The Joy of Soy

About a month ago, I was at a project meeting and pizza was ordered in. In addition to the usual complement of cheese and sausage, and just plain cheese, a soy cheese veggie pizza was present. I instantly thought it would be awful, but didn’t even try it.

So last night while grocery shopping, something urged me to at least try soy milk. Maybe it was the fact that my boss is a vegetarian, maybe it’s because Ryan bribed me, who knows. I figured I’d go with chocolate milk, since it’s one of my favorite beverages.

You know what? It’s pretty good. In fact, it’s very good… I had an actual taste for the stuff a few times during the workday yesterday.

While I’m not about to go veg (chicken is far too tough for me to give up), I wouldn’t mind trying soy milk as a substitute for cow’s milk. The downside is the price: a quart of the stuff cost me $1.99, and it’s $2.09 through Webvan. Compare that to a gallon of milk at the (high) price of $3.29. Maybe that money goes towards the website, I dunno.

In any event, I encourage you to at least give it a try. It’s really not that bad. -pm
