Emeka is a friend of mine who is lactose intolerant. For people who don't know, Lactose intolerance in lay man's terms means he can't eat anything dairy or his days would be spent in a toilet.
For someone who should be avoiding dairy like the plague, my friend Emeka embraces them. Every day it's one thing or the other with dairy milk as its key ingredient, and whenever I warn him, Emeka responds by saying he's living life on the edge.
Yes dear you're living life on the edge...... Of your toilet dear. You're taking a risk all in the name of YOLO and maybe it's not as serious as I'm painting it out be.
"You worry too much. Besides how can I completely avoid milk or milk products?" He asks with a shrug.
I know many of you are silently asking the same questions so I'll share with you my response to his question. "You can't" I deadpanned and just as he was about to give his victory shout I interrupted "But you can take low fat milk or non dairy milk. I'm talking about milks such as:
Soy Milk; Soy milk is made with soybeans and often contains thickeners and vegetable oils to improve taste. It typically has a mild and creamy flavor and works best as a substitute for cow’s milk.
Almond Milk; Almond milk is made with either whole almonds or almond butter and water. It has a light texture and a slightly sweet and nutty flavor.
Yes people there's such a thing as Hemp milk. Hemp milk is made from the seeds of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. I know what's running in your mind but it's strictly for health purposes.
So there in stead of killing yourself daily and going through hours of diarrhea and vomiting, you have alternatives to choose from.
