One of the most common questions I get is, "how to get rid of dairy and/or eggs?"
The good news is, you don't have to eliminate all of your dairy products overnight.
4 Reasons You Don't Need Dairy:
- Health risks -- high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol & certain cancers.
- Get your calcium from green leafy vegetables opposed to animal byproducts
- Protest factory farming and animal cruelty. Read this: Factory Farming: Misery for Animals
- Environmental concerns -- global warming & pollution. Read this: The Shocking Truth About the Dairy Industry and the Environment
How to use plant-based dairy and vegan margarine:
- Plant-based milk (almond, coconut, cashew, soymilk, rice, etc) can be used in cereal, oatmeal, cooking, smoothies, etc.
- Vegan margarine can be used on toast, cooking, grilled cheese sandwiches, etc.
Where can I buy these products? You can buy plant-based milk in most grocery stores these days. Check out Earth Balance and Smart Balance websites to locate these products near you.
Remember, it doesn't have to be all or nothing to get started! Make gradual shifts and keep on moving forward.
