Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or 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.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Blog

One of the Gaggle of Girls on the North Shore has a family with gluten and casein allergy issues.

She's just posted part 1 in a series: "Starting to eat a Restricted Diet."

If you are just starting a restricted diet, everything looks overwhelming. That’s why most people suggest following a simple diet - protein, starch, vegetable, fruit. Roasted chicken served with sweet potato and roasted vegetables is safe for most restricted diets (drizzle olive oil & kosher salt on the chicken & vegetables), as is a grilled steak, salad, and hand-cut steak fries. For a vegetarian option, a nice lentil soup or tofu stir fry (watch out for wheat in the soy sauce, though!) is also easy and safe for most restricted diets.


Most food can be made safe for your diet - you just have to try.
