...It Does a Body Good


Cow's milk to be exact. How I miss you.
You see, I have been "off dairy" for almost two months now. Not because of me, but because my little guy isn't taking kindly to it. It makes him break out into a horrible rash. (So horrible, I hardly have any pictures of him.) And he scratches his skin until it bleeds. Oh, and he screamed every time I fed him. Poor guy! So when the doctor suggested I take dairy out of my diet, I thought, "No big deal. I can live without a glass of milk." But I had no idea how hard it would actually be! Because I've learned that EVERYTHING good has milk in it.

Cheese is out.

And that means so is Grilled Cheese.

As is Ice Cream.
And don't get me started on my love affair with pizza.

And I dare you. (Beg you!!) to find a good dessert that does not contain milk, butter or cream.

And even things that are sort of good have milk in it. Breadcrumbs? Crackers? Bread from the store? Yep. All have milk. And forget about anything processed/manufactured. It has milk or milk protein in it. Which means when you open the pantry or the fridge, there is nothing to eat. And you starve.

But it's all worth it in the end, because look how happy and cute he is now!!
