Hubby has determined that lactose is what causes his tummy troubles. Having had a serious bout with lactose intolerance for my college years (and a few times after) I can sympathize to a degree. He is off all dairy - cow or goat, and lactose free. Even plain yogurt and Parmesan cheese! Good for him figuring it out - we knew this was a possibility after his last appointment. Weirdly for me mine resolved after having my kids - like pregnancy was a reset button.
Where that becomes a problem for me and the kids is cooking....no more homemade Mac&Cheese or casseroles involving cream of anything soup nights unless I feel like cooking 2 meals - seeing as those are my quickie dinners having to cook 2 doubles my time - not happening!
Now I have to figure out how to change over family favorites to satisfy all tummies and palettes. I'm up for the challenge - just not the griping and whining I will be subjected to as the family cook.
There's a little resentment too - since I never required a whole house change when I was doing weight watchers.
Now it's 2 kinds of butter in the house vegan spread $4/tub! (he likes it, I think it's NASTY tasting) and real butter in sticks. We tried this vegan 'mozzarella cheese'(another yuck from me and kids - he said it wasn't that bad). And 2 kinds of milk (cow & unsweetened almond).
I told him I'm not buying special ice cream - too bad, have a banana!
Anyone have some good swap outs for dairy in casseroles?
