Improve your health, lifestyle and diet nutrition with Dairy-Free Diet.
Planning your milk-free meals ahead of time can help make the transition to a dairy-free lifestyle that much easier. When you plan your menus, look for ways to add dairy-free variations in flavor, texture, color, and food temperature (hot and cold) to each meal.
- Oatmeal (not the instant kind) with raisins, cinnamon and sugar
- Eggs (any style where you don’t add milk; fry in oil, not butter) with bacon (not sausage)
- Calcium-enriched orange juice, black tea or coffee
- Cheerios or any other milk-free cereal, either dry or with juice added (Hey, my family likes them that way …)
- Sliced meat (such as roast beef or turkey breast; no processed meats unless marked Kosher) on sourdough bread with real mayonnaise or mustard. Add lettuce and mango chutney for some pizzaz. NOTE: If you are dealing with an anaphylactic reaction, ask at the deli counter whether the slicing machine is also used for cheese. There may be a cross-contamination risk, in which case you should do your slicing at home AND discard the first slice.
- Salad made with Starkist tuna packed in water. Add pickle relish and real mayonaisse. Serve plain or on sourdough bread.
- Peanut butter and jelly on sourdough
- Baked fish with honey and mustard spread over the top
- Lambchops, broiled and served with mint jelly
- Steamed vegetables served plain or with home-made vinagraite
- Roasted or baked potatoes
