Bright-eyed and bushy tailed on a Monday? Who am I trying to kid! A day without dairy products is probably one of the hardest things I’ve done
so far this month.
Breakfast without butter, tea without milk and not even the slightest nibble of cheese has been difficult. An evening without wine is easy, but ask me again on Friday when I’m slurping (real) Ribena from a wine glass.
I woke up really hungry this morning, realised what I had, or rather didn’t have, in store and pressed the snooze button. Oh the shame of it. By 11am I was thinking about lunch; salad with walnuts and blue cheese, or salad with goats cheese, or anything with cheese and then it hit me, cheese is out for the week.
I’m obviously not cut out for this health living lark.
My main indulgence throughout the day is tea, and I’ve never drunk tea with soya milk in it instead of milk before; it’s chalky, sweet and slightly sickly. I’m not really selling this one am I?
Ok, ok, it’s not all bad, my skin feels better already and I do feel that my breathing is improved without the dairy. Let’s see how I feel about this tomorrow….
