New Plan: Day 2

We made it through the first day! Last night I did our "big" shopping trip and it took a bit longer than normal since I was reading labels and such. I did manage to find a cheaper butter than I had found at the organic store, but the commissary still didn't have any Vegan cheese. They had Veggie Slices, but those still have casein in them. I did come home in time to catch hubby giving Tyler a cookie that had milk in it, but since it had been promised for cleaning his room I let it slide. I figured that since we were on the first day it probably wouldn't make that big of a difference.

Tyler hasn't complained about having to use rice milk on his cereal, but he didn't care for it this morning when I gave him a little to take with his acidophiles. I don't know if he'll get use to the flavor or if he just won't care to drink it straight. I also bought almond milk the other day so we'll see if he favors one over the other. The commissary does have rice milk for about $.30 cheaper than the organic store, so if he doesn't care for either one then I'll just buy the rice milk at the commissary. I might try soy but I'm a little hesitant of it. I've read a few things about soy that makes me shy away from using it in large quantities but now I don't remember what it was exactly that the article said. Does anyone know?

All I remember is that it's not good for boys in high quantities. I remember it being something hormonal related but nothing else.

Praying for you guys!

I prefer the almond, the rice has a bit of a grity after taste to it :)

me again, soy, has estrogen mimickers and can interfere with hormone levels.

Thanks! Do you know anything about the rice ice cream tastes?

Soy is basically a plant form of estrogen, so large quantities of it aren't really good for anyone.


Just found that link tonight, and have only glanced at the research portion. Worth looking more deeply into, anyway.

Kim, I have never tried the rice ice cream so I don't have an answer. Sorry.
