Vanilla Nutmeg Egg Soda

vanilla nutmeg egg soda

So I am having this problem with Coke. The husband of a friend of mine told me once that telling himself how bad smoking was for him never helped him stop, he could only quit smoking when he admitted to himself what good smoking did for him. Which sounds so dangerous, but desperate times call for desperate measures and I think it's desperate when I'm fretting in bed and then I think go to bed, tomorrow is work and you can have a Coke at work and fall sleep like an angel.

I'm busy and overwhelmed. It's just slightly beyond me to get together three good meals a week. I'm not even hungry for food. I just need glucose. Especially when it's stressed, your brain needs glucose. When you can't be bothered to cook and you need sugar for your brain, a Coke is like cracking open a can of peace of mind.

Okay, I can work with that. Something cold and sweet and easy to drink to calm my brain. What if I get an egg in and at least get some protein. Also it can be my answer to the egg cream. Which has no egg and no cream, but chocolate yes. Oh my god why is it called egg cream.

an egg
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
almond milk
seltzer water

Beat the egg very well in a small bowl with the sugar, vanilla, and nutmeg. Fill a third of a pint glass with almond milk, stir in the beaten egg, and top off the glass with seltzer water.
