i never, ever, thought i would one day make a conscious, well-thought out decision to go dairy-free.
there are two reasons for this.
1: i love milk.
2: i love cheese.
i could write lengthy paragraphs explaining and expressing my passion for both milk and cheese. i could. but i will try to keep it short. i like short sentences and short thoughts after all. i doubt i have gone a day in my life without milk. this is easy to predict because i haven't gone a day in my (solid-eating) life without cereal and let's be honest - cereal just doesn't taste the same without milk. once when i was living aboard i *ran out* of milk and had to have cornflakes with water. it wasn't an enjoyable moment for me. i went out and bought milk immediately afterwards. as for cheese - well, it's my staple. it's my go-to snack. in fact, i don't snack on anything really except for cheese.
*i didn't run out - i would NEVER run out of milk - my flatmate drank it*
anyway - today is day one of going dairy-free.
i'm not doing it for me. i'm doing it for my son.
