June 24th Going Dairy Free

Monday, June 24, 2013


I said I'd run, so I'm doing it today, right after I finish this blog!

Today I made my usual breakfast, chopping up a huge batch of veggies (bell peppers, vidalia onions, spinach, and mushrooms) for the omelet and storing the extra veggies for the rest of the week! Lunch was leftover cod and carrots. Dinner will be paleo coconut shrimp and mango chutney w/ steamed broccoli, and a small piece of dark chocolate. Snacks: nuts and a banana, and canned tuna if I'm still hungry.

I've noticed that I am feeling less and less able to handle dairy, even in its raw and lactose-free forms. I think I might have an allergy... it really makes my muscles and joints hurt, and makes me lethargic... so I am going to try to cut it completely out of my diet. I found a cultured coconut milk "yogurt" at the store yesterday, and I'm going to try to use that in place of sour cream! The only thing I will really miss is cheese. . . oh well.

UPDATE:
Today I did my weekly HIIT on the treadmill.
This is what I look like after sprinting intervals :)

Warmup: 2.5 mph for 5 min
Run: 30 sec between 4-6 mph, then 120 sec walk, repeat 8 times
Cooldown: Walk 2.5 mph for 5 min
Total Workout: 30 min

After that, I did some Weight Loss Yoga and stretching for 20 minutes.
Today = Success.

    When I cut WAY back on dairy, that is when I saw the most weight loss! I definitely have an allergy to it. Although I never had any symptoms except water retention.

    Good luck! It was a tough 2 weeks for me, I really missed my half & half in my coffee.

    You may find milk is the only problem because even ordinary yogurt is almost lactose free.

    I feel like i may be lactose too, only i get really phlemy & bloated. I am going to do this experiment too & see where it goes.

    good luck!

    ps: yes cheese is the downfall....

    LOL! Best of luck to you today! Your dinner sounds AMAZING!! Could you share the recipe with me?

    Bacon and Cheese are definitely my favorites...although I've been eating more turkey bacon lately and don't mind it too bad. Still need to go to the Health Foods store to look for the raw cheese you told me about last week!

    Anyhow, Happy Monday to you! emoticon
