Yummies we heart: We heart vegan yum-yum

So we are gonna be super straight up... We are NOT vegans... We love cheese! We love milk in our coffee and in our tea, we die for whipped cream, we go gaga for cakes and cookies and don't even get us started on ice cream.

But since we also love animals, we got really excited about trying to lessen our intake of animal products.

Hey it is worth a try right? And guess what? In this day and age it is actually sort of easy.
Thank goodness for meat substitutes, soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, and even some pretty tasty faux cheese!

And thank the heavens above for Vegan Yum Yum, whos recipes we love, even when we are going full force with our dairy loving ways.

Written by the always cute Lolo, Vegan Yum Yum gives clear and easy ways to make delicious non expensive vegan meals that will make you forget you ever even wanted meat. Plus every step is shown in pictures... We love to look at this site for hours.

Here are a few of the recipes we have been drooling over.

Oh heavens this looks so perfect for a summer evening!

With a nice glass of white wine and some crusty bread.
Yum Yum.

We love you so.
when ever Miss Me goes out for sushi with the family, she orders this for her kids... and then eats it all herself while they insist on only eating white rice with soy sauce! Crazy kids!

But, I bet they would eat if they got to help make it!
How fun would that be?

Try and make some tonight!

It is so nice to meet you! Thank you for coming to my house.... I am sorry that it has to end this way Smashed Potatoes... But I am going to have to eat you.

Nothing personal, it is just the olive oil and the rosemary are making you irresistible.

What are those pants you have on right now? Are those? Yes they are... Those are fancy pants!
Good for you! A fancy pants is exactly what you are gonna be when you serve this.

All that goodness and not a lick of cheese.

Speaking of not a lick of cheese. Check out this quick

Oh, here is something to encourage all of us to keep the cheese to a minimum..

Cheese will make you fat!
Every time I stop eating cheese for a few weeks the pounds drop.

These Vegan Cinnamon Roles will, on the other hand... Only make you pleasantly plump!

Because yes, that is what we are gonna call it after we down a batch of these babies right out of the oven!

This was great. After seeing all the documentaries and reading all the books about the food industry the past couple of years of I have lessened my intake of meat. Two weeks ago I read Skinny Bitch and have finally tried not eating meat at all. Haven't missed it so far. Ice cream and cheese... probably won't ever give that up :) The video on you last post was difficult to watch but I'm glad you shared it. Vegan food can be the best tasting food!! I've never been disappointed with a Vegan restaurant and I'll have to try the phone app!
