Tea And Milk

I love tea with milk, I use to drink the beverage this way frequently in my younger days.

I don’t drink tea too often right now, currently, lately I haven’t ingested any of those beneficial brewed leaves.

I don’t remember the last time I had a hot cup, although, I do have unopened boxes of herbal teas lingering around my home waiting to be consumed.

It’s been months back I think since I’ve had tea and It has definitely been a few years since I’ve actually had black tea. I avoid caffeine as much as possible so if I drink any regular tea it is very sparingly.

Herbal tea is, of course, naturally caffeine free, and even though black tea comes decaffeinated there is still a little remainder of caffeine left behind in the manufacturing.

However, tea with milk will always be a great favorite of mine, whether with a plant-based milk or with a plant-based cream.

There was a So Delicious brand french vanilla (my favorite flavor) creamer that I first tried last year. I drank the beverage straight out from the container with a straw. It was nice, cold, and tasty, so I know how good the drink would taste poured in a hot cup of tea. It was made with coconut milk.

Soy Milk And Cornbread

 

The day before yesterday I headed to one of my local grocers to see if they had any of my favorite brand of vanilla soy milk back in stock.

I had to get my milk, and I was in luck there was four half a gallons of the product left upon the shelf.

I then went to get me some corn muffin/cornbread mix to prepare at home. I love my cornbread too! I haven’t had any within a week or two.

Nature’s Path Cereal

 

The early part of last year I had tried Nature’s Path cereals for the very first time and I was not disappointed.

I tried the Sunrise Crunchy Maple and I loved the taste. I knew if I liked the maple I’d love the vanilla.

What attracted me to the product was that is was organic, vegan/vegetarian, non gmo, and made with an array of wholesome ingredients.

I’ll be buying more of these two flavor cereals within the future.

Sunrise Maple Crunch:

INGREDIENTS:

Brown rice flour*, whole grain corn meal*, cane sugar*, corn meal*, yellow corn flour*, inulin*, maple syrup*, quinoa*, natural maple flavor, flax seeds*, sea salt, buckwheat flour*, amaranth*, molasses*, tocopherols (vitamin E). *Organic. Produced in a facility that uses tree nuts, peanuts and soy.

I Dream And Scream For Ice Cream Alternatives

When I went to one of my local supermarkets months back to buy a few pints of vanilla Almond Dream non dairy frozen dessert I found out the store had discontinued the item.

I liked the product yet maybe the item didn’t sell very well there.

The other non dairy frozen desserts I also like is made by So Delicious brand. Their cashew milk vanilla and soy vanilla ice cream alternatives taste very nice and refreshing.

They’re all non GMO vegan products.

I wish there was a non dairy and non GMO vegan toasted almond frozen dessert bar out there on the market if there isn’t one out there already that I’m unaware about. I’d like to eat one made from natural ingredients and top quality preparation.

 

So Chocolate

My mother made some chocolate cupcakes a few days ago with cake mix. The aroma smelled so good as the dessert baked.

I don’t eat chocolate. The doctor told me to stay away from chocolate and coca cola when I was a young child. I use to get unbearable stomach aches and my physician had determined the reason was from my consumption of eating the chocolate and drinking the coca cola.

I was allowed to drink 7up and Sprite and other light colored sodas but no Dr. Pepper or Rootbeer. I never liked Dr. Pepper and Rootbeer anyway.

A paramedic once asked me if I had any allergens and I told him about what the doctor had diagnosed many years ago before and the medical technician told me that it was probably due to the caffeine in the chocolate and dark sodas.

Chocolate was my favorite flavor when I was a kid I wanted chocolate everything. Chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake, chocolate donuts, chocolate candy, especially Hershey’s kisses and candy bars.

However, I did of course, leave all of the chocolate alone. Vanilla became my favorite flavor, chiefly french vanilla.

My mother’s cupcakes reminded me of the old days. I remember when we use to bake cakes all of the time and how she would buy chocolate morsels and make homemade chocolate chip cookies from scratch.

As I was growing up I ate yellow cakes with white icing along with oatmeal, ginger, coconut, and vanilla cookies.

I haven’t been too much of a sweets eater since my teens on up into adulthood, however, I do occasionally get those natural “sweet tooth” urges, those moments when I desire to indulge in a tasty dessert, or two. I just eat health consciously, ensuring the products are made with the specific ingredients of quality and preference.

 

Milk And Cereal

I just got finished eating four cups of dairy- free Silk alternative vanilla yogurt a few hours ago earlier this morning after I got home.

The product is so delicious. The vanilla beans are visibly mixed in with a satisfying flavor that doesn’t get boring.

I love the consistency of the product such a perfect smooth thick texture when stirred.

I hadn’t  purchased any in a while had to pick some up today along with a container of Silk vanilla soy milk that I ran out of to go along with my creamy wheat Bob’s Red Mill Farina that I eat at any time of the day.

Sometimes I’ll mix it with a portion of the Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran those two hot cereals taste good cooked together over the stove blended in with a little brown sugar and ginger.
