Milk. Bleh. I can’t drink it, as I am lactose intolerant, and to be honest I’m not fond of the taste any more either. Yogurt and Ice Cream on the other hand, that is a different story. I used to crave yogurt, and eat it – only to pay for it later. Ice cream I would have an occasional bowl, also to pay for it later. So, both I just live without. Large amounts of cheese is a real pain for me too, but cheese and sour cream are most of the time not as bad as the others. Anyways, I found this amazing thing a couple of months ago, Almond Milk. When I found this I found love. I particularly love Blue Diamond’s Almond Breeze, Vanilla flavor. A good friend of mine, James, whom I met during massage school who is also lactose intolerant introduced me to Almond Milk. It’s fabulous, lovely, genius!
Now, for those of you who are thinking, “oh you poor thing!”, really I’m fine! Although, God has a very funny sense of humor. I am married to what I call a Dairy Addict. Ryan can seriously eat cheese by the block, loves milk, and loves ice cream. It’s insane! What are the odds? I mean, really?! For the first, what seemed like forever he would always ask me if I wanted a bowl of ice cream or this and that, only to receive this look of, “umm…are you kidding me? How many times must we go over this?!” from me. Haha, the good news is – our children have at least a half a chance of not being lactose intolerant like their mother.
