Over the past 4 months I have really notices how I have felt and reacted to certain foods. A great friend of mine T. asked me to participate with her in a 10 day detox. It was 100% vegan and 60% raw. I made it to day 6 and then stopped mainly because the last 4 days were just juices.
One main thing this detox had was NO DAIRY (as it was vegan). I am not a vegan in my day to day. I enjoy meat, eggs, butter and cheese! Cheese is one of my vices but I know every time I eat cheese or consume a lot of milk products I am in agony.
I do not drink milk now so that is not hard to cut out. I hardly eat cheese as it is. But when I do I eat CHEESE! Plus I do enjoy greek yogurt. I have decided after the third stomach agony in the past three weeks that dairy has to go… Now I will say I did buy two dairy products in my last grocery shop – Laughing Cow Cheese and Liberte Greek Yogurt. I will continue to finish these off as they do not bother me. However – I will not buy any additional dairy products going forward.
Great resources I am using to guide me through this dairyfree-transition:
Do you find the milk bugs you? Are you going to switch?
