My new guilty pleasure

My new guilty pleasure
I discovered a sweet, somewhat guilt-free, treat that I wanted to share with you. So Delicious uses organic ingredients, and are always 100 percent plant-based and Non-GMO Project Verified with no artificial sweeteners, trans-fats, or hydrogenated oils.

Dairy-free eating: does it work?
Since October when the holistic doctor gave me a test and revealed I was allergic to dairy, I’ve been really strict about eliminating it from diet.  It isn’t difficult anymore; it quickly has become part of my life.

Is dairy-free macaroni and cheese possible?
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve really been missing cheese lately.
