has anyone experienced more intense stomach problems after cutting out dairy?
I ditched all milk products from my diet but then I caved and had some creamer in my coffee (which is technically a "milk derivative") while taking lactaid, and let's just say my toilet is my new best friend.

I’m looking for your favorite dairy-free recipes for... Read more
