Over 100 tempting, easy recipes for managing milk allergy and lactose intolerance with up-to-date information on dairy-free diets.
When you think of comfort foods, who doesn't think of apple pie and ice cream, macaroni and cheese, cookies dipped in milk, or perhaps pizza with extra cheese? We all grew up hearing how milk is our best source of calcium and our primary defense against osteoporosis. It is tough to imagine such a "healthy food" causing problems for anyone. However, about 75% of people around the world are unable to digest dairy products, and at least 1% of adults have an allergy to milk proteins.
If you're someone who has to avoid dairy products, you can still enjoy all the richness and flavor of your favorite dishes with these delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes. In addition, nutrition expert Brenda Davis will help you:
* find out whether you have lactose intolerance or a dairy allergy;
* learn to recognize those not-so-obvious dairy ingredients in prepared foods;
* discover the vast array of convenient nondairy substitutes and learn how to use them.
Ms. Davis also explains why getting enough calcium doesn't depend only on how much calcium you eat but how much you retain. Learn which calcium supplements are best, which foods will rob you of calcium, and which foods are calcium powerhouses.
