Those with gluten intolerance often have other allergies to dairy and/or soy as well. Substitutions are a breeze with this cookbook. Allergic to dairy? Just substitute almond, rice, soy or hemp seed milk for cow’s milk. Instead of dairy-based cheddar or Swiss, use a substitute such as the products made by Follow Your Heart for cheese. Can’t tolerate corn? Simply substitute any other grain-flour. The recipes will still taste great – without the allergens. Still need help with substitutions to fit your dietary needs?
