Any Way You Slice It

Lactose Intolerant? Any way you slice it, you can still enjoy dairy. Surprised? Allow me to explain.

Cheese is a delicious, nutritious dairy food that most lactose intolerant individuals can enjoy and eat confidently since many varieties naturally contain little to no lactose. That’s good news, since cheese is second only to chocolate as the top food Americans crave!

The key is to choose a natural cheese like Cheddar, Colby, Queso Blanco, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella or Swiss. These cheeses have the same nine essential vitamins and minerals and high-quality protein of the milk they were made from—without the lactose.

Slice up some something yummy that’s good for you at breakfast with this delicious Swiss Chard Tomato Quiche. For snack time on the go, mozzarella string cheese is convenient. Add a slice of your favorite cheese to this Laporte-obello Grilled Cheese Sandwich for the grown-ups or these Mini Toasted Open Subs for the kids. We’ve got dinner covered with a slice of these Beef Fajita Quesadilla Wedges that might become a new family favorite.

If you’ve cut out dairy due to lactose intolerance, you don’t have to keep missing out on the incredible nutrition and amazing flavor of cheese. Give cheese a chance, slice up some fun, and let us know which recipe you tried – we love hearing from you.
