Our family’s journey to dairy free living.
One afternoon, my husband came home from work and told me he wanted to give up dairy. At the time, we were living in France, land of all the cheese, and I was 9 months pregnant with our first child. Honestly, I was not emotionally equipped to handle such a request. He explained that he thought it would resolve the unexplained symptoms that he’d been suffering from for years, and I hesitantly agreed to give it a try.
Within two weeks, the majority of those symptoms were completely gone, and he felt healthier and more energetic than he had in years. There was no use in fighting it. I knew right then that we would be embracing this “lifestyle” for the foreseeable future.
I had already been blogging about food and passionate about cooking for years at this point, so I knew that I could find a way to accommodate these new dietary restrictions. Living abroad made it a little harder, but we slowly figured it out. It hasn’t been easy, and we’ve definitely stumbled along the way, but we now live a fully satisfying life without dairy.
Three years later, we’re now settled down in my hometown in Wisconsin, also land of all the cheese, and we’re still happily dairy free.
