I like it! It's not as creamy as soy but it has a nice, delicate taste.

B: large green juice

L: Amy's teriyaki bowl

D: four slices of thin rye bread with mashed avocado and diced tomato. One slice also had homemade sprouted hummus. Two slices had broccoli sprouts. In case you guys didn't know, avocado and broccoli sprouts are an absolutely divine combination.

Dessert: strawberry-banana "nice cream" with cinnamon

S: 1/3 of a dark chocolate bar with coconut shreds

It was kind of a light day today. Wasn't too hungry.

Also, I can't remember everything I ate yesterday, but I did have a doubleshot of wheatgrass juice (from homegrown wheatgrass!) with a pineapple juice chaser. It was pretty awesome.

I think it's a bit thinner, like 2% rather than whole milk. I tend to prefer soy milk by the glass or in cereal for this reason, but almond milk is great in tea and in cooking. I bought it to use as the base for a creamy garlic pasta sauce-- just sautee garlic and shallot in a pan, add the almond milk and a bit of flour as a thickener, and simmer for a while. It was awesome! If you don't like the almond milk by itself and don't want to waste the rest of the carton, let me know and I'll give you the full recipe. It has to be unsweetened original flavour, unless you like sweet pasta sauce.

Dark chocolate almond milk is delicious by the glass, though.

I just tried cashew milk this morning on my oatmeal. So creamy! Hopefully it won't bother my stomach like the soy and almond milks do.

I keep getting dinner and breakfast backwards...!

"breakfast" was rice, cooked with lots of fresh garlic, dandelion greens, and lamb's-quarters (an edible weed related to, and tasting like, spinach). I added some of my home-made vegan chili when it was cooked. Not bad!

Lunch was avocado sandwiches (avocado on rye bread). Water to drink, of course.

I've heard banana peel makes an awesome chip if you bake/fry/dehydrate it. Did you prep yours any special way, or was it completely raw?

Do the soy and almond milk you buy have carrageenan in them? That stuff will majorly irritate my tummy. It's hard to find plant milk without it, so I typically make my own. It's really easy.

Raw. I have a razor sharp knife thats my 'banana knife', I grab the banana with my teeth and flick the knife through it to cut off a slice. I havent yet cut off the tip of my nose
The trick with whole bananas is two fold. If theyre under ripe theyre sappy and astringent, so avoid that. Also some brands are abnormally fibery and tough. Organic more often has the first problem, which is fixed by ripening more. Conventional more often has the latter problem.

The most ubiquitous brand here is Alpro, which doesn't contain carrageenan.

There is a website that lists products that contain and do not contain carrageenan. If you scroll down a bit on the site below, it lists plant based milks and other products and which ones do not have carrageenan. Just thought it might be helpful in case you haven't already seen it.

http://www.cornucopia.org/shopping-g...h-carrageenan/

Homemade plant milk is awesome too though! I used to make my own flaxmilk all the time and occasionally almond milk or coconut milk. Haven't tried homemade rice milk yet.

Oats are my favorite grain, but I haven;t thought of having them this way. I've had them with banana, and I know what the peel tastes like, but could you post your recipe?

Sorry about that- I hate discord too. I hope you're feeling better now. (There was a veggie-friendly restaurant in my area that used to serve a great tempeh reuben, and you could have it with vegan cheese if you wanted. It was my go-to meal when I wanted something hot, greasy, and tasty.)

Well, I dont really believe in 'recipes' per se so this will sound vague but its how I do it. It just makes for variety
Roughly 160 grams rolled oats, roughly 1.25 cups water, some small amount of some mild vegetable like finely diced carrot, sweet potato, snow peas, dwarf mallow, etc. cook it up until any more would burn it, not long lol, then take off heat and stir in roughly 2 tsp of a mixture of 1 part black pepper to 5 parts turmeric.
Dwarf mallow leaves are great in oatmeal, in my opinion. Its a common 'weed' that turns into a vegetable if you water it. The dried roots have been used as toothbrushes, just chew the end, scrub the teeth, cut off the chewed bit and save the rest for further uses.

I don't understand the saline. At first I thought you meant you suffer from summer allergies and needed saline nasal spray or something, but that doesn't sound right... Please elaborate, I'm intrigued!

My diet is naturally very low in sodium since I grow most everything I eat except rice and flour, I also live in a semi-arid climate. The result is I'm at abnormally high risk for hyponatremia [sodium deficiency] all summer [its a risk in all areas in summer, really, anyone who gets inexplicably weak, tired, or sick feeling in warm weather despite keeping hydrated should read up on it, anyway..]. The standard medical treatment is salt pills but those damage the stomach lining. Other people just eat very salty snack foods but this year I'm fasting 17 hours a day [optional religious thing] so I just drink salt water. It tastes quite good, really.
I also keep a little suspicious looking zip bag full of salt in my hiking backpack just in case.
