New facebook message I got in my in box. I bet you can guess who it’s from:
“Aww, girl. Why you gotta spread our business around to everyone? I know you were mad at me, but I thought we were past that. Listen, I know you get all upset when you think I hurt your stomach, but it’s not me–and you know I don’t mean it, girl. Let’s get back together, and stop telling other people about me and showing them ways to avoid me. You’re making me out like the bad guy, when I am just innocently tryin’ to love you.”
Oh dairy. You’re so ghetto.
As it turns out, diary was two timing me. He wasn’t just abusing me, but many of my friends came out of the woodwork, sharing that they too, were victims of dairy’s wiles.
It’s like an underground club, and I have never been more happy that I started this blog because people have been giving me GREAT ideas on diary free alternative. (Yeah you huuurd me dairy!)
So at the store yesterday, I didn’t want to get too crazy too quick. I decided I’d try one new thing each week I went shopping.
And flippin’ good thing I DID! Andrew and I had just about the best frozen confection I can remember having. Ohh yeah! This treat suggested by the lovely Lisa K.
My plan was to take some sort of editorial pictures of us eating them, but we may or may not have eaten them too quickly to bother with a camera….
So here’s a stock photo:
And it’s true. The little treats really are SO delicious. Organic and made with coconut milk. Coconut milk is like dairy’s good looking, kind and responsible arch cousin who knows how to treat a lady, and a Tiny. Yes, I will be seeing you again, my dear. Call me up anytime.
So you know what friends? I say we band together, raise our creamy mini desserts together in hand and delcare that we are much too good for dairy.
Yeah, I said it.
I gave up dairy for my baby’s milk-soy protein intolerance since I was breastfeeding. His pediatric GI had me test and see if I could add it back to my diet, and now I’m completely back to dairy – but I gotta say, there was a side effect to my dairy-free lifestyle I didn’t imagine… my teeth got more yellow. I did everything I could, peroxide, baking soda, meticulous brushing… etc. Gross. Now I’ve started drinking milk and my teeth are already whitening back up. Who knew?
I’m lactose intolerant, but I love my milk, not straight up milk, but chocolate, ice cream, yogurt, frozen yogurt, CHEESE!! My husband keeps telling me that I”m going to get ulcers if i keep eating dairy but I just can’t let go. I”ll just take lactase. 🙂
btw your blog is super cute. and your baby! his hair. I wish my kids had crazy cute hair.
No Dawn, you can do it! I promise! I’m going to keep blogging dairy free alternatives. I was the same way, I loved everything dairy, but I promise, it’s way better without!
LOL!! This post was too funny!!! I am not 100% sure that I am lactose-intolerant, but that ghetto dairy is pretty suspect…I definitely notice some sort of correlation between eating yogurt or drinking milk and then hurting in the belly region…hmmm…and I too have thought about cutting out dairy, but um…no cheese!! no ice cream!!! no greek yogurt!!! Don’t know if I’m ready to take the plunge yet, lol!
