Truth or Dairy

Not quite as fun as the game you remember from grade school, but WAY more important is this "game". It's the battle between humans and dairy. I think God knew my struggle, so he helped me out a bit by making me more lactose sensitive as I grow older... which I am now SOOOO thankful for!

So what's the deal with dairy? I'm glad you asked.

I first learned about the inflammatory properties of it when one of my sisters was in a car accident and had some problems with her spine. The doctor told her to stop eating dairy. WHAT? I thought dairy had good protein, calcium, and made my bones stronger? Oh wow, how false is that! Did you know that dairy is linked to a BUNCH of health problems? We're talking cancer, diabetes, autism, joint problems, etc...  Here's a great article on it.  

So what do we do from here? I mean, warm goat's cheese on top of a spinach and cranberry salad is bliss. I KNOW! But here's the magical word: moderation. Always moderation.

After my sister cut out dairy upon doctor's orders, I figured I should try it too. It wasn't a cold turkey thing, but I was adding coconut milk into my morning coffee instead of half-n-half. That was the first step. And then it was cutting down on the salty, super rich cheeses. That was quite difficult. But I decided that how I feel is JUST as important as how food tastes. That's really the key. Tastebuds are such a small part of our body, and yet we often let them rule our whole life.

In conclusion, let me give you a few benefits that I saw in myself when I cut down on dairy, and eventually cut it out. Be inspired babes!

  • Less breakouts
  • Smaller tummy/less bloating
  • Less after-meal crashes
  • No need for afternoon naps!
  • Smaller pores
  • More even skin tone
  • Less cellulite (because of all the salt in dairy!)
  • Less cows killed:)

Is giving up dairy an option for you? Give it a try! It never hurts. And tell me how you like it. As for me, there's no looking back. 

Much love, less cheese, and less cellulite!
