I would really love to be able to eat a bowl of cereal without becoming sick. I am lactose intolerant, does anyone have any opinions on the alternatives to milk? If and when I have milk I prefer 2%. I do not like thick coating that you get with dairy sometimes. I am afraid to try anything new for fear it will be thick. Are soy or almond milks good? Are they thick? Which is better? ie. lowest fat and calories? Help please as I struggle with breakfast options.

I like Silk Light Vanilla. I've also heard Almond Breeze is great, but haven't tried it. My advice is to just take the plunge and buy some and try it.

I don't like soy milk (unfortnately, since it has more protein) but I do like almond and coconut milk. Do some experimenting and see what you like. Almond milk is definitely easier to find still than coconut milk. There are also varieties of almond, soy and rice milk that don't require refrigeration, which is very convenient. I've also heard of oat milk and hemp milk, but have not tried either. Lots of options!

While I'm not lactose intolerant I just don't like milk and neither does my family. I've tried Soy but my family preferes Almond milk. If you are near a Trader Joes I suggest getting it from there. It can be significantly cheaper.

Hi, I have found that my favourite non-milk option is almond breeze, however I do prefer to bake with regular soy milk like so good fat free. Rice milk is an aquired taste and hemp milk in my humble opinion is just nasty.
I was however wondering if you have tried any of the lactose free products that are available. Nutrell Lactose reduced skim milk used to be one of my favourites until I gave up all dairy.
Good luck with your search....

Probably hard to find but many people who are lactose intolarant can tolerate raw milk due to active/living digestive enzymes that help with digestion. These enzymes are destroyed during the pasturization process.
for some good information.
I live in CA and we have
milk available at some of the health food stores.

I too like Silk Vanilla Light. I can have any dairy but milk, I just can't stomach it. But I love any kind of Silk, but to keep the calories down I only buy the light.

I'm not lactose intolerant but, my hubby is. He started buying Almond Breeze Vanilla. OMG is it good. It is so awesome on cereal or by itself. I can't even stand the taste of regular milk now. The soy vanilla milk is good also.

I've been lactose Intolerant for many years, and after experimenting with a lot of products, I found that Silk Vanilla is my favorite. I do not drink it too often though as unfermented soy is not the best option. Hemp milk would be a healthier option, as it has the right balance of fatty acids and lots of protein, but I agree with Pam-u-la, I do not like the taste of it. Almond, rice, oat, etc are OK, but too watery. I found out that it is some times easier to just find "other" foods you enjoy, then try to substitute for foods you are intolerant too.
You can try raw milk, but I cannot tolerate it either. I actually first realized that I was lactose intolerant when we were vacationing in the country, and I got access to really good quality raw milk. As I enjoyed milk very much, I made sure I had some every day, that was the last time I had non-fermented milk, as it turned out my body stopped producing the necessary enzymes by then (I was in my early 20s).

I'm not lactose intolerant but I love plain Silk soymilk
I've tried other brands and they're a bit too bitter for my liking. Silk actually tastes like it should be really sugary, but it's not!

I like coconut milk - So Delicious unsweetened is very good.
this time, it really is a journey and not a destination

I have a friend and family member who are lactose intolerant and they both love rice milk, both in cereal and straight up. One likes the vanilla flavored, the other plain. Now, I don't know where it stacks up nutritionally in comparison with regular milk, but I know they both enjoy the flavor and my brother and his son drink it even though they aren't lactose intolerant because my sister in-law is and it's usually around the house and they enjoy it.

You can also try goat milk.

Weekends are hard for me too, but last weekend I made sure to come on here and record everything and that helped. I don't know if you record on weekends or not, but if you don't it may help. I ...

How below should one be from their RDI?
Just found the above mentioned Harris-Benedict Equation today in a Shape.com article. Searched for a topic and this thread was here. Going to adjust my caloric intake accordingly. Glad to see others ...
