Sweetie, It's Not You—It's Cheese
OK, we’re only telling you this because we ❤ you: You’re in a sucky relationship, and you need to end it. Yep, it’s time for you to dump dairy products for good! Dairy consumption is directly linked to heart disease, cancer, and strokes. It’s also the number one source of allergies and is linked to constipation, obesity, and acne. C’mon, we both know you deserve better!
OK, we get it: Breakups can be scary—you might feel like the world is coming to an end and that there’s no way you’ll be able to carry on without dairy products. But in the end, you’ll come out like a total champ and realize it was for the best! Check out our top five tips to help you kick dairy products to the curb in no time!
Remember—you deserve better!
Just like toxic relationships, consuming products made from cow’s milk isn’t any good for you and could make you feel sick. Milk products are loaded with artery-clogging saturated fat and cholesterol and crawling with bacteria—YUCK! Make yourself a priority and say, “Bye, bye!” to dairy products once and for all!
Get a REBOUND.
Think you’ll miss cheese and other dairy products? Think again! There are many vegan milk-free products out there to help you get over your breakup. Rebound with some of our faves—like Daiya Cheese, WholeSoy Yogurt, and Almond Breeze’s Chocolate Milk. You’ll be asking, “Dairy who?” in no time!
Rant with friends.
Tell your friends why you broke up with dairy products and why they should, too! Cows used for their milk are repeatedly impregnated, drugged, mutilated without painkillers, and then killed—it’s not an industry that you want your friends to support, right?
Get out and try new things!
Just because you and dairy products broke up doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the things you love. All you need to do is make a few small changes—get the sorbet flavor when going out for froyo, order your veggie burrito with extra guac and pico de gallo instead of cheese and sour cream, and make your favorite Starbucks drink vegan by asking for soy milk!
Ice cream and chocolate.
Let’s face it: These two are the best cure for any breakup, and guess what? You can find vegan ice cream and vegan chocolate at almost every grocery store nowadays (you can even make your own)! Grab a spoon and try So Delicious’ Chocolate Peanut Butter and Purely Decadent’s Cookie Dough ice cream. You can thank us later!
