We had an outstanding Tuesday coaching call on March 15, 2016 with my friend and colleague Dr. Heidi Dulay. I love this woman! She is a truly a gift and a wealth of info. We discussed “Do Dairy or Dump Dairy?”
You can listen to the entire call in the audio player below:
Here is a list of the topics that we covered during the coaching call:
- Listen to your body
- GAPS Diet
- Pasteurized dairy vs raw. Avoid pasteurized dairy and choose organic and raw. If not raw, choose vat pasteurized: Saint Benoit Products
- Kefir* Best form of dairy: Make your own with raw milk (www.organicpastures.com)
- Yogurt- Make your own with raw milk (www.organicpastures.com)
- Butter – Ideally consume raw butter (www.organicpastures.com). Kerrygold butter from grass-fed cows is a good second choice.
- Cream – Only choose high fat, raw and organic. Great snack is to mix cream + vanilla + a few drops of liquid stevia. Ask for manufactured cream at coffee shops – less lactose (www.organicpastures.com)
- Ghee – No lactose. Good choice to start with.
- Hard cheeses are better than soft cheese.
- Whey – High in lactose.
- Sources of dairy: sheep & goat milk are generally best. Cow milk is hardest to digest.
- Bulletproof coffee – No need for Dave’s coffee but love the brain octane oil: Bulletproof Coffee
- Teas: choose loose leaf teas. Recommended: Matcha tea & Pu-erh tea
- You can gain and lose weight with dairy. Up the fat to lose weight. Yes…lose weight with more fat consumption. You can gain weight on too much dairy.
- Avoid homogenized and pasteurized dairy.
- I love this frother for bulletproof coffee: Milk Frother
