  1. There are a couple of those things I use already but I would like to replace sugar with the Agave Nectar and try some of the Himalayan pink salt.

  2. Great list. I do some of these, but sorry if this is a stupid question but what is Silken Tofu? How is it different from regular Tofu?
    Much love,

    1. Thank you! And it's actually a very good question. :)
      Silken tofu has a much softer, delicate texture than regular tofu. That's why it's used a lot for replacing eggs in baking.

  4. I always wanted to try almond mlik, but it's just too expensive for as much milk as I consume.

  12. Hace mucho que tomamos el pan y el arroz integral, a veces la pasta también. Y el azucar ya no entra en casa, solo miel y Agave. Por supuesto, siempre aceite de oliva; para cocinar, aliñar, desayunar... Sin embargo, hay otras cosas que no hemos probado como el tofu o las leches vegetales... En fin, poco a poco... ¡Gracias por tus consejos, Adi!

    Besos mil de las dos

  18. I once heard that agave nectar is actually not that much 'healthier' than actual sugar, do you have more info on that?

    1. Certainly, Kati. :)
      The main reason why people say that is because the process involves the nectar to be exposed to heat. Many companies do this with other products like oils to get rid of any bacteria, however, the heat kills off many of the natural benefits. In agave nectar, it kills some off and turns its natural sugar into fructose. If someone wants to buy agave nectar, I highly recommend buying organic or cold-pressed. Cold-pressed does not require heat, therefore leaving all the nutrients and sugar as is while still destroying any bad bacteria. And unlike white/ granulated sugar, agave nectar is vegan & vegetarian friendly since it contains no animal byproducts. It may be a little more expensive, but it's naturally sweeter than honey & granulated sugar so one requires less per use.
      I hope this was helpful!
