Product Description

It has been estimated that over 7.5% of the U.S. population lives dairy-free, yet so few resources cater to this expansive and diverse group. To aid this niche, Alisa Fleming founded the informational website GoDairyFree.org in 2004, and produced the limited edition guidebook Dairy Free Made Easy in 2006, which quickly sold out. Back by popular demand, Alisa has updated and expanded her guide to address additional FAQs and to include an expansive cookbook section. Within this complete dairy-free living resource, you will discover ...

Over 225 Delicious Dairy-Free Recipes with numerous options to satisfy dairy cravings, while focusing on naturally rich and delicious whole foods.

A Comprehensive Guide to Dairy Substitutes which explains how to purchase, use, and prepare alternatives for butter, cheese, cream, milk, and much more, from scratch.

Grocery Shopping Information from suspect ingredients lists and label-reading assistance to food suggestions and money-saving tips.

A Detailed Calcium Chapter to identify calcium-rich foods and supplements and understand other factors involved in building and maintaining strong bones.

An In-Depth Health Section that explains dairy, details the signs and symptoms of various dairy-related illnesses, and thoroughly addresses protein, fat, and nutrient issues in the dairy-free transition.

Everyday Living Tips with suggestions for skincare, supplements, store-bought foods, restaurant dining, travel, celebrations, and other social situations.

Infant Milk Allergy Checklists that go into detail on signs, symptoms, and solutions for babies with milk allergies or intolerances.

Multiple Food Allergy and Vegan-Friendly Resources including a recipe index to quickly reference which recipes are vegan and which are free from soy, eggs, wheat, gluten, peanuts, and/or tree nuts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally thorough, very informative, absolutely helpful!
This is a valuable cookbook for me, as I have had to alter my diet completely to eliminate milk products as a result of my nursing son's milk allergies. However, I was delighted to discover that it is much more than a cookbook!

The first several chapters address dairy and dairy-free from a health perspective, explaining things like the make-up of cow's milk and other commercially available mammal milks; what lactose-free, A2, and acidophilus milks and kefir are; what is pasteurization and homogenization; milk's effects on various health issues such as lactose intolerance, ADHD, autism, and weight loss; good sources of calcium; and infant and childhood milk allergies.Everything is well-researched well-explained.

There are chapters on how to be dairy-free when eating away from home, on the road, back to school, and eating with friends and family, as well as how to go grocery shopping and what to stock up on, including helpful sample grocery lists and what ingredients on food labels are milk-derived.There are very specific lists of all kinds of "okay" foods, along with information on how to contact the companies that make them.

There is invaluable information on good dairy substitutes (some that you can purchase pre-made from a store, others that you can make following a recipe) and lots of just good recipes and meal ideas.

At the end, there are a couple chapters on other good resources for being dairy-free!

I love this book!The only thing that would make it better would be pictures.There are no pictures in this book, which I think would be helpful for the recipes.However, there are libraries of information contained in this book, and all the suggested recipes and foods have been tested by personal experience by the author and everything is very good!I haven't found a recipe yet that I didn't like!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dairy Replacements!
This book, Go Dairy Free, is all about making your own dairy replacements. For instance you can make sweetened condensed milk by using coconut milk. There is really a lot to be said about this book as it is like a teaching book for people with milk alergies and lactose intolerance. It teaches you how to shop, stock, and cook lactose free. It teaches you all about why your body rejects dairy and the symptoms of lactose intolerance. This book is a great help in learning to live without dairy and includes many helpful recipes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Delivery and Book
Item was shipped and arrived quicker than expected.The book was extremely useful full of facts and information about having a milk allergy and great cooking ideas and suggestions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Helpful and Very Encouraging
I found Go Dairy Free to not only be extremely helpful in describing what dairy-free living is all about; but it was very encouraging as well. It's tough to change your life and eating habits when you discover that you are allergic to milk; and the author sympathsizes with you. However, she doesn't just join in a food pity-party. In an upbeat and positive way, the author explains the dos and don'ts of dairy-free living and brings the concept to reality. I love, love, love the helpful lists and advice she gives about milk substitues and how she has developed recipes for things like cream of mushroom soup and condensed milk to replace those ingredients in our favorite family recipes. There are tons of other delicious recipes too! Overall, I rated this book 5 stars because it is the only one I've found for dairy-free living that is easy to read/understand and gives me hope that it is possible to live dairy-free and enjoy life to the fullest. Dairy-free living isn't scary when you have this book as a reference guide!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Dairy-Free Resouce Out There!
This is the most comprehensive resource available for anyone wanting or needing to eat dairy-free or for anyone just wanting to cook for someone they love that can't eat dairy.

