Not too long ago I got an email from someone named Brian asking if I was aware of goat milk products. Well, he wanted to make me aware of Goat Milk Stuff, a great family business that sells stuff made from goat's milk.
I bet you figured that out, already.
I had not heard of the family though I was and am aware of the fact that goat's milk is making the round of places online that promote good health and how to enjoy 'dairy' without the consequences if you're like me, lactose intolerant.
Let me rant a moment - I became or was diagnosed as lactose intolerant when I was pregnant with my daughter Chloe, the erstwhile powerhouse behind BlogPaws, these days. It was a shock to my system because... I was a Big...BIG milk drinker back then. Milk, ice cream, cottage cheese... oh yeah, they were as much a part of my diet as...well, water. I was in denial about my condition for a long time, and suffered mightily for it, let me tell you! The cramps, the indigestion, the ... other effects, made my life miserable and there were many days I refused to even venture out, worried that I'd be tempted by tasty food full of milk...
Yes, lactaid came into being around the same time, and I did learn to use it. But, it's not fool-proof. Not even today.
