Nature's Path Hemp Plus Waffles

I didn't grow up eating breakfast. My mother wasn't much of a breakfast eater herself so i guess she just assumed we weren't either. I was rarely hungry first thing in the morning, but when i was at my grandma's house for the night i would wake up and she would make my favorite breakfast: Dunk egg and toast. I'm from a mennonite background and my grandma is ex-amish and speaks Pennsylvania Dutch(it's pretty much a mix of german and english) so when we say "dunk" we pronounced it "doonk." Some people may know dunk eggs as Sunnyside Up.
This is all to say that i do eat breakfast more these days, especially if it's at a restaurant. At home i sometimes just go for a piece of toast and earth balance. If i'm feeling like eating something a bit more substantial i go for one of Nature's Path Hamp Plus waffles with peanut butter and maple syrup. Sometimes they taste less than perfect and i'm not sure if it's my 30 year old toaster oven's fault or the waffle itself, but when it's perfect, it's just damn tasty! Almost chewy, that yummy healthy taste.....
They're almost always on sale at New Seasons for about $2.50 for 8 waffles.

Vegan Milk Chocolate!

Apologies for the time lapse. I'm one of those bloggers i don't like, you know, the kind that doesn't add to their blog every other day.....Now i realize how hard it is to keep up with something like that. Especially since i don't have internet at home...

So for today i am talking about Ricemilk Choco:

Dark chocolate is lovely, but it's not my favorite and when i lived in Germany for a year (i wasn't vegan) i ate their delicious inexpensive milk chocolate like it was going out of style. My favorite being Milka Sahne Creme. I was really skeptical when i first saw Terra Nostra's Ricemilk Choco. I just didn't think rice milk would make it as creamy delicious as the real thing. Ricemilk Choco is similar to the Sahne Creme bar in that it's got a center that's more creamier than the outside. Make sense? It's just freakin' delicious and I brought a bar to share with my friends, Joanna and Matt, for out America's Next Top Model Premiere party. i had 3 "lines" and was wanting more....
So, when dark chocolate just won't do it for you, try one of these. They sell for about $3-3.50.
