“The First Non-Dairy Beverage to Originate from Veggies”

 

Veggemo is a new non-dairy milk product that is made from vegetables. Non-dairy milks like soy, almond, and coconut are dominating the shelves these days so the producers of Veggemo wanted to do something different. They are the first in the non-dairy category to make alternative milk strictly out of vegetables. If you are allergic to dairy, soy, gluten and mainly nuts then this is the product for you!

Veggemo is made from a proprietary blend of tapioca starch, potato starch, pea protein, and enzymes. It also contains fortified vitamins like vitamin D, calcium, and B12. The tapioca and potato are what give the milk the smooth and creamy taste while the pea protein is what provides the nutrition and flavor. The flavors include unsweetened, vanilla, and original. Veggemo is dairy free, gluten free, nut free, soy free, cholesterol free, NON-GMO, vegan, and kosher. It is made with some organic ingredients but it is currently not 100 percent organic. Veggemo tastes great in cereal, on its own, in smoothies, and in many of your favorite recipes.

  • Unsweetened– it is very smooth, not sweet and has a hint of a nut taste.
  • Vanilla– The vanilla is smooth with a subtle taste of vanilla and it is the perfect amount of sweet.
  • Original– the original is very smooth with the perfect amount of sweet.

Overall, my favorite is the vanilla. They all have a smooth and creamy taste with a slight nut flavor, but of course it does not contain any nuts. The vanilla and original are not overbearingly sweet which is wonderful. Also, they don’t leave you with an aftertaste like most nut milks do. Even though Veggemo is marketed as a veggie based milk, it does not taste like veggies at all.

I found Veggemo at the Natural Products Expo West and it caught my eye because of how original it is, with a taste to match. Currently, Veggemo is in stores all over Canada but will be available in stores in the United States very soon. So make sure you keep a lookout for Veggemo in a store near you and try this unique new non-dairy beverage made from veggies.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid To Date Someone With Dietary Restrictions

Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid To Date Someone With Dietary Restrictions

 

Have you ever felt an instant attraction to someone and then you found out that they had dietary restrictions? Maybe your first thought was this person is high maintenance, prestigious, stuck up, and you ran for the door before you even asked them for their number. But why is having dietary restrictions a sign of high maintenance, prestige, and entitlement? When someone eats a certain type of way, others get intimidated and view this person as high maintenance or abnormal. They think they won’t be compatible because of their differences in food habits. Or, they think going out to eat will be a constant struggle. It is unfortunate because you could be missing out on a wonderful person just because they eat a certain type of way. That is silly. Food should not be a deal breaker.

Unfortunately, living an organic lifestyle has been linked to a person who is all those adjectives that I mentioned. That is strictly based on the fact that organic is linked to the expensive prestigious diet, which is so untrue. But let me tell you that just because someone eats organic that doesn’t mean that the person has a sense of entitlement, at all.

If you are afraid that the person who has different eating habits will push their views on you and try to change you, don’t be. That rarely happens contrary to popular belief. Remember, you don’t have to change for anyone and no one has to change for you.

It is an awesome experience to date someone who eats totally different from you. It is a great way to learn about new foods and how to be more compassionate for someone who is either forced to have dietary restrictions or chose a new lifestyle. You’ll get to try new restaurants, new products, and new food items that you never knew about.

Luckily, I have not personally experienced rejection because of my organic lifestyle. I have come across some awesome people who have supported me which I greatly appreciate. And, I never try to change someone either. But, to those of you that have been turned down for your dietary restrictions, I just want to tell you that you will find someone great who understands and supports you.

So, please don’t write off a person just because they follow an organic, vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, paleo or kosher lifestyle. Every person has something beautiful to offer you and his or her eating habits should not deter you from getting to know that person.
