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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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.

Interactive Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Meal Planning Website

Just announced via press release, an interactive website that promises those with our special diet needs not just menus that they can use, but complete grocery lists and shopping plans.

Preparing allergy-friendly meals that are healthy and well balanced is quick and simple thanks to from Seattle entrepreneur NJ Shelsby. The interactive website takes the stress out of planning, shopping, and cooking wheat free, gluten free and dairy free dinners. With flexibility to fit everyone's unique needs, users can plan meals for the week in 15 minutes, shop once a week, and cook great tasting specialty dinners in about 30 minutes.

"NJ has created one of the most useful websites around," says Angela Pifer, Creator and Owner, Nutrition Northwest, Corp. "I regularly refer my patients to her website for easy to follow healthy recipes. They always return from their experience with glowing reviews."

Meal plan options include:

• Allergy-Friendly - Free of common allergens, such as wheat, dairy, corn, and soy. Most recipes are also gluten free.
• Lighter Fare - Less filling, focuses on veggies, seafood & chicken.
• Healthy Balance - Based on the American Heart Association's® Heart-Healthy Diet guidelines, incorporating lots of whole grains and portion sizing.

Users logging in to are presented with five completely customizable suggestions for the week. Nights may be switched around, dishes replaced with personal favorites, and portion sizes changed. After tailor fitting the menu to meet each user’s schedule and needs, recipes and shopping lists are automatically updated.

Merging recipe directions into one easy-to-follow set of instructions ensures that a healthy dinner makes it onto the table as quickly as possible. Most dinners are designed to be prepared in 30 minutes or less.

Of course there's a catch. costs money.
For only $24.95 a month, you get a meal plan every week featuring naturally healthy meals comprised of fresh vegetables and herbs, whole foods, and unrefined grains like millet and quinoa.

There are also allergy-friendly options with recipes that are wheat free and dairy free. Use the plans “as-is” or change them easily to fit your family: move dinners around, pick other dishes from our recipe database, or change serving sizes.

Still, the convenience and guidance might be worth the cost to you. Let me know what you think.
