Gastronomy & Recipes: The Struggles of Going Dairy-Free for a Month - Giveaway - Giveaways  - Gay Lea - GenerationYYZ - Toronto Blog | Toronto Lifestyle Blog | Toronto Luxury Lifestyle Blog | Lifestyle Blog | Toronto's Luxury Lifestyle Blog | Toronto Blogger | Toronto Lifestyle Blogger | Blogger

Hello all!

This will be somewhat of a different post than my usual... You see I've been on the Elimination Diet for health reasons for the last month. And let me tell you, it has been T.O.U.G.H (especially the dairy-free part). Being a Gay Lea Ambassador has been, and continues to be, a fun and truly great experience for me because, you see, I LOVE dairy products! Especially butter {Mmmm... I miss butter!}.

Growing up on my family farm, Perry's Pumpkin Patch, until the age of eight and being the daughter of a dairy farmer's daughter I think you can understand just how much I mean it when I say I LOVE all things dairy; yogurt, cheese, milk, butter, etc.

This past month, although I haven't been able to consume dairy products, it doesn't mean I haven't been dreaming about dairy products {Seriously, I've had dreams of running hand-in-hand through a meadow with a stick of butter, NO LIE!} and pinning all sorts of delicious recipes to my Pinterest boards for when I finally get to reintroduce dairy (amongst other food groups/items) back into my diet.

Here are a few of my favs from Gay Lea's Pinterest account:

 

Plus, I've really fallen in love with the Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese since being introduced to it as part of the Gay Lea Ambassador program! I cannot wait to dive into some of the Salted Caramel flavour soon. I'm also itching to try the Gay Lea Coconut Whipped Cream! If you've tried it, let me know in the comments below your thoughts and recommended uses! I'd love to hear from you!
