If you suffer from a lactose intolerance which can include symptoms like abdominal bloating, diarrhoea, and cramping, the Doc has tried and tested some of the many dairy-alternatives that are kind to the digestive system and come up with his top three.
1. Soy milk
Soy milk is a great alternative to dairy and a popular choice in coffee, tea and baking. It is naturally high in essential fatty acids, protein and fibre and is often B12 fortified.
2. Almond milk
Almonds are a great source of calcium, which is essential for healthy bones.
Try pouring almond milk over your morning cereal or with your breakfast smoothie. Pair it with one of the Doc’s protein powders for an extra protein kick.
3. Coconut milk
Our Docs absolutely love coconut milk and use it in a number of our purely delicious meals. It has a naturally creamy texture and has been proven to lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure and prevent heart attacks and stroke. Coconut milk is perfect for cooking creamy pasta sauces and curries, and you can now find a huge range of delicious coconut yoghurts and ice creams in stores.
The Doc’s menus are designed by a team of doctors and nutritionists and packed full of fresh, balanced wholefoods to ensure that you are getting all of the essential nutrients that your body needs and loves.
