If lactose is the issue for you, butter, or especially ghee, probably wouldn't be a problem, and it's nice to have the option of butter for cooking. There's also a school of thought that fermented dairy (yogurt, kefir) is OK, but fresh milk is more of a problem. Personally, I've cut way back on dairy, and found that the little bumps I've always had on my thighs and backs of my arms have nearly disappeared. Most of my dairy consumption is butter and whipping cream in my coffee, with occasional bits of full-fat Greek yogurt and cheese, so the lactose component is very low but I don't feel deprived of dairy.

I had NO problem giving up milk. I have been drinking almond milk for years and love it. When my hubby has to sniff his disgusting milk every morning before putting it on his cereal, I tell him SEE! You shouldn't drink that stuff! (or eat that processed junk cereal for that matter) I'm such a nag :)~
But I have no desire to give up Greek yogurt, and cheese and haven't given up oats or beans either. To me that would be too restrictive and would then be a "diet"

If it's hard to give up dairy definitely take a look at the book "The devil in the milk" as it explains a lot about A1 dairy (poorly tolerated by many) vs. A2 dairy (well-tolerated by most people).

I want to thank you both for clearing this up for me! The primal book is still a good cookbook, I was just curious as to why there was dairy in some of the recipes.

I actually have developed a mild lactose intolerance. (I can't drink any dairy.) I wouldn't be surprised if down the line if I kept consuming dairy that I would eventually be full-blown lactose intolerant. So I think it's best to just cut it all out now. I was craving cheese, but those cravings are starting to go away now.

Thank you again for all the info!

It depends a little who you ask. Some paleo experts recommend eating no dairy at all. Some say that ghee (clarified butter) is ok. More and more consider some dairy ok that is organic, raw (not pasteurized), from pasture-fed animals, not homogenized and A2 (the type that causes problems for far fewer people). Some of it simply depends what individuals can tolerate. Some paleo experts also recommend limiting or eliminating nuts and/or vegetable oils.
Primal diets (like Mark Sisson's approach) have fewer restrictions and sometimes somewhat higher carb levels.
Your own personal sensitivies and any allergies you have may make the difference in what works best for you.
What I like about Mark Sisson is that he focuses on an overall healthy lifestyle, not just diet. I just found a book that might be a similar approach except the diet part is more paleo. It's called the Paleo Coach by Jason Seib.
Sean Croxton from Underground wellness had an interview with the author recently which you can find on his website.

from what I understand that is the difference between "primal" and "paleo"

Ok, so one of the cookbooks my hubby and I got was "The Primal Blueprint Cookbook" by Mark Sisson. I have noticed that some of the recipes have cheese and/or butter. I thought we weren't supposed to consume dairy, or is it something that's ok on occasion?

Thank you for your help!
