Hi Leanne,

On a related note, can you recommend a dairy-free replacement for the ricotta and cottage cheeses? I’ve been using soy or coconut yogurt instead but not sure if that would be really appropriate. Also, a lot of the dairy-free cheeses are made from coconut oil and the nutritional profile would be quite different from normal cheese (e.g. when subbing in for “low fat cheddar cheese” or mini Babybels). Any suggestions for swaps for those?

Thanks in advance. I should have asked this far earlier, considering we’re now up to week 12 (11 for me having started a week later).
