In this guide, you’ll find a quick reference of replacements for dairy, egg, and cheese.
You’re already used to shopping. You’re already in the grocery store. So far, there is nothing new out of the ordinary.
No new habits required, until now.
Inside the store it’s time to practice a few new mini-habits by reaching for health supportive foods.
Choosing quality plant-based ingredients is a great way to kickstart your new self.
Pick up a plant-milk made with soy, almonds, coconut, or rice instead of cow milk.
Reach for a soy, coconut, or almond milk yogurt instead of dairy yogurt.
Instead of eggs, make sure to get some bananas, flax, chia seeds, and tofu (extra firm, not silken).
Try some tree-nut cheeses; they make plant-based cream cheese spreads, cheeses for slicing, and cheeses for sprinkling.
Check and see what is available. Depending on where you’re shopping, the selections may be limited. You can always make a store request to carry your favorite products.(Grocery stores work on the premise that for every one person making a request, there are ten other people who didn’t ask.)
You did it!
Finally, what to do with your new-found ingredients? Simply incorporate them into your recipes or eat them as they are intended.
