Vegetarians Don’t Need to Put Dairy in Every Dish

I’ve noticed it’s a trend in the vegetarian community to put dairy on most meals to substitute for the loss of meat in the vegetarian diet. Dairy has vitamin D, vitamin B12, and calcium. It also has cholesterol, and for people who are lactose intolerant, it causes a lot of unnecessary bloating. Use dairy, but not for every meal, or even for most meals. It’s All About That Base A vegetarian lifestyle was intended to be a ‘living’ lifestyle, meaning most of your dishes should be plant-based and not dairy-based. Try plant-based sauces with ingredients like avocado, nuts & seeds, legumes, coconut, vegetables, herbs, and tofu.
