Inside: Can you eat dairy-free while following the Trim Healthy Mama diet? While it can be a challenge, I hope the following this dairy-free Trim Healthy Mama meal plan will encourage you that it is possible!
When I first heard about the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan back in 2013, I fell in love with the concept. But my initial excitement faded when I read the book and realized that so many of the recipes included dairy.
At the time, our children and I were all dairy free.
I’ll admit: Back then, I simply gave up.
However, since then, many more dairy-free products have come on the market, and eating dairy free has become easier. I’ve also learned that when there is a will, there is often a way.
I hope that the following one-week dairy-free Trim Healthy Mama meal plan will give you some meal ideas and inspiration to eat the Trim Healthy Mama way–while also maintaining a dairy-free lifestyle!
A few quick notes:
If you’ve read the Trim Healthy Mama Plan book, you know that it’s vital to switch up fuels every three hours. You will see this reflected in my meal plan. Remember to space at least 3 hours in between fuels unless you are pregnant or nursing!
Several of the linked recipes require modifications to make them dairy-free. I have made note of these modifications in this meal plan.
Without further ado, enjoy!
