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?
