I like dairy. I really like ice cream. I LOVE cheese!!! Cheese is good on everything and makes everything tastes so much better. So when my sister sent me this email:
“I started doing a dairy free diet for the month of August … a Vegan friend of mine was telling me how bad dairy is for human adults … and said that if I kept everything else the same but gave up dairy for one month that I would lose 10 pounds!! Want to join me??? It could be fun …and you could blog about it!!!”
My response to her was Hell No, I need my cheese, ice cream and lattes!!! Her response:
“So it will be hard …. But come on ……you can do it for one month!!!! And you might end up feeling a lot better …. You never know!!! COME ON …. DO IT … DO IT… DO IT!!!”
Who am I to argue with my older and (sometimes) wiser sister. After all we both think we might be a little lactose intolerant so this is a good experiment to see if our stomachs feel better after a month without dairy. If you follow me ontwitteryou already know I’ve decided to go dairy free for August.
I’ve started looking at the ingredients of everything in my pantry and I really can’t believe how many food have dairy product in them. I will definitely need to hit up the grocery store to purchase some dairy free products.
