This week we challenge you to live 7 days without dairy! See how you feel, you might be surprised!!
Take a moment to read this article from USA Today about how intolerant most humans really are of dairy… Makes you wonder if we’re really meant to digest it at all! Please share your thoughts in comments!

Why EGGS aren’t on the list:
“Contrary to a somewhat common misconception, eggs are not considered a dairy product, which refers to the product of the mammary glands of mammals such as cows, goats, sheep and others, and the products derived thereof. The misconception that eggs are dairy products is often a result of a confusion between the terms dairy product and animal byproduct. While eggs are, indeed, produced by animals and, therefore, an animal byproduct, they are not a dairy product or a derivative of dairy products.” (Read more, here.)
