Plant Based

A great many people are lactose intolerant without it ever having been diagnosed. I think I must be one of them because ever since I gave up consuming dairy I no longer have to hit the milk of magnesia at bedtime. I thought I'd miss cheese but I don't.

Ailz prefers "plant-based whole-food" to "vegan"; for one thing it sounds less alien and for another you can be a vegan and eat nothing but expensive junk food and we're absolutely not doing that but going down the home cooked route. Ailz has invested in several recipe books. Today we're having pasta with a seafood sauce- the seafood being seaweed. It tasted a little thin to begin with. Wendy, who is eating with us suggested more spice- and the answer turned out to be a dollop of miso.
