27 Struggles That Lactose-Intolerant People Know All Too Well

October 01, 2013 2 min read

Whether you are dairy-free, lactose-free or casein-free...sometimes it just sucks. I personally went dairy/casein-free three years ago for health reasons and though my body is VERY happy I did so, I definitely have moments where it gets to me. There are some fantastic substitutes and replacements out there, and I fully support the overall health benefits of cutting such things out of your diet for a variety of reasons, but it's really hard to beat the real thing. So here are 27 Struggles That Lactose-Intolerant People Know All Too Well
