Food for thought:
Lactose intolerance is thought to affect around two-thirds of the world’s population.
Dairy foods have been linked to arthritis, headaches, general fatigue, IBS, ADD, and ADHD.
Reducing our dairy intake is an excellent way of lowering cholesterol, and the risk of heart disease.
A dairy-free diet has more in common with an eastern-style diet—a famously healthy regime, rich in soy—which in turn reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer.
On top of that, more and more people are choosing to follow a dairy-free diet as a lifestyle choice—whether due to veganism or health concerns.
With dairy-free eating finally being recognized as a healthy, varied, and exciting dietary option, Healthy Dairy-Free Eating (Kyle Books; February 2010; Paperback; $16.95), written by acclaimed chef Mini C and registered dietician Tanya Haffner, comprises a wonderful selection of 100 delicious recipes. Rather than regarding a dairy-free diet as prohibitive, this collection of recipes explores the many and delicious opportunities that dairy-free eating provides. Classic dishes that contain dairy have been reinvented, so that you can still enjoy lasagna, quiche, ice-cream, and even cheesecake!
Tanya Haffner uses the first part of the book to discuss the many benefits of a dairy-free diet, and the many symptoms that it may help relieve with a great deal of attention paid to IBS, ADD, and ADHD. She also explains and discusses lactose intolerance which affects millions of Americans, its symptoms and diagnosis. With advice on the wide range of dairy alternatives available and with a section on shopping and cooking tips, Haffner breaks down practical information in a clear and helpful style, ensuring that all your questions about a healthy, dairy-free diet are fully answered.
The next part of the book is filled with Chef Mini C’s delicious dairy-free recipes that have been devised specifically to please the palate while managing symptoms. Recipes include lactose-free versions of old favorites, and exciting, newly created recipes such as Polenta with Wild Mushrooms and Spaghetti Squash, Macaroni with Roast Cherry Tomatoes, Baked Marinated Sea Bass with Mashed Sweet Potatoes, and Black Sticky Rice Pudding with Coconut.
With sections on all the meals of the day, including Breakfast and Late-night Dishes, Soups and One-plate Meals, and Desserts and Drinks, Healthy Dairy-Free Eating provides all the information and inspiration anyone with lactose intolerance or other health concerns needs to follow a delicious and nutritious dairy-free diet.
