It’s working! Going totally dairy free has shown a marked reduction in spew, and less discomfort for Pickle when he needs to pass wind. Hurrah!
So this is going to be my way of life until his digestive system is more developed; it’s the push I needed to get back on the dairy free wagon for myself, too.
I’m feeling better for it, that’s for sure. No gurgling, no desire to rip my stomach out with my bare hands, no pain. I miss ice cream and cheese, and tonight’s nachos just won’t be the same without lashings of cheese and sour cream, but it’s a small price to pay.
This week’s dairy free offerings:
~ creamy Greek lemon chicken (made creamy with egg yolks, not actual cream) with mash
~ beef nachos
~ smokey aubergine and spring onion curry with poppadoms
~ slow-cooked pork with apple gravy
~ tuna pasta bake
~ chicken teriyaki with beans and mushrooms
I did indulge in dairy while we were in Arrowtown……I couldn’t help it! There were crepes and croissants from Bonjour, a steak sandwich with blue cheese and béarnaise sauce at Millbrook, and the beetroot velvet cake with white chocolate mousse at Carrick. Poor Pickle suffered a bit because of it, which made me realise that dairy really does have a nasty effect on the wee mite.
