I've just been on a mega shopping trip to stock up on groceries for the flat, but with a little twist - everything I've bought has had to be dairy free! Eek! My doctor thinks I'm allergic to something, and since a Lactose Intolerance seems most plausible I'm having to go completely dairy free until they get the results of my blood tests. It's made me pay a lot more attention to ingredient lists on labels! Rich Tea biscuits don't contain milk, but a lot of food does! So I picked up some products from the Sainsbury's Free From range:
So the first things I searched for was sauces for meals.. I picked up Tikka Masala, Korma and a Chicken Hotpot! This means I won't be loving off pasta and noodles next week haha
Yes, I have a sweet tooth. I'm not sure how nice these will taste - dairy free chocolate is made with oil. But I'm willing to try!
My mum spotted these and I think was feeling a bit sorry for me haha!!
The big issue with a dairy-free diet is that you are really restricting the amount of Calcium and Vitamin D you are consuming - important for healthy teeth and bones! So I picked up some chewy vitamin tablets that are aimed at kids but can be eaten by adults too! They taste of strawberry ;)
I'm a huge tea drinker (noo!) so I had to buy Alpro Soya 'milk'! I know you can buy Lactose-free cows milk, but incase I have an allergy to milk rather than an intolerance to lactose, I have to stay clear of that just now. I hear this stuff is minging, but I need to put something in my tea! Then I saw this Ribena which has calcium in it! Hooray, an easy way to get more calcium!
