I have an autoimmune disease and one of the issues I have as a result is hypercalcemia, or very high blood calcium. I have to be very careful with how much calcium I eat, and as a result, I have almost completely cut out dairy from my diet.
My doctor would like me to be on a diet similar to SBD (low on processed food, high on good fats, lean protein, complex carbs and fruits. I've read over a lot of the SBD recipes and meal plans and so many of them are dairy based. Is it possible to do this diet and not include a lot of dairy? Most non-dairy cheese/milk/ect is also off limits because it is enriched with calcium in the processing.
