Lies are delicious

In an effort to live healthy and stave off Anxiety the natural way I have taken to trying to cut the amount of dairy I take in.  I can't get rid of it all though.  For example; I like cream in my coffee.  And yes, I know coffee is bad too but really I'm keeping the coffee and cream for the comfort and safety of those around me.

Anyhow, I have taken to drinking Almond milk.  If you are allergic to almonds don't do this.  If you are not I highly suggest you give it a try.  It comes in plain, chocolate and vanilla and makes a lovely substitute for dairy in smoothies and protein shakes.

In an effort to get Brent on board with taking on a new healthy lifestyle I've been encouraging him to try the almond milk. (And drink less beer and stop eating ice cream with his face straight out of the container...)

Here is why I think I'll never change him:

Me: I think I like the chocolate almond milk the best

Brent: I don't. I hate it

Me: Did you actually try it?

Brent: No. Because you can't milk an almond. It's not possible.

Me: Clearly it is. Maybe they squeeze them.

Brent: Your milk is born from lies.

Me: *Sigh*

Me: *whispers* Lies are delicious

He knows me better than this.  It's only going to encourage me to work harder to find something healthy that he loves!
