When guests come in to town I often take them to at least one of my five favorite local ice cream shops. Two of them are local dairy farms. I honestly thought, on the first weekend we started eating plant based, ‘How am I going to give up ICE CREAM!’ and for that matter milkshakes, cheese, pizza, spanikopita, lasagna, whipped cream… oh the list goes on and I think I will miss those things. Maybe I will indulge in them once a year. But for now we are going without the dairy versions.