Author Alisa Flemming takes a very conservative, level headed approach and shares research based information that you can trust.She also provides a wealth of the very best dairy free on-line resources that you can uses *for free* on a daily basis.

The subtitle indicates that this is a guidebook & cookbook - both of which are correct.The guidebook portion acts as a 'tour guide' if you will, walking the reader through the different issues people experience with dairy and provides reasonable, affordable solutions.The cookbook includes everything from appetizers to desserts with a wealth of recipes that are perfect for every day.

I refer to this book on a regular basis for information, alternatives, and recipes.I know that anyone who purchases it will feel the same.

I was quite disappointed in this spiral bound book.The only recipes were for soups, desserts and only 18 pages of entrees - 8 of them are fish dishes.Most recipes were not kid friendly - carrot soup, avocodo soup, carrot casserole.I guess I was expecting too much.

The book took two weeks to arrive, seller without me asking refunded my money and continued to ship the book which was in great shape. Way to do to business.Thank you

5-0 out of 5 stars A "must-buy" if you have a lactose restricted diet!
This recipe book provides a great deal of helpful information on alternative lactose free products and what to look for on the label to find lactose, as it may be hidden in some other ingredients.The recipes are delicious and simple.There is a wide variety of unique recipes to try.My husband and I are having the best time with the wonderful ice cream recipes!This recipe book is a must if you are lactose intollerant or have a lactose restricted diet. The book is well worth the low cost!

1-0 out of 5 stars idiot's guide to living with lactose intolerance
This is the silliest cookbook I have EVER read.Sheri Updike doesn't offer interesting new takes on the foods we all love; she substitutes lactose-free milk and margarine for regular milk and butter and claims to have created new recipes.She offers a "recipe" for Jiffy cornbread mix, using lactose-free milk and margarine!I could have done that when I was in middle school, but I was too busy baking dairy-free cornbread from scratch!And did I mention that Updike's writing is awful?For example, "According to personal taste, as the eggs cook the whites will become opaque and the yolks will harden."Actually, I'm pretty certain that regardless of my "personal taste," the eggs will cook as above--that's basic science--which, like basic writing, Updike apparently missed.Avoid this book!

3-0 out of 5 stars Helpful information, but . . .
I found the off-the-shelf safe list helpful, but almost all the recipes require dairy substitutes, many of which are difficult to find in my small rural community and most of which are soy-based. My husband is lactose intolerant. I am not, but I cannot eat soy. I was hoping for recipes that would help me get along without dairy products, not simply use soy-based substitutes. I don't want to fix two meals every night, one lactose-free for my husband and one soy-free for myself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy lactose-free living
I checked this book out of the library to see whether it was worth buying, and just 15 minutes into reading it, I went online and ordered it. This book contains a wonderful, well-researched collection of recipes, but what I liked best about it was the commentary at the beginning that discussed substitutions and products you can buy off-the-shelf that are already lactose-free. The author wisely points out something that so many "dairy-free" or "milk-free" information sources omit: Just because a product's ingredient listing doesn't contain the word "milk" does not necessarily mean the product has no lactose. She provides a helpful list of other ingredients besides milk and butter that actually contain lactose in amounts that may affect those who cannot tolerate it. I myself developed lactose intolerance in just the past few months, after 20-some years of tolerating dairy products with no problems. This book has been a godsend -- I've gone from panicky and nearly devastated (thinking that I could never have chocolate again!!!) to optimistic and relieved, after learning that lactose intolerance does NOT have to mean I'm doomed to eat only granola and rice for the rest of my life. ...

This is the best book on lactose intolerance -- what it is, how and why it exists, how to live with it -- available. Complete and detailed, yet utterly reader-friendly even for non-scientists. I learned more useful information from this book than from months of visits with doctors after I learned I had this condition. Very highly recommended to LI sufferers and those who live with them.

