I hv been told I cant hv dairy, animal products nor gluten. So, I am looking for other alternatives. Any suggestions?
yeah, I found out recently that I had pcos, I have to be on a strict life changing diet and I tried the soy milk with some cereal last night and almost gagged. :(
I wouldnt hv a prob with the raw vegi's/fruits but getting rid my dairy intake which is minimal as is...(1% cottage cheese, once or twice a week...0-3% yogurt(when in the mood for smth to hv at night) low fat cheese's(usually in a sandwich for bkfst), 1 cup of milk for my coffee in the morning like 4x a week)
Without the gluten, there is pretty much nothing I can have...no whole wheat, no crackers, no granola...
Feels like I hv hit a brick wall on top of the illness! :(
I simply have to find another way bcz soy products are simply a no no and I cant hv anymore dairy...although I hv been on the 1% milk for last 20 years.
Maybe I am just over reacting by all the info i hv been hearing on youtube from other people...Perhaps a nutritionist would be the best way to find alternatives if in fact I really do need to go that drastic measure.:(
Thanks so much for the help you guys...means a lot.♥
It depends on what dairy product you are talking about and what you are substituting it in.
We don't need dairy. Regardless of what the commercial says it doesn't do the body good. It is the perfect food for suckling calves but it isn't good for people. Not even the calcium does much; the countries that have the highest rates of osteoporosis are the same countries that have the highest dairy consumption.
There are non-dairy cheeses that don't taste that good on their own but are fine in a sandwich. Some of the non-dairy ice creams are quite good though. The only thing I generally use milk for is cereal and my favorite for this is almond milk. As far as soy milks go Silk is pretty good; it is the least "beany" tasting of all the ones I tried; when I need milk for baking use Silk and it works fine.
thanks, I have heard about that I will see if they have that too & see what can work for me. Since so far, I tried the soya lite & vanilla soya light and almost puked...like I said I use the milk for coffee or cereal...which is why I wanted to find something that worked or had to go back to my nutritionist and find some other solution. :)
Tofutti makes awesome "ice cream", and some pretty decent cream cheese and yummy pizza!. Almond milk is a great alternative to soy milk. Soy Kaas is probably the best dairy free cheese I have had thus far. I know you said you don't like soy products, but honestly I love this stuff! I'm not sure about gluten though....
Almond Milk, it comes in many different flavors (chocolate, vanilla, etc.) and if you weren't aware you were drinking almond milk, you would think it was regular milk.
Rice Milk, Coconut Milk, oatmilk
Here is a list of more alternatives:
thank you so much...i will def see if they have that here abroad.
thanks so much...i will have to try the coconut milk...:)
