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 favorite dairy-free recipes.
