Thank you all so much for your congratulations on my acceptance to Ohio University! 🙂
I really appreciated all of your tips and suggestions too. I think I am just going to have to sit down, make a couple of pro/con lists and really listen to my heart. I’ve done it before, and I have realized that nutrition is my passion and I really want to become a registered dietician so I can help others. It just feels right. I suppose it does make sense to go to OU major-wise, however a couple of you mentioned creating my own major at Wooster.
Well Wooster does say that you can create your own major, but I have read that sometimes they go back on their word and you are un-able to create the major they promised you. Im not sure if I really want to take that risk. Ill keep you guys updated on my ponderings!
You all know how much I love my soy yogurts – my favorite brand being Silk Soy Yogurts (my reviews here). Well after seeing Food Inc. I became aware that Stonyfield sold a soy yogurt. I was so excited! After reading the label and doing some googling I found some unsure information about whether or not it was vegan. Well what did I do? Three health food stores and an email to the company later with this response got me my answer…
To answer your question regarding if the new O’Soy product is vegan, it may not be completely vegan due to the fact that is made in a dairy plant on
dairy lines. O’Soy is the first product produced on the line and only after
a thorough cleaning of the lines the night before. Though we don’t add
dairy there is always a possibility of trace amounts in the product, due to
the fact that it is made on dairy lines, air borne particles and human
error. We test the product for dairy and strive for less than 5 parts per
million (0.000005). The industry standard is for less than 10 parts per
So I suppose its up to you on whether or not these yogurts are vegan or not. A five parts per million, for me personally im willing to say its vegan. But I really do appreciate Stonyfield’s honesty.
EDIT – I wanted to clarify that there is no milk in Stonyfields soy yogurts. Their cultures are indeed milk based, which means that they are started using milk, but no milk is actually in the yogurt, except for the less than five parts per million.
They come in all kinds of delicious flavors such as chocolate, strawberry, peach, vanilla, raspberry and blueberry. I tried the strawberry and peach flavors because they come in little handy containers to pack in my lunches for school. The verdict?
Strawberry – Tasty! It’s not too sweet, and perfectly strawbrry-ey. I liked eating this one plain, without mix-ins.
Peach – A little bit tart, the way that a peach yogurt should taste. This one though tastes better with some granola mixed in though!
What do you think about Stonyfield yogurts, have you ever tried them? If your vegan would you be okay with eating these?
Dont these look yummy?
Remember how my mom bought me Alicia Silverstones new book The Kind Diet? Well I have been looking forward to trying out some of her recipes and these were first – her home made peanut butter cups. Delish! Have you ever made these?
How are you doing on the ab challenge if you signed up? Here are the both weeks one and two it’s not too late to jump in! I took today off from the gym, and am looking forward to going back tomorrow. Instead of having my day of active rest I didn’t really do much of anything (unless active juice drinking counts ;))
I’m one tired girl tonight I just got home from work and im looking forward to a good nights sleep and a healthy happy bowl of breakfast yum! What is it you ask?
Question of the day – What is your favorite tasty vegan (or non-vegan) treat? 🙂
