Good Bye, Milk...

Starting right now, my personal journey takes a new path.  I have decided to try a dairy free diet to help with my allergy and asthma symptoms, as well as some stomach problems I have been experiencing for a while now (tmi?).  I was inspired by a friend, who recently found out that her daughter is allergic to casein, a protein found in all mammals' milks.  The symptoms she described were alot like what I have been experiencing, so I figure I will give it a shot.  It certainly could not hurt, huh?

It is going to be hard, I know.  But I just spent a good portion of my evening reading up on dairy-free living and I think I am up to the challenge.  Mostly reading alot of labels and asking alot of questions (ugh!).  But if it works, it will all be worth it.
