half-and-half. A rich dairy milk perfect for coffee, some teas, and hot cereals should be a fine substitute for my usual soy. Is soy getting boring? Kind of. Though healthy, and delicious to me, slightly sweet and earthy, options are nice. And sometimes easier. And more polite. It's the stuff Americans are made of. Literally. I think opening my mostly vegan self (I do like me some fro yo or a chili relleno or a swiss omelet--these are so tasty!--now and again) to new food adventures might be wise at this point in time. A vegan lifestyle is super for a slim down or cleansing up for a marathon, but as I embark on new adventures to far-away Navy lands one day--the south one year, Asia or Germany over the next--I think I might like to free up my mind to try things like a balanced diet of squab and squid and the like.
