Nikki ~ I have never been Lactose Intollerant, but in August I had a baby. After 10 weeks of what I thought was colic, she was diagnosed with a Milk Soy Protein Intolerance. My choices were to put her on a special pricey formula or change my diet. I do not regret changing my diet one bit! I feel better about myself, and the baby, now 6 months old has never been happier! The crying, screaming, and sleepless nights ended after I eliminated diary- the whole family and I are making the switch! My acne has subsided greatly, I have more energy, the weight is falling off with ease, I feel better. Its amazing the difference it has made in our lives. My 3 year old drinks Almond milk regularly, and I can't believe how easy the lifestyle swap was! Its been an amazing discovery and a fun journey so far.
