The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

Parma! Vegan Parmesan Cheese Replacement

Mike Adams of the Natural News raved about Parma! Vegan Parmesan, a non-dairy vegan parmesan cheese substitute.

It's sold in a shaker, just like conventional parmesan cheese, but it's made from plants, not dairy. Just pure, simple, all natural ingredients with no MSG or yeast extract.

The combination is shockingly similar to real parmesan cheese. Really, the taste will absolutely fool you. And here's a secret recipe I discovered that functions as a kind of "cheese replacement" in your cooking:

Just take several heaping spoonfuls of regular hummus (made from chickpeas), then sprinkle on a generous serving of this Parma! product. Mix it up with a fork and slather it on top of a corn tortilla covered with organic quinoa and spicy black beans. Pour some fresh salsa on top and sprinkle with fresh cilantro. You've got "cheese" tortillas!

Parma! comes in Original and Chipotle Cayenne flavors. You can find out more about the products and locations you can purchase it at the Eat in the Raw website.

I've been reading and hearing about quinoa for years, but never actually tasted it until last week. I saw a bag of organic quinoa at the grocery store and bought it on a whim. I like couscous, so I figured I would like this, too. I like it even more!
