Can't have cow's milk? Try these recipes! In 2007 I gave up dairy for health reasons and began this group. Then, in late 2009, I went vegan---also for health reasons. So even though the group is called The Dairy Free Diva, it's really become the Animal Product Free recipe exchange. Obviously, you can substitute meat into any of the dishes, but I encourage you to give the meat alternatives a try and see for yourself that vegan food is full of flavor and taste and not all the calories and fat! Enjoy the posts and recipes and feel free to add your own delicious dairy-free and meat free concoctions!

I started having problems with my digestive system in July 2007, my stomach would bloat as if i was 7 months pregnant! After numerous visits to the doctors and trying to omit certain foods from my diet,  I decided to have a test with Yorktest Laboratory in March 2010 after suffering for 3 years.  It turned out, by having a simple blood test, that I was intolorent to gluten, yeast and dairy products (casein).

I have been on a gluten, yeast and casein free diet for the past 2 years and feel like a different person!  I recently tried goats milk, although I loved the taste, I had a bad reaction, which took about 3 days to leave my system.  I can tolerate goats yogurt and goats cheese in small amounts.  I am yet to try the new almond milk, which I understand is one of the best you can have! Has anyone tried it?
