Ok, Ok, Ok everyone calm down…………

My last post sparked some negativity and that’s not ok with me.  My last post made people feel like this…..


But I want to make lemonade out of all those lemons, oh shit…..


Life has given me no sugar and water…Maybe in a year or two I’ll get some water and sugar from life.

By the way, this week I decided to eliminate dairy.  I’ve read in multiple places that going dairy-free can transform your health.  So what the hell?  I’ll do it.  I’ve always had a parmesan cheese problem.  I used to use heaping piles of parmesan cheese on my spaghetti and meatballs.  Well, not no more.  That stops today.  Actually, it stopped Monday.  My love affair with parmesan cheese must come to an end.

I also have a Starbucks problem.  Now, the only non-dairy option for milk is soymilk.  I have read conflicting stuff about soymilk being good for you.  No one knows for sure.  It’s kinda like recovering from a stroke – no one knows a GD thing.  So, Starbucks you need more non-dairy options to choose from like coconut or almond milk.  Soymilk alone doesn’t cut it.  That’s all.

  1. Good luck with trying to eliminate dairy. I would have a really tough time with it. I have a friend who swears that soy makes her sick, but who knows? My theory is that a little bit of everything and not too much of anything is the way to go, but that’s so obviously self-serving I would ignore it. Love your kitty pics. You can never have too many kitty posts for me.

  2. Lol!!

  3. I would fail at this diet by eliminating dairy.

  4. Does this mean milk chocolate is out-of-bounds? Thats a loaded question in 14 days.

  5. I agree. Starbucks needs to get with the program. I have thought about bringing my own and seeing if they would use it. We have a locally owned coffee shop with amazing chai and I really want to ask them if I can bring my own almond or coconut milk.

  6. I’m 62 and confess to an on-going, life-long addiction to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. And with those you must have milk. Although now it’s skim.

    • My friend has the exact same addiction, PB&J sandwiches with a glass of milk. She’s pregnant right now and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made her nauseous and she texted me and said “I don’t think the child I’m carrying is mine. No kid of mine wouldn’t like PB&J sandwiches!”

      • If you give up dairy, how will you eat brownies? Brownies absolutely need either a glass of milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or are you giving up brownies too? Is this a diet for health or penance?

      • I was told no peanut butter while pg or breastfeeding. PB is the #1 food allergy and the research shows that the baby can be sensitized in utero. Maybe it’s her bodies way of protecting her baby. I can hardly wait til PB is back on the ok to consume list. I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER!!

        • Oh well I don’t know what she was told, I have no doubt that she’s not eating anything she’s not supposed to, she’s obsessive about what she can and can’t put into her body.

        • When I was pregnant pretty much I ate everything, no one ever told me not to it this or that, well just tuna, I was told not to eat it to often, my baby was born at 36 weeks over 7 lbs, he eats everything now, no issues with food.
          I told my husband about your new way of eating and I ask him if he will be willing to quit eating dairy, his answer was fast and clear NO, hahaha. Be strong Amy you can do it!

    • I’m in the wrong place here, apparently … The thought of drinking a glass of milk gives me the heebie-jeebies, and I don’t much like jelly, although it is good at cutting the PB in a PB&J, which maybe explains why I don’t need a glass of milk with one. Butter gags me. Yogurt and ice cream are in an entirely different category than dairy, to me. cheese, though, Iis delectable; I just found a goat cheese Brie from VT that I adore.
