Author Notes: Dairy Free!

I can see your reaction: Why not dairy? We were told it is good for us! How about the calcium? Vitamin D?

I stopped eating it. It will be only an occasional bite of cheese, or a very small splash of Goat Milk in my Almond Latte. I feel much better. No belly bloating anymore!

You may not know you have side effect from eating dairy products. But, many of us can blame dairy for excessive weight, acne, mucus build-up, bad digestion, and allergies. Something stuck in my memory since I was a young girl: one of the doctors told me that people should stop eating dairy after they turn 3-4 years of age.

Dairy is not easily digested. Most of the world is lactose intolerant, due to the fact that we lose the ability to completely digest lactose by the age of four. As a result, many milk drinkers develop diarrhea, gas, stomach cramps, bowel inflammation and toxicity. Antibiotics are common in milk, due to cows’ udders becoming infected. These same antibiotics are transmitted to humans. (Trust me on that. I was around dairy farm enough to know exactly what is going on.)

Here is the main reason why I gave up dairy:

Casein, a milk protein, is a common cause of food allergies. Casein needs the enzyme rennin, to break down, but rennin isn’t present in humans after the age of four. Casein is very sticky and coats the digestive system, leading to leaky gut syndrome, mal-absorption and/or constipation.

You will ask: How about the calcium??? Here is how:

Most fruits, vegetables and nuts are excellent sources of calcium. It is extremely doubtful that we can utilize any of the calcium in milk. The calcium in milk is bound to its protein complement, casein. Without the key enzyme, rennin, neither casein nor calcium can be digested.

I promised to keep my letters short, so I have to move on to the next best recipe. But, use your common sense. Stop. Think. Learn. Make good choices! hopefully dairy free choices.
Dairy Free Ice Cream desert:

You can make this as ice cream or you can serve it in a raw tart as I did. Either way you will love it!







Tart:

5 dry plums

5 dates (pitted)

½ cup of walnuts

½ cup of almonds




Direction:

Blend ingredients in the blender until “manageable” consistency. Press the “dough” into the small serving cups. You are done.




Filling (or Ice Cream)

2 ripe frozen bananas

1 ripe banana

½ cup of shredded dry coconut meat

2 tbsp of Chia Seeds (you can buy it here)




Directions: Always buy extra bananas and leave them on the table until you see small brown spots. That means they are ripe! Peel, slice and freeze in the sandwich bags (2-3 bananas per bag).

Blend 2 frozen bananas with the one ripe fresh banana. (Whip until it looks like ice cream. ) Now: add shredded coconut and give it a short spin in your blender. You are done. Serve inside of the tart and dress it up with the “toppings”




Toppings

Make your choice: blueberries, raspberries, chunks of mango or pineapple… Whatever you like.
