And I know dairy is hard for people to give up — even if it is to get rid of chronic acne. It’s a big ask for some people. I was one of them.
My favourite foods used to be grilled cheese, pizza and fettuccini Alfredo.
So I get it.
What I do with my clients is offer up healthy substitutions for their favourite dairy products.
Need the creaminess in your coffee? Try full fat coconut milk.
Want a thick Greek-style yogurt? Try unsweetened coconut or cashew yogurt.
Love ice cream? Opt for a vegan ice cream sweetened with honey.
Have to have cheese? Try my cashew cheese recipe.
There is always an alternative for any dairy must-have.
One I get a lot from my clients is they want a dairy-free ranch dressing. People who love ranch really LOVE it.
I made this recipe for them.
“Vegetables to me are just kinda plain and boring.”
I hear this a lot from new clients and it’s something we address right away. I want to see them hit that range of 7-10 servings of vegetables a day. That is what’s going to be providing them with a broad range of nutrients to help heal their body (which is how we heal their skin).
We do this by…
Dips, sauces and this 5-minute dairy-free ranch dressing are perfect for here.
Add a drizzle over top over your vegetables or keep on the side to enjoy with them.
Simple vegan ranch dressing for salads and vegetables.

I find it tastes even better the next day once the flavours have had time to meld together.
