The day before Valentine's Day, we were having potatoes, asparagus, salad, and fish. I skipped the potatoes and had the rest. Turns out the fish had butter on it.
I was never terrible allergic/sensitive to dairy. It was a tiny thing resulting from gluten intolerance that had gone unnoticed. So I went back on. And it doesn't seem to be bothering me, eight days from then. So I will happily slip back onto some chocolates, cocoa, butter, sour cream, cream cheese, and other things I might have missed by going off dairy. (I was never a big cheese fan, however, so that didn't really affect me.)

Back in the world of milk!

Eya'khine azi isyr,

Literally, my FIRST WEEK as a gluten-free-er. Whoa, is this confusing. Thank God for the web, huh? Verrrry confusing to me are 2 popular books: Elisabeth Hasselbeck's gluten-free book and gluten-free for Dummies.

BOTH act as if dairy is ok. And, meat and chicken are fine. Yet, that's not what I understand.

Dairy is my biggie, as I love milk, cottage cheese, regular cheese & butter.

Can you, and anyone reading this, clarify the *dairy* issue, as well as the beef & chicken issues?


For the record, this is as far as I get: even if we as gluten-free folks eat regular 'ol Breakstone-brand cottage cheese (example), then the cow that produced the milk for the CC probably ate grains to produce the milk.

BUT, neither book discusses that.

Please help. I cannot avoid shopping forever!

many thanks to this newbie!

When animals eat grain, their body digests the gluten (breaks it down -that's what our bodies have trouble doing) and then uses it. The gluten does not end up in the muscle or milk or eggs of animals. Although grass-fed animals are better for you in terms of your overall health, grain-fed animals are safe to eat. Hope that helps! :)
