Let's see how long this lasts...now, just to be clear, I am cuttin out dairy piece by piece for health reasons first then because I love cows.
So, as of today, I have been 4 days without cheese, I have been using Galaxy Veggie Shreds and have found that it melts beautifully and I can even eat it straight out of the bag. I think I actually prefer this to Daiya brand.
I have never been a huge milk drinker anyway, so nixxing that was no problem at all. I have found a new milk that I love though, coconut milk!! I always thought I hated coconut until I had fresh in a cookie and some sweetened coconut milk. OMG yum!!
The hard part for me will be ice cream and yogurt. I haven't tried alot of non-dairy ice creams as they are really expensive, but I haven't found a yogurt sub that I like the flavor of. Cutting cottage cheese came when I realized everytime I ate my I got terrible stomach cramps. My body is telling me i am not meant to consume animal products. LOL
So, have any of you cut dairy from your diet? Have you noticed a difference in how you feel? What dairy subs are your favorite??
Welcome to Veg'n in the 'Burbs!
It seems you have stumbled onto the companion blog to Homesteadin' in the 'burbs. Congratulations! Here you will find a treasure trove of vegetarian and vegan recipes that my family loves! I may even throw in some frugal shopping tips if you are good *wink* So pull up a seat, have a cup of coffee and enjoy!
I also want to mention that we do not strictly eat vegetarian/vegan. We work these in as often as possible but we do eat meat...we are in the process of pinning down local organic meats and buy from halal markets or eat wild game. All recipes are intended to be vegetarian but are meat optional.
