Hot spiced almond milk

Breakfast: Hot spiced almond milk with a vegan muffin

Lunch: Seven grain salad and apricot cous cous salad (my new obsession)

Dinner: Leek and lemon linguine

It's very difficult, when you're sick, not to infect everyone around you. It's also near impossible not to infect everyone who lives with you. Though I'm mostly (touch wood) over my 2-day illness, and the kittens appear to have escaped unscathed, the poor Putin is now as weak as the aforementioned kittens, coughing and sneezing himself to sleep while I sit guiltily by. Sorry, Putin.

I am trying to make amends, though. I'm supplying him with oodles of spicymakegood and good, healthy foods, but Putin is a man who loves comforting treats, so something else was in order. This went down very well.

You'll need:
(Feeds 2)
2 cups almond milk
1 tbsp honey (local is best)
2 cinnamon sticks
a pinch of cayenne pepper

Pour the almond milk into a pan and simmer it on a medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes
Stir in the honey and cayenne pepper, and drop the cinnamon sticks into the pan
When the milk has reached the desired heat, divide between 2 glasses and place one cinnamon stick in each glass

You might be wondering about the Oreo sitting there. Yes, I did serve him an Oreo...and yes, they are vegan*! Due to Oreos being horribly processed, and due to it being cheaper to make foods out of crap that tastes things instead of those actual things, they don't actually contain any dairy. However, they are made from a bunch of not good things, including high fructose corn syrup which is the closest thing to a government-sponsored bio weapon to be used against the people that America has ever had. But he really wanted one.

*If you're living outside of North America, be sure to read the label properly. In some countries, Oreos contain whey products.
