Note, it was my first time there.
Steve;
I'm finding those types of people/service/attitude more and more as I move away from the "mainstream consumerism" and back to more of the basic down home, grown/made localism(sp). I know that sounds corny, and I do find some "big" companies going out of the there way to provide killer service, but nothing beats spending your money or time with local folks that truly appreciate it. Talk about a warm and fuzzy feeling, but I'm preaching to the choir, the work you do with disadvantage youth must give you tremendous satisfaction.

I recently decided to cut coffee out of my diet because for a while I was doing the whole coffee + non whipped heavy cream as per Lights Out. I'm think I'm not quite lactose intolerant but I am lactose sensitive. Butter, whey, and a little cheese is usually ok, but heavy cream, ice cream, milk makes me really gassy (when I'm awake and asleep so my wife says).

As a side note I'm Chinese and only recently read some stuff claiming that Asian's are typically lactose intolerant/sensitive and that is when I decided to cut the coffee + cream out to do my own little experiment. (I can't stand coffee black). It's been about 2 months now and keep an eye on what dairy I put in me.

I once again started a bit of raw/sometimes grass fed milk plain yogurt about a week or two ago. Now I realize I am all mucousy and wonder if its related t the dairy or something else.

I did order a 1/2 gallon of raw goats milk to make my own yogurt. Will try and see.

Gave up dairy about 14/15 years ago on a dare for a week which turned me in to a vegetarian for 14 yrs!! Thats been gone for 1.5 yrs bu stayed without the dairy! So I thought maybe I would give it a try. Just easy to eat a yogurt on the go!!

Dan,
If you just have a minor cold, believe it or not, that could very well be your body getting rid of all the mucousy junk sitting around in your system. Phlegm/mucous isn't just in our sinuses/nose.

Definitely give the no dairy thing a couple of weeks more after your cold is gone.

Serena,

I will put money on that mucous is all related to dairy. Dit the dairy and see what happens....the only way to find out. But I have the exact same issue....too much dairy get the mucous going. Not pleasant.

Here's a nice page talking about dairy and phlegm in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

So what's a good milk alternative- something that you will get your protein and fat from, that's sold lots of places and isn't that pricey?
I did a quart of milk yesterday, and it pushed me over the mucus limit, but I'm ata loss for an easy replacement.
If you say soy milk, you're asking for nard shots.

Coconut milk (high in fat/not so protein)

John,
Maybe kefir will fit the bill you're looking for.

The culturing makes it produces less phlegm, it also reduces the sugars somewhat. It's basically thin yogurt with more health benefits.

It has even become available at Trader Joe's recently, even if it is at 1% milkfat (not whole). A quart goes for $2-something, if I remember correctly. Organic whole milk kefir is available under the Lifeway brand, places like Whole Foods carry that brand for sure.

There's a start, maybe it will help.
