    Can you be primal and DAIRY FREE?!

    Shop Now
    I have food allergies. Gluten and Dairy. Primal is perfect for the gluten-free part of it all...But what about the dairy? Eating only Fruit, Veg and Meat doesn't sound all that bad.

    I have not gotten the book, yet. (Yes, I plan to!) This is all part of my pre-plan research. Thanks.

    I don't do dairy by choice except a very occasional bit of cheese. (although I'm considering adding some butter to cook with sometimes) Meat, veg, and fruit work perfectly for me so I don't see why it can't work for you.

    Of course! Many people are.

    You can be primal and 100% brussels sprouts free also But what would be the fun in that.

    I don't eat much dairy at all, maybe a bit of butter and some cheese sometimes. I eat a shit ton of fruit, veggies, and meat and I've seen great results, as have many others who eat a similar diet.
    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

    In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

    Absolutely. I tolerate dairy fairly well, and I do love raw milk, but it currently does not fit into my budget. The only dairy I eat regularly is grass-fed butter, and that can EASILY be replaced with another fat source. There is nothing "essential" about cheese, milk, cream, etc. It tastes great, but isn't pivotal in a healthful diet.

    Absolutely! I also have allergies and do not eat any dairy. It is not essential.

    Very little dairy here. Once in awhile for fun.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle

    I use butter/ghee and have a little cheese once in a while as a treat, but no other dairy beyond that. Lots of us are dairy-free or close to it.
