milk hater

or at least that's what my stomach is these days...

Just think back to Ernest Scared Stupid when the trolls experience death by milk. That's pretty much me as of the past 6 months or so. I've become lactose intolerant. Both WebMD (ha) and my doctor have confirmed that "yes" this does happen to many people later in life. yippee.

I'm learning what I can and can't eat. It seems from my reading that I might have a slightly more severe case because I'm pretty much having to cut out all dairy items. I guess it's really not as bad as I make it out to be, but you better watch out if I eat any of the following will be B.A.D. (just ask trey!):

1. Ice cream (Blue Bell is the worst)
2. Cheese
4. Milk
5. Some chocolates
6. Anything that has milk or dry milk product high up on the ingredient list
7. Cream sauces (alfredo, sour cream, etc)...not that I eat much of that anyway

Things I can eat:

1. Yogurt...surprise!

2. Lactaid milk

3. The strawberries on the side of that cheesecake :)

I'll keep you updated with any great recipes for those of you who may be joining me in a life without lactose.
