Giveaway: Go Dairy Free

Today I’m giving away a copy of the book Go Dairy Free by Alisa Fleming, founder of godairyfree.org.

Alisa is a fabulously successful self-published author, blogger and business woman who presents at conferences all over the country; she will actually be speaking at one here in Boulder later this month.

I would say that Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook for Milk Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, and Casein-Free Living is a veritable bible for those with dairy allergies; it will teach you how to cook without dairy.

In this excellent book, Fleming identifies dairy in its various forms, as well as the conditions and ailments that can be associated with a dairy allergy or intolerance.  That’s not all though, there are numerous chapters full of solutions, with substitutions for dairy products including milk, butter and cheese.

Take for example the section Fleming has on milk alternatives.  There are milks made from almonds, from hemp seeds, from cashews, and there’s even a cantaloupe milk!  Fleming has more than 225 delicious recipes in this tome of dairy-free goodness.

Many people who have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant are also not able to digest dairy products.

If you’re one of those people (or if you would simply like to win this amazing book),  just leave a comment below. This giveaway will end Friday, June 10, 2011, at 11pm (MST) and is open to everyone, everywhere.

UPDATE: This giveaway is now over. The winner of the Go Dairy Free giveaway was Holly. Thanks to everyone who participated!

    I recently found out that although we didn’t think we had any symptons, myself and my son (16) have just been told of an egg allergy. We were told it could be the cause of inflammation in our bodies and to stay off for a few months and retest.
    It has been very difficult because we both LOVE eggs and they are in so many recipes.
    As far as other dairy products are concerned I have thought that we should not eat it, and I am anxious to read this book. At this moment although dairy does not play a major role in our diets, we do use it from time to time.
    Love this site. thank you.

  2. kathie says

    Just learning how to cook a new way and trying to find encouraging recipes. This sounds like a great book to inspire me. thanks

  3. Linda Mazar says

    I would love a copy of this book! Sounds like it’s exactly what I need. I have a hard time figuring out substitutes for dairy products and since my daughters and I cannot have dairy, this would be perfect.

  4. Tasha says

    Thanks for another awesome giveaway! I have recently figured out I am allergic/sensitive to dairy, gluten, soy and corn and am having trouble cutting them out completely.

  5. Dawn says

    I’ve had my share of dairy free experiments. Would love a books with good workable ideas.

  6. Lori says

    This sounds like a book I need. I’ve been gluten free for 1.5 years and following your awesome website. Now I’ve just found out I am allergic to milk, soy and eggs.

  7. joe says

    I go thru close to 6 gal of whole milk a week just for me. would love to get off the dairy. hope I win. joe

  8. Janine Cmaidalka says


    Thank you for your website. My 18 month old can’t have dairy, egg, and nuts. We hope she outgrows it, but you have been a lifesaver as I am always looking for recipes and am learning from your site on how to cook for our baby! Thank you and I would put the book to good use learning more ideas for Katie! Thanks. Janine Cmaidalka

  9. Kristi B. says

    Oh I would love this! I gave my copy to my mom and I want it back but she needs it more than me.

  10. Gretchen says

    I’d love to have this book!. I have milk, egg, and soy allergies, along with Celiac disease. I find dairy the hardest to manage.

  11. Jenna says

    This would be a great book! I have diary issues as well as gluten. I often just skip the diary rather than trying to substitute.

  12. says

    This is a wonderful idea. I remember being told by my doctor that my tests indicated that I needed to be free of gluten, dairy,eggs, and soy. I could not conceive that a book like this existed. What a godsend for people with this problem.

  13. Marti says

    You’re absolutely right that there is no real comparison between treats made with almond flour as opposed to tapioca, sorghum, rice flour, etc. And, I’m glad for the fiber in almond flour, too!

    I’ve been avoiding dairy for more than 10 years, and my favorite “substitute” is unsweetened Almond Milk! Alisa’s book sounds intriguing — would love to win it.

  14. Pat Thames says

    This would be a wonderful book for our household. My 16 year old grandson can not have dairy or gluten, berries, additives. My daughter and I do not eat most of what he cannot eat. He will go to Mayo Clinic in Rochester next month for help because he runs a low fever most of the time and loses many meals. He has lost almost fifty pounds.

    I am schocked at the replies you receive. There are so many having food allergies.

    Thank you for sharing what you have learned for feeding your family.

  15. Vanette says

    So grateful for your website and cookbooks! With kids with allergies, we are always looking for ways to rotate foods (so we don’t eat the same category, including dairy, more than once every 4 days). I love the fact that we can cook gluten free and healthy treats that everyone enjoys!

  16. Brenda James says

    My husband is on a special diet due to many food sensitivities and we must go Dairy-Free. I’d love to win this book. Thank you very much!! Brenda James :-)

  17. Gill says

    I would love to win this book. Thank you for the opportunity to comment and enter this drawing.

    Congratulations on your new book and all the importantly vital work you do with your blog to educate your readers with quality information to help them with their dietary needs.

  18. Skruf says

    Elana you have made my day yet again! Being a Coeliac with Dairy intolerance along with ALL the other foods I have to avoid I always look forward to the great recipes and links you share. I have suffered since a small child with degestion issues so I grew to dislike food. You are bringing pleasure back to meal times THANKYOU. Its so hard finding great substitutes that I can have, appreciate the time and effort you put into making food a little easier do deal with. Keep up the fantastic work!!!

  19. Amber says

    Dairy is just one of the (many) things I have to substitute for. After checking this book out from the library (several times)…I know that it is a must-have for my house!

  20. says

    Oooooh I would love the opportunity to win this book! We’re vegan in addition to being GF, and this book would be a great addition to our library!

  21. Jessica Lea, RD says

    Wow! Lovely blog! I just came across this blog after finding a mention in Serious Eats, LOVE it :) Keep it up, Elana.

  22. Hilary says

    Just found out that it’s casein that I don’t digest well, so would LOVE to win this book! Of course I’m also gluten free too as I don’t do well with that either.

  23. Carol says

    Having allergy-triggered asthma, I am always looking for new recipes and ideas that will help me stay away from my food allergens (especially dairy products) but still enjoy great tasting food. “Go Dairy Free” sounds like a great one to add to my meager new collection of cookbooks to help me develop a new menu plan!

  24. Paula says

    I’m looking forward to reading this! My kids generally use goat products (butter, kefir, cheese) but we need to give dairy free a trial this summer.

  25. gypsysunn says

    Sounds like a great resource! I found eliminating dairy – in addition to grains – has been very helpful for me.

  26. SANDRA says

    I’ve only recently gone dairy-free–in the last 2 weeks–and I notice my stuffy nose is at least 70% less stuffy! I’m lactose and lact-albumin intolerant and would love to win this cookbook to help me with substitutions in my cooking/baking! Love your blog, Elana!

  27. bridget says

    I am just starting to incorporate raw food into my diet and am taking steps to also go dairy free! Your giveaway would be a great resouce!

  28. Robyn says

    I am so happy that my sister has turned me on to you and your cooking style. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 14 years ago and recently found myself heading toward pre-diabetic. All those starches! I am altering my diet yet again and with your great low carb recipes I am losing all this extra weight and my blood sugar is in a good range! Love it!!!!! Thank you so much for making eating enjoyable for those of us with struggles.

  29. Allison says

    I have been lactose intolerant for over 10 years now so I would love more knowledge on dairy free cooking.

  30. Tammi says

    I feel like “dairy free” living is harder than anything to implement. Would love the book and some great ways to substitute dairy in our diet. My 4 year old has a terrible time with dairy and of course all she wants is cow’s milk. Help!!!

  31. Laurel says

    Alissa’s such an inspiration and I just know my college bound niece would kill for her book!

  32. says

    Cantaloupe milk? That’s a new one on me! I have a casein intolerance and have had to work around it for years, but there’s always something new to learn.

  33. Jennifer Sherman says

    Elana, Thank you for all of the items you share with us GF people, etc. I went GF and DF 2-3 years ago and am always looking for ways to compensate for the items we miss.

  34. jaclyn says

    I am dairy free and recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy. This could help me find some new recipes to fit my new diet.

  35. aps says

    would love to have a copy of this while dealing with a little one who is sensitive to dairy. Would be wonderful to learn what dairy alternatives can provide calcium

  36. says

    I was curious about cashew milk but now you have me wondering about canteloupe. I still remember forcing myself to eat a scoop of ice cream at a girl friends house (as she had made me a surprize 21st birthday cake)(100 years ago!) and spending the night in utter agony. I finally learned to speak up after that about not being able to eat dairy or wheat. (….come on, just a little bite….sigh)

  37. Kathleen Krueger says

    I know alot of people who are just opening up to be dairy free and feel so much better! I would love to have this book. I love almond milk and would use this book as a jumping onto being more aware of diffent recipes I can use in my daily life.

  38. Theresa-Maria says

    Elana, this book looks very interesting.As someone with Celiac Disease, I can use all the help I can get trying to cook dairy free for myself !

  39. Andrea Collins says

    Would like this book not because of dairy allergies but just to limit our dependence on dairy!

  40. John H. says

    This book sounds fantastic. I’ve dropped most dairy, occasionally I have something with grass fed dairy but it is more and more rare.
    I’d love to win the book .

  41. Anna Marie says

    I am one of those who can’t have any dairy of any kind. . . it can be difficult, BUT I feel so much healthier and have much more energy now that I have removed dairy from my life

  42. says

    This book is EXACLTY what I’ve been needing! I can’t seem to bring myself to part with dairy even though I should (and the bf just discovered a lactose intolerance). Thanks for this chance Elana :)

  43. Susan Hall says

    I have never had milk made from hemp but have heard it is good. I am gluten free and try to be dairy free as much as possible.

  44. Angie says

    This book sounds great, as my daughter has recently discovered she is allergic to many, many foods and creatures. Thank you for all the info shared with us.

  45. Peggy Parsons says

    I have recently been having problems after eating or drinking any dairy
    products. This book sounds very interesting and the information in it
    would undoubtedly put me on the right track.

  46. Valerie Cobbs says

    My husband and I have been on the Paleo diet for about 6 weeks now. My psoriasis has disappeared and my acne has pretty much gone away. I’m off antibiotics for the first time since I was 17 years old (I’m now 66 years old). I’d love to have a copy of the dairy free book because I’m relearning all of my old cooking skills. Every little bit of knowledge helps.


