If you need inspiration, consider:
- Replace milk with a meal (or two) with herbal tea. My kids love a cup of warm tea with a meal, especially during the colder months;
- Use almond milk in your coffee rather than milk or creamer;
- Try plain boxed soy milk for baked goods that call for milk; and
- Spread nut butters on waffles, pancakes and toast instead of the standard cows butter.
Have any ideas from your own kitchen? We still consume a lot of dairy, but love the cup of tea with a meal!
