Hermiones Mom's Journal, 22 September 2016

I was so happy with dinner tonight -- my crustless quiche. I always forget how good and how easy it is to make. And now there are leftovers to eat tomorrow. Hooray.

I did a big experiment today: Both Whole Foods and Jewel have stopped carrying my lactose-free yogurt except in plain (which I use for dressings, sauces and baking) and vanilla, which I don't care for. So now I have to try out whether or not I can eat a good quality yogurt that is not officially lactose-free. The gastroenterologist told me that there's no predicting -- in theory, live culture yogurt would not have lactose because the culture bacteria eat it all up. But he says not everyone of his patients can tolerate regular yogurt. I got the Siggi's 0% fat, and I was astonished at the thick, sour cream-like texture. It's delicious. I ate a whole container (only 120 calories), and now I guess I'll know tomorrow if I can eat it or not. I hope so. It's really tasty.

Hope it works for you! I love yogurt and lately i drink about a quart or so of kefir a week and my insides are so happy. No GI distress for weeks and weeks!

Thanks for the support folks. I did have a little trouble early this evening, just slightly more than 24 hours after eating the yogurt -- the 24 hour later reaction is pretty typical for me -- but it wasn't too bad. I don't think I would eat that yogurt every day, but perhaps I can get away with it a couple times a week. Meanwhile, I found my lactose-free yogurt at Marianos, so at least I have an alternative!
