soy Milk is amazing, they have a huge range of sweetened and unsweetend soy milks, with various flavours ranging from plain to vanilla.

The Verdict: This one is definately on my permanent shopping list. I do prefer the individual serving cartons though, as I find that I go through periods where I just don’t drink it fast enough before it goes off or don’t have enough cereal to go with it. So this way, I feel I can have what I want in moderate amounts with┬áno pressure to finish the massive carton super fast. And since I’m the only one that drinks it in my house, it’s perfect!

Vaniila Almond Crisp

Vanilla Almond CrispI had incredibly high expectations of this Vanilla Almond Crisp by Peace Cereals, and to be honest, it TOTALLY lived up to expectations! I LOVED it!

Although I have to say I prefer the ginger one I had before, but this is equally good!

Verdict – it will remain on the shopping list for the future!

I must apologise for the short, but sweet update – I promise you’ll have a more detailed update from me and how i’m feeling soon!

Just a side note – there have been a few new additions to the blog – some tasty websites to look at, plus an all new about me section, which I know you’re all DYING to read (not). I’ll continue to update, hopefully you’ll continue to read!

Peace Out

Breakfast is meant to be your most important meal of the day. For me however, it’s not. For me, it’s always some kind of chore, having to decide what to eat before midday..it’s jut difficult. Recently however, i’ve been content with fresh fruit and some soy yogurt, but it gets boring after awhile to always have the same thing. So, I went in search of something else, and I found some awesome cereal.

RaspberryGingerFor all you ginger lovers out there, this one is definately for you. Made with organic raw cane sugar and brown rice syrup to add the sweetness, this raspberry ginger cereal topped with unsweetened soy milk is perfect in the morning.

Verdict: Loved it! Definately putting this one on the shopping list again, right next to the banana muffin ingredients!

However, before I buy this one again, Peace Cereal do a variety of other organic vegan cereals made with brown rice syrup or raw cane sugar, so after I gobbled this box up, I went down and picked up their Vanilla Almond cereal yesterday, I haven’t tried it yet, but as soon as I do, you’ll be the first to know!
