I decided to try to be vegan for the month of September. I've been a vegetarian since 1989 but have never been able to give up dairy completely. So far it's been working out pretty well. The only non vegan thing I've had was 1 ginger cookie that The Decider brought in. Normally I would eat a dozen, so having just 1 doesn't seem too bad. I tried soy yogurt but just didn't like it so I decided to try So Delicious coconut milk yogurt which lives up to it's name (So Delicious). I'm not all that excited about yogurt but am trying to have breakfast every morning so I have yogurt with granola and ground up flax seeds. Another product I've discovered is NuGo Bars. They are made with chocolate but are dairy free and vegan. The Mocha Chocolate is really yummy. I've also switched from soy to almond milk because I think I get way too much soy in my diet. It has a really nice flavor.

I love So Delicious coconut milk yogurt! The Pina Colada and Strawberry are my favorite flavors, but they're all very good! I didn't know that NuGo Bars are vegan. I'll have to check them out.

Not all of the NuGo bars are vegan but the 2 that I've tried are. I've only tried the vanilla yogurt but will try Strawberry and maybe Pina Colada. Thanks for commenting.
