I haven't eaten any dairy since 2007 -- and it's worked out really well for me. My main sub is soy milk, which I typically just have in my morning coffee. Otherwise, I'll occasionally have non-dairy based yogurt, Daiya cheese, Earth Balance, Tofutti Cream Cheese, non-dairy based ice cream. I try not to have too many of the subs and just get nutrients through other less processed food, but it's nice to have them around.

Less than one at the moment, just milk in my coffee when I purchase it out of the house. Sometimes I go on yogurt kicks for a while but I'm not on one currently.

It varies...sometimes I will go a week without any dairy. 1-2 servings is probably my average.

I eat yogurt almost every day and milk a couple times a week.

0 to none. I don't do dairy anymore and really don't miss it.

2 to 3 servings a day. I don't eat a lot of meat so I get a lot of my protein through dairy. I especially love Greek yogurt. I usually have various forms of cheese in my fridge including shredded, string cheese, and cottage. I rarely drink a glass of milk, though. I don't care for it unless it's steamed with a shot or two of espresso added.

I might eat 1-2 ozs. of cheese 2-3 times a week at most., but most weeks I don't even do that. Not a huge fan of dairy. I don't like milk or yogurt, and cottage cheese is too salty.

I have 8 ozs of swiss in my fridge, and may have 4 ozs in the next 2 weeks, and have to give the rest away. I do like feta on my salads.

Around 1-2 servings. I thought it was a lot more but I just looked up the serving sizes of dairy products... I usually eat around 1/2-3/4 of a cup of yogurt and/or cottage when a serving is 1 cup. I eat around 20-40g of firm cheese and a serving is 50g and sometimes 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese. It works out to about 1-2 servings on average.

I can't drink milk because I'm intolerant, I use almond milk for my coffee and cooking/baking but am not bothered by yogurt or cheese.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

How many dairy servings do you eat in an average day?
