Having lactose intolerance doesn't mean you need to completely zap dairy foods from your diet. In fact, there are a number of ways to incorporate dairy foods that are lactose-free or low in lactose...and that's good news, since dairy foods, like Cabot's aged Cheddars, are excellent sources of calcium and protein. Cabot's team of Registered Dietitians has developed a 5-day meal plan to help people who suffer from lactose intolerance enjoy a calcium-rich diet without feeling deprived. *NOTE: This meal plan includes yogurt. While yogurt is tolerated by most individuals with lactose intolerance, please substitute with an alternative if necessary.
Note: This menu plan is based on an 1800 calorie/day diet (50% Carbohydrate, 20% Protein, 30% Fat). Each complies with the DASH Diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) and provides the following Exchanges for Diabetes Meal Planning: 8 Starch, 8 Lean Meat, 4 Vegetable, 4 Fruit, 3 Low-Fat Milk and 4 Fat. Exchange calculations are based on the American Dietetic Association Choose Your Foods: Exchange Lists for Diabetes.
