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.

Three-Course Dairy- and Gluten-Free Dinner

"A deliciously light healthy meal" is the article called this complete dinner, created by Maria Cachia.

The starter, a delicate pumpkin soup which may be served either hot or cold with Parmesan shavings is the perfect comfort food especially coming in after the cold and rain.

With Dean Martin’s let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, softly playing in the background we moved onto the main course, tuna steaks marinated in a mustard sauce which went perfectly with the roasted green and orange peppers offering a balance between the two.

To finish off the great evening, the dessert, a wonderful apple crumble with vanilla pods and small blobs of custard was the perfect end to the dinner, without leaving you feeling too full or bloated but comfortably satisfied.

The complete recipes for the dinner can be found in the article.

Translations into American:
Aubergine = eggplant.
Courgettes = zucchini.
Castor sugar = superfine sugar.

Skip the parmesan shavings. And doubly note that goat's butter is exactly as much dairy and lactose as cow's butter. Somebody must have hit Ms. Cachia over the head with bad British nutritional advice. Stick to dairy-free margarine.
