Realized I have a pretty serious dairy allergy which only came to light after doing an elimination diet a few months back. Along with trolling past threads here, I have been online looking for resources.
So far, I am really struggling with the following:
- finding foods I like that don't involve dairy to start with (as opposed to, say, having a cheese-less pizza, which makes me weep for humanity)...I really love cheese. Happy for suggestions!
- finding good cheese alternatives - I have a good grip on the liquid side (love rice, soy & almond milks, soy creamer, etc), and generally ate more dairy solids than liquids to begin with. I know that I like soy cream cheese and find nutritional yeast a reasonable sub for parmesan cheese.
- to generally stop thinking about cheese all the time
- finding good resources for dairy-free living which are non-vegan (tho I acknowledge the debt to that community), not lactose (or 'curing lactose intolerance') focused, or just too chock full of hippie/alternative wellness stuff.
As this is an allergy, 'lactose-free' solutions won't really work, please do not suggest any homeopathic or chiropractor-y solutions or allergy shots.
