February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month and the National Dairy Council has been spreading the word about ways those with lactose intolerance (LI) can incorporate their favorite dairy foods into their diets.
Registered dietician and cookbook author, Toby Amidor and O2O blogger Jennifer Medeiros of Makobi Scribe along with the National Dairy Council will be chatting with us about the health benefits of dairy especially for those with lactose intolerance.
No doubt you know that dairy is part of a well-balanced and healthful diet. In fact, dairy foods have a unique source of several nutrients that help improve overall heath from our bones to our hearts. You could say it does it’s dairy best to keep you healthy!
One of the biggest misconceptions about being lactose intolerant is that you must avoid dairy. Dairy is still very important for those with lactose intolerance (LI) and there are key ways to make it part of the LI diet. We’ll be discussing all that and more during the #BeyondLI Twitter Party!
