Livin La Vida Lactose

Today’s lesson involves the importance of reading labels.  Recently I started making a morning Green Monster, which I have been loving!  Unfortunately they have not been loving me back.  Then I realized that while the protein powder I was using proclaimed itself to be lactose free, it was not dairy free.  Ugh, so frustrating!  Also, I have made the switch from milk chocolate to dark chocolate with the intention of being dairy free.  Wrong!  My beloved Dark Chocolate Dove Promises contain milk fat!  I feel like all of those promises were lies!  Manufacturers love to hide little surprises in their products.  I’m just glad that my allergy is relatively mild, so then when I do absentmindedly eat something containing dairy, I’m just uncomfortable.  My new mantra?  Always Read  The Label!
