I have skin allergies that clear up when I cut out dairy, but that alone has not been enough incentive for me to change my ways in the long-term. Cheese lures me back, every time. I don’t know if that happens to you, too, but when something is forbidden, I want it all the more, so labeling cheese (and all dairy) as bad has not worked for me...Behaviorally, I know it’s much easier to replace dairy-laden meals with delicious dairy-free meals. I’ve watched my husband go from eating an animal protein with every meal to eating about 70% vegetarian in this way without him even knowing. Replacing meals is less noticeable than cutting out an entire food group. When I saw Eat Dairy Free listed on Netgalley, I knew it would fit right in with my plans to replace some meals. BenBella published cookbooks are always organized beautifully with color pictures of every recipe, cleanly and neatly organized recipes, and Eat Dairy Free was no exception. Alisa Fleming covers the basics, such as making your own nut milks and using canned coconut milk, which I’m already a huge fan of both. I loved the author’s use of whole foods/unprocessed ingredients in most recipes. While the recipes are not solely plant-based or vegetarian, there are many, many that fit those specs, and most of the others could be easily modified. A few recipes I flagged to make include Vanilla Cream Scones made with coconut milk (cannot wait!), Curried Cauliflower and Peas, Shepherd’s Pie with cauliflower topping, Black Bean Burgers (this recipe has her own unique spin), a dairy free alfredo sauce with coconut cream AND cashew cream (I’ve made this many times with cashews and YUM), a Moroccan Skillet full of veggies, and Snicker-dough-dles, which are a cookie with a cookie dough-like center. I feel like I’m armed with some new things to try in the kitchen to cut back on our dairy, and I’m inspired by all the new ideas and combinations! Thanks to Alisa Fleming, BenBella Books, and Netgalley, for the copy to read and review.

    For years now I have suffered from stomach pains, bloating and other less than desirable symptoms. I am no longer able to work because of them. This has resulted in me having to go through numerous tests, medicine and, in particular, pain relief which I realise is having no impact on the actual illness itself, all it is doing is masking over the symptoms. At the same time the NHS is becoming a liability and more and more GP's are no longer interested in the job of helping their patients - so, it For years now I have suffered from stomach pains, bloating and other less than desirable symptoms. I am no longer able to work because of them. This has resulted in me having to go through numerous tests, medicine and, in particular, pain relief which I realise is having no impact on the actual illness itself, all it is doing is masking over the symptoms. At the same time the NHS is becoming a liability and more and more GP's are no longer interested in the job of helping their patients - so, it is time to make some changes myself in the hope that they will benefit me in some way. That's where this book comes in! Even if it doesn't reduce my stomach issues, I feel I will still gain many health benefits from cutting out dairy produce. I am so grateful that these type of books exist as I would have no idea where to start with creating recipes and suchlike, having been a dairy consumer for 30 years. I know that I will refer to this to guide me when I begin the journey of changing my diet in a drastic way. The recipes sound absolutely delicious, this puts me at ease and reassures me that you can still eat tasty food without milk, cheese, butter etc. There are a number of dietary experts that claim that eating dairy free is better for you and I guess it is time to see whether there really is something in those assertions. I cannot wait to feel the difference! A huge thank you to Alisa Fleming, BenBella and NetGalley for the opportunity to review a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and impartial review.

    This is a great follow-up to the author's original Go Dairy Free cookbook from way back, modernized with color photos for every recipe and lots of new recipes reflecting our modern options. The beginning goes into a tutorial on why people go dairy free and how to do it.