  47. says

    This book sounds like a dream! I am allergic to milk. Every time I eat just a little I get congestion and sinus headaches- not good:-(

  48. caroline says

    Please I want to win this book, i cut all dairy in my meal plan and also grain. I take a look also at gluten. Always in progress for my health and shape, your book is absolutely welcome if I win.

  49. says

    Totally excited about this find as my doctor declared I go, dairy free, soy free, grain free, and sugar free last week. :)

  50. caroline says

    Gonna try cupcake and cranberry cake this week-end… cannot wait to start right now !!!

  51. Jane S says

    After eliminating gluten from my diet, I have seen positive results from also eliminating or reducing both dairy & sugar too. I would definitely benefit from this book and learning about more substitutions. Happy Friday!

  52. says

    I would love to win this valuable book as my grandaughter who is my first 8 months old now has a problem with dairy and we had to search high and low for the right formula. We give her lactose tablets to help her digest her formula. Thank you for this opportunity and the wealth of information you offer to us all! be well Ellice

  53. says

    I have seen this book a couple of times and always wonder if it will be money well spent. But, as I just got back from the doctor with my youngest son who now must also go dairy free (that’s all of us now!) this book would be super helpful. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

  54. Debora Manzi says

    It has been such a struggle to be lactose intolerant as well as gluten free. It is SOO confusing as to how to substitute non dairy for dairy and I would LOVE to have this book to help me out. I am soooooo bored and frustrated with my FOODS…..

  55. Kristina Lewin says

    I’m one of the Celiacs who can’t handle diary. Personally, I think going dairy-free is harder than going gluten-free, although I’ve been GF longer than I’ve been DF, so that probably has something to do with it. Would love the copy of this book!

  56. says

    Jessi has Turner’s Syndrome and has recently been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. We are slowly starting SCD/GAPS and need all the resources we can get.
    Thanks for what you do!!

  57. says

    I’ve been gluten-free for a while, but have just finally cut out all dairy. This is just what I need for all those pesky recipes that just don’t turn out right without the milk products! Thanks for the giveaway!

  58. Melanie Kabyn says

    We have drastically cut down dairy in our household but could do better. Looking forward to reading this!

  59. Pat Meise says

    I would love to win a copy of this book. I am gluten and soy intolerant and recently have noticed a problem with dairy so I would like to educate myself on the subject. I have learned to live without wheat and soy over the last 3 years, so I imagine I can do the same with dairy even tho I’m not crazy about the idea! :-(

  60. Jackie says

    My son is allergic to diary, and diary products. I am always looking for tasty recipes to make for him, and it has not been easy.

  61. Amanda Johnson says

    Thanks so much for the references you find. What an amazing book. I am recently discovering that I am dairy intollerant!

  62. Kelly Zuehl says

    I would love to win the book! I gave up dairy because I follow the Paleo Diet.

  63. says

    That cookbook looks wonderful! I grew up with stomach aches and nausea almost every day up until last year when I finally got tested. It’s hard because I used to live off of wheat bread and pasta, but now it’s worth it because my stomach aches are more rare and I am able to go out without worrying about my problem. I miss gluten so much, it’s difficult to find recipes that I enjoy and that satisfy my craving but this website is so helpful! I would love to make recipes from that cookbook!


    I have been having much troubles for a long time digesting dairy
    and also gluten. I am trying to eat gluten free for about one month. I feel a little better but not all the way. It is difficult to keep up with all the hidden ingredients in the foods that we buy. I also have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis for many years. I am always in pain. I just found a web site about natural remedies, lets see if will help me. I think that the book will help me so much!!. Learning new ways to improve my health is always my goal. Good lock to all the ones that want to win the book.

  65. Joan M says

    This would be wonderful, I need ideas for my Mom….trying to make her dairy free!!!

  66. alissa jones says

    i would love to enter the giveaway thanks you for all the great inspiring recipes i love them all

  67. Erin says

    Gluten, soy and dairy free for over a year now, but dairy-free is proving to be the hardest! (It’s in everything!!)
    Would love some more recipe ideas…

  68. says

    This is so great! Our family has started following Paleo guidelines for just the last 2 months. My 5-year-old, who has been complaining about her tummy for as long as she could speak, seems to be doing much better now that she’s off of dairy and grains!

    I also just want to say thank you, Elana, for sharing all of your efforts with the rest of us. I love reading your posts and am so thrilled each time I try one of your recipes :)

  69. Joelle says

    This is a popular post to comment on. I went dairy and free for my little boy when he was born, and it was amazing how many of my problems were solved by doing so!

  70. Lisa P. says

    I went dairy free 3 months ago (I had already been gluten free for over 3.5 years at the time) after a Cyrex Labs gluten cross-reactivity test showed I had a sensitivity to dairy also. I have been struggling with daily headaches/migraines for over 18 years and have tried numerous treatments, supplements, etc with no improvement; however, after going dairy free, I am noticing some improvements for the first time – less overall pain, and fewer really bad migraines. This book sounds great for learning more about being dairy free!

  71. says

    What an incredible book!!
    Four years ago, I had three craniotomies. Since then, I have had constant stomach pain. Of course, my brain injury came first. But for the last year, now that there is no pain in my head, the stomach pains have been even more prominent. Just recently I found out I am allergic to beef and dairy (Ironically, I live on a cattle farm surrounded by dairy farms. Murphy’s Law?) and gluten intolerant. As a student, it is so hard to cook every night after a long day at school plus homework, and also trying to work around my food sensitivities makes it much harder. Your blog is great though! I loooooove your gluten free bread (simple and 2.0) – I thought I would never have a sandwich again! Thank you!
    This book looks great, if I don’t win I just might order it myself.

  72. says

    Would love to win this book – have a huge interest in the topic, and would love to expand our knowledge base!

  73. says

    I simply would like to win this amazing book, because I see us needing to cut back or eliminate dairy in the near future with my little kiddos.

  74. Melissa Wagenaar says

    I would love to win this book! My 2 year old son is gluten and sugar free already and is sensitive to dairy as well.

  75. Randi says

    I would love to win this cookbook. I can not have gluten, dairy or soy. Any new ideas are helpful!

  76. says

    This book sounds fantastic! About a year ago I was diagnosed as lactose intolerant, which added to my intolerance of gluten, corn and most GF grains was not easy to take.

    I have to say my cooking had been a bit boring and repetitive! It needs some life given to it!

  77. Rebecca says

    This book sounds wonderful. Im sure it can give me a boost on my going completely vegan plan. :)

  78. Linda Johnson says

    My 20 yr old daughter has this book and it’s one of her ‘bibles’ for cooking. Now my son is going dairy free and he would love a copy of his own!!

  79. Stacey LoSacco says

    I am gluten intolerant and have a sensitivity to dairy. Would love the book for new ideas! Thank you

  80. Robbie says

    I have been thinking about going completly dairy free for a while, but just need some guidance on how to do it. I still sucumb to cheese and yogurt but at least I have stopped drinking regular milk. This book sounds like it could really help! Thank you for the great giveaway. I’d love to win!

  81. Joanna says

    It’s great having recommendations for really good food books that make healthful living attainable!

  82. says

    What a great giveaway. Learning to adjust to a gluten-free or dairy-free diet can initially be quite frustrating – and even borderline depressing – so having access to a creative set of recipes that do not make you sick is a great mood-booster.

  83. Janet Harrison says

    This looks like a wonderful book! I’m always on the lookout for ways to substitute dairy products. Thanks for offering this. I enjoy your postings.

  84. Kristen Dawson says

    Hey there! Thanks for the opportunity for this giveaway! “Go Dairy Free” sounds like an impressive resource for me as I have just found out that my son is sensitive to ALL dairy!

    Thanks again.


  85. says

    While I don’t need to go “dairy free” I am ALWAYs looking for new recipes. I want to be well versed in all types of foods so that if someone is coming over to my house that can’t have this or that then I won’t have a freak out at the market. :)

  86. JoAnne says

    What a great book, as I don’t consume any dairy. It’s always fun to have new ideas to get inspirations from!

  87. Elisa Alexander says

    wow. Just found your website. Doc has me on a detox diet right now, (no Soy, no wheat etc) but look forward to some interesting alternatives to eating for me and my family going forward!

  88. sandy says

    Went dairy free 10 months ago and always looking for great foods made without dairy. It has made a big difference in how our bodies feel.

  89. Shelby P. says

    The book sounds awesome! It would be an invaluable resource to have. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  90. Suzanne Shisley says

    Just found your site through Gluten Free Goddess. I have and love the book you are giving away, it is so helpful, what a great thing. I look forward to exploring your site and books.

  91. says

    Last September, I was having horrible pains and joint swelling in my knuckles. I read that dairy may be responsible for many symptoms of arthritus. Stopped eating all dairy and also began drinking tons of Soy Milk that I make myself. Within 2 weeks, I was pain free and after just a month, the knuckles had returned to normal. Since then, I’ve changed my whole diet to gluten free, lost 70 lbs. and feel like a new person. What made sense to me was the original article about dairy said the humans are the only mammals that keep drinking milk after they are weened. We don’t need dairy in our nutrition and can get better calcium from vegetables and other, cheaper foods too! Thanks Elana!

  92. brandy avila says

    We are a dairy free home. I’d love some help on how to cook without dairy. We have been stuck in a rut lately.

  93. Karen says

    Elana, you are always giving away something wonderful! I would love to add this to my collection of gluten-free, dairy-free recipes. thanks for the opportunity.

  94. Nerissa says

    I would love this book. I’m always looking for new ways to keep dairy out/low as it really upsets my allergies.

  95. Cynthia S. says

    Yep, I would love a copy. I am allergic to whey, which makes the coming of ice cream season kind of a bummer.

  96. says

    This book truly sounds wonderful!
    Having recently moved back to my native country Norway after many years in Canada, I have come to realize that I am milk intolerant. But living in the country of milk and meat (a true nordic diet – not a lot of fruits and vegetables available here), my intention of staying completely off milk to rebuild my system, is facing quite a few challenges. I newer realized that milk and milk products where in such a large number of foods! Internet (and your great blog) has given me many ideas, but inspiration is always welcome!

  97. says

    I just found out I was allergic to dairy last month. Before that I had a baking blog and cooked with butter as often as possible! It has been a real sea change- and I feel like a new woman. I would love some inspiration though- this book looks perfect. Thanks for the opportunity!

  98. Heather Trabing says

    This book would be amazing to have!! I just recently realized I was intolerant to dairy and would LOVE to read up on it! :) I hope I can get it for sure! :)

  99. PAT says

    This book sounds delightful. In addition to being gluten intolerant, I am soy and dairy intolerant, so this cookbook would be a welcome addition to the other GF cookbooks.

