Dairy Free Alternatives

If you're like us and don't eat dairy (at least around the kiddos), you've probably struggled with dairy free alternatives.  The grocery store is packed with highly processed dairy free alternatives from nut milks to soy cheese.  These may be dairy free, but they're not whole foods based and certainly not healthy.

When we began our dairy free adventure, I realized I would need to come up with our own alternatives to dairy products if I wanted to give my kids nourishing options.  I tried tons of recipes and definitely threw away some food.  Thankfully I've got some staples down now and experimenting is a little more fun.

Today over at Modern Alternative Kitchen, I'm discussing dairy allergies and intolerances and the awesome food you can create without dairy!  I've got recipe links for dairy free staples like milk, sour cream, yogurt, etc.  I'm also sharing some tips for cooking dairy free and some great ways to get some dairy satisfaction with other ingredients.  Hop on over and check it out!

  1. Dairy was the first thing to go in our house, and it's usually the toughest to stick with. I'm headed over to check out your alternative's cause I haven't gotten them down yet.
