Day 20 - Eliminate Eggs

I'm worried about today.  Seriously. 

I can give up eating eggs, because as you recall, I tried to eat some poached (my former favorite) a few days ago and gagged big time.  They just don't taste good to me anymore.  But eggs IN STUFF - particularly baked goods - now that, dearest reader, will be a challenge.

But we are up for a challenge, are we not?  What are we - MEN, or MICE?  (The right answer is 'men', by the way, even if you are a chick.)

Speak, Sarah.  We are listening.

"Eliminate eggs from your diet and your kitchen. If you enjoy baking, try making some recipes that use a substitute for eggs. If you like to buy baked goods, find some local places that carry vegan baked goods, and try one of their products."
Sarah Taylor. Vegan in 30 Days: Get Healthy. Save the World. (Kindle Locations 431-433). Kindle Edition.

So I have my egg replacer, I'm ready to go.  Sarah also gives some great ideas for substitutes in her book, but since you've all bought your OWN COPY OF THIS GREAT BOOK by now, you know that.  Given the fact that I almost never bake anything in the summer, because the oven heats up the entire Sweet Bachelorette Pad, I'm not hitting the baked good panic button yet.

And you may also recall, I had a few precious moments with a vegan baked good, but it was snatched from my grasp and devoured by my 12-year old. 

At the end of the day, here's what I'm worried about: pudding.  I love pudding.  I make pudding - a lot.  I eat pudding - a lot.  I cannot, will not, imagine a dairy-free, egg-free pudding.  (Yes, darling, my pudding is from scratch.  No instant pudding in the SBP.)  To speak of it is blasphemy, to ponder it is sacrilegious.  However will I make it to the end of July, let alone the end of my life, without pudding?  How?

And I had a serious craving for a corn dog today; extra mustard, please.  Hey, I can fantasize, right?

I also had a serious craving for a fireman, but that's a post for another time.

What were we talking about again?


  1. There are lots of recipes for vegan pudding that look fabulous. You'll make it. You're a superstar!