  100. says

    I am allergic to dairy, but also a lot of dairy’s substitutes, like rice, soy, and anything with carageenan. So, I’m always on the look-out for helpful substituting resources. Thanks, Elana!

  101. Meredith says

    I never had any sensitivity to dairy growing up, but as a sophomore in college I developed lactose intolerance. I tried taking lactase enzyme, but unless I took at least 4 they didn’t work for me very well. Grudgingly I gave up eating all of the foods that I loved with dairy in them. Recently I have started cooking and baking dairy free, but would love a cookbook with recipes that are all dairy free so that I don’t have to come up with substitute ingredients myself.

  102. Monique says


    I cannot tolerate any grains or dairy so would love to see this book. Thanks Elana!


  103. annie says

    thanks for the opportunity elana, with this book combined with everything i’m learning from your book and website, making healthy meals and treats probably couldn’t get much easier…

  104. says

    That would be awesome! I’m recently diagnosed gluten intolerant, and now lactose intolerant! I need ideas ;)

  105. Meghan says

    This books sounds awesome. I am enrolling in school at the Institution for Integrative Nutrition in the fall and I am excited to learn about different lifestyles and diet and so that way I can take on any type of client and help them be at their healthiest. This book would be great to use for myself or future clients or just knowledge alone. I sometimes wonder if I have a dairy allergy and so I stay of dairy and just drink almond milk and then when I switch back to dairy I am ok for a while but then my stomach hurts again. Never really sure what it is. Excited about this book!

  106. jamie guidry says

    My doctor advised me to go gluten, dairy and egg free to reverse an autoimmune issue. So, learning new and tasty recipes is always wonderful.

    Thank you for all your wonderful posts and sharing your delicious recipes.


  107. Betty Smith says

    My granddaughter is 8 years old and has not been able to eat gluten or dairy since she was 9 months old. I have used many of your recipes to help me learn how to cook for her when she visits.

  108. Jena says

    Hello! I would love to win this book to learn more about being dairy free. Just the other day I told my husband I was thinking of going dairy free (as I am already gluten free). This would be the perfect learning opportunity for me to see if my stomach would handle being GF and DF!

  109. Tracy Hobdy says

    What a wonderful resource! I am just beginning the dairy free journey (along with cutting gluten and sugar) and need ideas for delicious alternatives! I think these recipes will help me encourage my entire family to commit to a diet and lifestyle change. Thanks!

  110. Leah says

    We have a lot of people with casein intolerances in my family and I would love to have this book as a reference!

  111. Melissa says

    We’ve been mostly gluten free & dairy free for 3 years, with the occasional compromise. I’ve been thinking lately that I really need to crack down on the dairy more, so this would be a wonderful addition to help me get remotivated. Thanks to all you wonderful people that forge the trails to make it easier for the rest of us!

  112. Maggie says

    I would love to have this book! I’ve been dairy free for a year now and would love more creative ideas.

  113. Marina says

    I’ve been trying to go dairy free but I’m addicted to cheese. I would like some help :)

  114. Joni says

    I don’t tolerate gluten or dairy well, so I would love to add this cookbook to my arsenal.

  115. says

    My daughter, Elaina, is 5 and was recently told she was gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant. This cookbook would be great for this Mommy who has no idea how to cook, now.

  116. Karin says

    I agree – sometimes it can be such a challenge to be both gluten and dairy free. This would be a great resource.

  117. Magali says

    Hi Elana!
    I used to make my own yogurts and my own cheese. Then I found out I was lactose intolerant. Well, it did change my way of life, but certainly gave me the chance to explore new healthier ways of eating and living! I’m always looking for new sources of dairy-free (but also gluten-free) recipes, tips and ideas so this “Go Dairy Free” edition really sounds appealing :)
    Thank you for everything you do!

  118. Gro says

    I’m going to try to go dairyfree, to see if that will help with my stomach, and this book would be a really great help.

  119. says

    Looks like a great book, 90% of my health problems have been solved just going gluten free, but the other 10% might be from dairy and possibly some other foods…I’m still figuring things out. I would love to win this book!

  120. irene simanavicius says

    I am so pleased that there is abook out like this. i am eastern european and we live on sour cream yogourt and cheese. I miss it so much. I am lactose intolerant and would love to find some substitutions.
    Thank you so much..

  121. Marci says

    Having to live both gluten-free AND dairy-free is such a challenge – it’s nice to know there are great resources like this out there!

  122. Sara says

    This looks like a valuable resource in shifting our diet to accomodate dairy allergies in some of my children. Thanks for the giveaway!

  123. Velvia says

    I have been dairy free for almost three years now. It was by choice, not necessity, and I don’t miss it at all. thanks for the chance to win this book.

  124. Sharon Norton-Bauman says

    I love your website, and look forward to reading it and learning something new every time.

  125. Laura says

    I used to be fine with dairy, but find that I’m sensitive to it now. This book looks great!

  126. Lisa Rogers says

    Learning to be dairy free as I grow more lactose intolerant. :( would be a great thing to win. :)

  127. Isabelle says

    I would love to win! I’m going dairy free since three weeks, and my three kids will probably have to go too… Would be a tons of great ideas for the cook in the house! ;-)

  128. Terri Stankiewicz says

    This book sounds great — I went dairy-free kicking and screaming, and would love some good recipes and ideas to make this change easier (much like Elana’s almond flour cookbook did for me when I want gluten-free). T

  129. Francise says

    I love your website. It has become a great resource during a very trying time. After totally revamping my dietary lifestyle, I am currently in remission from lymphoma and crohn’s disease. I’ve cut out all grains and starches, as well as gluten and most dairy from my diet. I’m determined not to go back on medication for the crohn’s disease, so I’m controlling my condition with diet. This book would be a wonderful addition to my library!

  130. Donna says

    I would love to win this book. I am interested in going dairy free!! I have been having stomach issues and it seems to be coming from dairy products.

  131. Susan Reed says

    I’ve found your website to be full of information and wonderful recipes….Thanks, Elena!

  132. Alanda says

    I am dairy free and doing alright, but new ideas are always appreciated, I will have to check this book out either way. Thanks!

  133. Holly says

    A myriad of health issues, including the main one, myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) cause endless havoc with my diet – however, I have gotten the IBS under control by eliminating dairy – coconut and almond or other nut milks work great (soy is bad for me).

    I’d love to win this cookbook. Besides eating gluten-free, watching out for 30+ food sensitivities, I occasionally stray into adding some kind of cheese or butter into my food to adjust for missing richness because I still havent gotten that down. Its a challenge to be sure…I never thought eating food would be so complicated and time-consuming – some days I forget to eat because its too difficult to deal with.

  134. cindy says

    always looking for ways to cut out the dairy. I use coconut milk and almond milk quite a bit. Would love to learn some new tricks and recipes :)

  135. Andie Lipcon says

    I have been amazed about what I have learned about dairy… I have found it is one of the causes to my migraines.
    I have been dairy free for 11 months and I am a better person for it!

  136. Jen says

    I’m definitely dairy free and would LOVE to see what creative ideas I can add to the mix!

  137. Brenda says

    Would love this! My daughter was diagnosed lactose intolerant as an infant, I have been since I was 15. I just recently found out I am gluten intolerant and soy intolerant along with lactose intolerant. Any help with meal ideas would be appreciated!

  138. Christy says

    Going dairy free is so easy when you have amazing resources like Elana’s Pantry to help you along the way!

  139. says

    OOOO! Pick me!! I would LOVE to have the dairy free cookbook!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your almond flour cookbook…but I can always use more ;-)

  140. Lauri says

    This book sounds amazing. I’m nursing and my infant is already dairy intolerant so it would be great for me whilst nursing and for him once he starts eating solids!

  141. Annette says

    Looks like a great book and a big help for those of us trying to live dairy free! Thanks for the chance to win.

  142. Sherri says

    It’s interesting feeding my husband and me because of our different dietary needs. My husband has celiac disease and diverticulosis, and I have an intolerance to dairy. I cook all of our meals at home; we no longer eat out. Not only has this helped keep our dietary needs in check, but it has also saved a boat load of money! We now follow a gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free diet. I would love to win this cookbook. It sounds like it would be one I could definitely use. :)

  143. michele says

    “Holy Cow!” pun intended! Cantelope milk? I thought I knew it all:hemp milk, almond milk, soy milk, hazlenut milk, etc. I hope there are “cheese” recipes too!

  144. Jenn says

    This sounds great! I have been trying to cut out more dairy from my life and would love to become more educated!

  145. Matildasmama says

    My gluten-free and vegan lifestyle started six months ago as a challenge to my self to learn to cook and bake in other ways. However it has now become something I intend to continue and teach my daughter to do. I have come to feel much better in every aspect of my life and feel healthier eating this way. I still have much more to learn about thi new way of eating and this book would be great to add to my library of knowledge.

  146. Hannah Gaitten says

    I have this book- reading it now, but would love to win a copy to give to a friend. Thanks for another great giveaway!

  147. Gwen says

    I would love a copy of this book, since we have a son with a dual diagnosis of DS and Autism. We’ve had him on a GFCF diet for about 4 years now . . . I still have problems figuring out what to give him! UGHH!!
    Thank You!

  148. Pat Thomas says

    I am working towards dairy free as I find my body just feels better when I avoid it. My greatest challenge is cheese. I love cheese and have not found anything close to substitute with! ahh Brie, Gouda, and Port Salute! I could dream about cheese plates!

  149. Rita says

    This cookbook sounds wonderful. My daughter found out about 2 years ago that she is gluten intolerant, dairy intolerant and allergic to eggs. I recently found out that my diagnosed IBS is actually a gluten intolerance. My son and I also somewhat sensitive to dairy.

  150. renee DV says

    I was on the HCG diet for the last 6 weeks and was off dairy, something I was addicted to-mainly cheese. Surpringly, I no longer crave dairy. This book would be great for me to try

  151. Heartsong says

    What a great give-away. I love dairy, but dairy has never loved me. I have been dairy free for many years.

  152. Janis S, says

    My son and sister are both lactose-intolerant and I’d love to win this book to help them be dairy free.

  153. Meghan says

    Newly diagnosed Celiac, and newly lactose intolerant as well. This book looks fabulous, and perfect for those of us diagnosed later in life. It’s tough growing up with all of your favorite comfort foods (ice cream, bagels and cream cheese, pizza!) and then having them suddenly taken away. I’m so thankful for this blog and many others for helping me cope with their delicious gluten/dairy free recipes!

