I would like to cut out meat (for health reasons)
However, I'm allergic to cheese and yoghurt
Can any veggies out there let me know if it's possible/give me some cheese less recipes?
Many thanks

If you look for vegan recipes, you'll find plenty!

definitely do able but you may struggle in restaurants
eg
starter- goats cheese tart
main- caneloni stuffed with ricotta and spinach
dessert- cheesecake/other creamy stuff

come chefs just don't think it through!

I had IBS-type symptoms for years, and then realised they vanished when I cut out dairy. I'm a vegetarian anyway so it made sense to just follow vegan recipes.

It's made me more creative with cooking, and it got my weight under control grin

We rarely eat out tbh but yes that thought did occur to me sad
I couldn't be vegan - I love eggs to much smile
Dont drink milk anyway (makes me sick)
My dh and ds1 love meat but ds2 is veggie

I quite like white fish

Yes my dad cut out meat and dairy, also oil.

If out he eats fish, and is slxk with the oil, so he eats in Indian restaurants when out. That said vegan cafes are popping up which makes life easier.

Yep I'm a lactose intolerant vegetarian.

I make a lot of meals just dairy free with almond milk instead. Coconut milk is also good for cooking.

There are some vegan cheeses bit stay away from the ones in Holland & Barrett.

I just take vitamins & eat veg that has loads of calcium like tofu.
It means a lot of home cooking but I love that & eating out is easier than you think.

Im afraid im a bit of a pain in that i hate coconut!!
Ditto milk substitutes <Vom>
I have no issue not eating cheese or having milk as I don't really like either but I do like meat sad
However, I need to eat more veg and fruit and I would like to see if cutting out meat helps my ibs
