Comments on: February Challenge: Dairy Free for 28 Days Healthy Eating and Healthy Living for a Happy Life!

I know a few people that are really fond of doing Whole30 and like what it teaches them.

I agree – I have been vegetarian for years but never went vegan because of cheese, especially stinky fancy cheese. Bleu cheese crumbles were my downfall! But, I look and feel better without it and don’t even crave it anymore!

By: JoDee Sun, 22 Feb 2015 20:28:35 +0000 I recently completed my second Whole30 and found that dairy was causing me to break out too. I thought wine would be the hardest to give up when doing the first one but it was definitely cheese. It was the first food group I added back in and it made me feel terrible. Funny how I never connected the dots before. One of the reasons it was so hard to give up is because dairy was my go-to snack. Thankfully I don’t miss it as much anymore. I obtain for the most part but indulge in a good havarti every once in a while.

Thanks for your nice note!

I agree with you that cheese is the hardest thing to replicate. We gave up milk and ice cream ages ago without issue, as there are ample DIY and store-bought options. Cheese is definitely more difficult. Funnily enough, I think cheese provides me with the worst reactions (of course!). Whole Foods has a lot of artisanal nut cheeses these days – you may want to check it out if you haven’t already!

Good luck!

I have pretty much gone dairy free years ago except for cheese. I cannot find a good non-dairy cheese alternative. I have been to France and my favorite is French cheeses and I even live now in Wisconsin! So I love my cheese but, having tried many of the alternatives out there, they all taste like plastic or nothing.

I appreciate any feedback or suggestions from others. Good luck!
