(vegan) cream cheese, miami-made orange blossom honey, the tiniest sprinkling of salt.
This was just what I needed on Monday morning. A fresh loaf of bread, a few delicious drops of honey, and the most amazing cashew milkshake from my favorite Miami farm. It eased my sore throat and made my emotional day on Sunday, feel like a distant, not-so-bad memory.
Yes, honey, its honey. No, I guess by strict vegan standards, this isn't vegan. I've always been okay with honey in things (breads mostly), but I never actually use or buy honey... not because it's not vegan, but because it's a bit too sweet for my liking. I'm not sure what inspired this honey kick that I've discovered myself on, but I'm digging it. I went down to my favorite miami market on saturday and tasted a handful of local varieties and decided this orange blossom honey was just perfect. About veganism, I've never been super strict about it, and I've never been pushy about it. I do what I can when I can. It's hard to exactly call myself a strict vegan given the fact that I still own a bit of leather... and I have no idea what was in the deodorant I use (was using). Either way, vegan or not, I think it's always good to truly look at the food in front of you and take appreciation in the work that went into getting there. Honey is a little bit magical.
Happy Tuesday everyone. Alex and I are taking turns watching M today. Since the both of them are sharing a little bug and I'm doing my best to fight fight fight it away. <3
ps. my internet is down. I'll be back to reply to emails and comments and other things as soon as I can ;)