  154. Julie says

    I made the conscious decision to cut out dairy about a year ago because of an increase in the effects of my lactose intolerance but it’s a struggle when you’re the only one around who can’t have it. On a recent trip to the midwest I was tormented by all the ice cream offerings but I was strong! The way I feel without it is worth it. Just have to remember that.

  155. Kathi Jobson says

    I would love to read this book, I just got your “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook” I’ve changed my diet, going gluten, dairy, sugar and over processed food free. Can’t believe how much better I feel.

  156. Virginia says

    So glad you mentioned the gluten/dairy connection. We discovered sensitivities to both around the same time, and noticed the biggest changes when we combined forces excluded both from our diet. Life changing! Thanks for this site!

  157. Lenee says

    I am one of those just discovering the dairy allergy. I have eliminated all except for the occasional Parmesan on top of marinara sauce. I would love to learn more about replacing dairy.

  158. Sherry Litz says

    I have been dairy free for over a year this would great help because I have just gone without.

  159. Priscilla A. Meinheit says

    5 years ago I had to go dairy free in my cooking and baking. Have cooked with Almond and Coconut milk and have really liked the results. I would love to win this cookbook.

  160. Priscilla A. Meinheit says

    I would love to win this book. 5 years ago, I had to basically go dairy free in my cooking and baking. I have used Almond and Coconut milk with good results. Can’t taste the difference.

    I have both of your cookbooks and love the recipes. Thank you for all your time that you spend making each recipe perfect.

  161. Jamee says

    Would love to find different ways for me to eat cereal or wash down peanut butter with!

  162. says

    We go back and forth on being dairy free. some days it’s harder than others. I’d be very interested in reading this book, learning some new tricks and ideas and implementing this into our family meals. pick me!
    thanks for a great blog!

  163. Jessica Jansen says

    I am a Celiac that is also completely intolerant of dairy and soy as well. I’d love to explore more dairy free replacement options.

  164. says

    I’m am interested in your book because my husband can’t eat gluten or dairy. I don’t really enjoy cooking but that is his love language so I’m always looking for simple easy ways to make healthy meals for him : )

  165. Audra says

    I am a vegetarian who is transitioning to a completely dairy free diet. This book sounds right up my alley!

  166. Debbie says

    Since learning about my own gluten allergy I have noticed that my body really does not tolerate dairy well so I have tried to stay away from lactose. What a common thread that we all share!

  167. Eleanor Rodgers says

    I have celiac disease, and have to avoid dairy as well. I need all the help I can get! The book sounds wonderful!

  168. Charlene says

    Thanks for the giveaway! My son is on the gluten free casein free diet. He has trouble digesting both, and we try to give him alternatives that taste just as good. So I could really use this book to give us more alternatives! Thanks!

  169. Christine says

    I would love this book, just started the dairy free diet, had no idea it was a problem for me!

    Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!


  170. Ursula says

    The book looks great! I’d like to eliminate dairy from my diet – I just know I will feel better :)

  171. Kara says

    I’ve been on a gluten free diet for a while now and recently had to go dairy free as well; thankfully, I have been feeling better. I’m always looking for new information and recipes to try. Cantaloupe milk sounds great! I’d love to win this book so I can try making it and learn of other substitutions.

  172. rbwolfie says

    Would love a copy of the book… I have been dairy free since my son was 8 weeks old as he was diagnosed with a milk protein intolerance. He couldn’t tolerate me eating dairy because it came through my breastmilk. We just tried dairy again via me eating it and giving him a little bit of cream and at 11 months he still can’t tolerate any dairy products via my breastmilk or him ingesting it. It was REALLY hard giving up cheese. REALLY HARD. Even now I still really miss cheese, so, any recipes for dairy substitutes would be great! It gets difficult thinking of different recipes form me and my son…and hubby too even though he can eat dairy.

  173. Martine says

    I’d love this book! I’m transitioning to being totally gluten, dairy, soy, egg & corn free, and need all the ideas I can get!

  174. KellyBelly says

    I put my son on a dairy free diet a year ago to see if it would help clear up the fluid he always had in his ears. I went dariy free too in support of him and it didn’t take long to not miss it. We have more recently also gone GF to clear up other issues for me. I love all the support online for “alternative” eating through blogs like yours Elana. When cooking & baking at home our eating is very “normal” to us because of all the great recipes I can find on online. I would love to have the cookbook Go Dairy Free to add to my “normal” collection of cookbooks!

  175. MKB says

    This would be a very helpful book. I have been lactose intolerant for 20+ years now and have been trying gluten free (and feeling a lot better!) for the past six months. I love your books!

  176. Rebekah says

    OMG I didnt even know a book like that existed! I have had to eliminate dairy due to an allergy (apparently I have had it all my life according to my mom, but she never told me about it) after having severe GI symptoms that led to outpatient hospital procedures and it has been soooooo hard to give it up after literally being ADDICTED (Im talking 8 oz of cheese a day addicted) to cheese for 30 years….and my son also has issues with dairy and I have been trying to get him to go dairy free for a few years now, and he finally was able to eliminate gluten after 2 years of trying, and its so hard and so frustrating to deal with gluten intolerance, dairy issues, soy issues, a low carb diabetic friendly diet with no artifical colors or flavors or preservatives that is kid friendly…some days it seems impossible!

  177. Angela Thompson says

    My son is on a dairy free diet (among lots of other things he has to avoid), and this would help me tremendously!

  178. Rachel says

    My kids and I are all allergic to dairy so I am always looking for fun alternatives. This book sounds great!

  179. Amy Timms says

    After realizing gluten wasn’t my only problem, dairy was too, I would love a book like this!

    On a separate note, I LOVE your cookbooks. I’ve enjoyed cooking out of both of them and everyone is always shocked there is no wheat flour in what I’ve made them.

  180. says

    My brother has a casein allergy and while he’s known about it and lived with it for years, it might be interesting to see how other people have taken dairy out of their diets!

  181. says

    Sounds fabulous and the book got great reviews on Amazon! I have a dairy sensitivity and am always looking for new ways to eat without gluten, dairy, yeast and sugar. Thanks for hosting this!

  182. AnnMarie Deis says

    WOW! I’m especially interested in canteloupe milk!!! Great book idea!!!!! :)

  183. Linda Charles says

    I love your web site and find many healthy and yummy recipes that are safe for me but also pass my husbands critical taste buds. I have been allergic to milk products since I was a child so I would enjoy the chance to learn new dairy free recipes.

  184. Nicole says

    I am not gluten intolerant, but I am lactose intolerant. I have been playing around with substitutions for dairy, so this book would be a great resource! Love your blog!!

  185. says

    How neat! We don’t have any dairy allergies, but I’m always looking for ways to cut down. We’ve recently started using almond milk instead of regular milk in everything. I find the refrigerated cartons have a better consistency than the tetra-pack cartons.

  186. Darlene says

    This book would be a godsend to me! I have severe allergy to casein and must use alternative milks such as coconut or hemp. Unfortunately, I’m even allergic to almonds – so can’t have almond milk.

    I am also allergic to eggs – very difficult if you’re trying to bake!

    Any ideas you can pass along with alternative recipes would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much.

  187. nora stone says

    Thanks, Elana, for continuing to educate us in fun, healthy ways – this cookbook sounds great!

  188. says

    Alisa has created such a great resource for people on the internet who are trying to live dairy free. It can be challenging at times! I would love to get a chance to read and use her new book.

  189. Ria Mullins says

    I am currently on a cleanse and eliminating dairy for the first time ever! Cheese is always my go-to snack. I am really starting to realize I don’t need it as much as I thought. I would love a book to guide me through this transition.

  190. Megan says

    I’m doing my best to be dairy free, but it has been difficult. My family is from Wisconsin and my father worked in the dairy industry! This book would help me learn recipes to ease the pain a little.

  191. says

    I’d love to be entered! Dairy is something I should avoid, but still end of eating small amounts of (primarily hard aged sheep cheese).

  192. Maria says

    I love all the interesting giveaways you got in between your awesome recipes, thanks :)

  193. Jordan says

    I would love a copy of this book. I actually feel like not being able to eat dairy is a bigger obstacle for me than not being able to eat gluten. I miss cheese :(

  194. Linda says

    Within the last 6 weeks we learned my daughter and daughter-in-law both have dairy and gluten allergies! We’re looking for recipes and ideas!

  195. says

    My best friend is highly Lactose Intolerant. This book would give us more opportunities to cook things both of us can eat together.

  196. Barbara Pardo says

    I visit your website often and have enjoyed many of your recipes since my allergy blood test showed that I’m highly allergic to eggs, whey and gluten. It has been a challenging but rewarding exploration of alternatives that has benefited me and my family. This book would be a great addition and give me more information. My diagnosis has been the best thing that has ever happened to my health and wellbeing. Thank you for the encouragement and great recipes. We love the kale with cranberries and many others.

  197. Megan says

    Hi! I have been allergic to cows milk since i was little.. but, recently diagnosed in February.. I am also allergic to gluten! It has been a rough transition to attempt to cook gluten/dairy free but, i just came across your website last week! :) I would love the cookbook! :) Have a great day!


  198. Lynn Marie says

    I started being dairy-free several years ago due to food intolerances, and have had this cookbook on my wishlist for a while!

  199. Francine says

    I have a casin intolerance, this cookbook would be very helpful with cooking/baking without dairy. This GF is all new to me. It would be great to win this book.

  200. Erica S. says

    I have been trying to cut back on dairy and am struggling. This book sounds great!!

  201. Judy Sides says

    I have tried and tried to be dairy free. Hopefully this book will solve my quandry.

  202. Molly M says

    I’m dairy free with a few slip ups now and then. (hard to give up sour cream…). My kids still have dairy (goat in one case due to sensitivity to cow dairy), but I’m considering taking the plunge for the whole family. This book would be a great reference and help!! Thanks for all the fun contests!! M

  203. Amanda says

    I have been dairy free now for around one year. But it is still hard sometime. Would love this great looking book!

  204. says

    I love dairy, but it does not love me. :-( For this reason, I’ve started embracing unsweetened almond milk which makes delicious smoothies! Would love to win this book.

  205. Lynette says

    This would be a godsend in my kitchen. Love your stuff, and use alot of your receipes, and looking to expand my lactose free possiblities.

  206. Darcy P says

    Awesome! It’s good to hear more people sharing the news about the damage we are doing to ourselves with dairy. Thank you for doing this give-away.

