Earlier this year I did a 10-day Silk for Milk challenge, where I substituted Silk wherever I would use milk throughout the days. By the end of the challenge, I had become very fond of Silk Pure Almond Vanilla flavor. I admit it took me a few days to get past the differences in color and texture, but now it’s my ‘calcium drink’ of choice.
Amazingly enough – I’m not alone in my fondness for the vanilla flavoring. The fact is, most people prefer the taste of Silk Vanilla in their cereal over typical dairy milk.*
The 10 days went a lot quicker than I thought they would. It was a great challenge for me personally on two levels, one to get more milk into my diet! The other was with the vlogs. I had not done many before, and I think I’m a bit more comfortable in front of the camera now. I think that one can do a lot more with vlogs, and hopefully I’ll think to use them more on my blog.
I went out for lunch today with a friend of mine – and (gasp!) skipped breakfast <– bad I know…
So I didn’t get much milk in today – BUT when I was out, I went an picked up a Silk Milk ‘treat’ and had it for my evening snack.
Wow – Day 8 already – only 2 more to go until I complete the challenge. With so many varieties of Silk Milk to choose from, my fridge is getting full ! Today I was completely boring at breakfast, and breakfast got carried over into dinner. I used the Silk Soy Light for both.
The first commenter on the Day 5 Giveaway post ‘jenn gianetto’ had some really great ideas for substituting Silk for Milk. She gets three extra entries into the giveaway since I used all her ideas for Day 7 . Check out where I substitued Silk for Milk
Today I tried the Silk PureCoconut with my breakfast. Watch the video to learn a bit more about why coconut milk is so special!
It was a much better day on the milk using front here! Breakfast, lunch and supper all had Silk Milk substitued for dairy milk somewhere. After using up all the Silk PureAlmond, we tried both the Silk Light and Silk PureCoconut. Watch the video to see how we used all three in our day.
This morning rather than just drinking Silk Milk for breakfast I added it to my breakfast in a different way.
I did better today! I substituted my Silk Milk twice for dairy milk. The second item I used it in was so tasty. You’ll have to watch the video to see what it was!
Day 2 on the 10-Day Silk-for-Milk Challenge, and I hang my head in shame because I did not drink hardly any milk of any kind today. Sigh.
It is said that you have to do something routinely for 3 weeks before it becomes a habit. So I’m sticking it out, and maybe, just maybe after 10 days I’ll be closer to being in a habit of drinking Silk milk everyday.
