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 and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

My old website can be found at

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.

Two More Vegan Cookbooks

The Associated Press did an article on two recently published vegan cookbooks.

The first is by the busy and prolific Donna Klein. I've done two posts about earlier cookbooks of hers, The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Kitchen in 2007 and Vegan Italiano in 2006.

Her latest is The Tropical Vegan Kitchen

which offers 225 recipes from Africa, the Caribbean, Southeast and South Asia, and Latin America.

There is plenty to love here — Trinidad-style Curried Mashed Potatoes; Malaysian Hot-and-sour Noodles with Tofu and Baby Bok Choy; and Papaya, Jicama and Avocado Salad with Sour Orange Dressing.

Nava Atlas' Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons, a veganized version of her earlier Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons. The article called it more conventional comfort food than you'll find in Klein's book.
Atlas walks home cooks through the seasons, offering Curried Red Lentil Stew and Chickpea and Tahini Soup in fall, Taco Soup and Minestrone in winter, plus a host of offerings for the warmer months.

You'll find a macaroni and "cheese" recipe in the article at the link.
