Eating dairy free is HARD

Day 3 of eliminating dairy from my diet (on a trial basis to see if it helps Elliot). Hungry ALL. THE. TIME.

Technically we're waiting on blood test results, but I figured I would get a jump on the possibility that it's a casein allergy/sensitivity. Didn't realize (a) just how hard it would be and (b) it can take up to 3 WEEKS for all the offending proteins to leave mom's system.

To make matters worse, it's the Christmas season. There are goodies and parties, and hardly anything I'm allowed to eat. Bringing fruit and hummus (for dipping veggies) to our Tuesday morning gathering... I think there will be a salad too. That's it for me - no cookies, no quiche, nothing with chocolate or cheese or butter.
