Guys… today is my last day of work this week! I’m so excited to be heading off to Nantucket and am in desperate need for some rest and relaxation, as well as some vitamin D and salt air!
I want to link up with Jenn to discuss a new to-me staple in my diet. Diaya Cheese.
But before there we have a few matters to discuss:
1. HAPPY FIRST DAY OF JULY! Rabbit Rabbit! When did this all happen? I feel like June went by in a flash, but with so many fun things to look forward to in July and August, I’m not so sad about it!
2. Like I said before, I’m heading out tomorrow morning to go up to Nantucket. I have a blog post scheduled for Thursday, but other than that, I won’t be back until Monday. I’m really looking forward to spending time away from the computer, enjoying the island air, and spending time with the BF. And of course, being patriotic and festive #AF.
3. Okay… I’m slowly introducing non-liquid food back into my diet, I’ve been keeping it simple. But part of keeping meals simple means they typically end up being pretty bland. My usual diet of oatmeal and nut butter or dry eggs on toast have become pretty monotonous. And it’s no secret that dairy, particularly cheese seems to be quite a GI irritant. But I found the most tasty, most expensive form of lactose-free, gluten-free, vegan cheese – Diaya Cheese. I will be honest… eating it cold is rather disappointing. But heating it up for a grilled cheese, or mixing in my with my scrambled eggs has brought some life back into my meals. It’s pretty tasty, and while definitely not the “real deal” it does the trick.
The best part about it, it’s primary ingredient is filtered water : ) Can’t go wrong with that! I’m partial to the cheddar cheese flavor and in all honesty it’s the only one I’ve tried. But the company doesn’t do just cheese, it does Cheezecakes (LOL at the name), Pizzas, and even Cheezy Mac : ) And their website even offers recipes.
While a little pricy, it’s totally worth it. I seriously suggest you checking it out and letting me know what you think! After eating it, I don’t feel quite as heavy or as bloated as I do after regular cheese. TMI – it’s whatever.
Anyways, here’s a photo dump of other random things I’ve been eating…
