I'm not in the mood to see the positive right now. So, please, if you have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. Just let me pout at my little dairy-free pity party here in peace. Don't tell me how I can make most of this stuff at home. Don't offer sources for alternative products that are "almost" or "just like" it. I want the real thing. I don't want a copycat recipe. I don't want to make it at home. I want the real thing and I want to have it made for me.

Should I add, "So there" and stick my tongue out?


  1. Wait--I think I missed something.

    WHY are you doing this to yourself??


  2. Oh, here I thought I'd mentioned that. Silly me.

    I have an allergy to the proteins in cow's milk. I've had it most of my life, but lately I'd really been noticing the symptoms: upper respiratory congestion, ear infections, joint pain, lethargy, crankiness (maybe that last one was more in response to all the others). Finally, I decided that it's just not worth all that to eat dairy.

    The truth is, quite a few of the things on this list, I can have in some form or another, it just requires some special ingredients and that I make it myself. Mostly, I'm missing the convenience of just picking it up at the grocery store or ordering it off the menu.

  3. What? Doritos have milk in them? Heck, I'm gonna start believing they're good for me in that case. :)

  4. I'm so sorry. That is a pretty comprehensive list of The Yummy Stuff. Pass the carrot sticks and apple juice while you breathe easier and feel better. :)


Sorry--I've had to close comments down because I've been getting so much spam.
