Many adults no longer have the enzymes to process dairy.

As I get older dairy affects me more. I think this year I will go for some of those low lactose options. That salad sounds like a wonderful start. I also checked out that Podcast letmypeopleeat.com It has a ton of great information.

?These articles are dangerous and misleading. All food in moderation is good for you. This article can contribute to people avoiding milk which is necessary for strong bones and teeth. Every few years another car comes along and people jump on it. I drank 3 cups of milk as a child and still try to balance my diet with dairy products I am 71 and weigh what I did at 19. Exercise regularly. I fell last year and the only thing that kept me from breaking my back was my strength.

I am so sorry you had a fall and wish you a refuah shelamah! As a holistic nutritionist I never ask people to cut out entire food groups unless they show a need to do so. More and more research is indicating that the best way to grow strong bones is not necessarily through excessive dairy consumption. I hope you try the salad which does include cheese! Have a beautiful yom tov!

Huh?

How does eating salad by itself help “grow strong bones”? At 71 I doubt anyone’s “growing” strong bones. Struggling to maintain bone density, perhaps, but surely not growing ones that are weak with age. And why do you assume the poster doesn’t already “try” salad?

As a child I loved and consumed so much dairy but have become less tolerable in recent years. I’ve come to realize that eating low lactose options as you suggest is really the way to go! Can’t wait to serve your delicious salad over Yom Tov!

It is all about listening to your body and knowing what works and what doesn’t work! I hope you had a beautiful holiday with all of your family and had plenty of good food 😉

Great advice!

Thanks Jill for bringing this to my attention. I will start paying more attention to my gut reaction from dairy products high in lactose. Have a good Yom Tov!
Love a SW fan 😉 lol!

Up with dairy, be it cows, goats or sheep

Hello from South Africa I believe that part of the problem is the consumption of the dead white liquid that is sold in the shops. Raw dairy from grass fed animals does not cause problems in by far the most cases. Another part of the problem is the high percentage of processed/refined foods that many eat. Dairy is given the blame while all kinds of unhealthy foods, causing most of the problems, go Scott free! Also look at common sense and history- many traditional cultures have used dairy as an important part of their diet and dertainly benefited from it!… Read more »

Hi! I totally agree with you! I am always telling people to eat the whole egg (not just the whites) and don’t go for the milk that has had the fat removed. G-d created these foods perfectly as they are from those animals and we should not be messing with them.
