Food Discussion : Dairy substitutes

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.)

Hi, Queenie. Love your posts. Even though I don't you, you must be some kind of remarkable and lovely person. Lets keep in touch.

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
