My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Dairy Alternative Month
I will say there is truly a month for everything! Thank you to Janeen for not only adding me to the list of dairy-free blogs, but for letting me know about this every important month of Dairy Alternative Month.

Kate DeBevois from the Philadelphia Wellness Examiner wrote an article about it and included links to some milk free sites. Some on her list are new to me, so I’m excited to check them out.

I’ll take a page out of Janeen’s book and post some more of my favorite milk-free websites.

Go Dairy Free (yes, even though I know she is listed in the article – I love her site and book)
Milk Allergy Companion
Chocolate Emporium
Amanda’s Own
Cherry Brook Kitchens
Enjoy Life Foods
Tofutti - I can still have my chips and dip!!!
Silk - yogurts and “milk”

We’re “lucky” in that dairy, although it’s can be very hard to shop dairy-free (many many bizarre and “regular” things contain dairy), it is one of the easiest if not the easiest food to substitute for. Many of you who have been to my house know that I can serve foods that would fool anyone into believing it was made with dairy and not without. So I will now go and enjoy the rest of Dairy Alternative Month even if I do still miss cheese every day of my life.

One of the happiest days in my life was the day that I was able to eat cheese again :) There are lots of days that trump that - getting married, having babies, etc... but being able to have dairy again really made me appreciate what I had lived without.

I do agree though - dairy is one of the easiest things to substitute for and with so many people who have some form of dairy allergy that is a good thing!

I'll eat a piece of cheese for you today - okay? :)
