Silken Chocolate Vegan Pudding and I have stopped using DEODORANT
Oh YES, I DID!!! Chocolate pudding is comfort in any shape or form. This version is completely vegan and easy on the waste without using any chemicals or weird foods nobody keeps in the cabinet. It’s simply Silken tofu, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. That was it.
I will have the recipe down below, of course. My inspiration was from the “Forks Over Knives” cookbook, but I had to change it amd make it more palatable for our tastes so I don’t mind putting the details down below.
A couple of things going on in the Bolisig household right now. We recently learned what the urban meaning of “Crunchy” happened to be. We had so much fun taking “crunchy tests” to monitor just how crunchy we actually are. Which happens to be on the higher side of the crunch-o-meter. With that being said, I should show you all just what I mean.
Adjective. Used to describe persons who have adjusted or altered their lifestyle for environmental reasons. Crunchy persons tend to be politically strongly left-leaning and may be additionally but not exclusively categorized as vegetarians, vegans, eco-tarians, conservationists, environmentalists, neo-hippies, tree huggers, nature enthusiasts, etc.
Also used to describe establishments where alternative foods and products are sold, i.e. natural food stores.
Modified derivative of granola.
“I need more crunchy guys in my life. I’m so tired of dating preppy metrosexual assholes.”
“I’m heading out to the crunchy store to pick up some fair trade chocolate and tea tree oil, do you need anything?”
Now that we cleared that up, I should talk a bit about how I have stopped using deodorant. It was so scary the first two days. The thought started when I was doing my Juice Fast at the beginning of the month. I was putting toxins in my pits every night and it was really starting to bother me the more and more I fasted. If I am over here trying to rid my body of chemical toxins then why am I continuing to put more and more into my body every night?
So I googled how to make my own B. O. supplies. It’s a process. All the shea butter and essential oils and not to mention some kind of clay. I decided that I needed a simplier solution. If my diet is so clean and without chemicals and animal products maybe I wouldn’t even NEED deodorant. So I looked up other ways to stay fresh. Lemon came up a bunch as well as vinegar. So I went with lemon first. Trust me with this, I sniffed and sniffed my pits ALL DAY LONG. Had the husband sniffing too. And what do you know, I SMELL AMAZING. Kinda like maple syrup. YEP.. I smell like breakfast treats. I occasionally rub a lemon in my pits during the day before I work out, but truthfully it’s just for peace of mind cuz I don’t believe I actually need it. Happy girl over here. He has stopped using it too. He also smells amazing. No scent whatsoever. Happy wifey over here too.
