Trade off

So T is having the expected intestinal reaction to the antibiotics for his sinus infection. One way to alleviate this: eat yogurt with acidophilus (a healthy probiotic.) Yogurt = dairy.

So I stood in front of the refrigerator, pondering...do I give him some yogurt to help his intestines while he's on this medicine, or do I let him suffer through more discomfort so he can stay on this diet?

Casein (dairy) can be out of the body/digestive system in 3 days.

Decision made. So we're off the diet for a while.

What about soy yogurt? Does that have the acidopholus in it? No dairy there.
