Food. Fooooooooooodddddd

I'll admit it. The quinoa salad I have for lunch every day is really tasty. And the cereal is delicious, even with plain soy milk. And even some of the new recipes we're trying are pretty good. But here's a list of things not to mention in my company, because if I'm feeling slightly off that day, chances are I'm going to burst into tears. ;)

  • Cheese. Don't even talk to me about cheese. There's a huge gaping hole in my heart (stomach?) that can only be filled by some good Brie, or Jarlsberg, or even plain old cheddar. And the little bit of goat cheese that I'm allowed to put in the quinoa salad isn't satisfying it.
  • Uncle Dave's Noodle Bake. In all honesty, this is one of our favourite dishes, and when I go over the list of ingredients, the only part of it I can conceivably have besides the spices is the onions, before they're goldened in butter. *sigh*
  • Macaroni salad. Mmm... It's not too bad now, but if we get to summer and I still can't have macaroni salad, we may have a meltdown on our hands...
  • Bananas. Yes, I'm actually missing fruit. It's shocking.
  • Booster Juice. It was starting to be a bit of a tradition for Mike and I on the weekends, to stop and get a Booster Juice. They don't make a smoothie with apples, pears, and grapefruit, even if they could make it dairy-free.

Despite the above whine (and the whines I've been giving to a lot of people in person), it does seem to be working, and I can definitely tell when I do something wrong (or at least, not as right as it should be, like the adventure with the kamut pasta last week). So I'll stick with it.

No matter how much miss (MISS) cheese.



If someone told me I couldn't have cheese anymore, they would suffer a mysterious disappearance. I know I don't like the extra stones I have accumulated since high school, but a life without cheese is not worth smaller jeans to me.
