I FOLLOW THE TYPE A FOOD PLAN ON THE BLOOD TYPE DIET. I don't eat a lot of dairy anymore, but am allowed Mozzerella cheese which I use frequently, and use veggie soy cheese, American flavor. I love both and don't miss the old variety of cheeses.If you're eating selectively for health reasons, and feeling better because of it, it isn't really a "give up" but a healthy choice change.

I am lactose intolerant also. I switched to soy, almond, or coconut milk and it really makes a difference.

Ok well this is one of the things I was trying to make today that your so-posed to put cheese on. Is stuffed portabella mushrooms.

So I tried to use tofu mixed with spinage, cilantro, and my spices well i put them in my vitamixer instead of copping the mushroom stems and mashing the tofu with a fork so it got totally blended instead of chopped. And there was no way it was gonna stay on top of the mushroom but I tasted it and it wasn't bad kinda of reminded me of guacamole in taste and color and texture. It still needs maybe some lemon and couple other spices, but I think it would be great for a salad dressing.

Accidental salad dressing...lol. So how long would something like this last it is still green in color but am guessing it will turn brown if air keeps getting at it.

Alos any ideas as what other spices i might add to it?

I 'll post a pic of it on my blog of it.

For me the problem is mostly with casein protein. I switch out cheese with goat cheese. Do not do milk, sour cream, cottage cheese, or ice cream. These I sub with soy based products. I can handle some amounts of aged cheese (12 yr cheddar) if I take digest enzymes. Yogurt in small amounts with enzymes.

Great topic--

emoticon to the team, Matalynn!

I'm lactose intolerant and ate a strict vegetarian (vegan) diet for two years--the healthiest I've ever been! For me, cheese is like the Mafia--it keeps pulling me back in!

A great substitute for cheese is baked tofu. You can make it yourself or buy it in the refrigerator case. Some people like to use tofu that has been frozen and thawed, too.

Silken soft tofu is a great creamy base for smoothies, dressings, gravies and sauces. This is usually found on store shelves.

Of course, all of these suggestions are soy-based... I thought I was soy intolerant, but found that I'm fine with it if I just keep my portion sizes reasonable (as with all beans). emoticon

You are worth it!

I was just curious if anyone had allergies to dairy or were vegan in here.

I was dairy free ( not from eggs ) part of last year then started eating cheese again and now am deciding to quit eating cheese again.

I have a hard time with milk, ice cream but not with cheese but had decided to quit eating cheese do to the fact that I was always stuffy even in the winter with my sinuses. And I had read before that most adults cant really digest dairy products even if you don't have weird symptoms from eating it or allergies to it. So I did a little reading around, very minimal really. But what I read made sense as far as me being stuff y from the dairy, and while I was not eating dairy for part of last year I did notice that I could smell better and wasn't as stuffy.

I am totally getting way off track sorry. Basically what i want to know is if you don't eat dairy what is good to use as a substitute in recipes that call for cheese or to make your salad dressings and not a oil and vinegar dressing ( i don't like vinegar ) but something that would be similar to Cesar dressing or ranch.

thank you
