In all of my years of cooking for clients (and myself), the most difficult and common challenge I have found is finding good dairy substitutes. Though many of my clients have problems of one type or another with dairy products, I still want to make them delicious meals that they will love. Even those little “add-ons” can be a problem and are hard to bypass or substitute in a dish that needs the parmesan on the pasta or the dollop of sour cream on the tostada.
Do you try to limit or avoid dairy? Should you be dairy-free? I’m not the one to decide that for you. There are plenty of reasons to give it up, but there are also good reasons for some to keep it in their diet. Dr. Bailey has pointed out that dairy is often a culprit in acne. She has also found that cow dairy foods cause inflammation in her otherwise pain-free but arthritic joints.
If you would like to explore that topic for your life and health, I highly recommend starting with my movie curriculum post. You will find careful and thoughtful considerations to make, many of them thoroughly and scientifically supported in the movies and books I recommended.
Here are some of the ways I substitute yummy non-dairy foods in dishes in which we want dairy:
As I always say, I will never tell you what you should eat, only how to cook something to maximize its nutritional benefit.
