Eating Dairy Free

Did you know that about 75% of the people around the world have varying degrees of lactose intolerance? Are you one of them?

Almond Milk and Granola

As we age, our body’s lose the ability to produce the enzyme lactase in the small intestine to break down the sugar called lactose in milk and other dairy products. This means we’re more likely to become lactose intolerant as adults.

Are you suffering from these symptoms?

  •  Bloating
  •  Constipation
  •  Loose stools or diarrhea
  •  Nausea and or vomiting
  •  Pain, cramps, painful gas, gurgling and rumbling in the lower stomach?

Learn how to ensure that you’re getting the calcium you need and that you’re eating a healthy and well balanced diet in a fun and enjoyable way!

Contrary to popular belief, dairy’s actually not very good for us. That may come as a shock to you, but we’ve all be sold on the idea by corporate influence on organizations like the American Dietetics Association. In fact, the USDA food pyramid serves the interests of its main client, the U.S. agricultural industry. Everything we’ve been taught regarding what we should eat has been nothing more than an effort to boost the American agricultural system by getting you to eat more, meat, corn, soy, wheat and dairy.

They have done a great job convincing everyone that dairy is where you get your calcium from and that you should consume a ton of it. Here’s the truth. Science has actually proven that dairy consuming countries like ours have more bone fractures and osteoporosis than countries that don’t, like Asian countries for example. You can get your calcium just like a cow, horse or elephant does. They have very large bones to support and they thrive on green leafy vegetables!

Bottom line:

Dairy is a saturated fat, which isn’t the kind you want to over-consume. Additionally, after high heat processing, milk lacks the enzymes we need to digest it well. You are better off replacing it with other healthier milks like almond milk or coconut milk to buffer how much dairy you consume. I’m not saying you can’t ever have it, but it’s important to practice moderation.

I can teach you how to get your calcium and enjoy foods without missing dairy.
