Thankful Thursday 2/19/2015

This might sound silly, but Starbucks now has coconut milk. I am mostly lactose intolerant (I can tolerate a little bit of dairy), but I can't have soy anymore because the hormones in soy (estrogens) are toxic to my thyroid. With Starbucks, it was either soy or milk. They don't carry almond because they explained to me with allergies, it would have been bad. So, I would get some milk in my drinks (I could tolerate those, but I just didn't have anything else with dairy that day). This morning when I went for breakfast and to apply for some jobs, I saw they had coconut milk. I asked for that and I feel thankful that they are carrying that now. Thank you, Starbucks!



Other than that, I'm thankful for the peacefulness of this week. It's been a snowy and cold week, but the snow has been beautiful and it's relaxing to me. There's just something calming about cold weather, too. I'm thankful for the seasons: I love experiencing seasons.

  1. I'm thankful I can drink milk!
    The school closings are building...I don't think we're getting one, though.

    1. You know, lactaid isn't too bad. I also like rice milk... rice milk is interesting. :)

      What's it supposed to get down to tonight where you are? We're at 10 degrees with a windchill of -6. I think tomorrow morning is supposed to be -15; mom is taking me to work since it's too cold to walk in that.

  2. I don't think I've had coconut milk before. How does it taste compared to regular milk?

    1. It's more watery and sweeter if sweetened. I like it, especially in my Starbucks drinks since I can't have soy and they can't sell almond milk with peoples' nut allergies.
