Get your nutrient boost with these milk substitutes!

“Mumma, I hate milk!”

“Please take this glass away, milk is smelling bad!”

I am sure mom’s and kid’s out there can relate to this!

Being in this field, I too hate milk! I need to close my nose and drink the milk because I cannot ignore the nutrient boost in them.

But what if someone doesn’t have the enzyme to digest milk?

Let me explain this,

Some people start vomiting after drinking milk, some of them end up getting diarrhea.

That’s not because of ‘liking.

Milk has its natural sugar called as ‘Lactose’.

This sugar needs an enzyme called as ‘Lactase’ to digest in the body.

The people who end up getting vomiting or stomach upset after drinking milk do not have this enzyme in their body!

Those people are termed as ‘Lactose Intolerant’.

So, does lactose intolerant mean that they can never get good nutrients which otherwise we get from the milk?

Well, certainly not!

I have some most interesting recipes for the people who cannot digest milk and the people (Like me!) who cannot tolerate the smell!
