Whey! My accidental diet

So I am allergic to milk. Specifically, whey. You know like little miss muffet....eating her curds and "whey". That kind of whey. Thankfully, whey isn't in all dairy products, and even more thankfully, it is not in hard cheese. So pizza is not forbidden!!

I have had 2 allergic reactions in the last 2 weeks. My fault. I should know better. But I always seem to test the limits, sometimes in serious denial that I am in fact allergic. When will I learn because the result is torture.

I won't go into details, let's just say that I have spent an awful lot of time SITTING in the bathroom. Hours to be more precise.

It is so hard not being able to drink milk, eat ice cream or even yogurt. I LOVE yogurt, but straight up, those 3 things will almost put me in the hospital. A small amount mixed in with something is pushing it, but I can often get away with it.

My first reaction...cereal. Fibre cereal to be exact. Can you imagine the double whammy that gave me?

My second reaction...mashed potatoes.

Now I used to be able to get away with both, but apparently not anymore.

The good news? There is good news to this...I lost about 7lbs in those many hours sitting in the bathroom.
