I just started using coconut milk (the So Delicious version) and find it to be a much more satisfying milk replacement than other options. It acts more like real milk in recipes too. Not that I'm going vegan, but I definitely need to stay light on dairy.

People ask similar questions about wheat-based dishes. I have missed a few things like pizza and the convenience of sandwiches, but found a great substitute for those finally. Otherwise, there's so much that's naturally gluten-free; it just takes a little thought and a little more preparation. Much, I imagine, like being vegan.

I agree with you on the So Delicious--I use it all the time in recipes and it works so much better than soy milk.

I was just talking about the gluten-free thing this past weekend with my FIL's partner. He switched to gluten free diet a few months ago because he has an intolerance to gluten and casein. He finds the same problem--adapting and explaining to people about the limits and issues with the diet.
