    No dairy in this house. It is a medical issue. Also the amount of calcium in dairy is not that much, in the case of cream cheese or cream there is more fats.

    The components in dairy milk and cheese outweigh the calcium intake. In fact, there have been some studies done recently that suggest a certain protein in dairy may be counter active with the absorption of the calcium in the body. Unfortunately, the dairy industry has also added sugar to dairy products, making the product a no-no for health conscience people. The ther issue is with trying to find information on dairy products. The industry has a death grip on health care professionals as well as advertisers. For example, 1 cup of almonds has 100 mg more calcium than 1 cup of milk, but my doctor never tells me to eat almonds instead of milk. lol

    Mashed potatoes will not work in the blender because the blades release the starch which makes it more of a paste instead of the nice, fluffy, mashed potatoes you want.
