A little known fact about Kat & I, we do not eat any dairy! How can this be? Everything has dairy when you grow up Mexican! Cheese! Sour Cream! I know I know! I thought she was crazy too when she told me she didn’t eat it. But, after a few months, I noticed a difference in not eating it; how bloated I was because of the dairy, and how it affected my mood.
Almost four years later- and we still don’t eat it. Once in a while, when it is in desserts or if someone cooks with it, we will have some. But usually it is not in our diet. At first it was very hard, believe me. But after eating like this for years it has gotten easier and actually I’ve learned that there is still plenty of foods I can eat and still enjoy. How else do you think I’ve been able to keep my plump figure? 🙂
One place that we found to be an amazing place for vegan food is Kitchen 17! On Wednesdays they have the deep dish pizza special, and let me tell you it is so delicious that I don’t even feel like I am missing out on Chicago style deep dish! We ordered the fully loaded and I swear I was in food heaven! If you want to see how awesome vegan food can be, go here!
As you can see we basically killed this deep dish, just us two!
& of course I had to try out the awesome vegan chocolate brownie! I love trying vegan desserts at restaurants because it reaffirms that vegan doesn’t mean nasty. Yes, both were very yummy!
