Moo is Bad For You

If you open my fridge, you won't find milk, butter, cream cheese, yogurt, sour cream, cheese, buttermilk, whipping cream, half-n-half...........I miss it!!  But not nearly as much as PC. 
So what to use instead??

Curly has her almond milk in the fridge--chocolate and vanilla.  She is not a rice milk girl and she has to keep her milk up high on the table so Bee can't get it.
Bee has rice milk and coconut milk.  We try to alternate between the two.  I've heard of hemp milk and if I can find it, we might try some.  And no, you can't get high from hemp milk.

Instead of butter we use vegetable shortening or coconut oil.  I've heard of a product by Earth's Balance that is a vegan spread but I haven't seen it yet.

Bee enjoys coconut yogurt and ice cream for a sweet treat.  Even Curly and Tiger enjoy those.  The rice yogurt wasn't quite as popular around here.

There are ways to make your own "buttermilk" and other dairy subs

We've tried rice "cheese" but it wasn't the same.  Maybe we'll try that one again since we've gone without the real deal for a while.  But next on our list is to try this "cheese."
