A roundup of healthy recipes that use dairy, like cheese, milk, and yogurt, for National Dairy Month! Low-fat, high protein, calcium rich meals & snacks to incorporate into your daily eats.
June does not only mark the official start of summer (in my opinion, at least!), but also it’s the start of National Dairy Month! A whole month dedicated to delicious dairy-filled foods and recipes. I can get on board with this because dairy is a daily part of my diet and a great source of protein for me! It also provides calcium, vitamin D, and potassium. Plus it comes in so many forms, making it incredibly versatile for cooking and baking with.
I know a lot of people are sensitive to dairy or have lactose intolerance, but fortunately I’ve been blessed with a stomach of steel. 😉 Mac and cheese is my pre-race meal of choice, I eat MULTIPLE servings of greek yogurt a day, and cottage cheese is a staple too. Sure I use non-dairy milks because I prefer their taste and like dabbling with vegan cheeses every now and then, but personally I can’t see excluding dairy from my diet anytime soon.
With that said, I always try to choose organic and go for brands that treat their animals humanely. It’s important to be an informed consumer, ya know?
Now let’s get into the celebration! Time to acknowledge all things DAIRY!
