I was talking with my good friend, Vicky earlier this week and she said I should try to go dairy free for a month or so. I decided to try it because I have gone dairy free for a week or so but not a whole month. Plus she is a doctor so I decided to give it a shot.
I have been dairy free for 2 days and I’m bored. I miss cheese. I miss butter. I miss bread.
I have salads, chicken and rice. The end.
I have made a pretty good salad
1 fuji apple
3 strawberries (feel free to add more. I’m slightly allergic so more than 3 or 4 strawberries is out of the question for me.)
1 handful of banana chips
5 or 6 black berries
1 handful of dried cranberries
sliced chicken or ham
lettuce/spinach of your choosing
I’m beginning to wonder how many salads I can eat. I have noticed in my ventures to remove food from my diet that pasta and creamy sauces are deadly to my system. So there might be something to the no dairy, no gluten thing. So I’m giving this an honest try.
I have Kaiser trying to find a GI for me to see which must be difficult because I haven’t heard from them since Monday and since they didn’t leave me with a phone number I’m pretty much sitting around waiting for them to get back to me.
So I’m no dairy and no gluten for as long as I can hold out. If you have recipe ideas I would be happy to hear them.
