Don’t let milk spoil your breakfast! Lactose Free breakfast ideas!

Many people are lactose intolerant, i know all too well because my sister and i have the same problem! (not so bad for me though!) Looking at the many breakfast recipes, there is almost always a dairy product there. Then we always get a fear that eating this or eating that will cause us stomachaches later in the day. (We stay clear of dairy well before an exam! That would be worse case scenario!)bottle-841433_1280

There are many substitutes available for dairy products. For milk you could substitute for soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. There are also diary free cheeses that are made from almond, soy and rice.
Not forgetting yogurt, there are also alternatives made from rice and soy. (fitday) For butter, there is something called ‘ghee’ which Indian butter which has little to no lactose! (livestrong)
