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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

Dairy Free Cooking: Tips on Healthy Eating Following Cancer

Lois Whittaker brings us a serious look at the often frivolous world of cooking in Dairy Free Cooking: Tips on Healthy Eating Following Cancer.

Product Description
This cookery book is full of tips and advice about adopting a dairy-free diet, what you can and can't eat and how to adapt recipes so that you can still enjoy chocolate, cakes and the occasional treat, as well as make great meals for all the family without constantly having to cook something separate for yourself. It includes over 50 delicious recipes from soups, starters and salads, risottos and pasta sauces, fish, meat, chicken - and of course a selection of delicious desserts. All the recipes use readily-available ingredients and are written in an easy step-by-step style. This is a real lick-the-spoon sort of cookbook to encourage people to get cooking! Why dairy free nutrition plays a big role in fighting cancer and cow's milk is increasingly being linked to certain cancers, due to the hormones and other growth factors found in milk. In addition lactose intolerance is on the rise, affecting 10 per cent of north Europeans and 50 per cent of Mediterraneans. This book shows how to eat dairy free and still enjoy those treats. No need to worry that you are missing out on key nutrients as these are widely available from plant sources. But what your diet will be lacking is saturated animal fat, animal protein, cholesterol, hormones and growth factors. Even for those who decide that a completely dairy-free diet is not for them, then cutting down on animal fats is a much healthier option.

About the Author
Lois Whittaker became interested in healthy eating after being advised to change to a dairy free diet, following breast cancer and she has been free of cancer now for two years. Much research followed, and then the fun bit - trying recipes to ensure they were not only healthy and nutritious, but also tasted good and were easy to make - the result is this friendly book.
