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.

The Intolerant Family Cookbook

No family's cooking is like any other family's cooking. That's the big lesson I've taken from the millions of mothers who have confronted the problem of allergies and intolerances in their own households and found none of the hundreds of cookbooks already on the market suitable.

Nancy Strohs of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote Family learned to tolerate food intolerances about Ellen Fitzgerald, who within two years found she was both lactose and gluten intolerant, and her daughter Molly Lepeska, who got a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.

They self published The Intolerant Family Cookbook: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Family Friendly Food.

The 120 or so recipes, a mix of family favorites and recipes adapted from food magazines such as Bon Appetit, are not intended to comprise a comprehensive collection for all occasions and tastes. Recipes are arranged under appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, veggies, breads and desserts. The authors worked especially hard on the starters.

Recipes in their book marked with a "faster than takeout" carryout box require less than 45 minutes to prepare.

You can order the book from their website,
