Easy Summer Recipes for those who are Lactose Intolerant #mc #BeyondLI #sponsored

Do you have anyone in your family who experiences discomfort after eating dairy foods? In my family, I'm the one who struggles with this gastric discomfort because I'm lactose intolerance. This type of sensitivity to dairy doesn't have to limit dairy because the LACTAID® Brand has a milk option that is real dairy. This allows me to incorporate the needed dairy into my diet without the discomfort. If you have someone who is lactose sensitive or intolerant, what do you use to provide with them the required dairy in their daily diet? I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for National Dairy Council and the LACTAID®Brand. I received product coupons from the LACTAID® Brand to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Summer Dairy Recipes

Did you know that there are between 30-50 million Americans believe to be lactose intolerant. Many of them, including myself have learned to cut out dairy from their diet to avoid the unwanted gastric symptoms. This avoidance isn't necessary.  According to the National Dairy Council our diet would be missing key nutrients without dairy. Did you know that milk provides 9 essential nutrients including protein, calcium as well as vitamins A & D? These nutrients are key for strong bones, muscle contraction, healthy nervous system as well as aid in the building and repair of muscle tissue. 

Since being a young adult I was thrilled to know of the LACTAID® Brand products to give me the needed nutrients without the gastric symptoms. Some of their products include pills, milk, cottage cheese and ice cream. These products provide the same nutrients with the added natural enzyme lactase which can help diary digestion and prevent the unwanted gastric symptoms. 
Lactaid Milk

I personally love the LACTAID® Calcium Enriched Fat Free Milk because it provides me with protein, vitamins A & D and even more calcium to make sure my body is getting the required daily needs met. I consider this a very important part of my healthier lifestyle especially with my exercise schedule. I use this milk in my after gym protein shakes or anywhere milk is needed in a recipe. The LACTAID® website also has tasty recipes which would be great for summer such as Berry Custard Brûlée, Lemon Ginger Pudding and Fresh Mango Frappe

Do you use the products with recipes? On the other side of these questions I'd also love to know if you don't use these products and if you want to try them for yourself or a loved one. If so, which one.