    Darcy P.

  207. Elisa says

    My sister is dairy free (I am gluten free with a minor lactose intolerance), and my sister struggles to figure out what to eat/cook. This book sounds absolutely perfect for her — I’d love to be able to give this book to her!

  208. Tammy says

    My problem is with the casein. I have yet to find a good cheese alternative that does not still contain the casein. We go to a lot of B&Bs and there is one in Mystic, CT, the House of 1833, where the proprietor actually knows about the casein intolerance and will cook awesome foods without it. And the breakfast cakes and pies he makes are delectable. We go back just for the casein free, gluten free breakfasts! He has done it by trial and error, but I think he would absolutely love this dairy free cookbook. I think it would give him some more ideas.

  209. Julie says

    I’d love to expand past my almond milk to more dairy free eating (and cooking!). Thanks! :)

  210. Amanda says

    Awesome! This seems like it would be a great read. I’ve been gluten and dairy free for about a year and a half now and could definitely use more ideas! Thanks for bringing it to our attention :)

  211. says

    After years of gluten-free eating I am now finding I have an intolerance to dairy. Unfortunately, coconut milk is not an option for me either… would appreciate learning more about various alternatives!

  212. Kate says

    I’m not dairy-free, but people are always asking me about it since I’m gluten-free!

  213. says

    I suspect that I need to be dairy free and would love to read more about it. I love all the recipes you have on your website. I also love your cookbooks.

  214. Sonia says

    Hi Elana. Thank you for your wonderful website. My daughter 2 months ago started experiencing symptoms of Type I Diabetes and during that time we also found out that she is gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant, corn intolerant. We put her on a drastic diet over night of no wheat, dairy, sugar, corn, night shade veggies and a candida diet. We have made together quite a few of your recipes and have loved everyone of them. Thank you again for helping us get through this difficult time.

  215. Barbara Warren says

    What an awesome give-away! Thanks for a chance to win and for all the great recipes.

  216. Viva says

    I’ve been allergic to dairy & gluten since I was a little pup and am always looking for inspiration to liven things up in the kitchen…..especially when it comes to making meals that both myself and my dairy,gluten,sugar lovin’ husband can share!! The book looks great!

  217. ashlee macdonald says

    Oh I would love this cookbook! I am always trying to find new recipes that are dairy free!

  218. Amy says

    I’d love to have a copy of this book! Have had it out from tehlibrary and found it useful.

  219. betsy says

    I’m new to gluten free and dairy free eating. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and am trying to do my best to help with the pain. A book would be so helpful to get me jump started on my new quest!

  220. Laura rechtfertig says

    What a great book. My four yr old is allergic to casein and it appears that my 14 mo old is the same. Would love to have some aLternatives. Thx.

  221. Nicole says

    Thanks for all the recipe posts, I often play in the kitchen with gluten free & vegan recipes. Sites like yours help people! I personally enjoy the health aspect of gluten free options. Keep them coming, Nicole

  222. Becky says

    I’m in the process of healing my gut right now and this book would be perfect for me to learn some new dairy-free recipes!

  223. says

    This book looks amazing! What a blessing for those of us who are GF and intolerant of dairy. thanks for making us aware of her contribution for our world!

  224. Hillary says

    This would be a great book to have since I don’t tolerate most dairy due to Celiac Disease. My kids also don’t seem to do to well with it. I weaned them from breast milk to almond milk. Now we make homemade yogurt from un-homogenized whole milk that cultures for 24 hours so there is no lactose left, and we all seem to do well with that. More dairy free options would be nice though.

  225. Mary Dupuis says

    What a great idea to give away a book to help those of us out here that cannot tolerate the casein in milk. Thank you!

  226. Pam says

    I’ve been a vegetarian since 1984 and would love to go vegan. My kids are 2 and 5 and I don’t feel I have the knowledge to give them a healthy dairy-free diet. I’d love to read about dairy-free options. I’m okay with eggs since we have our own chickens that give us eggs.

  227. says

    Among all my food issues, dairy is at the top of the list. I am always searching for dairy-free foods and would love to read this book. Thank you.

  228. says

    I would love love love this book. My sister has celiac disease and is lactose intolerant, I myself am lactose intolerant as well. Thankfully, we both have been able to nourish ourselves over the past few years, cooking up yummy gluten and dairy free recipes in the kitchen with one another. I just recently bought your Almond Flour Cookbook and last night I made a version of your banana cake, but instead of chocolate I used coconut and walnuts, absolutely decadent, and addicting. Luckily, I sent my mom with half of the cake to work for her clients so I dont go overboard. Thank you for catering to the gluten free and dairy free community because you help make our lives simple!

  229. Deborah Binder says

    I would love to explore this option for myself…..especially giving up ice cream! Thanks.

  230. Lauren Kressin says

    ooo the cantaloupe milk sounds interesting. I bought an ice cream maker last year so that could start experimenting with making my own healthy ice creams. We’ve only done coconut milk ice cream so far.

  231. Dawn says

    I would love to read this book! We are phasing out dairy in our home due to the gluten/casein intolerance issue and I could use some good, solid defense to to counter the protesting..:)

  232. says

    Enter me in, thankfully I’m ok w/dairy but many of my patients are not.
    Thanks for all your good work. I refer to your website often.

  233. Karen J. says

    Living dairy free is very challenging. I’d love to get this cookbook to get meal ideas.

  234. says

    I first realized my dairy intolerance at 17 (after learning about the intolerance just by being of asian decent), giving up milk then, but only recently have given up cheeses. I’d love to win this book!

  235. Elizabeth says

    Thank to my brother I’ve been Gluten free for 9 months now. I feel great and now he’s trying to get me to go dairy free as well. This book would be a huge help in my efforts!

  236. says

    Oh my! I would love this book, seeing as I recently stopped eating dairy. I’m sure my mother, who’s lactose intolerant, would like to read it as well.

  237. Venessa says

    This is great! I’ve been wanting to try out this book. Thank you for this opportunity.

  238. Melissa Gordon says

    Hi Elana,

    I am so glad I found your blog. For years now I have expected food allergies are the culprit for my daughter’s illnesses. Although doctors have told me, that it is not food allergies, her blood tests/skin tests don’t show allergies. But that is all they have ever done, no scopes for celiac’s etc. I eventually took my daughter off of dairy, because that for sure was obvious to me, or so I thought. Is there something I am missing? Is there hidden milk, casein in things I am using that I am not aware? Is it gluten and dairy? I feel so lost and confused and helpless, that I don’t even know where to begin. That is why I am so glad I found your website, to help take me by the hand and walk me through this new journey in my life, recipes, tips, etc. For that I am grateful. Thanks Sincerely, Missy

  239. Louise says

    I learned that during food cleanses they recommend taking out dairy. So once I got off the cleanse I kept with primarily a non dairy diet feeling better as a result. I would love to be able to learn to bake without dairy which has been a challenge.

  240. Megan says

    I frequent the Go Dairy Free website quite a bit! I’m always looking for dairy substitutes since I am lactose intolerant. Would love to to add this cookbook to my growing collection :)

  241. Mary Jane says

    I recently went dairy free and would love this book as a resource to learn how to cook for myself and my daughters.

  242. Melissa says

    I cannot do dairy in addition to being celiac and I am always looking for recipes which are dairy free. I would love to win this cookbook. Thanks for the opportunity.

  243. Ruth says

    Oh, I so desperately need this book. I am already dairy free, but do need more recipes to get through eating with my boys. If I don’t win the book, I”ll likely buy it. Thanks for the rec Elena!

  244. Kari Schmitz says

    Looks interesting, I am on a brand new dairy and gluten free diet (just 2 weeks and already feeling much better!!) and have a lot of learning to do! Thanks for all you do! Kari

  245. Donny B says

    Sounds great! I’d love to learn more about living dairy-free. I’m already doing it on my own but the recipes and substitutions sound really helpful.

  246. Amy says

    Perfect timing! Both of my children, who must be GF, are also having troubles with dairy. I’d love to have more information on subsitutions. Thanks!

  247. Heather says

    We have started to go dairy-free in our house. Almond milk is our new kitchen staple, but giving up butter and yogurt has been a little more difficult. This book sounds amazing.

  248. Paula Glenn says

    What a great resource that book would be. We are also dairy free and I make fresh almond milk a few times a week. It is so delicious and healthy. Thanks so much for your website and the wonderful recipes you share.

  249. Kathy says

    I would love to have this book. I have been lactose intolerant since I was in my early 20’s, as well as gluten intolerant. I also have Hashimotos Thyroiditis. If I avoid gluten and dairy I have fewer flare-ups. I know this book would give me some new choices for living dairy free. Thanks Elana.

  250. Jeannine Snyder says

    After successfully eliminating ALL gluten from my diet, I am now facing doing the same with dairy. This one seems SO hard. Dairy is my go to food :( Pizza, macaroni and cheese, ice cream, yogurt,quesadillas, you get the idea! I have found GREAT gluten free alternatives but my attempts to replace the dairy with good tasting substitutes have failed miserably. Your recipes and blog have been absolute life savers! As a struggling recent college graduate, I would love to be considered for the free book….:)

  251. yvette says

    Wow! Canteloupe Milk! And here I thought I was on top of all the dairy alternatives. I’d love to check out her book and get some new recipes.
    Thank you Elana for all your great recipes and these awesome giveaways that also let us know what’s out there!

    Have a good day!

  252. zingara says

    feeding cow’s milk to a human baby is a travesty…when god has provided a readily accessable “lunch counter” on the human female anatomy.

  253. says

    I so missy creamy sauces and cheesy dishes since I found out I have an actual milk allergy and not just lactose intolerance. This summer would be the perfect time to try some of her wonderful recipes!

  254. Sukee says

    Oooooo… I’ve been dairy free since January! I’d love a chance to win this book. By the way, love your almond pulp cracker recipe! It’s a staple in my household!!

  255. says

    I’d love to be entered into the drawing for the book Living Dairy Free. I’ve removed 95% of the dairy from my diet to great effect.

    I’m enjoying your blog!

  256. Diane M. says

    This sounds like a fantastic cookbook and great guide for learning how to cook dairy free! This is a new challenge for me since I have just changed my diet to eliminate dairy, finding out that I am casein intolerant as well as gluten intolerant. The dairy elimination has been much tougher than eliminating gluten was because I’m a cheese-aholic. I really need to find a gluten & dairy free version of grilled cheese!

  257. Sara Jean says

    I’m celiac and also have to do diary free. New tips and recipes would be fabulous!

