Y'all know I'm a yogurt addict (sorry, my North Carolinian is showing :P ) and I've always said that yogurt and ice cream are the two biggest reasons that I could never be vegan. Well, and honey, but I've already found a sub for that. Plus there's nooch for cheesiness...
But after discovering delicious vegan ice cream, the only thing in the way was yogurt.
Because (a) veganism is better for the environment, (b) I'm already a vegetarian and I don't like eggs, and (c) I like milk but it doesn't like me (I'm a bit lactose intolerant, so what I currently eat doesn't make me feel as good as I could).
But, again, I don't think everyone should be veg*n and I don't judge people for not being it. Veg*ns aren't better than anyone else - and not necessarily more environmentally friendly, either! I use boatloads of AC and love to travel (plus, I like fashion and am not a let's-all-wear-hemp-potato-sacks kind of girl) so being vegetarian is just how I try to even out my carbon footprint a bit, without compromising my desired lifestyle.
Because being eco-conscious SHOULDN'T be a burden. :)
Anyway...did you notice something new in the bowl?
I've eaten pomegranate before, but only from the packets of pomegranate seeds/innards, never straight from the fruit.
Unless...do you have any tricks to make eating pomegranates easier?
What's your favorite exotic fruit?
I'm curious about star fruit...have you tried it?
