Now get ready to feast your eyes on my new favorite VEGAN DESSERT!
It’s AHHHH-mazing. I’m working out the details still but recipe will come soon. I wish I could eat it every night. In fact, I’ve made it a few times already…
I’m not for sure how vegan the chocolate chips are though. I bought Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips that don’t have any milk or milk products in them but they are made in a plant that processes those items so the package said “may contain milk.” Use at your own discretion!
But I have a confession. I cheated. I was at a potluck and couldn’t resist trying some desserts….
I shared some of this with Daniel but I mostly ate it. It was amazing and I don’t regret it though I’m sure there’s some egg and milk in that cake doughnut and probably some in the lemon bar in the back. As for the Indian dessert up front, I have no idea what’s in it but it was tasty and probably the only vegan dessert out of the three. But everyone needs a cheat day. If you don’t, you’re my hero!
I actually didn’t make the Black Beans and Rice for dinner since we went to the Potluck but it was part of my meal plan for that day. So if you need a dinner idea, I highly suggest it.
For exercise I followed Day Five of the Five Day Workout Plan.
And I did more stretching! It’s SUPER important. So do it!
