Yummy Lactose-free Options!

Hi everyone!

So as some of you know (or may have caught on from the food posts), I am lactose-intolerant. I'm always on the look out for tasty dairy-free food and I thought I should share some with you all!

Dairy-- although high in calcium is often tied in with skin problems. If you have been facing blemishes and acne for some time but have not tried cutting out dairy from your diet, you should try it out!! :) I've heard it works wonders for many many people.

So... I am often looking for something with a rich and fluffy texture that is close to ice cream or whipped yogurt.. but of course, I can't have any of that!

I was food shopping the other day and found out that Kozy Shack now has dairy free tapioca/rice pudding.  I tested it out and it tastes EXACTLY the same as the regular one. So if you like pudding, you should try it out. :)

I guess the biggest problem with being lactose-intolerant is not being able to drink milk.
I kept thinking lactose-free products would all taste nasty but to my surprise, I like lactaid milk more than regular milk.  It tastes smoother and cleaner... which sounds odd but there's a slight sweet freshness to lactaid products that I absolutely love. My whole family switched over to it after trying some of mine!

So I have yet to  try dairy-free cheese. I used to cook a lot of Italian food so I guess I should try looking for some cheese products the next time around to test it out.

Here's a good looking one:

I will test it out and let you know how I like it in the next post.

I just realized recently how I just live off of fruits and veggies when I should probably look into all these cool products. I wasn't born lactose-intolerant but developed it after I got a scratch in m small intestine. If you are lactose-intolerant like myself or know someone who is, feel free to share about products you know of or want to test out!

Cheers,
Dana

  1. This is a great post! My son, who was diagnosed with severe eczema at six weeks old, was also allergic to dairy. He's grown out of the allergy, but if he has too much dairy in one day, it greatly affects his skin. I will have to look into these product. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm lactose intolerant and, in addition to that, my stomach is extremely sensitive to carbs. There are a lot of things I can't eat...

    Where I live we have tons of different lactose free products, even icecream and yoghurt and stuff, I've yet to try those though, as I'm not entirely sure whether it's lactose or milk protein that I'm sensitive to. I used to drink lactose free milk and I agree with you, it's actually a lot better than the "normal" one, sadly it's also a lot more expensive.

  3. Anny!

    Yes, I wish they had cheaper products... I guess it makes sense since it's more natural and healthier for you!
