I'm considering going off dairy for a while. Every once in a while I take a break from sweets. I feel completely saturated in them and I feel like I to the point where one granule of even super fine sugar will send me into a diabetic coma. (I can make fun because i have diabetic friends) Usually I go one month without sweets. Bad sweets. I won't have dessert or soda or candy or chocolate. The chocolate is the hardest thing. i will, however, allow myself to eat Edy's all fruit popsicles. It's really not hard after a while. If i need something sweet, usually a piece of fruit will suffice. But the chocolate is killer. Nothing can replace it.
So I think i might do the same thing with dairy. Do i dare go off dairy? It's such a staple in my life. Can i go a day without CHEESE? Oh heavens. I don't know. This time though i think i might just go two weeks. I will probably make a set of rules, like milk is ok. But nothing else. Unless it's necessary for cooking, like a bit of butter. But i'll try hard to omit it. Basically i've been realizing I eat cheese and sour cream, but mostly cheese, for every meal. Ohhh man. I now want some cheese really bad. And I guess yogurt is ok too because I do like yogurt and i eat good stuff. Not too fatty. Ok, so maybe this is amended to a no sour cream/butter (for the most part)/cheese couple of weeks. Ohhh the cheese, the cheese. Right now i have 4 different kinds in my fridge--sharp white cheddar, goat, shredded various kinds (<-- first i typed 'kids.' Haha! ew) and maybe some brie in there. How can i have a salad without cheese in it??? GROSS. Ohhhh now i'm starting to get really worried. This may be a really stupid idea. But now it kind of makes me want to do it even more. Since it would be so hard.
This is kind of/really a lame post, sorry. Have you ever done anything like this? When i went off sweets for a month in jr high, I feel like it was over Christmas (stupid!) and the Super Bowl, for which my mom makes fabuloso delights. I remember keeping all of my Christmas candy on my dresser and it made the hugest candy mountain. A couple of years ago I did it and ended it on my birthday with a chocolate cheesecake. My point is, i ate all the candy and it's not like i make any life changes. I like conducting experiments with no real purpose or lasting effects. Well, this is all i've got for now. Leave a comment if you want. I might need some encouraging words. Sorry though.. it's Monday, this is the best i can do.
