This week I have been experimenting with adding dairy products back into my diet. I got rid of dairy a while ago because I thought I was having digestive issues. This was SOOO hard for me because dairy was my main source of protein (I don't like meat very much.) As I continued to do this, I had trouble feeling like I was getting enough protein. Then I started having a sneaking suspicion that I didn't have a dairy problem (occasionally I seemed to be able to eat cheese, yogurt or ice cream without a problem) instead, occasionally I would have a dairy problem because that dairy contained gluten.
When you have Celiac disease, dairy and gluten are a debilitating combination.
So this week I added back greek yogurt (Yum!) and cheese. I have been eating a TON of chicken and cheese quesadillas and I haven't gotten sick once.
It has been awesome!
Not only have I felt like I had more variety in my food. I felt like I was able to stay in my calories better because I was actually full.
Sorry vegans, I am back on the dairy train.
Next stop..gluten free pizza!
