  • Information About Dairy Please!

    I have this bad habit of 'tasting' my husband's milk. It is whole milk, un-homoginzed, and comes in glass pint bottles to our doorstep, but it is not raw. I think I probably have an intolerance to dairy (leaky gut, etc.), but the sensual romantic in me can't help slurping the cream from the top and then gulping back half a bottle. In the moment I'm thinking "glass bottle, local, fatty, doorstep...". But I'm quite sure this causes reactions (insulin?), so I'm asking you wise forum members for info and/or resources that will enable my rational mind to convince the sensual me that I ought to put the kettle on and make some tea instead of indulging in a brief thick, creamy, and exquisite milk experience.

    Websites? Books? Information from your heads? Thanks!

    Can you get the delivery man to bring you cream?

      A cream delivery would result in me gulping down all the cream in one sitting, I'm afraid. I think it might be the casein that I have a problem with, as well as lactose and denatured proteins as a result of pasturization. But that would be yummy. My goal is to be dairy-free, I just need the information to convince my whole self.

        Opening up a can of creamy delicious coconut milk does the same thing for me :-D

          Yeah, I used to love coconut milk too, but I seem to react to it now too. I will try it again in a few months... thanks for the idea!

            Oh. BUMMER.
            Hopefully it will work for you again, down the road :-(
