Many of us have jumped on the dairy-free recipes train with the Done with Dairy Toolkit. Well done, bravo!
As a result of the challenge, I’ve received a bunch of questions about goat dairy and the potential role it can play in the lives of folks that are sensitive to lactose. So today, I’m giving you the what, where, when, why and how of goat dairy so that you can make an educated decision on whether or not goat dairy may be right for you.
If your decision is a big fat, “yes”… well, I have 4 NEW goat cheese recipes that you can use to kick start your goat dairy journey.
And if your decision is a big fat, “no”… I give you dairy-free alternatives so that you can still rock them recipes!
How to decide if goat dairy is right for you
You’ve got the questions and I have the answers… hopefully. Here are three posts that I’ve written about goat dairy to help you decide if it’s right for you:
And below are 4 new goat cheese recipes that I shared with Happy Days Dairies last month.
Don’t worry… there are dairy-free substitutions that accompany each one.
Baked Blueberry Spread – A gooey goat cheese spread with fresh blueberries and a touch of sugar. Perfect served with crackers, cookies or a warm piece of toast.
Dairy-free alternative: use 150 grams of my vegan cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of non-dairy milk.
Savory Cheese Muffins – A great way to start off the day or served as a side to any simple weekday meal.
Dairy-free alternative: stuff each muffin with a mound of hummus!
Mediterranean Veggie Dip – This healthy dip will be a hit in your household. Drop spoonful’s of the dip in jars, top with veggie sticks and serve as a healthy afternoon snack.
Dairy-free alternative: use 1/2 cup of dairy-free yogurt.
Roasted Butternut Squash Spaghettini - A meatless dish of roasted butternut squash, pumpkin seeds and feta.
Dairy-free alternative: use 2 cups of cooked chickpeas and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
I’d love to hear from you…
Do you do your research before you change up things in your diet?
Or, do you let your body be your guide and just jump into things that feel right?
