Take the medicine with the gelatin capsules.

All yogurt does not contain gelatin, but if all you can find has gelatin, then you either make your own or use a probiotic supplement - the best of these is blood type specific (Type B link):

I am not saying you need to do this.

But one approach to this is to repack the medications in vegetable cellulose capsules:

Jazmine, making yogurt is easy, but if you don't want to do that, you're going to have to look a little harder to find healthy versions of the foods that are healthy for you.  You may need to change your patterns and step outside of your comfort zone.  Changing the way you eat won't be easy if you continue doing things the way you have always done them.

Try out different stores and learn which ones have what you want.  Shop in natural food stores for some items that you can't get in the supermarkets.  Drive a little farther if you have to, and stock up. Don't get discouraged.    Once you get some new systems in place, it will get easier and easier.  It's the transitions that can be the most frustrating.

Keep reading the labels.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I wouldn't worry about the amount of gelatin in the pills you need to take. It  "doesn't count" towards BTD at all. Perhaps someday you'll be healthy enough to stop taking the medication, but until that time, just take the meds you need without worry.

Keep looking for gelatin-free yogurt. It DOES exist. Maybe the particular store you were looking in doesn't carry it, and maybe your favorite brand is all made with gelatin- but keep looking, perhaps in health food stores rather than supermarkets. Most commercial yogurts are so sugary as to be unhealthy anyway. What you want to do is get your body used to less sweet foods. Best is to buy unsweetened yogurt and add your own honey or maple syrup to it.