  258. Noe-R says

    I am moving towards dairy free at home; this book sounds like a great source to have. I love the mention of the cantaloupe milk. I bet is made with the seeds of the cantaloupe.. it just so happens that I cut up one this morning and the seeds haven’t been discarded yet… hmm, your post just gave me an idea, how timely!

  259. Molly W. says

    We had to switch to dairy-free last year because of my daughter’s severe tummy aches. After watching her success off dairy, I wondered if it had been the cause of all my tummy problems as a child. Since going dairy-free, we are happier, healthier, and tummy-ache free! We usually substitute almond milk in recipes, but I’d love to read about other milk substitutions — especially for buttermilk!!!

  260. Connie Baker says

    This book will be a great book to all. My son owns Gluten Free
    Country Store in Gilbert, Az. and has an amazing amount of people
    who are lost at where to start with dairy free and gluten free.

  261. says

    I’d love a copy of this book for my sister-in-law. She’s eleven years old and struggling with not being able to eat a “normal” (to her) diet.


  262. Tricia says

    I would love this book – my 8 year old has Autism & a development delay (he doesn’t grow), so I have to be careful what I remove from his diet in order to HELP him – doesn’t remove too many choices of great foods or else he won’t eat enough!

  263. says

    sounds like a great book, today i have decided not to buy milk again ,
    every day without cow milk , is a better day !!
    good luck for the book, hope it will reach many people around the world…

  264. Jessica P says

    I would love this cookbook as sometimes it can be difficult finding dairy free recipes!

  265. says

    I have heard a lot of information about dairy not being good for anyone, really – the argument that we are not supposed to drink another animals milk. I avoid dairy because there are so many better ways to get calcium (dark leafy greens, which also have many other great nutrients).

  266. Robin says

    We love diary products, but would also like to greatly reduce their existence in our home for animal-rights reasons. Would love to see the recipe for cantaloupe milk!!!

  267. Heather says

    Our family has been dairy-free since our first baby was born almost 10 years ago. All 4 of our children have had varying degrees of dairy allergies. I often wonder if raw milk with all its enzymes in tact would solve the problem as it has for many others.

    Would love this book!

  268. Annette says

    I figure out dairy was a problem for me long before gluten. Since I have been gluten free I have discovered many wonderful substitutes for milk. Rice, Almond and Coconut milk can each produce a different result in cooking. I’d love to learn more!

  269. says

    This would be an awesome addition to our changing diet. We already have given up on cow milk, but often the alternatives don’t seem as adaptable as I would like.
    I’d love to check out this book!

  270. Kayla says

    Count me in – I’d love a copy of this book!
    I’ve avoided dairy for over 10 years, but after new found food allergies, I have to do more than just avoid it now.

  271. Nora Fernandez says

    I am insulin resistant and I am currently exploring eating without dairy and gluten products. It’s very challenging to change your way of eating after 56 years–Plus I come from a middle easter/meditrranean background, so yes it is very challenging to learn to eat in a whole new way. But I do feel better, and hopefully not only will I be healthier but lose my extra weight. I also gave up sweeteners and of course sugar. So I am always looking for food that is delicious and fits all of the criteria above. Thank you for posting the website.

    This book would be very helpful tom me.

  272. Beth says

    I have a problem digesting milk, but am ok with yogurt. Depending on the cheese I have slight issues.
    This would be a wonderful resource to have on hand.

  273. Jen says

    I have been eliminating dairy for about a year now. It has cleared up almost all of my congestion. I just got further testing, and have now cut out wheat and rye, and my digestion has done a 360!
    I also have high intolerance to cane sugar – that one I am leaving until last, as it will be a tough one!!

    • Annette says

      I have a problem with gluten, dairy and sugar as well. You will feel so much better when you eliminate sugar! I substitute unprocessed honey, agave and pure maple syrup. It makes a huge difference!

  274. LeAnn says

    This book looks great! We’ve just switched to a gluten-free / dairy-free diet, and I’m struggling. Maybe this book would help us. Thanks for the opportunity!

  275. Rhonda Ahrens says

    I would love a copy and Elana I am hosting a party on Sun. making all gluten free items from your cupcake cookbook. YUM!

  276. Cricket says

    How helpful! I’m always looking for ways to expand (rather than limit) my GFCF family’s food choices.

  277. Dominika says

    I found out about my milk allergy in high school so it’s been a while since I’ve been dairy-free, but I’m always excited to find new dairy-free recipes.

  278. Samantha Marshall says

    I have just recently cut dairy from our diet. I am struggling and would really appreciate some guidance and support. This would really help me!

  279. Gena says

    I have been wanting to go dairy free for years. I’m not intolerant or allergic, I just am not a fan of the way the industry treats cattle. This book sounds like the push I need.

  280. Dawn Logan says

    Very interested in going dairy free Looks like this book would be a great place to start LOVE your website Thanks for all your hard work

  281. Joanne says

    Dairy is (almost) worse for me than gluten. It was dairy intolerance that led me to check for gluten intolerance. Hard to explain how much better I feel now, but know there are many who do understand. This book would be a wonderful addition to my new and revised cookbook shelf. Right along with the “Glutenfree Almond Flour” cookbook Thanks, Elana for your support.

  282. says

    As the Wellness & Resort Director at a Wellness Resort in Thailand, I am always looking for new and exciting ways to cater to people’s individual dietary needs.

  283. Tracy W says

    Would love the book! I have been working on taking my family dairy free. I am successful most of the time, but still need a little bit of help from time to time.

  284. Sandy Schneider says

    I am so happy I have found your site Elana! I teach a weight loss class called “Transitions Lifestyle System” and the basis of it is to teach people to eat low glycemic foods and teach them what foods are actually good since the world is so skewed in that area. Some individuals find they are gluten sensitive when going through the class. I have passed your site on to them as well. Thank you!

  285. Jericho says

    I cut out lactose last year when trying to figure out what was causing the digestive distress that I was experiencing, but I was still eating dairy in the form of yoghurt that I made myself and fermented for 24 hours. Come to find out that it is the protein that is actually a problem for me (which would explain why my tummy troubles didn’t go away). So now no more dairy whatsoever, but I am excited about experimenting with making coconut and nut milks and yoghurts! Coconut milk with the raw granola recipe that you had on this blog a while back is delicious!

  286. Zahava says

    I recently discovered daiya cheese. It’s dairy free and soy free and melts and tastes better than any other non dairy cheese.

  287. Heather Rodriguez says

    I have been thinking about eliminating dairy from my diet. I would love to win this book!

  288. says

    We just made our first attempt at dairy-free, sugar-free ice cream last night. Pretty good! This blog has been a huge help in the process of eliminating gluten, and I appreciate that so many of the recipes leave out our other “no-no” foods as well (or are easy to modify to do so).

  289. Hillary Schafer says

    What an awesome giveaway! I never knew this book was available. I bake dairy free which is difficult when trying to get the oil just right in place of butter. I would love to get extra pointers from this book! Thanks for the chance to win!

  290. Scarlet says

    This book sounds great!! I have AS and am not only on gluten-free, but also starch-free and dairy-free, so this book would be a big help!

  291. Kristi Neitman says

    Thank you so much for introducing me t this book! I am finding new inspiration everytime I visit your blog. I am lactose-intolerant with egg sensitivities ( among a variety of other foods) so I was really pleased to see vegan versions of your recipes in your new cupcake book! My family and I do not have to eat gluten- free (yet!) though I’ve been told to watch for reactions. Your books have made it so simple, tasty, and FUN to transition into gluten- free cooking. This book sounds like such a must- have for our kitchen. I may just have to go peek at it in the store today!

  292. says

    This book sounds great. I need to know the alternatives. I am just learning about all of this, to go along with gluten free.

  293. says

    This book would give me an opportunity to have new recipes to try and be able to entertain more easily dairy free. Sheila

  294. says

    Oh my goodness. I just woke up this morning feeling AWFUL because i ate ice cream last night. I thought to myself, “Maybe I need to get rid of dairy for awhile and see how I feel.” I would LOVE to have a copy of this book. It would be perfect timing.

  295. Caroline says

    We are big into coconut milk in our house … I’d love to try out canteloup milk. Sounds interesting, so does the book! :-)

  296. Michelle Swanson says

    I have been dairy free for a month now and feel amazing! Would love to learn more!

  297. Christine H says

    I’m just about to start a 1 month trail going dairy and corn free (already gluten free). After the 1 month trial I get to reintroduce items slowly. Fermented Dairy like yogurt or Kefir, then aged cheeses, then raw milk, then I’ll do corn as well. This book would be a great asset to help me plan my shopping during and likely, long after the trial as well.


  298. Danielle C says

    Wow! What a great opportunity! Thank you – I just discovered the website and would love to have the book!

  299. Phyllis says

    I have been very much enjoying the gluten-free recipes and help from your website. I have recently had a huge dairy intolerance that I didn’t even know was a problem. Boy, is it hard to give up dairy, too.

  300. Cher says

    I would love to have this book! Going gluten free was much easier for us than dairy free–I could really use some new ideas!

  301. Jennifer says

    I wish more people recognized dairy allergies (restaurants, etc.) I’ll have to read more on her blog!

  302. Debra says

    This would be a really helpful resource to have! Being Asian, I’ve always had lactose intolerance issues, even though I love dairy! I’m learning to listen to my body though, and am enjoying coconut milk best!

  303. pj says

    wow! this book sounds great, having been recently told i am casein intolerant, and really missing dairy, i need this book!

  304. Amanda F says

    I would love a copy of this book – I was just told this week that in addition to having to be gluten free I now need to be dairy free too!

  305. Kelsey says

    Finally, a dairy-free cookbook! When I tell people that I have gluten and dairy allergies, they often bemoan the fact that I can’t eat pasta and bread, but I find that to be the least of my worries. There are so many great substitutes for the wheat products that used to constitute a good part of my diet. Dairy, on the other hand, has been a huge sacrifice. There are good dairy substitutes, but it’s so difficult to figure out how to cook with them and end up with satisfying results. It’s great to know of a resource that will help. Thank you for highlighting this book!

  306. Heather Cramer says

    How fascinating!!! I have been gluten free for 3 years and just recently cut out dairy, corn, and sugar due to physical problems. I would love to know/learn about what’s out there and available. Thanks for this give away!!

  307. Mike says

    This is the first I’ve heard about a link between milk products and MS. I’ll have to look into that more.

    Thanks for the great resources on this site.

