It’s been awhile, I know. I got lazy. Sorry.
That pesky dairy allergy that made itself know a few years ago has reared its ugly head again. The itchy face and breakouts are back, and they brought a friend with them this time – migraines! Yay! Not. And the list of dairy based foods I can tolerate continues to shrink. In addition to milk and yogurt, cheese (that hasn’t been warmed/cooked/baked in some way – even then it’s sketchy) is also off the list. Boo… So, now I’m cutting out dairy completely and on the hunt for replacements. Because I love cheese. And milk. And yogurt. A LOT. I miss them. A LOT.
I decided to fire up the ol’ blog again… mostly for my own peace of mind and to chronicle my findings… because, frankly, this whole no dairy/finding replacements that don’t require “acquiring a taste for it” is intimidating, and I have no idea where to start. Luckily for me, food allergies/aversions have become quite prevalent in today’s society, so I have plenty of resources at my disposal. For that, I’m incredibly thankful.
So join me on my forays into allergen free eating. Or don’t. Whatever. I won’t be offended. Here’s hoping I learn something worthwhile!
