Been Dairy Free For 3 Days...however...

Recommended Posts

almost 8 weeks off gluten.

still not feeling great.

decided that maybe i should

nix the dairy too.

after MUCH

trial and error,

i finally found a yogurt (wholesoy)

&

milk (kinniknik or whatever: )

that i can eat and drink

w/o gagging.

but after i had soy milk

with gluten-free cereal last night,

i became just as

gassy and bloated and

gurgly as i did with dairy!

maybe even more so!

:huh:

help!

It could be that you're sensitive to soy as well. My son's allergist says that many people who are sensitive to milk are also sensitive to soy. My daughter had the same reaction you did to soy when she was younger, but now she can tolerate Silk soy milk and Silk soy yogurt, but she was on rice milk for 2 years before we re-introduced soy. You could try almond milk, hazlenut milk or rice milk (we use Whole Foods 360 brand). Many soy yogurts still have dairy in them in the yogurt cultures. You could try just the soy milk without the yogurt and see if you have the same reaction.

Good luck!

I like Pacific Rice Milk and their Almond Milk--both vanilla and plain (depending on the situation) :)

That's what we use, too. Soy has *always* bothered me, if I consumed very much of it. My dd had the same reaction to soy that she had to dairy....has given up both, for now. Me, too. At first I thought it was a tragedy, but we've adjusted. I use rice milk or almond milk in place of dairy milk in my cooking, and it works just fine!

I use almond milk or Dairy Free (potato based milk substitute). The kids prefer Dairy Free for their chocolate milk. The almond milk works really well in baking, mashed potatoes, smoothies, chai lattes, etc.

i will try and stop the soy as well.

why i still feel super nauseas too?

thought that would get better

once i stopped the gluten

has anyone had

any dairy free/soy free yogurt?

It's called Ricera. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's chunky and gross. Just depends on which batch you get I guess. Some people make yogurt out of coconut milk. I've never done it though.
