The amount of dairy that I used to eat was ridiculous. I absolutely love milk, cheese, and of course, ice cream. Somewhere around my 31st birthday, I developed a slight sensitivity to dairy products. I would like to thank my Mom for this since she can’t drink milk. Thanks Mom!
It’s difficult to change your way of eating when it’s something you have done for 30 years. All I could think was, how will I every survive! At one point I thought I might die from malnutrition. Okay so maybe I am exaggerating just a tiny bit but, it sure did feel that way at the time. Like most of my generation, we grew up drinking milk with every meal. Soda was never an option except for “special” occasions. Unless I am eating out, I drink milk with just about every meal.
We all love our dairy. How would most women survive without ice cream and butter? Statistics have shown that many Americans consumption of things like whole milk and butter have declined. However, the increase of cheese and ice cream have gone up. Swapping out one high fat food for another are we? Sure we are but sometimes, who cares!
What are the benefits to eating dairy? Important nutrients like protein, calcium, magnesium, folate, B1, B2, B6, B12, and vitamins A, D, and E, according to the National Dairy Council. The burning question is, how can you get everything you need from dairy when you can’t consume it?
Everyone deserves to have those experiences without discomfort. That’s why LACTAID® Brand has worked for over 30 years to introduce high quality products that help those with lactose intolerance enjoy all of the health benefits of dairy—and all of those deliciously simple moments.
The The LACTAID® Brand began in the 1970s. And today, we´re the most trusted lactose free brand. We invite you to learn why.
Cooking my favorite recipes was one of the biggest challenges I faced. Milk is an ingredient in many of the things that I cook on a regular basis. I don’t write recipes down because my Nana taught me to cook. The few that I have are already posted on the site. I am, what my Nana called me, a “wing it cooker”. This has become a pain over the years because I never make anything the same way twice. Any recipe that I make, that contains less than 1/2 cup of Milk, I substitute LACTAID®. Some examples are, my homemade pierogies and my Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. When I posted the cookie recipe, it was an old recipe so there is no milk included. The last 4 times I have made them, I have added 2 teaspoons of LACTAID®. It’s sounds odd but it gives them a little extra something.
Here is a recipe for some Creamy Herbed Chicken!
