Hiya, I’ve been allergic to dairy all my life. I think it’s easier now then it was when I was younger because there’s so many vegan foods and alternatives now a days. What specific foods are you looking for? I’ve found good alternatives for everything, except I don’t really have a cheese I like because I’ve never been that big on it. I say “good” alternatives but I’ve never tried most of the “real things” 😂 but I’d be more than happy to help give you alternatives for any food

Hi! 🤗
I'm also lactose intolerant, but I found out that only two years ago. I like dairy products, so for me to not eat them at all is pretty difficult 😅. For this reason, I always have tablets for lactose intolerants. I take them just before a meal or snack. It seems that these tablets work for me. Talking about alternatives, I like lactose-free yogurts and milk. These products are an even better taste for me than regular ones. It is a pity that they are expensive enough 😕

I use Aldi/Tesco/Sainsbury’s unsweetened almond milk but I have it with cereal or shakes or something, I don’t tend to drink it on its own cos I don’t really like the taste. If you’re looking for milk to hv w/tea or coffee I’ve heard oat milk is better but I don’t really drink tea/coffee. To get the cheapest milks get the shelf life ones because they are usually half the price and have a longer date and buy supermarket ones not branded look at all the free from isles and the vegan/plant based sections and if you want to save money look in frozen isles as usually cheaper 👍🏼 there’s loads of chocolates, ice creams now and Oreos are dairy free. I’ve always been dairy free so I don’t really miss anything 😂 but if there’s something you miss or can’t find an alternative for then just ask and I’ll be happy to help you find one
