Hello there everyone–I can’t believe I am writing this post, mainly because I can’t believe how fast 6 months has gone by. It’s been just about 6 months since I gave up dairy and my boyfriend (haha). Needless to say I am 98% free of dairy and 100% free of him!

Can you believe that I am still dairy free?! The 2% is the occasional mashed potato I have that I’m assuming has some butter in it, but for the most part my life consists of dairy substitutes and I couldn’t be happier.

If you are reading this post and are confused, you can read my segway to being dairy free here. I have to say, I still don’t miss the dairy. I mean yea, it’s weird not stopping for ice cream or buying it at the store, but I gotta tell you, I make so many better choices when I’m out to eat and at the grocery store.

I know that most people feel as though they could never give up dairy but that “can’t” attitude is just hindering you, that’s all. It sounds so cheesy (pardon the pun) but you really can do what you set your mind to. My only concern now is that, since I am traveling to Rome this summer, we all know I’m going to want to try some dairy, how do I work that into my diet without becoming sick??

If you have any suggestions I will take them! Until then…


xoxo Lindsay

    This is huge! I know that I’m slightly lactose intolerant. I just can’t – for the life of me – give up my cheese!

    I love how you are 100% free of your boyfriend…I laughed out loud. Good for you giving up dairy. I’ve drastically cut back…drinking cashew milk, and not eating a lot of cheese either. I do eat the occasional ice cream sandwich, but dairy doesn’t really bother me too much. I have no suggestions on Rome, but I’m excited to read about your trip.

    You are my hero! I don’t think I could do dairy free. I gave up meat back in August and I thought that would be totally hard, but it hasn’t at all and I feel so much better and healthier.

    I’ve been debating wether to try going diary-free for a bit – I appreciate your candor. I just don’t think I can willingly give up cheese because cheese IS life. ­čÖé
