November 24, 2015 12:18 pm

If getting a great workout while also checking out a truly stunning view of Tustin sounds like a perfect afternoon to you, you’ll love exploring the Peters Canyon Hike. This popular hiking area contains a few different trails ranging in difficulty from beginning hikers to very experienced, and although they can get a bit crowded during peak hours, each one offers a relaxing and scenic time spent in nature.

Peters Canyon Hike is dog-friendly and inviting to both you and your four-legged friend, and you’ll even find the occasional mountain biker or horseback rider along the trail. Local wildlife and undisturbed trees, plants and flowers surround you as you hike, and there are frequent rest areas along particularly difficult parts of each trail. There is ample parking surrounding each entrance, which conveniently leads right to the start of the trails. For outdoorsy Tustin residents, the Peters Canyon Hike is a must-try.

These Dairy-Free Substitutes Have All the Flavor of Cow’s Milk

November 11, 2015 3:02 pm

Many people choose to cut milk out of their diets, whether it’s because of a food allergy or a vegan diet. Luckily, dairy-free milk substitutes make it easy to continue eating and cooking the foods that you love. Here are a few of the best milk substitutes.

  1. Almond milk. Almond milk is a wonderful milk substitute because it has a thick, creamy consistency just like real milk. Its taste is nutty and slightly toasted, but it’s not enough to overwhelm your cooking or baking. Almond milk is also completely free of dairy and has only around 60 calories per cup.
  2. Soy milk. Soy milk is the original milk substitute, and likely the one that you’re most familiar with. It’s made with thickeners that give it the milk-like consistency that’s necessary for baking, and its taste is creamy and a bit sweet.
  3. Coconut milk. Newly popular coconut milk has a slightly thinner texture than cow’s milk, but its light flavor is very tasty. This isn’t the best option for baking because it could produce breads or cakes with a gummy texture, but it is delicious on cereals or to drink straight.
