11 Dairy-Free Meals

Why go dairy-free in your eating habits? Here’s a few common reasons …

  • Dairy sensitivity or intolerance
  • Gut healing
  • Nursing mama starting an elimination diet to help baby’s digestion, mood or skin
  • Reduce calories

I’m on the very forefront of exploring dairy-free eating and I’ve been learning a lot about alternatives and culinary styles that bend towards being dairy-free. I’m excited to share a little round up of some of my tagged recipes that I plan to try over the coming year!

  1. Everyone loves what you guys are up too. This sort of clever work and reporting!
    Keep up the very good works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my personal blogroll.

  2. The only thing that’s dumb about this site is… well you listed food but no actual recipe’s. … so really what’s the point.

    • I’m sorry you think that the site is dumb BUT if you click the name of the meal that is in blue, it actually takes you right to the recipe. 🙂
