There are very few foods that I do not particularly like and eggs is one of them. Growing up, our family would have egg night once a week as an economical dinner. The egg preparation I like is one that mixes eggs with veggies such as peppers, mushrooms, and onions such as a frittata or crustless Quiche. Work to minimize your consumption of dairy and eat no more than three eggs each week.
- Try unsweetened almond, soy, or coconut milk. Most of these contain as much protein as milk.
- Satisfy cravings with cheese made from grass-fed sheep’s or goat’s milk. Both pecorino and feta are rich and flavorful.
- Try small amounts of sheep’s or goat’s milk products like yogurt with no added sugars.
- If you must buy eggs, get only organic from cage-free chickens.
- Have a one-egg breakfast with fruit or other plant-based foods such as oatmeal.
- Substitute eggs with fruit or other plant-based foods such as 100% whole wheat bread.
- Use a quarter cup of applesauce or a small banana to substitute for one egg when baking.

I started using almond milk some years ago and I like it on oatmeal, in smoothies, and use it in place of cow’s milk in my kitchen.