The beginning goes into a tutorial on why people go dairy free and how to do it. There are ten recipe chapters of everything from drinks to snacks to different cuisines, plus how to make a lot of basics. Lots of these are refreshingly simple, like how to make a 1-minute non-dairy milk with whatever nut or grain you choose (cashews, oats, etc.) with optional flavorings. Many of the recipes are naturally dairy free so it's debatable if you need them in a dairy-free cookbook. Some would argue that it shows you all your options, while others argue that there's no need to have so many recipes that you could just as easily find in a regular cookbook like fruit salad or BBQ meat. There are lots of options for people on special diets, and a chart at the start of each chapter shows which recipes are egg free, vegan, gluten free, etc. Almost all of the recipes are soy free. Nutritional yeast is used often for cheesy flavors. You don't have to buy a lot of processed imitation foods like vegan margarine and cheese, which I appreciate. Nutritional information is not provided. The strengths of this book are the color photos for every recipe, the variety of recipes, the information for those who are new to dairy free living and its accommodation for so many diets. I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for review.

The book is pretty heavy on Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or nutritional yeast, which isn't a great option for folks with dysregulated digestion who are reducing their yeast exposure. I'm sure a savvy cook could make some substitutions for flavor but folks just starting out may struggle. I did like that each chapter lays out the various dietary restrictions it covers or can accommodate. Makes it easy to look at the options in that chapter and decide which ones you'd want to try first based on your preferences or particular needs.

    This books starts with the basics like what milk alternatives are available. After giving you an overview of alternatives, it jumps into three weeks of menu plans that includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. An example day would be: Sunday: Breakfast - Wholesome Apple-Cinnamon Muffins frosted with nut or seed butter Lunch - Roasted Carrot Bisque, Whole Grain quick bread or Nuthin’ but cornbread cups, sliced option Dinner - Teriyaki sliders (or burgers) with a side salad and Awesome Asian Vinaigrette.

An example day would be: Sunday: Breakfast - Wholesome Apple-Cinnamon Muffins frosted with nut or seed butter Lunch - Roasted Carrot Bisque, Whole Grain quick bread or Nuthin’ but cornbread cups, sliced option Dinner - Teriyaki sliders (or burgers) with a side salad and Awesome Asian Vinaigrette. Each plan tells you what page to find the recipes on. There are also menus for a birthday party, for when you’re having company, or for a BBQ. The first recipe section is drinks and includes things like 1-minute milk beverage and a carrot cake breakfast shake. The second recipe sections is bakeshop breakfasts and includes things like Whole grain quick bread and vanilla cream scones. The third recipe section is any-day brunch and includes things like a strawberry short stack and better with bacon fried rice (includes a vegan option). The fourth recipe section is snackables and includes things like peanut power protein bars and dreamy chocolate banana snack cake. The fifth recipe section is veggies first and includes things like mighty tasty broccoli and cream of portobello soup. The sixth recipe section is American comfort cuisine and includes things like nacho pasta and chipotle back bean burgers. The seventh recipe section is Mediterranean meals and includes things like a mushroom pesto pizza and a meatless Moroccan skillet. The eighth recipe section is Asian eats and includes things like un-sushi salad wraps and Korean beed with Bok Choy. The ninth recipe section is sweet rewards and includes things like no-bake pumpkin pie cups and Elvis bonbons. The tenth recipe section is essential extras and includes things like rancher’s dressing, Paleo cauli-rice, and quick and easy pizza crust. A guide at the beginning of the section tells you if each item is Vegan, Egg free, gluten free, tree nut free, peanut free, soy free, uses coconut, or if it includes an option to be any of those things. Some of the recipes seem like filler. For example the Sous Chef’s Salad which is pretty much just a basic salad you already know how to make but includes packaged lunch meats and a warning that they may not actually be dairy free (and fails to mention there are vegan alternatives). Some of the vegan options assume you’d know how to make the alternatives work. For example the vegan option for the un-sushi Salad wraps just suggests diced organic tempeh and extra firm tofu. Do you cook the tempeh exactly the same as you cook the shrimp? No clue, doesn’t say. Overall I like this book. It’s ideal for people like me who don’t want to do anything too fancy. Some books I’ve encountered think you want to use a mile long list of ingredients, fry some ingredients up, boil some others, bake, and that’s just the sides. This book isn’t that complicated and most of the ingredients, if not all, are now standard at most grocery stores. There’s a bit too much meat for meat-free me, but there’s still things here that work for me with little or no modification. The layout is really nice and easy to use.

