written by KEELY GEIST

Planning out a meal is much more complex than finding something that’s just delicious; when satisfying cravings, it’s important to find something that makes us feel good, too. As someone with a complicated love-hate relationship with dairy, I know this struggle all too well. In the evenings, I am constantly seeking dinners that do not weigh me down and make me feel sluggish for the entire rest of the night, and I know I’m not alone.
