Good news! Almond milk is delicious.
If you miss parmesan cheese, try nutritional yeast. Delish and healthy.
Sour cream--Tofutti makes a soy imitation that is not too bad.
Butter--Earth Balance is dairy free, and tastes great.
Cheese--Daiya imitation cheese is delicious. Kroger has a variety of these, so
should health food grocery chains. You do not have to go without, just cook
your own food with these products. It's healthier too!

The end of September I was diagnoses with an allergy to cow's milk, specifically the proteins casein and whey. After 2 dairy free days I began to feel great again. I had been coughing for years but for the past year it became more hacking and choking. Now my sinuses have cleared, I stopped coughing, no longer have reflux and even get a little relief from constipation.

OK it's been a couple months and I am still grieving the loss of yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, sour cream, butter and especially cheese. No more Mexican, Italian, and pizza.

The casein seems to be in many cereals, bars, soups etc. so I have gotten good about labels. Many of my favorites are no longer an option.

The newer substitutions for yogurt and ice cream are high in sugar, so I skip those. Trying to lose weight is a struggle right now and have gained a few pounds.

Having a little pity party, sorry.
