I've been thinking about milk lately and cutting out cow's milk. I have been drinking almond milk for awhile and using it in my recipes. What are your thoughts on the nutritional benefits of cow's milk? If you don't drink cow's milk, what do you drink? Almond milk is cheaper than organic cow's milk and I can find coupons for it too. Here is a great list of organic coupons.
I've been really good about looking for coupons and being a wise shopper - inspired by some great money saving blogs and RunBlondie!

Today I was able to get out on my own and go to the bike store. I was educated on the components but I couldn't tell you much about them. The bike man let me know that I should look for a 50/51 cm bike and the cheapest one that they sold there was pretty cool looking but $500. Can I find one for about $200? I actually have zero space for one and would really like to borrow one. I don't know what to do. I have the two triathlons lined up - one April 17 and one June 26. I'm not sure if I'll get into this or not, so I'm stuck. I'm really not in a spot to spend $500 on it.
I learned about hemp 'fudge' from the Non Dairy Queen. The only thing I started adding to it was chocolate superfood.
I use 2 T hemp protein powder from Trader Joe's (*side note*: I just ordered Nutiva's Hemp protein powder from Amazon for $8.50 on subscribe and save - anyone tried it?TJ's is $10)
1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Superfood
1 to 1.5 T water
This isn't very sweet but then I add some TJ's creamy peanut butter and some whipped cream.
|I like to eat it right out of the bowl|
|but you could make it into nice balls too!|
|back in the bowl with some whipped cream. What a great treat!|
|one bowl treat|
a variation of 2 bite brownies
I mixed these ingredients:
2 cups oatmeal
1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 c maple syrup
2 T ground flax
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup coconut oil
1 ½ tsp vanilla
Then, I split the dough in half. To one half, I added 1/4 c cocoa, 1 scoop amazing grass (I'm obsessed) 1/2 square baker's chocolate, 2 T chocolate chips and 1/4 c coconut oil. I melted the coconut oil and chocolate, then added in the cocoa. This was one batch. The other batch - I added a mashed banana and 1/4 c coconut and then a handful of chocolate chips to half and blueberries to the other half. Fruity cookies = healthy, right?? Wink wink.
This is a great recipe and versatile. I love making vegan things - I ate alot of the dough before it was baked!
