Whether it’s allergy, sensitivity, environmental or for ethical reasons, more and more people are choosing a dairy free life style. Regardless of why you’re avoiding dairy, we thought we’d share some survival tips for beginners to help you through your transition to dairy free living.

The aim of this blog is to help you find all the things you should know when starting out on this dairy free journey, this blog will discuss the below points:

  • Tips to help you go dairy free
  • Words to avoid
  • Dairy Substitutes

We’ve gathered 5 top tips to help you go dairy free:

  1. Research. You won’t just wake up knowing what to do, so we highly recommend researching how to cook all your favourite ‘dairy free’ dishes and also research what best dairy alternatives are. This step should be your first step.
  2. Play. Don’t give up what you love, experiment with a variety of new and known dairy free foods. Make it a habit to try at least one “new” food each week. If you’re crazy for ice-cream check out some dairy free frozen desserts such as “soy ice-cream” and “coconut ice-cream”.
  3. Get in the kitchen. Celebrate the art of substitution by cooking and trying different methods for preparing new and familiar food. Such as creamy macaroni with ‘cashew cheese’ instead of cheese.
  4. Explore. Dine out and taste test a whole variety of dairy free foods at dietary specific restaurants (vegan cafes and dairy free restaurants). By doing so, you can gather idea’s and discover different types of dairy free dishes. These can than lead you to discover dairy free-recipes that you can find online and make yourself. 
  5. Read. Learn what you should and should not be consuming by reading product labels. You probably know things such as milk and butter but what about casein or koumiss? Later we will share a list of hidden sources of dairy.

Unfortunately, spotting dairy on the ingredient list isn’t as easy as you think. There are many names that you should avoid in an ingredient list and it can be difficult for a beginner. So, we’ve created a list of words that contains dairy:

Acidophilus Milk
 

Ammonium Caseinate
 

Butter
 

Butter Fat
 

Caseinates

Milk

Curds

Goat Milk
 

Hydrolyzed

Lastly, being dairy free doesn’t mean you need to give up all kinds of baked sweets, comfort food and yummy desserts. Instead of using milks, cream, butter, cheese and ice-cream you can substitute these for dairy free options. Below we have created a ‘Dairy Free Cheat Sheet’ to help you get started...

Free living is something that people can do even on custom dissertations and I think that they need to enjoy it. Not everyone can enjoy it and we need to see the benefits of it.
