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.

Sharing Favorite Vegan Cookbooks

Grant Butler of The Oregonian decided to go vegan and then stumbled unknowing into the vegan cookbook section at a large bookstore, suffering immediately from eyeball-bulging choice overload.

A book he especially likes is one I haven't mentioned, The Urban Vegan, by Dynise Balcavage. He wrote:

It leaves out the food politics of being vegan -- there's plenty of that elsewhere -- and instead gets right into 250 recipes. Many of them are tagged with handy icons indicating which dishes are inexpensive, low-fat, kid-friendly and fast. While the weather's still cold, I'll make Tuscan Braised Beans and Hot & Sour Coconut Soup. And I'll pick out something from the "House Party" chapter to bring to a friend's vegan potluck next week. Also useful for vegan beginners: lists of kitchen gadgets that can speed up the cooking process, and shopping lists for vegan ingredients, something I used when I made my first run for vegan groceries.

Butler also asked readers to share their favorite cookbooks, which is a great idea. If you have some you'd like more people to know about please leave a comment.
