Big thanks go to Kelli Kerkman of Greatist.com for sending me a link to a great page they ran.
Greatist is a health and nutrition site whose goals sound like something I would write, which is always the highest praise. They even have a manifesto:
I'm not a manifesto kind of guy. I'm an information kind of guy. So what I liked was the page that I'm passing on to you, 30 Dairy-Free Recipe Substitutions by Jordan Shakeshaft*.
The list is mostly the basic common-sense advice that I've given out before, but as Kelli said to me, it's always good to have it all in one place for easy reference and I agree. In addition, the page is studded with links to the foods and substitutes mentioned, which is great for you and makes my life much easier, a double win.
Here's a couple of unusual ideas, though, just to whet your appetite for the whole feast.
# Nutritional yeast for cheese
Instead of topping those nachos with cheddar, try a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavoring with less fat. The taste and texture may be a little bit different, but the creamy texture is pretty comparable.
# Mashed bananas for butter
The creamy, thickening-power of mashed banana acts the same as avocado in terms of replacing fat in baked goods. The consistency is ideal, plus the bananas add a healthy dose of potassium and fiber.
