    I'm allergic to dairy products and sometimes I find it hard to eat a lot of foods. Also, lately I've noticed that if I put any foods that have dairy in my mouth to eat I get a queasy feeling. I wanted to share this list of Dairy Substitutes to those thinking of cutting dairy out but not knowing what to substitute it for.


    Dairy-Free Substitutes - Recipe Solutions for the Dairy-Free Cook

    To Replace Butter:

    • 1 cup dairy-free soy margarine, such as Willow Run (reduce the salt in recipe by ½ t. if recipe calls for unsalted)
    • 1 cup canola oil (Note: for many baked recipes, or recipes that use butter to coagulate, emulsify or stabilize, soy margarine will be the better choice. Oil works well as part of meat and vegetable dishes as well as sauces.)
