Going dairy-free can be really hard. I've definitely learned that in the past few years. In my mid-twenties I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy. And not a "don't eat cheese or you'll get a tummy ache" allergy. It's a "carry an EpiPen everywhere I go" allergy. It's been brutal. I deeply miss so many foods I used to eat all the time, but in the past few years, I've found some staples that have made the transition a little bit easier.

Whether you are going dairy-free yourself due to an allergy or dietary change, or you're trying to cook for a friend, here are some of the dairy-free favorites I've found around the St. Cloud area.
