It is time for my update on the 30-day dairy-free challenge.
As my primal eating has evolved, I have transitioned to a more minimalist diet, preparing simple meals with very few ingredients. This has become especially true over the winter months, since I try to buy local, and very little is in season. I figured eliminating dairy would only be natural, to further simplify my diet. The end result has been substituting more coconut oil and the often-neglected jar of red palm oil in my cabinet. Red palm oil is difficult to find, but if you ever stumble across any, I would recommend it as another excellent source of fat. As for coconut oil, entire books have been written about the myriad benefits of this superfood.
Conclusion: Similar to Chuck, I am not sure if eliminating dairy has produced any health benefits, but with numerous other options for fat intake available, I plan to continue the 30-day challenge, and possibly make dairy-free a permanent dietary choice.
