Cheese and Vegestables

so i was able to replace the cows milk with soy milk, rice milk, goats milk, almond milk, etc but what i cant get over is cheese...i love cheese and now i find myself eating goat cheese but cant eat the others. Is cheese really that bad?

hm. Also, when i didnt have CD i wasnt aware of things like a gluteen free menu, asking for soy milk at a starbucks for your drink, etc...So my question is...do a lot of restaurant offer goat cheese/dairy-free cheese or something, i dont know, for cheese when you order off the menu or its something that just doesnt exist and u just gotta learn to deal with it?

also, veggies. How bad it lettuce? I usually eat it with a burger or a ceasear salad, thats about it.

All depends on the person. Cheese does not bother me, but I can't deal with Milk or Ice Cream.

I don't digest lettuce to well but it does not really bother me. I was a veggi for a majority of my life with Crohn's and did really well in that time.

Cheese doesn't bother me either....Most salad green don't cause me pain, but they preetty much don't digest either.
Instead of hiding in the darkness of a grey cloud, why not look for the silver lining?

I seem to be able to eat both well - for the most part. Every so often I might have problems, but then I'm left wondering if maybe it was something else I ate (ha - anyone else know what I'm saying here?). Everyone is different, you kind of have to "test" for yourself - but the results can change according to the activity of your disease at the moment - this is what I have found (and is frustrating!).

I don't know about the dairy substitutes at restaurants. You could always ask and see.

so what if you eat cheese and nothing happens? the gastro told me even if you eat a few times and nothing happens, you are "feeding the monster" and are setting myself up for a possible flare in the future...like adding a drop to a glass...nothing happens until eventually fills up and spills.

so my question is. even if it doesnt do you bad, its better to fully avoid it right? or not?

I agree with karma. I expect that sometimes we get instant reactions. However I don't seem to have this to anything in particular. But, I do wonder if some of the 'bad' stuff I eat will be causing inflamation/damage, even if I don't necessarily feel it at the time.
