I know I shall be shunned… but I had a brownie last night. Everyone else was eating tasty treats and there was absolutely nothing vegan on the menu save for salad. And c'mon, everyone's eating cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies, I'm not having a salad. So I had a brownie, and it was a serious disappointment. I wanted gooey chocolate. This was more like a dense cake. Tomorrow is the farmer's market in the town where I work. I really hope they have vegan brownies again!
My "no coffee" experiment was a complete failure. I'm only drinking 2 cups a day, so that is a good thing but I can't seem to quit meat and coffee at the same time. I have brought in soy milk and soy creamer for my coffee but I have been using the occasional coffeemate creamer. I figure the boatloads of chemicals counteracts the "sodium caseinate (a milk derivative - not a source of lactose)" that's listed on the ingredients list.
