Decreasing my dependence on allergy medication



It wasn't instant, but I'm so happy to report that I'm going through my third allergy season without suffering and without meds!

What did I do?
I stopped eating dairy and increased the amount of veggies at each meal.

Why?

How did I do it?
In February and March of 2012 I weened myself off of dairy products, not by eating non-dairy, but by adding whole foods.  I replaced 2% milk with Almond Milk, made rice pudding with coconut milk.  Instead of ice cream I eat fruit for dessert and put Almond Milk in my occasional cup of decaf or when I make a tea latte.  I also stopped putting cheese on everything.