  308. nina says

    I thought I was just sensitive to lactose but it turns out that it is a sensitivity to more dairy than that. I’d love to win this book!

  309. marilyn brady says

    Thank you for being here for us. My Mom was lactose intolerant and I never thought much about it until I was in my 70’s. I feel so much better since I have been reading and using the information you put out there. Again, thank you so much.

  310. Bonnie Pierce says

    I have been a vegetarian for over 25 years now and am going vegan simply because I dont know how animals are treated prior to giving us their products. Plus I have never liked milk or those things anyway and I am trying to change my youngests diet this summer to help her with issues that have been bothering her.The cook book sounds very interesting and delish:)

  311. Mary Kay says

    I have been dairy free since 1998 and gluten free since 2002. It’s amazing how food affects your body and yet the Doctors I’ve gone to are just now beginning to realize that food is our biggest medicine.

  312. eileen says

    Thank you for another amazing giveaway. I would love to learn more about dairy alternatives.

  313. Kim Kiernan says

    I have been gluten free for probably 6 years now, and dairy free for a year. This book would be an amazing gift in my journey of healing.

  314. Ellena Johnson says

    I’ve tried her cheese sauce recipe and it was delicious. I’d love to have the book and try her other recipes!

  315. Valerie Trapp says

    Thank you for sharing all of the wonderful recipes with us. With allergies to dairy and gluten it is sooooo hard to find recipes and sometimes my substitutes end up in the garbage instead of me!!
    Iuse your cookbook and your web site all of the tine. Your recipes are so yummy I serve to my family and to guest. Now to have the info on a dairy free cookbook is exciting. Thank you, thank you. Now to go purchase the ingredients for the chicolate dessert!!

  316. Meira Har-Chen says

    I have 2 daughters who are allergic to dairy, this book seems to me, will make the life of them much easier.

  317. Tammy McNair says

    I would love to win this book! We were GFCF many years ago. We are now GF but use enzymes when we have dairy. If I had options I would take us back to CF.
    Thanks for offering this!

  318. says

    Wonderful, all those books.
    I am a therapist, living with a paleo-diet – glutenfree and dairy free and have to advise lots of my patients to leave the dairy alone.
    Some complaint: they cannot eat anything, anymore.

    As the time goes by I can show them more books, with pictures, recepies etc. and tell them: live is possible without daire.

    In fact: I never ate better – because I start to try lots of new (old) products I find everywere. My health has improved, and I do not starve!

  319. debi riley says

    Hi, i also would love to win this book, have been trying to be dairy free off and on for several years, is difficult when you just need to grab a sandwich, quick. would love this good resource!! Thank you elana for the opportunity and wonderful site! debi riley

  320. Maile Baures says

    I’ve been dairy free for eight weeks and can’t believe the difference. This book sounds fantastic!

  321. Dorina says

    Just commenting to let everyone know that this book has been an inspiration and blessing to my daughter who has had to give up all forms of dairy products in order to nurse her infant son (he’s extremely allergic to dairy!) If you need to go dairy-free, you should seriously considering buying this informative and excellent reference book (unless, of course, you win it!)

    Elana, thank you for helping people by bringing Alisa’s book to their attention. Do not pick my name for the free drawing as there are others who really need it (and I already have it!!)

  322. Valjene Kramer says

    I have struggled with dairy/gluten issues for years – though it is not full-blown celiac’s, it does definitely cause me problems. How wonderful to have recipes dealing with all the options! Talk about turning a negative into a positive! Fabulous!

  323. suzanne burnie says

    This looks like a good book. We are gluten and dairy free and I am always looking for dairy free recipes.

  324. Ali says

    I would love to add this book to my collection- thank you for the chocolate mousse recipe!

  325. Sherri Pribyl says

    What a wonderful tool to have re: no dairy. I have been off dairy for nearly 9 months and it has made a huge difference in my life; no more choking and coughing! Sherri

  326. Sandra says

    Dairy free is getting to be just as important as gluten free as people pay closer attention to food reactions and learn that healthy and helpful options are available through the work of nutritional pioneers like Elana and Alisa. Both of these issues are being aggressively explored in my family for a variety of health related reasons as we try to find the path to calming and supporting digestion. This book could be the cornerstone of such an effort, helping us all to learn it is indeed possible to change with wise guidance.

  327. Jennifer says

    Looks like a good book. We do better dairy free, but often have trouble sticking to it (cheese is too yummy…). But this book would give some great ideas to help stick to dairy free!

  328. Piper Kirkpatrick says

    My friend’s 2 year has just been diagnosed with 22 food sensitivities, including dairy. I would love to be able to help her come up with healthy alternatives!

  329. Carys says

    Would love to win this book! I love incorporating dairy alternatives into our diet! I’m also interested to read about the cantelope milk you mentioned! Thanks for sharing this.

  330. Kimberly says

    HI! Thanks for the giveaway! This would be very fitting for us. We are completely gluten and grain-free. Dairy has been on and off our eating list for 4 years now. I could definitely use some great new recipes!

  331. Lauren R says

    This is an awesome give away I am trying to hold myself back from going and buying this book right now! I have been dairy free for four years now and I am always looking for dairy alternatives. I would love to win this!

  332. says

    Great contest! I’ve been lactose intolerant for years. This book would a great help. Thanks for a chance on the giveaway.

  333. Karen A, Hearn says

    Just finding out that I am allergic to all dairy, I would love to have this book for education and encouragement. This is a major battle to fight.

    Thank You,

  334. Barbara Hawkins says

    Our family is divided. Two thought that it was more difficult to give up wheat and two thought that it was more difficult to give up dairy. It gets easier!

  335. Santou Carter says


    I’d love to win this book as there are so many baking recipes I can’t do because of my dairy intolerances.

  336. ange says

    I would definitely put this gift to good use on me and on my son who has been diagnosed with one of the Autism Spectrum ailments.

    Nice giveaway!

  337. Deborah says

    I do not think I want to admit it because I really like cheese, but I think I need to give up dairy as well. Maybe this book would give me the boost to do so.

  338. says

    This cook book looks great! My sister and I both found out that we have dairy and gluten allergies, so I hope we can win this book!

  339. Mackenzie says

    I would love this book for our 3 year old who we believe is lactose intolerant!

  340. Christina says

    My 2 yr old is gluten, nut and dairy free. I just omit the dairy for her and have found some alternatives, but would LOVE to have a trusted resource provide me with even more options for her and our family.

  341. says

    Oh how fabulous! Congratulations on your new book.

    I have severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and have been on so many meds including gold treatments. Ive recently discovered that my pain is significantly reduced when I fast from dairy! It is my goal to become a total vegan.

    I am certain your book could provide many options for all of us. Thank you for offering it. Your book will be a valued assest for me as well.

    Many blessings.

  342. says

    On the advice of my acupuncturist, I am now dairy, wheat and refined sugar free. No easy task. Your almond flour cookbook has been wonderful, and I’m sure Alisa’s book could help me on my way!

  343. micky says

    hi. since i became a senior i have become unable to tolerate any dairy or wheat. it woud be great to learn more about alternatives. thanks for your blog.

  344. Catie says

    trying to control/help my 3 year old’s eczema – dairy free is something new for us! This would be a great guide!

  345. Heather says

    Sounds like a great book! I abruptly became lactose intolerant after having my first child.

  346. shirley says

    Hadn’t heard of this book. As a mom of a GFCF kid, I am always interested in new recipes… Thanks for the opportunity!

  347. Sandy says

    I haven’t been able to have dairy for 25 years or so. Just last Spring gluten and soy were added to the list. Any cookbook that helps me have some variety in my diet is very welcome!

  348. Hope says

    Looks like a great cookbook. We are gf/cf/sf here out our house. Thanks for the giveaway!

  349. Marilynn arm says

    Would enjoy a Elana’s Pantry win and especially this book!
    Thanks for posting…..marilynn

  350. Meredyth H says

    I’d love to learn more about making alternative milks and using alternates to dairy in my cooking. Thanks for the giveaway!

  351. Lorraine says

    I recently found out I am allergic to dairy and am learning as much as I can about being dairy-free. The book sounds so interesting!

  352. Michelle R says

    Would live to win. Just has to add a no dairy restriction to my diet (along with multiple others) to help prevent allergies in my newborn baby :)

  353. says

    Thank you so much for letting we international folk enter! I’m a big fan of Alisa, would love to try her recipes in this book!

  354. Mary Hecker says

    I am never certain to what degree nut milks or other substitutes play the same role as animal milk in cooking. Perhaps this book explores that end of the cooking without animal milk question.

  355. Marie Therese Kerten says

    Alisa’s book would be a blessing in my house! Myself and my daughter are both wheat and dairy-intolerant, and it has become more and more of a challenge to find dairy-free foods that really satisfy both of us, especially my daughter. Thanks for your giveaway, Elana, and here’s hoping that we will win the book!

  356. Kathy says

    We have just discovered that my 12 year-old daughter cannot tolerate dairy or gluten. This would be an amazing resource to own.

  357. Debi Lascelle says

    I’d love to learn more about this – I’ve recently realized I’m gluten intolerant (with help from a naturopath) and I also have problems with milk. Thank you for your wonderful web site!

  358. says

    Hi :) My two young sons and I cannot tolerate cow’s milk at all. We’ve never had raw cow’s milk to see if that would make a difference, but that’s illegal in the state of NC. We’ve had raw goat’s milk and have done famously, but again, we can not attain raw milk here. So we’re pretty much dairy free. We’d love the book! It would bless us!

  359. Erron Dawson says

    What a wonderful addition to our families cookbook collection! Dairy is a no no for everyone in our home. More ideas and recipies to make the old comfort foods without out would be amazing! Keep up the good work:)

  360. Janet says

    While I, personally, haven’t had problems eating dairy, there are members of my family that do so it would be great to be able to prepare foods that I know they’ll be able to enjoy.

  361. domestic diva says

    We’re newly dairy free, and I’d love to get some other ideas from this book.

  362. Jane reinholz says

    I need DF help! I have gotten pretty good at GF with the help of your cookbooks and emails. Much of family is also DF. Most of us are some combination of GF and/or DF. In fact, my daughter will deliver my 3rd grandchild next Tuesday and will be DF for 12 months, while nursing. Unbelievable that the dairy that she would eat goes through to the milk and affects baby. I SO appreciate all of your great recipes and ideas. They have changed how we enjoy food!

