    Thanks for sharing so many great recipes.

    Also, I think your tip needs rework - butter is dairy too!

    I also (type 2diabetes) have really enjoyed recipes and informative posts.
    My problem is that I can't have (among other things) fermentation / molds which leaves out cheese, yogurt, sour cream, creme fraiche, vinegar & mushrooms.
    However there are still a lot of recipes without these things. Sometimes I just use heavy cream instead of cheese.
    My blood glucose improvement & lack of sugar craving have been the best thing!
    Thank you Diet Doctor!

    Most people who are dairy free can still tolerate butter as it doesn't have the lactose/milk sugar. If one is allergic to milk and has to avoid the proteins then they would definitely want to stay away from butter.

    If your allergic to the milk in butter, make ghee.
