Incompatible Food Chart: Dairy Foods

Today I will share the compatibility of dairy with other food. Cause dairy intolerances are so common that some of us forgot the amazing taste and benefits of an organic, grass-fed, fair farming dairy. Dairy is a big subject, needs pages to talk about, especially how to find a good source where you know animals are treated well rather than with cruelty. 

If you can find but have digestion problems, try to combine in the right way and see how your digestion reacts.
