oh, yeah, someone brought up a good point. I have heard that the more aged the cheese is the less lactose it has. So like aged cheddars and parmesans are better options. Now I haven't confirmed that, so don't quote me :)
I have both. I like Silk Light Soymilk. I am ok with the vanilla flavor, but if your going to use it to cook then the vanilla flavored one won't work.
Also, I have found that a very small amount of cheese or something containing is ok, but if I do even a small amount too often it gets bad. I can't do yogurt, but I haven't gried Greek Yogurt. Also, they make pills that you can take that can help. The one I found is called Lactaid.
For breakfast I really like Kashi GoLean cereal with my soymilk. Cereal isn't always the most practical thing but I also enjoy the Carnation Breakfast drink mixes (they have a small amount of dried milk I think, but I haven't had a problem).
I became lactose intolerant my senior year of college. I like soymilk - but I like Almond milk better. Grocery stores are getting better about carrying it - also Rice milk is also good. I haven't tried hemp milk yet, but have heard good things. I don't like the vanilla flavors - I typically get the Rice Dream Enriched rice milk or the Silk Almond milk. Silk is thicker in my opinion if you used to drink a 1-2% and Rice is similar to a skim consistency. Typically you can find it near other milk replacement or some stores now carry the almond and soy milks in the dairy section.
For breakfast - I've been eating Fage or Chobani greek yogurts. Yogurt doesn't seem to bother me, but I don't stray from typically brands like this or yoplait. Another thing for breakfast that I like is whole wheat whatever (bread, tortilla shell, english muffin) and natural peanut butter. Several years ago I switched to the kind that is only peanuts and nothing else. I found two places in my town where you can use the grinder to make your own - kind of awesome. And then I have fruit with either option.
Feel free to message me if you have any other questions. :) not being able to drink milk or eat cheese, mayo, icecream, butter, etc etc is such a pain in the rear. Buy the smallest containers of the different milks to try and see which you like the best. You have to get the "tastes like milk" out of your head though and go in with an open mind. because this isn't milk milk :)

I had the flu two weeks ago, ever since then dairy sets my stomach off. Now, Iím a big cheese and yogurt person, so this if butting a cramp in my lifestyle. I was wondering if anyone has tried soy milk. Did you like it?
Since, I donít eat eggs (donít like the taste) Iím having a hard time finding breakfast food that I can eat during the weekdays. Weekends arenít a problem since I have more time to fit things.
