Re: Any Vegan or Non-Dairy people out there? I need advice!

You know, I have never done ANY milk replacing and my kids are super-healthy. They have never drunk cow's milk. They might have almond or coconut or hemp on cereal or oatmeal but just drinking a glass of milk is rare. I make homemade almond milk or cashew milk as a treat, usually in winter to turn into hot chocolate or for baking something. I have been buying almond milk lately because I'm preggo and not in the mood to make a lot from scratch.

But generally, we drink water and eat food. They eat a lot of nuts, I use olive oil a lot, plenty of fruits and veggies, hummus and other beans, whole grains exclusively, you know, just a healthy all-around diet with occasional treats.

We are dairy-free, wheat-free, and corn by-product free due to allergies. We can eat these foods once in a blue moon ok, but regular consumption makes us all sick.
