Today was exciting for me. My local Superstore opened up their Natural Foods section. I was like a kid in a candy store! Vegan cheese, Tofurkeys, ice cream, I can pick it all up there. One stop shopping! I picked up a case of Yoso soy yogurt. It came in three flavours: strawberry, vanilla and blueberry. I had the strawberry one today for a snack. Its probably the closest thing to the real thing that I've ever had. Very yummy.
I hope you all had a great Easter if you celebrated. We had a great trip down to Ottawa. We went to Lick's, a burger place. But they also have the greatest veggie burger ever. They even cook it on its own grill, with its own utensils, with a vegan whole wheat bun. I don't have a picture, but it pretty much looks like a burger. I also bought some kid-sized ones to take home with me (portion control, haha).
Easter dinner was great, I got stuffed on stuffed squash, and then for dessert, a mint cream egg! Billy's mom found these smooth dark chocolate eggs with mint fondant centres at Giant Tiger...and they're delish! If you've got a Giant Tiger near you, get over there!
Also, since this post seems to be about a bit of everything...I've now officially lost 20 pounds! I can't count how many times I've blogged about wanting to lose weight, and losing a few pounds here and there. I didn't want to be all talk, so I figured I'd wait til I hit the big 2-0 and then say something. Happy dance!