Product Description
Danny is tired of feeling different because he is lactose intolerant. After being teased by a classmate at lunch, Danny reacts by eating ice cream and drinking milk during a class party even though he knows he will have tummy troubles. With the help of the school nurse, Danny is able to teach others about lactose intolerance. Hold the Cheese Please! explains lactose intolerance to children between the ages of six through twelve years. The book contains an introduction to parents, a glossary, a list of non-dairy calcium rich foods and resources for more information. As Danny says, ...when you learn to accept things in your life they seem less scary... This book offers a great message for children dealing with bullying and being different due to lactose intolerance. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
This book is excellent! I bought this book for my young son who is lactose intolerant. It is a great tool that anyone can use to help understand and explain lactose intolerance. The story is great and easy for a child to understand and stay interested in. The book also teaches a great lesson about bullying which I felt was a bonus feature. I would highly recommend this book to all school age children whether they are lactose intolerant or not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for school and community children's library collections
Hold the Cheese Please! A Story for Children About Lactose Intolerance is a softcover picturebook designed to educate young readers about lactose intolerance - whether they have it themselves, or a family member or friend has it. Simple color illustrations tell a story from a lactose intolerant boy's point of view. "'If you know these foods make you sick, why did you eat them?' 'I was being teased today at lunch by Alex for being lactose intolerant and I just wanted to get back at him.' 'It sounds like you hurt yourself, not Alex,' Nurse Lily said. I knew Nurse Lily was right." Nurse Lily teaches the boy's class about lactose intolerance - that it cannot be transmitted like a disease, and that it does not kill a person, but it means a person cannot consume foods with lactose such as milk, cheese, ice cream, and butter because they lack the enzyme that breaks lactose down. Charming color illustrations enhance this excellent and informative picturebook, highly recommended for school and community children's library collections.

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent introduction to lactose-free cooking.
Recently, I checked out Jan Main's The Lactose-Free Family Cookbook from the library, curious to see if it had any good recipes. Turns out, there were about 30 recipes I was interested in.

There are pluses and minuses to this book. What's good is the amount of space devoted to talking about alternative ways to up your calcium intake, and what foods provide the greatest source. Some of the information defining lactose intolerance will be old news to someone who has been dealing with it for quite some time, but to a person just encountering an angry stomach, it will probably be helpful. Also, just because I only found 30 recipes I was interested in does not mean you won't find more. Most of the recipes are easy to handle for someone who is an okay cook -- there are a lot of recipes that are basically chopped vegetables and pasta in a certain sort of sauce, as well as some salads.

However, there were enough drawbacks to the book where I think it's best left as a library check-out than an actual purchase.

#1. As the book was written several years ago, the availability of lactose-free products has increased since its publication. Main relies quite often on tofu in her recipes, which is fine for some of them, but in other recipes it would have been just as easy to substitute lactose-free products.

#2. Some of the recipes use yogurt or hard cheeses, and while there are lactose-free versions of these (soy yogurt, Kraft brand cheese-- check the label, it's true!), I just have a pet peeve about the assumption that there are a lot of people out there who can tolerate these dairy products when someone with more serious lactose intolerance (like myself) can't. However, that's just a personal criticism for the book.

#3. When I tried to make the recipe for Spanokopita, the directions were not written very well. Now, I could understand what I was meant to do since I'm a fairly experienced cook, but a more beginner-level cook might have some trouble. I haven't taken a closer look at some of the recipes I have, but a better copy editing job should have been done on this book.

My recommendation is to check this one out at the library first before deciding if it's a book that would be worth it for you to purchase. I haven't done a lot of research into what other lactose-free cookbooks are out there, but I doubt this one is the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lactose-Free Family Cookbook
I thought this was a great cookbook:not only did it go into what lactose intolerance is, but it also offered multiple suggestions about how to meet adequate calcium requirements (as well as other nutritional requirements)when one is lactose intolerant.I tried out quite a few of the receipesand found them to be wonderful; even my friends who are not lactoseintolerant loved them.

