Shopping for a lactose free diet

Tonight, I went grocery shopping with a lactose free diet in mind. I’ll probably start my week long experiment tomorrow.

I found myself reading labels more, even though I mostly shopped the perimeter of the store. When buying sushi, I saw milk on the label and knew that I wouldn’t be able to eat the sushi rolls as leftovers for lunch tomorrow. So, I read other labels and found the vegetarian version (which I prefer anyway) didn’t have any milk.

With a $1.00 off coupon, which was doubled, I got this milk for about $1.50. Not bad. I am not the biggest fan of soy milk, but I figured I would try this kind over the next week because it has 8 grams of protein per serving.

I had a glass of it with my dinner and it wasn’t too bad.

I also picked up two types of store brand almond milk: original and vanilla. I figured the vanilla might be good in my coffee. I prefer almond milk over other dairy alternative milks.

I enjoyed the sushi for dinner with some soy sauce and wasabi. I love wasabi, as long as it is in moderation.

I found out that sushi is the perfect pre-gym dinner. It wasn’t heavy in my stomach and didn’t make me feel sick while I worked out. I had to get to the gym right after eating as the night was flying by. I just lifted a full circuit of weights and biked while reading the September issue of Health magazine.

There, I managed to fit in a shorter blog post and still have time to read before bed! Night!
