About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.

  1. Sounds great! I made my first mixed coffee drink today – a pumpkin spice latte. Did you submit this to the MoFo Iron Chef?

  2. This shake sounds delicious! Cacao Bliss is the best.

    Thanks for the comment on my WW blog! I answered there but I’ll copy it here too so you don’t have to go back – Your daily points allowance is set according to your current weight and height. If you start heavier you might get more points plus per day, and that will decrease as you lose. Even at my starting weight I only got 29, which is the lowest amount they will assign anyone. The weekly points and activity points definitely help me feel that I’m not restricted to a low amount every day.

    If you can find a master list, it would be interesting to try to follow the system without access to their website! Points plus values are calculated on protein, fat, carbs and fiber, so it can get complicated. For me, the site and the app are invaluable. I have definitely used the app in the grocery store aisle to help me make better choices more than once.
