I've had a plethora of baked vegan goods from the luxury of my own oven. However, after going vegan for a few months, I truly believe there is something wretched in the chemicals I used to put into my body. I know I may be alone here, but after going from a long list of chemicals (not ingredients, chemicals. Ever read the back of one of these boxes?) to a list of ingredients I can trust, I can feel a difference, especially in my mood. And no, I can't just have one. It's like telling an alcoholic they can have just one drink. No such thing for me.
I'm not a scientist of any kind, but my mood was almost as bad as the chemicals, seriously. Especially during that time of month. (I don't even know why I'm italicizing this, we all know what it means) I especially miss it during that time. Stress, hormones, emotions gone awry- it seems like diabetic heaven was the only thing that would help.
Alas, I may not have the convenience of eating these lab-made desserts, but I do have the luxury of baking a homemade dessert. Even if it takes longer, it's so worth the wait. (I did however want to drop-kick some lady at the grocery store for her Suzy Q's today. One day at a time.)
