Its a FOOD Log!

Day 1
Okay, today started out pretty darn good if I do say so myself.
Breakfast was toast, and eggs cooked with a bit of olive oil in the stead of butter. A bit of salt and pepper and we were good to go for a bit. The kidlet was still hungry - so I fixed and enjoyed a bowl of cream of wheat with him. Sweetened with a touch of honey. I felt pretty good even after having those things.
Mid-morning snack was an english muffin with sausage and I have decided that the english muffin had an "off" flavor. I looked up one ingredient and am not likely to want them again. Lactic acid gives the bread an "acid" flavor.
My 4 year old wanted juice. And I have an abundance of apple juice concentrate. I noted after having that I was "burpy" and developed a mild case of heartburn. Not sure what triggered that, but will check apple juice again later on.
This next part is one in which I did have milk in a cookie...... went to HEB to get goodies for the boys to eat while they visited with my girlfriend. Munchmouse ( the one yr old for those who know me) -- did not want his cookie. So......... I ate it. I checked labels later and found the ingredients included less than 2% of skim milk and whey. I am counting it as a "milk" for the day and it does affect my food log. *sighs* I also had grapes -- munchmouse LOVES grapes.
When I went to my clients house to clean, she offered me icecream -- one of my favorites no less -- butter pecan. mmmmm... I miss it, but not enough to "want" some and feel lousy. So, I opted for a grape popsicle. Which was sugar free and tasted good.
After getting done with work, I called my girlfriend and asked her what I could get her from the store that she might need So, on my way out the store with the bananas, bacon, onions and Sean's icecream... I ate a banana... YUM
For dinner we had Sean's chili in frito pies. No milk there... meat, beans, and onion soup mix. After that I shared an apple with the kidlets.
How do I feel --- well its 10 pm at night and I am alert and feel good. I am going to go to bed and get my rest and start all over again in the morning. I will have to say that by eliminating nearly all of the milk products from my eating habits that I am already noticing a difference. Yeah, that one cookie for the day means I really should start day 1 as tomorrow.... however, I do not have that kind of patience or time. So -- today remains day 1 and I will keep moving on!

Many blessings to you that keep visiting me. Share my blog with others! Perhaps there are others out there that have a food allergy and just do not realize it. Milk is a big one that many many people are allergic to or sensitive to and just do not realize it. I am 35 yrs old and just now am "feeling" a major impact on my body that milk has had. I am going to work on the boys too. I think both munchie and kidlet have milk allergies too. Time will tell.

Thank you for visiting!

Hi Heather,
I just linked here from yet another fun (and kind) comment you left on Farmgirl Fare. Well, congratulations on the birth of your brand new baby blog! Watch out, though, this blog stuff is addicting. There are soooo many out there it's incredible. : )

P.S. Munchmouse---too cute!

welcome to the blog world, heather! i'll be nice because i don't want you to tell god on me! i'm new to it to, and Farmgirl is right - it's rather addicting. for instance, i should probably be working right now. i too would be mortified if all my colleagues at work read my blog since they're all 'good' graduate students.

i love that you call your kids "kidlets" and i'm looking forward to hearing more from you. i know at least two people with milk allergies, and they still get to enjoy lots of yummy vittles. at least now you can feel a lot better (mac trucks hurt).

Oh cool, another new blog with a lively writer! Plus munchkins! How sweet. (note to self: add to short list of blogs)

I have a good friend and several family members who can't eat/drink milk. I've done a bit of adapted cooking for them and it's been fun. In fact, one of them loves creamy stuff and I consider it a challenge to deliver all sorts of notMilk that is amazngly close to the "real" thing. Like creme brulee made with coconut milk. Oh. My. Decadence.
