in an effort to clean up my diet (armed with skinny bitch and a conveniently close proximity to the farmers' market) i've gone on a pseudo-vegan diet. pseudo because i still wanted to have protein shakes, include honey in my recipes, and add a splash of cream to my (occasional) coffee. and vegan because i wanted to eat primarily veggies, fruits, legumes, and whole grains--sans gluten, of course--to detoxify my system.
i've been stuffing my face with peaches, cucumbers and hummus, and i've become outrageously addicted to truelemon raspberry lemonade. it's a "crystallized citrus" flavor packet for water, but without the unhealthy dose of aspartame, as is the case with most water flavors. the ingredient list is so short that i feel it's necessary to share this wealth of knowledge, right here and now: crystallized lemon [citric acid, lemon oil, lemon juice, ascorbic acid (vitamin c)], organic evaporated cane juice, natural raspberry flavor, rebiana (stevia), guar gum, beet juice (for color). okay, so it does contain processed soy, and i'm 99% sure it contains processed corn, but overall i'm very impressed by the lack of--ahem--crap in this product.

have you tried the truelemon products? what's your take on pseudo-veganism?