3-0 out of 5 stars Wacky but useful
I categorize certain cookbooks as "wacky".The presenceof recipes with names like "pear ginger cake" or "roastedratatouille pizza", for example, will put a cookbook in the wacky category.This should not be confused with bad.Main does use yogurt and aged cheese in many of the recipes, so this is far from the best cookbook for those with true milk allergies.But both the allergic and the lactose intolerant will find the introductory material enjoyable and enlightening; Brenda Davis' explanation of calcium absorption is one of the most up-to-date I've seen in a cookbook.Nutritional information for each recipe is supplied.The presentation is attractive, and while this isn't exactly a complete basic cookbook, the directions are fairly detailed and do not assume much expertise.The layout of the recipes, notes and directions is exceptionally attractive ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I purchased this in hopes of getting more recipe ideas that call for no dairy products, or at least the option to use them or not (like topping things w/cheese). I was sorely disappointed to receive this book and realize very quickly that it's nothing more than a bunch of normal recipes I could've found in any book, but just says to use "dairy free milk/cheese/sour cream substitute," etc. Useless. I didn't need a recipe book to tell me that. I know I have those options. But there are plenty of recipes out there that don't call for any ingredients w/dairy, or use oil, shortening, etc. as substitutes. I was hoping the recipe book had done that legwork and I could just enjoy trying some new things. Not so. Waste of money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Working hard, or hardly working?
I, too own the Betty Crocker Cookbook, and I, too, am capable of a simple search & replace string for phrases. It seems to me that the author simply took recipies from established cookbooks, and replaced every instance of the word "butter" with "milk-free margerine", the word "milk" with "milk-free milk substitute", and "cream" with the words "non-dairy richwhip".With a remarkable lack of knowledge about the difference between lactose intolerance and actual non-dairy living, she approaches the reader with what were probably good intentions, but merely comes off as misinformed. This book is fine if you are lactose intolerant. However, if you are truly trying to live diary-free, give it a miss. Also, if you're frugal, just take a pencil to your battered copy of Betty Crocker, and sub out the ingredients yourself. Maybe a publisher will buy your work, too.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too much margarine!!

If you are looking for a dairy-free cookbook that does not rely on the use of margarine, this is NOT the one you should buy!

I was very disappointed to find that a huge number of recipes in this book require the use of margarine. Margarine contains unhealthy hydrogenated trans-fats, and it is extremely bad for you. It is not something I want to be putting into my body, and I am a bit surprised that Ms. Zukin would choose this as a butter substitute.

There are other substitutes (such as unrefined coconut fat) that are much healthier. Unfortunately, I do not have the time or patience to experiment with replacing margarine with coconut fat in so many of her recipes.

I have yet to find a dairy-free cookbook that provides a healthy butter substitute. ... Read more

    Tasty, healthy food those who suffer from lactose-intolerance.

    For the lactose-intolerant, it can be a rare event to enjoy a delicious meal without the telltale symptoms of gastrointestinal upset soon following. Sufferers quickly learn to avoid many foods and give up their favorite dishes.

    200 Best Lactose-Free Recipes is a collection of tasty recipes for alternatives to dishes that usually contain substantial amounts of milk, butter, and cheese. Just as tasty and delicious as the originals, all the dishes use substitutions that eliminate or substantially reduce lactose levels while also providing additional health benefits.

    The recipes include "cream" soups, salmon "mousse," "cheesecake" and even "ice cream," to name just a few of the delights waiting to be rediscovered and enjoyed again. The book features tempting dishes such as:- Cream of Butternut Squash Soup- Caesar Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing- Florentine Lasagna- Lemon Cheesecake- Fudge Pudding

    Each recipe has a full nutrient analysis as well as tips on non-dairy sources of calcium to help maintain dietary balance. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good milk-free recipes
    In general, the recipes in this book have been fantastic. I've had particularly good luck with the breads/muffins and main dish recipes, and when I'm looking for a good recipe I find myself often looking here first. The author has used various calcium-rich foods including sesame seeds, green vegetables and calcium-enriched orange juice to offset the lack of dairy. A few recipes include lactose-free sour cream or aged cheese, but they are generally marked 'if tolerated' and 'optional'.

    I bought this book when I was breastfeeding my son who had a milk protein allergy and it was a sanity saver - real (quick) recipes for real families.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Rotten Book
    The title of this book is entirely misleading.There are only a few recipes which have been adapted for people who are completely lactose intolerant like myself.Many contain cheese, with the excuse that it raises the calcium level of the food!That's hardly helpful.And there are a number of recipes for foods which never did contain lactose, such as broth.That recipe is in any cookbook you care to name and shouldn't be given space here. Such weaseling does bring her count to 200 recipes but if she were diligent she would have searched out or created recipes to substitute for ordinary foods containing lactose, such as fake cottage cheese.(That would be wonderful - it's an item I miss!)It's what an honest author would have done.But there is nothing diligent or creative about this book - it's a mishmash thrown together to make a quick and lazy buck.Only a few recipes are helpful to someone who knows how to cook, and beginners will find that too many of Main's recipes are going to give them symptoms, which will be frustrating.There's just too much trickery here - it's a complete waste of money.I have used the slightly older lactose-free cookbooks by Zukin and by Kidder and while I have minor quibbles with them, I still learned a lot about lactose intolerane and gained many recipes which continue to be useful.Don't be fooled by this newcomer - buy Zukin or Kidder! ...
