I'm thinking of going dairy free for a few weeks to see if my son has an intolerance to it in my breast milk. But... I have never gone more than a few days without cheese. Not sure how I'll manage.

No ice cream, no cheese, no milk or yogurt.

Any of you ever drastically changed your diet, any suggestions? I'm hoping vegan "cheese" will be alright, but at the same time, I don't expect it will be.

I'm not looking forward to this. Especially if the outcome is that he does have an intolerance to it, because then I'd have to keep giving it up. Otoh, it'd be good because I would have solved the issue.

I made cinnamon toast tonight and opened a new cinnamon, but it smelled and tasted weird like it was mixed with allspice or something.

my mother went dairy free a few years ago
she never liked cheese in the first place though
other than that, whenever i'm home and eating food made with dairy free in mind, goats butter and soy milk are totally fine.

also two people in my book group are lactose intolerant and so when i host i get goats and ewes cheeses for the evening and they're always great.

I'd have to give up all dairy, not just cow's milk.

I wonder which fake milk is best for coffee/tea.

wait what
goats stuff isn't dairy, it's a different thing?

You can get dairy free milk yogurts and ice cream.
Ben and jerries gave started doing fairy free here now and it's quite nice.

Arlo lacto free milk I have found best in hot drinks, no funky taste.

It depends on the individual, lots of people who are lactose intolerant have an issue with some part of cow's milk in particular, but apparently lots of babies have issues with whey and casein proteins which are found in all of them.

Which is weird because obviously he's drinking my milk so why is that so different?

I use the red one though but this is the nicest "milk" I have found so far. Not too expensive and most supermarkets sell at least the green, you may be lucky enough to get the red and blue also

Kristen Bell recently nailed it by saying that being a breastfeeding mom is like becoming a food truck.

I was excited because I'd heard that with the exception of alcohol, once you give birth you can have all the stuff you couldn't while pregnant, but it turns out that is a lie.

I've definitely seen that in our Tesco, will have a look to see what kind of choices they carry

I have looked into the weird cinnamon and apparently there are two types, real cinnamon and fake cinnamon. I must have bought the fake kind.

I have some form of intolerance or sensitivity to dairy. I've not taken the time to get tested yet, but if I'm out and getting dinner I just stay away from dairy, at home and ill demolish a tub of ice cream because its still nice lol. And deal with the consequences.

Of you head to the bigger stores they should have a good selection of fresh dairy free and they usually carry a good selection on the free from.

i have this vague notion that basically everyone is intolerant to dairy because it's a really weird unnatural thing to drink other animal's milk but we just make ourselves do it and just get used to it and i have no idea if this is pure urban legend trash or actually the way the human body works and i can't be bothered to do the research to check

I think we have evolved to be Tollerant of milk.

Us with sensitivity or intolerance are probably just a little bit behind in the evolution lol

It would make sense, it is pretty crazy when you think about it.
I often wonder about our ancestors and food discoveries. Like, how did they discover cheese or butter?

I loooove cheese and milk

But I went dairy free

I switched to soy milk and I don't mind it, and I have cheese on the very rare and special occasion, and I don't actually miss it that much.

But there is lacto free cheese and stuff.

Anyway it imported my skin a hell of.a lot and I'm so glad I did it. And it really didn't affect my life in a big way at all.

i don't want to go dairy free because i'm scared my body will forget how to process it and i'll never be able to go back
14 days ago - Saturday 2/10/18 - 4:05:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wonder if I can do the lacto free stuff because it's the protein he's maybe reacting to?

in my experience, vegan cheese is NOT ALL RIGHT. It's horrible. Better to go cheese-free completely than eat that crap.

Dairy-free yogurt, on the other hand, is FANTASTIC. I'm a big fan. Pretty much everything is good other than the fake cheese stuff.

Good to know. But also the cheese is the hardest thing to give up! h
14 days ago - Saturday 2/10/18 - 5:53:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
True. I'd be vegan if it weren't for cheese. And honey. Oh, and fish. And eggs.

you can be pretty guilt-free about eggs imo. like i know this lady and she's such a hippy and animal lover and keeps chickens and they're basically pets and i get eggs from her


now there's nothing drating wrong with that from even the most enlightened animal lover's pov right?

Yeah, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
If things were all ethical and sustainable, I have no moral issues with all the things I mentioned, which is why I still eat them and don't fit the vegan definition.

Anyway, we were only talking about dairy free. Somehow I went off track and involved veganism but
i meant only to talk about how bad fake cheese is. it's nasty stuff.

Oh, that's hard.

so, I haven't had meat for 2 decades.
My body dislikes wheat things.
and I think dairy messes up my skin and bloats me.

so, I tried vegan, wheat-free and I just couldn't stand it. Felt empty and craving all the time.
went back to dairy.
(except milk. I drink cashew or coconut milks. From what I understand, your selection is not good in the UK. You could make your own nut milks at home, if so inclined. Internet has recipes)

The one thing that is kinda cheesy that is good is nutritional yeast flakes. You may have to find these online or in a health food store.
They're like dry cheese sprinkles that you can put on other foods. Sure, it's not a slice of cheese but it's good on eggs or vegetables or those sorts of things that are nice with cheese.

vegan cheeses were bad years ago. Haven't retried them lately.

vegan cheese are getting better every day
