Yoga+Music {notquite365} Hitchhike to Rhome by Old 97’s – Recipe Edition!

It’s Tuesday Wednesday and that means the Recipe Edition!


Since our last go round with the Recipe Edition, I’ve been poked 32 times with potential allergens and *surprise*I’m highly allergic to 29! Granted most of these are what allergists refer to as “inhalant” – things in the air – which means I have really, really bad hay fever.

After much arm twisting and doctor doubts, also I was able to get tested for two specific foods – wheat and milk.

One of my new allergies is…. wait for it…. my beloved dairy.

So now I’m reading books with awesome titles like The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Dairy-Free Eating and The Everyday Dairy-Free Cookbook.

Today’s recipe is one I’ve been starting my day with.


Almond Honey Tea

adapted from The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Dairy-Free Eating


1/2 cup filtered water

1/2 almond milk {my favorite is Pacific Natural Foods}

1 TBS local, organic honey

1 black tea of your choice {totally loving earl grey and english breakfast these days}


1. water and almond milk into a small saucepan

2. high heat until almost boiling, remove from heat

3. add tea bag and steep 3-4 minutes

4. pour into mug, stir in honey

5. stop wishing alternative milks had the same texture as cow’s milk


What about you? What would you do if you just found out your favorite food is making you sick?

Do you have any recipes or favorite {dairy free} foods to share?

  1. oh, and have you tried silk almond milk in the dairy (sorry) case? it’s super thick, almost too thick so sometimes i thin it out with water. it’s amazing in the date smoothie.

  2. i’m sorry to say that i can relate to your sitch more than i wish i could. the upshot, as we’ve discussed, is the chance not to feel like crap all the time. imagine that! there is life after allergies to one’s favorite foods, and a delicious life at that. it just takes a little adjusting of head and palate. and a bit of whining.

  3. I would cry and whine. Then I would rouse myself and learn to do without. (I suspect the crying would go on for a while though.)

    If you see Coconut Bliss ice cream, it’s awfully good. I discovered it when I was doing an anti-inflammatory diet to see what foods were troublesome and couldn’t eat dairy or sugar (or much of anything else). It’s made with coconut milk and is ever so good.

    • @elizabeth: while i haven’t actually cried, {yet} i’ve done my fair share of whining. i’m still kind of in shock to be honest. and now that i’m looking at the labels of everything before i eat it, i’ve been surprised where dairy hides: naan contains yogurt, tootsie rolls have dried milk, milk chocolate contains MILK – who knew????? anyway, thank you for understanding the need to wallow before acceptance. i appreciate your support.

      i have already experienced the creamy deliciousness of coconut bliss ice cream. they absolutely got the name correct on this one. thanks for the suggestion – keep them coming!
