I feel so much better!
It is crazy to think that I was putting so many bad things into my body just because they tasted good. I have had no dairy since my last post.
Sad things first……I learned that I can’t have chocolate, cookies-unless I make them, my non dairy creamer has a milk protein in it and is making me not feel so well-so good-bye to that too, No more cool ranch Dorito's . I must go and find some different bread. I could go on but you get the idea.
Happy things I have more energy. My stomach isn’t upset and gurgling. Cooking has been fun! Goat cheese is wonderful ~never thought I would say that~. My husband is being very supportive. My Hypoglycemia ~if I ever truly had it~ is gone. I am not as hungry now~I think my body was unable to digest so many of my foods that it never got nutrition=always hungry.
The best thing I found out there to eat is called Tofutti cuties they are a dairy free dessert , made from tofu, that resemble an ice cream sandwich. YUM!!!!!!
I made Chili over the weekend. I followed a recipe that said to use 2-3 tsp. of chili powder. Me not being a cook thought that chili powder is what makes the ingredients into Chili~found out it is what give it the heat. Along with the peppers, chili powder and the sprinkle of red peppers I made some pretty hot chili.
I am very ready to try making cookies and corn meal next. My Sister-in-law told me how to substitute the eggs with applesauce.
I went into and bought items for the first time at Trader Joes. This Friday I will be trying New Seasons and Whole Foods.
This will be a trial and error process, but I am excited.
