So, I'm a saint, I tell you.

I'm a huge fan of vegan baking. The cookbooks I own are spilling off my bookshelf. I don't know why, but I get seriously excited at the idea of vegan treats. They tend to be healthier than dairy-laden desserts, but I'm most excited at the prospect of something being just as delicious as its non-vegan counerpart without using any milk or eggs! Okay, I'll stop raving. I'm a nerd that way.

Why am I a saint?

Because this amazing event is happening in my city today. Totally fabulous vegan bake-off. Apparently, the entries were amazing last year. I thought about entering this year, but the babe came along. Next year for sure!

It's with heavy heart that I've decided not to go. As much as I want to participate in sampling, my weight loss goals just aren't conducive to that right now. (Insert tear trickling down my face here for dramatic effect).

I also did my run this morning, so it'd be awfully silly of me to cancel out the calories I burned off. Right? Please tell me I'm right.

Sigh. If I don't see a reward on the scale this coming week, I'll be pretty sad!

It certainly is saintly! But when you feel like splurging on a little treat, Gwyneth Paltrow just posted a bunch of vegan baked good recipes on her site, Not vegan myself, I haven't tried them, but they sound good!
