So what did I tell my circle of friends when they started eliminating certain foods from their diets?
I told them they were crazy…nuts…asked them what the hell were they were going to eat now - rocks?
And then I decided to become a vegan.
Well, a kind of unofficial vegan, because I am not very good at it.
Last night after I had polished off a cup of soy milk ice cream (which by the way is gross) I tore apart my freezer like an animal going in for the kill. I knew there was a Milky Way candy bar in there somewhere that I had thrown in on Halloween night. And not one of those “fun size” bars (which to me are no fun at all because they are small) but a full size candy bar. Success – I devoured the full size sweetness in record time, almost chipping a tooth on its frozen goodness - it would have totally been worth it.
I didn’t look at the ingredients but I am pretty sure that Milky Ways are not vegan, with the word milk being in the name and all.
Like I said, I’m a bad vegan – but I am pretty good at enjoying sugar, and I ain’t giving it up.
The scent reminds me of something from my childhood that I can’t quite place my finger on, but I think it involved my grandma’s house and eating some sort of dough.
Sugar comes in a clear delicious balm as well as some lovely tinted colors like rose, plum, and honey that give your lips a sweet treat along with a tint of color. This stuff is addictive.
So next time you want to look and taste delicious, get
yourself some Sugar.
Tonight, post soy ice cream, I will coat my lips in this heavenly scent, hoping it will block the open can of frosting that is in my fridge out of my mind.
Pray for a Christmas miracle.
I don't see "vegan" clearly listed on the front of the can, but I'll be sure to double check the label.
