It's OVER!

As you know if you read this post back in February I decided to give up dairy products. After talking to Lindsey I thought it might not be a bad idea to see if it helped with my allergies. Well...for the better part of 6 weeks I was strong and didn't eat any dairy. Even when we all brought food to work (and I even brought something with dairy) I didn't eat any of it. I am officially finished!

There were several things that didn't bother me about not eating dairy...for instance, I really haven't missed milk except when I baked chocolate chip cookies. I haven't missed butter or sour cream. Even though I used to bring yogurt to work that hasn't been a problem either. My only problem has been CHEESE! Yes I know they make veggie slices, and I'm just not willing to go there!

I really didn't even miss cheese until I realized how many things I LOVE have cheese in them. For instance, my favorite sushi roll has cream cheese in it...so I knew instantly I wouldn't be giving that up. I even gave up eating cheese on my favorite dish when we went to eat Mexican. Then this past Sunday Mimi made her famous cheeseball, and that was the kicker. I grew up LOVING this cheeseball and the thought that I couldn't eat it anymore was just too much for me! It was at that point that I decided I just wasn't going to do it anymore.

I did think there was a slight improvement in my allergies, but honestly not enough to make it worth it. So folks while I'm not going to completely go back to dairy, I'm also no longer dairy free. I gave it my best shot, and I don't think it's the best thing for me! Just wanted to let you all know!

Happy Friday!! :)
