A Yogurt for Those on a Restricted Diet
It has officially been one month since the launch of my cookbook, and I could not be happier with the wonderful reviews, kind words and support I have gotten from everyone.
The 30-Minute Thyroid Cookbook is entirely gluten-free and dairy-free as those foods are the most common asks with those seeking diet and lifestyle modifications.
I have throughly enjoyed seeing everyones’ pictures of the recipes they have made from the book, and I am always more than happy to help anyone who is looking for a product alternative while on a restrictive diet to uncover hidden food sensitivities.
One question I keep getting from readers is, “what would be an alternative to traditional dairy-based yogurt“? A good question, indeed. Yogurt is a wonderful staple in so many peoples’ diets. But for those who cannot have dairy, I find it necessary to have a delicious, plant-based alternative.
After trying many different plant-based yogurt alternatives on the market—soy-based, coconutmilk-based, and almondmilk-based—I have settled on a winner for both taste and texture: Good Plants™Almondmilk Probiotic Yogurt Alternative.
Dairy Free Almondmilk Probiotic Yogurt Alternative
I have tried many plant-based yogurt alternatives, and I can confidently say that the Good Plants™ has the most delicious taste and texture of the ones I’ve tried.
The product tastes just like the delicious vanilla yogurt you have previously enjoyed, with a smooth texture that does not separate.
Nutrition Benefits of Dairy Free Almondmilk Probiotic Yogurt Alternative
For my clients following a dairy-free, plant-based, or vegan diet, this product is a wonderful option as it is dairy free and vegan certified, and for those who are interested in the origins of their food, this yogurt alternative is Non-GMO Project Verified.

Along with taste and texture, Good Plants™Almondmilk Probiotic Yogurt Alternative shines in the nutrition department as well.
Compared to other almondmilk yogurt alternatives, Good Plants™contains 70% less sugar and 40% less calories while also serving up important probiotics and dietary fiber. Learn more about Good Plants™ here or check out some additional inspiration here.

The Health Benefits of Blueberries
Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits because they are absolutely delicious, but they are also extremely nutritious and can play an important role in maintaining an anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
There are two main types of blueberries: US highbush blueberries and low bush or “wild” blueberries. Compared to traditionally cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries have twice the amount of antioxidants per serving.
Antioxidants help to minimize the amount of free radicals found in the body and can even help to prevent cancer. Wild blueberries can also play an important role in many other health conditions, including diabetes management as well as gut and brain health. (1)
The Health Benefits of Almonds
Almonds—a delicious, edible tree nut—are a nutrient-dense nut that provides many important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. A single one-ounce serving of almonds provides a good amount of fiber (3.5 grams), 6 grams of plant-based protein, and 14 grams of the ‘good’ mono-unsaturated fats. (2)
Almonds are also rich in vitamin E, manganese and magnesium, as well as important nutrients like copper, vitamin B12, and phosphorous.
To Use Culinary Lavender
You may have only traditionally seen lavender used for decorations and for its unique, distinctive smell, but lavender can be used for culinary purposes as well. Lavender is part of the mint family and is edible.
When used in recipes, lavender can lend a delicate flavor. While the whole plant can be used for culinary purposes, the bud of the flower contains most of the sweet flavor and aroma.
