    So far, the coconut-based products, esp. the yogurt & coffee creamer--are working out best. Baby steps right now. I've lost almost a year to this GI stuff. And I miss cottage cheese--a daily staple!--most of all...

    Thanks for being so thoughtful. ;-)

    •  Good luck! It is not easy eating dairy free or GF (1+ / 0-)

      and we tried both over a period of two and a half years.  

      We're in the process of severely cutting back our meat consumption (well I am, and I'm the family cook, so everyone else has to eat what I make, and they're on board with it).  Lots more fish, and beans and grains combos.  This is the easiest major dietary change that I've had to make so far.  Time was, we were vegetarians (before our son was born) for years.  

      Grains and dairy are staples in our diet, though-- and cutting the gluten grains out in a country where wheat is king and it's hard to get other grain-flour mixtures to rise, is hard hard hard.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