    BenBella Books and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of Eat Dairy Free: Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and Sweets. I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given.

I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given. With sections such as Sips to Shakes, Snackables, Veggies First, and Sweet Rewards, Eat Dairy Free is a cookbook designed to take readers throughout their whole day of meals and snacks. To that end, there are even weekly menu plans to be able to use the cookbook to your best advantage. My favorite parts of Eat Dairy Free are the indexes before each section. They are presented in chart form and include information relevant to the recipes, whether they are vegan, gluten-free, soy free, and so on. The best recipe in the Sips to Shakes section is also the easiest: 1-Minute Milk Beverage. This homemade dairy alternative option includes optional mix-ins for a more flavorful and nutritious beverage. The section includes many delicious smoothies and shakes that are designed to give users a good start to the day. The Bakeshop Breakfast section includes good recipes, such as Wholesome Apple-Cinnamon Muffins (p. 57), with options for different flavors and for gluten-free users. Anyday Brunch includes recipes for sides, such as Pan-Fried Paprika Potatoes (p. 84) and Lean Sage Breakfast Sausage (p. 85). The Snackables section has a variety of offerings, such as Monkey Cereal Bars (p. 94) and Garlic and Herb Popcorn (p. 110). Mainly easy to make and nutritious, these delicious recipes are ideal for after school snacks. Hands down, the best recipe in the Veggies First section is Cheesy Twice-Baked Potatoes (p. 129), for the simple fact that the author has come up with a way to make cheese from non-dairy milk. This ingenious recipe is perfect for those who have to eat lactose-free. American Comfort Cuisine has recipes that have been adapted from the classic to meet dairy free needs. Sous Chef's Salad (p. 159) includes salami and olives to compensate for the lack of cheese. Mediterranean Meals are great entree options, like Easy Chicken Alfredo (p. 184), made with coconut milk thickened with pulverized cashews. Asian Eats includes delicious recipes, such as Tandoori Chicken (p. 208) and Teriyaki Turkey Sliders (p. 212). Sweet Rewards includes one of my favorite recipes in the book, which is No-Bake Pumpkin Pie Cups (p. 239). This reminds me of a pudding parfait, but with all of the flavors of a pumpkin pie. The final section is called Essential Extras and includes items such as salad dressings and pizza crusts. Eat Dairy Free is a comprehensive cookbook designed to help those who use dairy alternatives to meet their nutritional needs. I am very excited about many of the recipes in this cookbook and I would definitely recommend it to any reader who is looking to eat dairy free.

I was shocked, to be honest, and recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is thinking that maybe dairy is not a good option. I do take some issue with the fact that it states that it helps reduce the risk of cancer so boldly and plainly --- until there is absolute 10000% proof in stating so, it is a misnomer. 4.5 stars due to that statement --- I will round up to five.

    Dairy-free cooking that—outside of non-dairy milks—doesn't use dairy substitutes. It's also really conscious of other common food intolerances. Every recipe here has a gluten-free option, an egg-free option, and I even saw one with a coconut-free option, though others use coconut milk as an integral part of the recipe and offer no replacement. Some gluten-free options do recommend eggs, though. The book is also completely soy free except for soy sauce/tamari. So, like, skip the Asian chapter and Dairy-free cooking that—outside of non-dairy milks—doesn't use dairy substitutes. It's also really conscious of other common food intolerances.

