Menu Plan June 13-19: Trying Some Vegan Recipes

My husband has decided that he would like to go back to his vegan diet for awhile to help him drop a couple of pounds. I am ok with it because his parents have been supplying us with so much fresh produce lately. This weekend they gave us a big bag of peaches from one of their trees. If you are interested in a great vegan website check out Green and Crunchy. This is one of my favorite places to get vegan recipe inspiration.

  1. How do you make Almond Milk yogurt? We switched over to Almond Milk a year ago, and I' d love to see some recipes with it!

  2. Lorrie I just wanted to take a minute and tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog! Each day I look forward to reading your thoughtful posts and you offer such great insight on Natural living...thank you!

  3. I found you @ Menu Plan Monday. Great blog -- LOVE the concept. I'm on a similar journey, too.

    I'd like to learn more about almond milk yogurt as well. I have a yogurt maker. Do you use teh same recipe, just sub almond milk? And what sort of yogurt do you use?

  4. Honestly I am not sure how I am going to make almond milk yogurt. I have a yogurt maker and have made lots of cow's milk yogurt. I am not sure what I am going to use as a starter. I have an email sent to the blog I got the idea from to find out. I will let you know as soon as I know something.
    If you do not have a yogurt maker there are ways you can still make it using your oven. I may have to do a post on the subject.
