Lactose Free Yogurt

I've had lots of stuff going on after work this week! I had to catch up on grocery store and Target runs after failing to do both over the weekend.

On Monday, I got my eyes checked and the doc said that I must be eating my veggies because my prescription hadn't changed. Hooray! Now I can get new eyeglasses and hopefully I'll find some I like this weekend.

After my appointment, I met Craig at Outback Steakhouse and this is the only the second time either of us had been to that restaurant. Thanks to a suggestion from Karis, I got this free steak dinner coupon in the mail and Craig was able to use it for his dinner.


He got a wood fired steak and garlic mashed potatoes. He enjoyed the meal and took half of it home.

I had a small portion of a chicken quesadilla. It was yummy and greasy--had bacon on it and I dipped it in the honey mustard sauce it came with. For someone like me, it was hard to find an item on the menu that really appealed to me. This was the best I could come up with.


Last night, I went to Bodyflow with Angie and it was the second week of the new release. I liked the old one better, but class was still excellent. My abs hurt today and that is a good thing! I guess I liked the old music better too.

I purchased some Green Valley Organics blueberry lactose free yogurt while at Whole Foods a couple of weekends ago. I tried it for lunch today and was so happy to find the taste pleasant and the texture good too. Hooray!



I definitely will be purchasing more of their products. I really love yogurt so if I do end up having a lactose intolerance, I'll be eating this instead of traditional yogurt. For those of you wondering about the lactose intolerance situation--after my one week test, I can't be sure I am lactose intolerant. After my EGD and colonoscopy in two weeks, I'll ask for a hydrogen breath test to confirm.

Lunch today was homemade egg salad on top of spinach, the lactose free yogurt and some cucumber slices with Penzey's Mural of Spice.


For dinner the last two nights, I've been making quinoa with chickpeas and Mmmm sauce. I seem to go through phases with the Mmmm sauce and will want it all week and then get sick of it.

That's all for now...two more days of the work week! Woot woot!


  1. Your dinner looks really really good. I need to find the lactose free yogurt. Does it taste any good? Or is it horrible? Enjoy your day dear. :)

  2. I'm really missing out; I still haven't tried Mmm sauce! I know what you mean about Outback. Luckily, I like steak, but everything else is hit or miss - even the steak can come out a bit buttery.

  3. I'm not a huge fan of Outback, but my husband loves it. Once upon a time I used to get the cheddar/bacon fries and a salad and that was my meal. Oh, how times have changed!!!

  4. It tasted great! If you told me it was just a normal yogurt, I wouldn't have known any different. Thanks for your comment!
