Maybe you’ve noticed some digestive issues, skin breakouts, or persistent brain fog. Whatever the reason, you’ve decided to take the plunge and try out this whole dairy-free thing. While the idea of cutting out a food group can be daunting, it’s important to think about all the things you can add in rather than just what you’re taking away. Finding nondairy recipes that are satisfying and simple is way less challenging than it may seem.
To prepare for life sans dairy, there are a few key items you might want to include on your shopping list. Nut and seed butters, especially almond butter and tahini (sesame seed butter), will be huge helpers in making dressings and sauces while also packing in healthy fats and plant-based protein. It’s also smart to have a go-to dairy milk replacement. Dairy alternatives like the Coconut and Hemp plant-based beverages from Pacific Foods are the perfect consistency to drink alone or to add to smoothies, coffee, salad dressings, and more. Plus, they're carrageenan-free, which is important when seeking out plant-based drink alternatives.
Going dairy-free is as easy as it is tasty. Read on for a healthy, delicious, and totally dairy-free menu that will keep you satisfied from morning till night.
