And I’m not happy about it.
Though, I’m sure I’m preaching to the dairy-free choir here. I mean, is anyone ACTUALLY happy about going off of something that they’ve been eating all their life? I’ve been drinking milk, eating cheese, butter – basically anything dairy – baking with dairy, cooking with it.
What in the sassafras river am I suppose to use now?
Okay, I can stop being so overly dramatic right now and get to the chase. My chiropractor (also a cousin of mine) has suggested that my stomach is in need of a little bit of help. And that means to cut out dairy from my diet. For 30 days. A whole month.
That doesn’t seem TOO bad, does it? Well, from my perspective, it may be a little more difficult for us. We have 6 kids. So does this mean I have to make 3 separate shopping lists for myself, for my husband (who has a corn intolerance – so no corn of any kind), and my kids? 3 separate meal plans? That sounds very exhausting! And possibly expensive.
Tell me how I’m suppose to live without my cheesecake?
So, I’m curious as to how I’m going to make this work. And I want to hear from you, my readers, how you have managed your dairy-free diet. I need meal ideas, snacks…basically anything to lend a helping hand. I got this….right?
