Glad to see you back Savingdogs!

Not dairy free. I would melt. Only Gluten free here.

Pretty much dairy free. I do use lactose free milk for my morning tea. and I've been known to eat cheese at night so nobody hears the noise it makes. |em12| |em12| |em12|

I do fine with almond or coconut milk much of the time, I have trouble in restaurants. I miss cheese, I absolutely cannot have it. Sometimes soy cheese helps. I found an almond milk concentrate which works for cream in recipes. This has sure made me need to learn to cook. Farm, I would have such a hard time being gluten free, I tried it for a month (they are trying to figure out what is wrong with my digestion/abdominal cramps). But no gluten and no dairy was a horrible combo, I hated it. They are testing me now to see if I am intolerant to sugars.

Several of us here are either gluten free or have family that is. You learn to adapt. You will find the same with dairy free. It will take some getting used to but you can do it.

I’m gluten free as well and like FF said you learn to adapt. It’s easier when you can cook at home and make several extra servings for the freezer for quick meals.

Look at vegan/vegetarian recipes for dairy free recipes. The Jazzy Vegetarian on PBS does quite a bit of dairy free recipes and has even used soy and nuts for dairy substitutes.

I find the hardest thing to replace is cheese in recipes. I have tried some dairy free cheeses but they have mostly sucked.

I can’t imagine a dairy free cheese replacement would taste that good or even have a similar texture.
