10 Best Gluten & Dairy Food Substitutions

With all the processing and preservatives added to foods over the past few decades, it’s no surprise that more and more people are developing gluten and dairy intolerances (ie: the inability to digest and properly process). The good news is that with this growing demand, there are a plethora of new products on the market so that we don’t have to abandon our favorite meals.

Here are some of my favorite substitutes that up-play giving your body the protein and fiber it craves without sacrificing flavor:

Instead of…                 Try…

Flour Pasta                 Seapoint Farms Edamame Noodles or Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta

Cheese                         Diaya Mozzarella or Follow Your Heart Cheddar (it melts, too!)

Tortillas                      Blue Dragon Rice Wraps

Orzo Pasta                  Seeds of Change brown rice and quinoa

Whey Protein            Orgain Vegan Protein Powder (in chocolate or vanilla!)

Milk                             Blue Diamond Almond Breeze or Cashew Milk

Wheat Bread             Udi’s Gluten Free Breads & Buns

Ice Cream                   So Delicious Cashew Nut Ice Cream or Coconut Bliss Ice Cream

  1. Hi Jenn, I’ll have to try the cheese and almond milk. The best gluten free, dairy free, nut free, soy free bread is Essential Baking Super Seeded Multigrain. My mom finds it at Costco stores in the mid-west for 8.99 for a 2 loaf package and stocks me up when she comes to visit as the Costco here in Phoenix doesn’t stock it. You might check in your area to see if they have it.
