Maybe your body is trying to tell you something and it is time for you to listen.

Many people cannot digest dairy. Dairy is not for humans, it is a food nature intends for a baby of the specific species it is made for (in this case, calves). So it is no surprise that your body is rejecting this unnatural food.

Dairy is behind many common ailments. There are so many great alternatives now to dairy, so many more than 20 years ago, that there is no reason to consume dairy.

Instead of cow's milk, consider soy, almond (Almond Breeze rocks), rice, or nut milk. Instead of sour cream, use Tofutti Better than Sour Cream. Instead of Cream cheese use the same brand tofutti creme cheeze. I use these products only occasionally as they are high in fat but sometimes you want sour cream on your cabbage rolls. Instead of ice cream try one of the non-dairy desserts on the market such as SoDelicious, they taste exactly like their dairy counterpart without the cholesterol and problems of dairy. Instead of cheese you can use Follow Your Heart vegan cheese, which is acceptable, or you can learn to get "off" cheese by making your own "cheezy" substitutes using nutritional yeast. Far more powerful in nutrition, low in fat, zero cholesterol and zero lactose.

Cheese is a highly addictive food that is full of saturated fat and cholesterol, not to mention all the undesirable things put in cow's milk -- antibiotics and bovine growth hormone, to mention just two. Many vegans have found that eliminating cheese is not easy but once they get past a certain point it becomes second nature and they find other delicious and far healthier foods to take the place of cheese. Such as the delicious subs you can make, crock cheeze is an example, from Jo Stepaniak's Vegan Vittles; or even using avocado in sandwiches in place of cheese. There are many recipes for cheezy sauces that even kids like, I use one of Bryanna's -- Melty Pizza Cheeze -- and my friend's daughter always asks for it when she comes over.

Cheese is one of those things you swear you can't live without but once you get away from it and some time passes it will be something you are glad you deleted from your diet.
