Updated with More eBooks! As many of you know, Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook is available both in print and as an ebook! But there are many ebook-only publications for the dairy-free community that don’t always get recognized. I wish I had the time to personally review all of the amazing dairy-free ebooks for you, but there are so many to choose from on this ever-expanding platform. Though I can’t cover every last one, this post will be a place to share the ones that I discover from reputable authors (feel free to bookmark as I will update periodically).
Dairy-Free eBooks from Holiday Indulgence to Diet Detox
In most cases, the following are available ONLY as eBooks:
Good Morning! Breakfasts is a personal favorite from vegan author, Ricki Heller. I struggle with creative breakfast and brunch ideas that are healthy without being boring, and this ebook delivers. From fluffy yet hearty pancakes to a savory basil pesto scrable. All of the recipes are not only vegan, but they are also gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and low to no sugar overall. Note that Ricki has a few other fabulous dairy-free ebooks, including Desserts without Compromise and Anti-Candida Feast. Price: $12.95
The New Green Juicing Diet does come as both a physical book and ebook, but the digital version is simply too good of a value to pass up. This well-detailed, extensive ebook on juicing covers more territory than I thought possible. Author Elizabeth Swan includes informational sections on the various foods, their nutritional value, how to prepare them, and combining. She expands on the benefits of juicing, buying a juicer, or simply blending – for those of us without the space for another appliance. And of course, there are the recipes: over 60 ways to get fruits and veggies into our bodies! Price: $2.99
Using Food and Nutrition to Improve ADHD and Autism by Julie Matthews is more of a health guide that covers diets such as the GFCF (gluten-free casein-free – casein is milk protein) as a therapy. She explains the science, including over 70 scientific references, in layman’s terms, while offering practical guidance on the various diets and good nutrition. Since Julie’s focus is often on kids, she even offers help for feeding picky eaters. This is a four part series guide that is laid out like a magazine with charts and images. Price: Free with email sign-up.
Crazy for Kale is an ode to a fabulously healthy, bone-building, dairy-free food. I’d be lying if I said I was a big kale fan, but Hallie Klecker spins this nutrient-dense green in so many unique ways, it’s hard not to find something that fits your taste. She covers everything from dinner (Southwest Burgers with Avocado Kale Slaw) to healthy desserts (Pistachio Banana Ice Cream – yes, with kale!). Price: $5.99
Twelve Terrific Detox Recipes by Stephanie Weaver is a delicious little collection of vegetable- and fruit-packed smoothies, soups, snacks, and other light meals. Not only are the recipes dairy-free, they are also gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, and sugar-free. The author also packs in flavorful “superfoods” like chia seeds, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, ginger, and maca for nutrient-dense combinations that are anything but boring. Sample recipe titles include Breakfast Toddy (a unique, warming tea blend), Pear Ginger Juice, Peach-Mango Power Smoothie, Spicy Kale & Split Pea Soup, and Chia-Almond Pudding. Price: $2.99
Fighting Your Food by Jody Lynn is a personal story of healing (from arthritis, ocular migraine, dizziness, and Fibromyalgia) through diet transformation. After sharing what she learned on her journey, Jody offers everyday living tips and 45 recipes made without dairy, gluten, soy, and GMO’s. Jody’s recipes have an easy, everyday feel, with standards like Brownies, Happy Muffins, Raspberry Jam, Sloppy Joes, Chicken Noodle Soup, and even seasoning blends. Keep in mind that this is not a scientifically vetted publication with references – rather a success meant to inspire and help others who may have similar woes. Price: $9.99
A Baker’s Dairy-Free Dozen by Cara Eisenpress is a beautifully illustrated book that is all about indulgence. The 13 dessert recipes – from comforting Crackly Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies to tea-worthy Glazed Lemon Olive Oil Cake – are each accompanied by a beautiful photo and use common ingredients for delights that are “just dairy-free” (yes, the magic of gluten and eggs are celebrated in this ebook). As a bonus, Cara includes two breakfast options (Glazed Orange Marmalade Muffins and Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Bars), taking the total recipe count up to a sweet fifteen. Price: $7.99
Beyond this list, most of the dairy-free books in our Book Reviews are also available as ebooks on Kindle (which can be downloaded to PC, too), including Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook and my other cookbook, Eat Dairy Free: Your Essential Everyday Cookbook.
