Vary our nutrition is essential, the habit to the consumption of milk and dairy products since childhood, can cause problems reaction to milk.
Replace cow’s milk with milk from other animal species is not always the solution recommended by our doctor.
The lactose-free milk products are not suitable for those who are hypersensitive to milk proteins, these products do not contain lactose (the milk sugar) but the milk proteins are still present.
The plant milks used in rotation, without exclusivity for any type of milk can replace dairy products with creativity guaranteeing body the variety of nutrients it needs.

Also the doses change: keep in mind that the proportion changes 100 grams of butter correspond to 75 grams of oil.
