I find it hardest not to eat things that have meat products, but don't resemble meat in any way - meat doesn't really look like food to me anymore, or trigger hunger pains. But skittles and jello and marshmallows look so harmless and delicious.
Well, Whole Foods - at least the one by my work - has just started carrying vegan marshmallows. There's been a gourmet marshmallow craze lately and I'd been hoping that someone would cook something up for the niche market of vegetarians, and it's finally happened.
I can't compare them to proper marshmallows - it's been too long since I've had one - but they have that powdery outside that I remember, they are soft and sticky but not gooey and don't dissolve quickly in hot chocolate. Exactly what I'd been missing.
I've been having hot chocolate with a marshmallow in it almost every day for the past couple of weeks. It's just been such a treat.
