I stopped. Never worked. But I’ll issue regular challenges to myself throughout the year, randomly when opportunities come up. But the New Year New Me never was effective for me.
Last challenge was to swap out my favorite bad-for-me non-dairy creamer with this protein drink someone suggested was a perfect substitute. I was REALLY skeptical because I’ve tried dozens of idea, including protein shakes to no avail.
BUT: This one worked and I never looked back.
I thought about doing that. Assistant stuff. Autistic / smart kids / special needs stuff. But didn’t yet. Schools around here would want me to be strong-arm guy (I’ve seen how they operate here). So, no interview for me.
nah. Tried it for a girlfriend for six months in 1990 – not just vegan but raw food diet. I did it – it was fine – but I had no problem going back to meat ‘n stuff after we broke up.
heavy/light cream I’m fine with but half + half or milk in my coffee gives me gut aches.
I could go back. It wasn’t hard for me. I like messing around with my diet sometimes.
I know just enough about nutriients and what my body likes + doesn’t like to process that I could probably do most diets as long as I could find protein/carb/fat in them somewhere
Never tried. I used to make rice milk long ago. Nothing good for you in it, but it was ok. I like oat stuff, might give it a shot. Do you just grind up oatmeal + add water + sweet?
ok yah – it’s like making rice milk:
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
3 cups filtered water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 Medjool dates or 1-2 tablespoons liquid sweetener of choice
Pour the oats, water and any optional ingredients into your blender and blend on high until smooth.*
Strain the oat milk by pouring it through a nut milk bag (or cheese cloth) into a pitcher or bowl. Use your hands to squeeze the milk out of your nut milk bag. Once no more milk is coming out, you can discard the oat pulp. Refrigerate your oat milk until chilled.
Store your oat milk in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Shake thoroughly before using.
