Just thought I’d ask about paneer here. It’s a kind of cottage cheese that’s easy to make with milk and lemon juice, and contains only 1.2g of carbohydrate per 100g. That’s over 90% less than a Granny Smith apple, which can be allowed on phase 1.
I’ve heard the problem with dairy is in digesting the fat, but wouldn’t that make kefir, yoghurt, oil etc a problem, too? Are there any other reasons for avoiding non-aged cheeses? Is there something special about lactose in particular? Even 100g of turnip has 4g of sugar.
