More 21 Day Vegan Kickstart Deliciousness and Sheese

I don't always follow the rules.  For example, if a recipe calls for blueberries but I only have blackberries, I'll make it with what I have.  That's what happened with these pancakes.  I also didn't have any buckwheat flour, so I used rye for another breakfast recommended by the 21 day vegan kickstart program.  Pancakes rock!  I like how wholesome these pancakes are, and if you want to give them a try, you can get the original recipe here.

And in case you need to see another breakfast scramble:

I crumbled some medium cheddar style Sheese over the scramble.  I haven't found a fake cheese yet that I'm crazy about, but when I tried this flavour of Sheese, I could not believe how closely it tastes to the real thing.  I even asked my non-vegan dad to taste it and he liked it.  Sheese has been around for a few years, it's usually over $8.00 for an 8oz package at my local supermarket so it's not something I usually buy.  But I'm having fun making things with it, like the grilled Sheese sandwich below.

It's been ages since I even thought about Sheese- Thanks for the reminder! That stuff was really good... And I can only imagine how tasty it would be over a scramble! I'll have to try that next time.

Thanks for your sweet comment by the way- And my mom says thanks too! :)

Why don't vegans eat cheese? It has calcium and a cow wasn't killed to get it.

Hi Lorraine, thanks for your question. I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I'm a firm believer that cow milk should only by consumed by baby cows.

Many vegetarians eat dairy products, but as a vegan, I don't consume anything that came from an animal. In a nutshell, dairy cows are pumped full of horomones and antibiotics to ensure they keep lactating long after their calf was whisked away to become veal on someone's dinner plate.

It's beyond cruel and I can't justify supporting an industry that grows rich on the misfortune of helpless animals, whether they are dead or alive. Cows deserve a happy natural life like the rest of the beings on our beautiful planet.

There are a lot of books on this subject, if you're interested in learning more.
