Giving Up Dairy

As sad as the prospect makes me, I'm going to give up dairy products for a month to see if it will help with my sinus problems. I'm not really a milk drinker, but the prospect of life without cheese is not one I look forward to. My motto is that bleu cheese should go on almost everything. I think I would rather give up meat than cheese. I am also devoted to both Haaden-dazs and to my ice cream maker.

Other than hopefully feeling better, my only consolation is the tiny environmental impact I'll be making my buying less animal-based food. If there are any other milk-avoiders out there with advise for how to make the next month bearable (and I know already that vanilla-flavored soy milk on cereal is not bearable) please let me in on your tricks, secrets, and various other dairy-free coping mechanisms.

  1. We love dairy free (also nut and egg free) bakery treats from www.sweetalexis.com. The cookies taste homemade and it's hard to believe they don't have any dairy products at all. They have muffins, quick breads and chocolate cake too.
