3 days ago I spoke with my sister about food allergies. She has celiac disease which simply means her body does not process gluten. Therefore she is on a gluten free diet. I was tested for celiac since it does run in families but I do not have it. However, I still have some sinus issues and my sister thought I should try a dairy-free diet.
Dairy products are not as healthy as the dairy industry would like us all to believe. Dairy can cause skin issues, congestion, and digestive issues.
So...3 days ago I began my dairy-free diet. This includes reading labels for hidden dairy ingredients. So far, I have been pretty good. I had almond milk on my cereal this morning and it tasted ok. We had tacos last night and I avoided the sour cream and grated cheese...although I missed them! All in all, the tacos tasted ok and I tried not to think of it.
I was curious if others on Dairy-Free diets have any products they LOVE that are great substitutes for the dairy products we are used to.
Any suggestions or tips????
I will let you know how this progresses for me and if it really makes a difference in how I feel!
Until next time....
