How Do Milk Alternatives Measure Up?

Milk Alternatives

Milk Alternatives

Cow’s milk is an excellent source of calcium, a nutrient you need for strong bones. Not a big milk drinker? Non-dairy milks are a good choice if you have dairy allergies, lactose intolerance or a vegan diet. Even if you don’t have a special reason, you might enjoy the taste of soy and other nondairy milks made from nuts, grains or seeds.

Look closely at the carton before you buy. Choose milk substitutes that are fortified with calcium and essential vitamins. Also select unsweetened milks instead of sweetened and flavored milks. Sweetened milk beverages are loaded with added sugar and calories.

St. Patrick’s Day Recipes for Vegans

St. Patricks Day Recipes for Vegans

St. Patrick's Day Recipes for Vegans

I will highlight colcannon, but a vegan version. Colcannon normally features cabbage, but this recipe from Vegan Yum Yum calls for kale instead.

Add little bits of seitan to take the place of salt pork. But just as you can make non-vegan colcannon without the pork, you can make this vegan version without the seitan. Only toss it in when you happen to have it on hand.

If you want to make a different amount, these proportions work well: 4 parts potatoes, 4 parts uncooked, chopped kale, 1 part seitan.