  363. says

    I would love to win this book as I am always looking for inspiration and alternatives to using dairy in my cooking.Thanks Elana, for the opportunity :)

  364. says

    That book would be great! I literally just had a dairy free month and then re introduced it into my diet to see how well my body tolerates it – I am definitely going dairy free long term now!

  365. allie says

    I would LOVE this book. Since I’ve become severely dairy intolerant this year, I’m struggling for some subs. Please oh please! ;)

  366. Kyla Studer says

    I suspect that my husband is lactose intolerent and would love to learn more about dairy free cooking and recipes. I love your blog and your recipes look amazing.

  367. rachel says

    I would read this book first and then pass it on to one of several people I know with food intolerances.

  368. says

    I awoke this morning with a mild headache and realized (again) that even the most occasional milk product isn’t for me and without reservations decided to look for alternatives to the occasional dairy foods I love. Go Dairy Free is perfect timing!

  369. Christa says

    My almost 3 year old son had been using an inhaler for asthma twice a day. I took him off cow’s milk and the inhaler and he is doing great. It seems silly to use medicine when many can get healthier through diet.

  370. Marie says

    I definitely need this book. I would love to stop dairy consumption, but I am not a big fan of soy substitutes. So, I need to learn some creative alternatives.

  371. Glynnis says

    I would love to win this book! Thanks for all of the great giveaways and your delicious recipes!

  372. Tess Moore says

    My Boys 19, 17 and 14 LOVE to eat but they all three suffer from allergies which is triggered and made worse by any dairy products. They are hungry boys and any help in the kitchebn would be welcome. Thanks for the opportunity! Have a happy day, Tess

  373. says

    I have been gluten free now for 6 years,its the best thing that ever happened to me (celiac that is) !!!! A blood test recently revealed that i am alergic to all dairy including goat as well as eggs and mushrooms. I am officially a vegan and would love to dig into this book !

  374. Karen says

    What an awesome giveaway!

    I grew up with a severe allergy to dairy products, eggs as well as peanuts. I remember my Mom having to make literally everything I ate from scratch because there were so many hidden ingredients in seemingly innocent products. As a child, I ate nothing unless it came from my Mother’s kitchen.

    By the time I was about 13 years old my body chemistry had changed and I didn’t have the allergic reactions I previously had as a baby/small child (breathing problems, severe rashes, etc.).

    I do still have issues with a lot of dairy products today (I’m 43 years old now) but I can enjoy greek yogurt now and then and an occasional shaving of hard cheese without reactions.

    This book is a great giveaway for someone who has, or lives with someone who has a dairy allergy or intolerance. With the processed garbage found on most supermarket shelves today, a restrictive diet can be difficult if you aren’t armed with the knowledge needed to sort through it all.

    I have celiac desease and severe lactose intolerace and I would love to win this book. I read your blog all the time and have tried and enjoyed many of your recipes.

  378. Gail says

    Although I have not been diagnosed as having celiac disease, I am almost certain that I am gluten intolerant and feel that dairy is next. I would like to remove the dairy out of my diet and see how I feel. To help make that task much easier this book giveaway would be the perfect companion and not to mention Alisa’s knowledge c/w all the recipes from her book.

    Thanks Elana for this great giveaway.

  379. Patricia says

    What a great resource book to be able to have. My husband has just found out that he does not tolerate dairy very well. Thanks

  380. says

    Dr. Loren Cordain (author of The Paleo Diet) has also implicated diary in the development of acne. Having a son in his early teens who has also been diagnosed gluten sensitive, I’ve been looking for ways to completely eliminate dairy from his diet. Thanks!

  381. says

    Six months ago I found out I was intolerant to gluten. My boyfriend is horribly lactose intolerant. I try to stay away from dairy as well for medical reasons, however it is extremely difficult. I haven’t had any gluten for 6 months, however I seem not to be able to go even a few days without dairy. I would LOVE this book!!

  382. wendy says

    I would love a book like this as i am wheat, gluten and dairy free. It is so good of you to give away such great gifts.

  383. Julie Lampky says

    My two boys and I are gluten intolerant and allergic to dairy. It would be wonderful to learn more about dairy alternatives and to have lots of dairy-free recipes to try. Thank you for offering this book, Elana!

  384. Krystal says

    This book looks amazing! Thanks for the giveaway! It almost seems like every recipe has dairy now that I am dairy free. lol

  385. Anita says

    Wow! What a wonderful resource. Been Dairy intolerant for 20 years and would love to have a copy.

  386. Deb says

    I can’t tell you how much of a relief it is to see a cookbook with a focus on the dairy free. I am a singer by profession and finding recipes that offer alternatives to dairy while still maintaining flavour is so difficult. I look forward to trying the recipes. :-)

  387. Stephanie says

    OMG – I would love to win this book. I’m severely allergic to milk. Thank you Elana :)

  388. Julia Cher says

    Hi, I would love to have a copy of your book my children and lactose intolerent, and I have a grandchild who is severely allergic to nuts and eggs, so any cookbook that I could win would be a great asset enabling to let my children and grandchildren enjoy the pleasure of eating enjoyable food which will not leave them with a severe reaction. Wherever we go we need to carry an epipen just is case something is eaten which is deadly to our grandchild.

    Thank you for producing a book to help people like my family.

  389. Pam says

    I would love to be a part of this give away. I am trying diary free and finding it very difficult so this would be fantastic.

  390. says

    I have been off dairy & gluten totally for 6 months now…I find it a challenge sometimes in baking traditional recipes that my family still like. The gluten is not as difficult to omit…I do use coconut milk alot. The only thing I miss really is cheese because veggie lasagna is my favorite dish. Also going out to restaurants with friends which doesn’t happen often but enough to annoy others when I pick through the menu:( This cookbook would certainlt help..if I don’t win it I will have to buy it:)

  391. says

    I’ve been dairy-free for about 4 years now, mostly for digestive reasons and I just never feel good after. I really love the alternatives to milk like almonds and hemp and coconut. Any new recipes would be amazing. Thanks Elana!

  392. christina says

    Man, i’d love this book! I’ve transitioned pretty easily to gluten and soy free, but after 7 years I still struggle with dairy.
    Thanks so much!
    Christina :)

  393. says

    My functional medicine doctor has advised me to avoid dairy after some testing, and it was kind of disappointing since I’d already give up gluten 18 months ago—and I love my dairy! This would be a Godsend as I travel this NEW food journey.

  394. Penny says

    We can only do raw milk and only some raw milk . . . . Not wanting to be be too descriptive – regular dairy is a real “gas”! Organic coconut milk is our milk-like beverage of choice. A recipe book that gives alternatives sounds great!

  395. Michèle says

    Bonjour Elena,

    Greetings from France!
    I would love a copy of the book as I am lactose intolerant myself :)

  396. Marti says

    It turns out that for MS patients, there is a link to milk protein. As a result I have been trying to get off dairy for the last year as well as gluten. Though losing weight wasn’t a goal, it was a nice bonus. Lost 30 lbs!

    It is a challenge because my life always revolved around dairy–I worked my way through college in a cheese store where I fell in love with cheese and ice cream.

    Being a real foodie doesn’t help. Being positive and focusing on all that is healthy an delicious has been the key. My goal is to learn to make food that is delicious for civilians too! :-)

    Cheers to dairy-free living!

  397. Yulia says

    I and my son both have celiac disease and he was recently tested positive for casein intolerance. That’s a lot of diet adjustments in our family in the last two years…sigh

  398. says

    I would love this book. I started with soy milk but also like rice milk and almond milk. Also learned how to make a “flax egg” with 1 Tb ground flax and 3 Tb water for baking. Its been a great adventure :) Thank you for having the giveaway.

  399. Jane Ballantyne says

    Just add dairy to the many foods taken off my list. Getting older has its challenges. Help like a dairy free cookbook and Elana’s Pantry make life so much easier…thanks a bunch

  400. says

    How nice to have a resource for all those goodies missed because of allergies to dairy, wheat, yeast and soy. How I miss ice cream! and gravy! and cheese! and rolls! and mochas! I’ve learned to add a bit of sugar-free vanilla coffee flavor to almond milk for a delicious drink.

  401. IldiAbraham says

    Hi there,

    It seems that I have been having lactose intolerance since my teenage years (I am now 25) and I started eating dairy free about 1,5 yr ago. I feel much better ( no digestion problems any more :) But as I still have some skin problems I also stopped eating cheese – which I used to love… – but as I do not buy it, I cannot see it in the fridge, so it is ok..:)

    Is there anybody else not eating dairy but sometimes cheese and having skin problems?

  402. ally says

    hi elana,
    i have been dairy free for about ten years, although its proving more difficult since i have moved away from australia (where there is heaps of asian, dairy-free cuisine) to germany! while i am familiar with dairy-free cooking, i would love some inspiring recipes for my dairy-eating partner (whose french mother bred into him a love of cheese)… thanks!

  403. Elvida says

    Before I was diagnoses with celiac disease, I actually believed that I had an casein allergy. I still don’t eat dairy and it feels great. Thank you for your fantastic blog and books.

  404. rachel says

    I’m so grateful for resources like Alisa’s book and your blog! It makes it so much easier to be gluten & dairy intolerant. I’d love to check out the book!

  405. Cassie says

    I’m entering to win on behalf of a friend whose second child was recently born, and he has a milk allergy like his older brother. I know that this book would be a tremendous help to my friend and her husband as they navigate the world with two children who have to avoid diary products.

  406. says

    Both my little girl and myself are lactose intolerant. I heard about this book before and it sounds wonderful. What a great giveaway, thanks for giving us the chance to win this!

  407. says

    I don’t have problems with dairy, but I know many people that do- I would love this book. It sounds like a great resource.

  408. Ellena says

    That book would be an amazing addition to my cookbook library! I’m going to go check out the website now to get some dairy-free ideas for my son and I

  409. Courtney says

    Finding (good) dairy substitutions has been a challenge, especially when making some of my favorite desserts from before my allergy! This looks like a great resource for that!

  410. Annaliese Foote says

    This would be a great resource as I’m trying to figure out baking w/o milk and eggs.

  411. sweeny says

    I am definitely up for this! I miss dairy, and it would be nice to have some go to recipes for non dairy fun times :-)

  412. Lesley M. says

    What a wonderful book! We have to avoid milk at all costs in our house, and sometimes it’s hidden quite well in different foods.

  413. wendy says

    Funny, a friend whose family is on gluten-free diet told me about one of her kids not tolerating dairy well. That article made me think of them and forwarded it to them. Would love to learn more about this because we are also gluten-free and I notice myself not tolerating dairy well as before. Great giveaway and thanks!
