Dairy Free Diary

Hi.

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!
