I make it a point to never restrict myself when it comes to resolutions every year. I find that if I tell myself that I can’t have something, I end up craving it more than ever and then feel guilty when I give in to those cravings. That’s why most of my resolutions included the word “more“. MORE whole grains and vegetables, MORE hiking, MORE monstas, etc. This way, I feel great when I succeed and get tons of health benefits. Win win!
However… there is one restriction I’m giving myself for the month of January. NO DAIRY!
Oh Paciugo, I’ll miss you so!
Don’t worry, I’m not actually bailing on them – they have plenty of non-dairy options!
The reason I’m banning dairy is because I find that my skin becomes porcelain when I keep milk products out of my diet. Every time I ditch dairy, my skin thanks me, but I find some excuse (GELATO, GELATO, GELATO) to go back, hoping that this time will be different. This is the final test – if I succeed, I will officially say goodbye to dairy forever, which will probably be better in the end anyway since I’ll be ridding my body of all those added hormones. Yuck.
On a little more splurge-y note, we celebrated my wonderful mom’s birthday this week! As a final goodbye to the holiday season, we went to Wood Ranch. Meat ensued.
I think I’ve officially fulfilled my barbeque craving.
At least for this next month 🙂
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOMMEEEEEEEEE!
What would be the most difficult food for you to give up?
Life is going to be TORTURE without gelato!

This would be a tough one for me. Cheese, ice cream and frozen yogurt would be tough for me to live without. But I'd do it if it helped my skin!
oh dear, that's gonna be tough! i know how much you love that gelato!
I couldn't go without cheese…i love everything from Asiago to Velveeta (gasp) 😉
Velveeta is not cheese! And yes, I love it too 🙂
You should try Coconut Bliss brand ice "cream". It's not cheap, but ya know… for a treat, it's worth it.
I've had their ice cream sandwiches. TO DIE FOR!!!
