about the ice cream...it was vanilla flavor (yuk) but I couldn't have any of the other flavors. Sometimes I'd put a special berry juice with it and make a milk-shake-like thing that I'd eat with a spoon. I had to do the liquid diet because of a partial obstruction in my bowel (caused by Lyme inflammation) anyway, so I turned it into a treatment by using the meal replacement mix (the free amino acids are healing to the gut lining, especially the L-Glutamine). I couldn't even eat mashed potatoes without them getting stuck (not a fun experience...very, very painful). The partial obstruction went away while I was on the liquid diet. I have unfortunately since discovered that dairy proteins cause problems for me too, so have had to give up the ice cream & cheese (never did care much for drinking milk).
