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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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

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,