Some gluten-free options do recommend eggs, though. The book is also completely soy free except for soy sauce/tamari. So, like, skip the Asian chapter and I think you'll be completely free of the soy. For the gluten-free recipes it doesn't call for a special blend or commercial mix, relying mostly on rice flours, sorghum, and oats. They also use flax, psyllium husks, and sometimes xanthan gum, but it's often optional. The recipes mostly use oil. Buttery sticks only show up in frostings, and you can use shortening if you prefer. It gives three weeks of menus for those who might be new to eating dairy free and need help planning meals. A chart at the beginning of each chapter shows what recipes are free of what, which is good because it's not covered in the index. Almost every recipe has a nice color photo. Measurements are in U.S. volume. Everything has storage advice. It's a great cookbook, and a good resource for people with multiple food allergies/sensitivities. My only complaint is that it tries too hard. For example, on page 107: "Apple 'bagels' with cinnamon-raisin 'cream cheese' spread." That is a sliced apple with, actually, who knows what on top because I was too busy being angry to read the recipe. I don't need help being told to eat an apple, okay? And calling it a bagel is just insulting. I could pry the front wheel off a razor scooter and put it on a plate but it still wouldn't be a bagel.

I appreciate that she tells us how to tell the difference between coconut milk & coconut beverage. I have never really be able to figure this out. I had no idea there where pea milk or hemp milk – I have learned much already from this book and we are only a few pages in! There is even a recipe for a milk beverage! Looking through all the recipes – I see so many things I avoid because of my milk allergy I could now try. Yes I have looked at other milk free recipes – and I have made a lot of them. However there are things that need the milk – this book gives recipes that use milk beverage. For some reason reading this book has made me think of things I haven’t had in 20 years that I could probably eat again learning what I learned in this book. I plan on buying this book. I am excited to try some of these recipes of food I haven’t been able to eat in so long or have been wanting to try. Yes I know this book was written for the dairy free life style people are doing. I had no choice in that life style. I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.

    I am super new to the DF movement, having recently discovered my own casein intolerance and that my so-called bff cheese has been stabbing me in the back and plotting against all my life in a soap opera like fashion.

Cons: None that I can remember? If you're hardcore vegan or paleo, you might not be into it, but you'd probably guess that from the book's summary. tl;dr: It says a ton that I'm still planning on buying this, because I am super cheap and abuse the free book access of my job hardcore.

It offers lots of ideas for things you CAN eat, which is very welcome when it feels like so many foods are off-limits.

What I value are recipes where dairy is seemingly an essential part -- but someone has found good workarounds. Here, nacho pasta is a great example, with nutritional yeast and cashews creating a satisfying "cheesy" sauce. Rancher's dressing is another useful recipe.

    Honestly, a lot of these recipes don't need anything dairy or dairy substitute to make them. Also, corn and popcorn have lactose in them and can't be eaten by those who are lactose intolerant. You also don't need to buy organic produce. Organic produce can actually be worse in regards to contaminates than non organic produce. If you wash your produce like you are supposed to, then there aren't going to be any issues. And sometime frozen veggies can be cheaper than fresh.

    I have been dairy-free for over five years now and this is one of the best specialist cookery books I have read. I thought it was an outstandingly good selection of all sorts of dairy free recipes. Beautifully presented with full colour pictures and recipes clearly explained. I really liked the author’s approach as well. She doesn’t use many processed dairy substitutes, preferring natural alternatives.

    This a super book for dairy free! The author does an amazing job of breaking down, into very easily understood language, all the differences in various dairy alternative products such as coconut, flours and milks. It's a like a primer for beginners and also a really great perspective for people more seasoned. Also a good discussion on the "are eggs dairy" topic. Great recipes also - especially for snacks and breakfast. This a super book for dairy free!

    I just went dairy free and this book has so many great ideas and helped me realize that living dairy free will not be as limiting as I thought! In addition to recipes, lots of good snack ideas and meal plans.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Lots of interesting recipes and definitely some you wouldn't expect. Because it wasn't a strictly plant-based cookbook I found it wasn't a good fit for me on the personal effort scale. Lots of interesting recipes and definitely some you wouldn't expect.

    I review books on my blog Rachel's Reading. For 100's more like this, check it out! I am lactose-intolerant and got a bunch of cookbooks in my effort to eliminate dairy. There are many recipes in this book that seem amazing, and so many that are also free of other allergens. I found many recipes in this book that I saved and want to make and can't wait to try them.
