    •  That's a great question to ask. Thanks for arming me with good ones. I'm doing my research to be able to stand my ground.    Ironically, my endo. Was the most helpful doctor I'd seen and my GP has generally not seemed to have a clue. I have PCOS and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, when I moved to the area and saw him, he was resistant to refer me to an endocrinologist (before I moved to the area, I'd already been seeing an endo. For three years for follow ups since I'd been diagnosed.) My endo. Was able to treat the thyroid antibodies well, they went down without synthroid or surgery (which previous doctor's had suggested). However, I think she dropped the ball on the Celiac blood panel (which I think endos should Definitely be more aware of). And my GP seemed much more aware on this issue. I think the takeaway is always do your research, advocate for yourself, and let second opinions fill in the gaps in knowledge some on your care team may have. (But also, ditch them if they don't know what they're talking about) Also, I live in an area with a doctor shortage...    Thanks for the welcome to the community!
    • Silk Cashew milk is pretty creamy and close to dairy milk, I love Macadamia milk, almond milk is a tad thin in most brands but a good sub and normally enriched with calcium, vitamin D and E. Coconut milk is a bit acquired and can range greatly in consistency, rice milk is normally very thin like 2% school carton milk and bland.  Elmhurst Harvest has started making SUPER rich and creamy milks with walnuts, almond, and macadamia nuts, with talk of bringing back the pistachio milk. I personally love the almond and cashew blends from blue diamond or silk.  If you need a nut free version Good Karma makes a decent flax milk. There are a few other brands out there that make some good ones here locally I love the HEB Organics almond milk best almond milk I have ever tasted rich, fulfilling, and just perfect.   NOTE, avoid the shelf stable versions from almond dream, cashew dream, blue diamond, silk, HEB they are normally much thinner and bland.  Cheese, On block cheeses Dayia makes a good Havarti, smoked Gouda, and cheddar. the shreds from there are pretty bad in taste. Follow your Heart makes a great provolone and decent on everything else. Lisanatti makes godly good shreds for jalapeno jack, cheddar, and mozzarella, they melt better then real cheese as they lack the greasy oil mess.  Their blocks on the other hand are way to soft.   Julian Bakery makes a passable mozzarella but only if your melting it over something or in something the flavor and texture is off but it is the only cheese I found you can order on amazon lol.   Kite Hill makes some really good soft cheeses, I tried a few others like hedei ho and found they are too salty or the flavor way to off to even call cheese. Ice cream there is Nada Moo, and So delicious for some of the top dairy free ones. I personally can only have one called wink which is a unsweetened one. Yogurt the So delicious and kite hill take the top in my opinion but they are the only ones that make a good unsweetened so I can not comment on others. I make my own parmesan and cheese sauces from scratch myself from various ingredients. Even make my own cheddar biscuits and cheesy garlic breads. Hell just made a batch of cheesy cheddar and chive biscuits this morning, OHH the buttery goodness of Nutiva Butter flavored coconut oil I love cooking with, sauteing, and using in savory foods. last week I found it was great with carb free noodles and herb seasoning. I am thinking of using it in my cauliflower Alfredo sauce next time also.
