Hi all

I have heard that the best tasting almond milk is the one made by the folks that sell those little can's of almonds, Blue Diamond or something like that. If you get the unflavoured low fat one has only like 40 calories.

Good luck all, certainly this IBS thing is hard to get around. I'm just recovering from my latest round, and that's going much better for the tummy, but my back is still out. Onto the chiro again today, crossing my fingers as I need to get to the gym.

Have a great Tuesday everyone. The weather forecast is yucky again all week, but I can't complain when I look at Joplin, my dear, the devastation. My heart goes out to all involved.

Okay, I just looked up Wendy's Frosty ingredients (which I got just the basic from Wendy's website). They always advertise it as dairy free, but it says it is made with real milk. So I don't know what they are talking about, but it is not as it is advertised, at least around here.

McDonald's vanilla ice cream is gluten free--vanilla ice cream usually is gluten-free. I think I should have the blood test to see if I have celiac disease. Maybe I don't really have IBS but hae celiac disease? Worth a try...

Wendy's frosty is gluten-free, but not sugar-free or dairy-free. McDonald's soft serve is fat free. Still researching...

I thought of the Almond Milk, but was a bit leary of it because I read a blog that described it and it sounded awful. Maybe if I find a very small container of it I will try it.

Does anyone know what Wendy's frosties are made from? They are supposed to be dairy free. I wonder if that is the same thing that McDonalds soft serve is made of.

I take the Digstive Advantage for IBS. I drink lactose free milk and find that I can eat cheese, have baked goods that have regular milk in it but cannot eat regular ice cream. Only if it is a McDonald's soft serve cone after I have eaten a meal! Wonder what is in those soft serve comes that makes them so special in that I can have one of those and not feel sick???

You could try other milk alternatives such as almond milk, rice milk, hemp milk, or coconut milk. I typically use the unsweetened vanilla almond milk for just about any use of dairy. I try to have some plain alternative milk on hand as well for making dishes where you use a lot of milk and having the extra vanilla flavor isn't a good thing. I find the hardest thing to give up for lactose intolerance is cheese. I am currently taking the Digestive Advantage for Lactose Defense to see if that helps but I haven't tried challenging it with any dairy yet other than hidden milk/dairy.

I don't know anything about the raw milk, either, though I did have some when I was down in Lamar (way back when). I don't think they are allowed to sell it anywhere in Colorado anymore. I didn't know they were allowed to sell it anywhere in the U.S. If that would help I would find a place to get it.

I looked at several different things and thinking of different things I use in cooking and a lot of them have dairy products in them (though not as many as have soy). I am wondering how to do some of the cooking without using at least some dairy at different times. I eat a lot of chicken, but I can't handle it just plain with seasonings because it gets so dry. So I sometimes use Ragu sauces or Cream of Chicken or Mushroom soup. I also like to make the Butter Chicken that they have on Spark People and that calls for butter and yogurt. It just seems that no matter what I end up getting told I can't eat anything.

Hi there everyone,

I've heard that people are drinking raw milk. I don't know enough about it to do it, especially with large farms pesticides etc, things that just make me wonder. I have had the lactose free milk and my daughter uses it, lasts a long time moreso than regular milk, wonder why?

If anyone else pops in and knows more on it, luv to hear.

Karen

I heard from some friends that if you are lactose intolerant, try raw cow's milk because it has not gone through all the processing like regular milk or goat's milk. I just buy the lactose free milk because it is at the store where I shop for other groceries. Hate to make special trips to other stores! Ask or try this options...

Like you I can't have soy either, and it's everywhere you look, in your bread and everything processed, and if you care to really look it's mind blowing. I even wrote to Lean Cuisine and told them, what about us, we can't do soy, but all I got back was a note saying it was an economically good way to add protein into their food.

Mind you I don't do frozen dinners, but I guess it made me a bit sore at them when they put a breast cancer logo on their dinners and people who have or are survivors should not have soy. My issue is IBS and soy kills that plus I had a precancerous thryoid tumour removed and still have thyroid issues and it is not recommended that you have soy with this either.

As far as lactose is concerned I take an extra strength lactaid before my yogurt and add the drops into any milk or cream (lite) that I drink. Webber has a natural lactase for 1/2 the price of the brand name if you can find it. Exact same ingredients. So dairy is not an issue as long as I stick to the rules. Also I stay away from chicory and inulin, kills my innards!

Good luck, cu around.

My doctor told me to try going lactose free for a month. Of course, I had just bought some yogurt for breakfast drinks (fortunately I could freeze that). Is there anything in the processing of yogurt that would make it okay for someone who cannot have lactose? Or is that completely out, too? I did get some Lactaid tablets and got some lactose free milk today for use when I need milk to make anything. I don't know if that will work to make yogurt or not. Milk or cream is called for in so much that I am finding this really restricting and haven't even gotten started on it yet. I cannot have soy due to the type of cancer I had.
