My little grandson, who has severe dairy allergies, has a Soy Cheese - it is actually quite nice. He has Soy Ice Cream, and that is quite nice, too (not that I eat much of it.)

I am diary food intolerant, altho' I can tolerate tiny amounts of cow's milk, and can eat hard, tasty cheddar cheese, as well as some low-fat yoghurt, without problems.

Where it calls for dairy in your menu, just substitute - it's easy enough, but the calories may be a bit different. Also, check that your substitutes are a good source of protein and calcium.

We don't offer lactose-free meal plans. Here's why:

Sorry about that!

Hey sparkfriends,

I was just exploring the meal planning option, thinking of ways to simplify when life gets hectic. I notice there's no lactose-free option on the meal plans. Am I missing something? I find there's so much lowfat cheese in the plans that I can't really use them. The only cheese I can eat is goat cheese, and that's very hard to find in lowfat versions (though it is naturally lower in fat that cow's milk cheese).

thanks in advance!

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful. -Buddha
