Still experimenting with dairy - this is hard to figure out

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I'll have to take some more time to go more into detail, but so far I seem to be able to tolerate goat yogurt well, but not goat cheese. I also had a reaction to some restaurant food that I thought I did not react to before. Today, after a bowl of goat yogurt my pulse was lower than it had been in a while, about 78 while driving my car.
There are just too many factors that could make a difference.
Tomorrow I will start serious exercise again so it will be interesting what happens.

    Do you use fresh goat milk or canned. I hope you find something that works for you :)

  Well, thats something! I can do some goat cheeses better than cow but still isn't the best thing for me. I have been trying to like the dairy substitutes, but it is hard and a lot of them have stuff in there I don't really want to be eating. emoticon

    You might also try the truly non-dairy alternatives -- there are all sorts of "dairy" products made with coconut or almond milk. I LOVE the coconut milk "ice cream" (but note: I grew up thinking sherbet was ice cream -- I *like* the less creamy texture).

I've been seeing a few coupons out there for the So Delicious brand. They make little mini ice cream sandwiches that are about 3-4 bites, and very tasty to my reckoning. Another company makes a short list of ice creams from coconut milk in nice flavors. I can occasionally find yogurts made with either of these "milks." Mostly, the big chain stores don't carry them...although I see they're listed as available on the WalMart webpage (?). I've never seen them in my local, but evidently it's a possibility. I get most of my things of this nature from a local independent which really supports the regional growers and producers. I like to do whatever I can to aid that effort, so I always start there.

If you can't get the goat milk to settle, see if you can find any coconut or almond products.

    I have never tried goat yogurt. I do know that restaurant food and what we buy in the store are two entirely different animals.
Stick with the home foods whenever possible.

Don't look back, you're not going that way.

    It seems that many things on our journey is worked out by trial and error. I was just talking to another Spark Friend about eating low-carb and she found that eating when she limited her carb intake too much she'd feel woozy and light-headed after long runs. So, for her limiting her carbs to about 200g per day works better. We are all unique in many ways and have to find what works for us. I hope you'll eventually find what works best for you.

    Trial and error is the only way really isn't as we are all individuals and the outcomes are often unique to us?
There are so many factors that can affect and effect us.

Great to catch up on how it's going
