SO Delicious? YES, It Is.

You know me, I *love* to try new things… especially things that cost more than what I used to pay for things. I hate wasting money…

God keeps pushing me…

I’m quickly getting over the price tag to be healthy. Some invest in stocks, we shall invest in food as our medicine, and be grateful for the variety of options we have.

{I truly am grateful, if you haven’t figured that out}

So at some point between April and June, my body decided the yogurt I could once handle…. was suddenly a “no go” – and my stomach started treating it like it did other casein and lactose.

I was so sad… I love my yogurt. I felt like it balanced out my body, especially when I had mouth sores.

Will this be forever? I don’t really know. I live in the now.

I haven’t gotten this sensitive to gluten before in my life as I have been in the past 6 months, nor to dairy like the past 1.5 years have been – so the whole playing field is changing.

Well I hadn’t been having mouth sores, then I got some again when cross contaminated, and they just don’t seem to want to leave.

It can make it very hard to eat. But I’ve been avoiding any citrus and as much sugar as I can. Lots of mouth washing after eating. Motrin… I even got some alum (spice) to help heal it.

I also decided I really needed to try to find a good alternative that was dairy free.

Ta-dah! Say hello to SO Delicious Cultured Coconut Milk.

Dairy Free. Gluten Free. Soy Free.

BUT… it was GREEK, so that made me really slow to buy more than one. I never liked the dry taste of greek yogurts, and tried MANY to make sure that was the case.

I still didn’t care for it.

This was nothing like greek yogurt (to me). It was such an excellent option, I bought much more tonight to share with my other lactose intolerant peeps in our family.

Yum!

Plus, 18 net carbs and 130 calories for something so good for you – isn’t a bad trade-off at all. Plus it tasted good and didn’t make me sick. (That’s kind of important… )

BONUS.

“He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.”

Isaiah 40:29
