So I'm a vegetarian, about a year and a month now. Guess what happened last summer! A good smack in the face in the form of good ol' lactose intolerance. Mostly gassy stuff, but that's pretty embarrassing when all I wanted was a mocha.

I started to use Lactaid, but I have some personal issues with taking a pill to be able to eat a food.

It seems that I have some sort of intolerance to soy milk as well. Every time I have anything that has soy milk in it (not baked, or cooked, but more like cereal or coffee) I have worse reactions that if it were whole milk.

I looooooove tofu, so it doesn't seem like a soy allergy is the problem. Anybody else have a similar problem?

Try using rice milk in your cereal and coffee.  Grin
I use rice milk in my cereal. It is a bit like skim milk. Less thick than soy milk but still delicous.
My dad is allergic to white milk. He can drink all the chocolate milk he wants and eat cheese but no white milk.
It might be the way it is made or something....

intolerances and allergies to soy are really common though. I became sensitive to soy when I was a vegetarian. I was eating it every day and it got to be a real problem after a while. I still can't eat it.

Almond or oat milk are also good alternatives.

Lactaid has a lactose free milk that's real milk. I like almond and rice milk too.

My bf had a lactose intolerance when he was a kid so he drank lots of soy milk. Now it's the complete opposite. He can drink tons of milk but not a bit of soy milk. Though tofu is fine now too.

Just bought a carton of almond milk. Used it in my oatmeal, and I'm pretty happy with it.

I think I'm going to make a batch of vegan brownies with it, considering I don't have to do school work any time soon (last day today.)

I have a lot of allergies, so I'm careful, especially with the almond milk. I've shown symptoms toward raw almonds in the past. I'm also allergic to ALL raw fleshy fruits. That includes cucumbers, but for some reason not tomatoes. Apples, peaches, pears, nectarines, cherries, zucchini, etc. Allergic to all of them, but if they're really well cooked I can generally eat them.

Totally did not know they made oat milk. Will definitely need to try that one.

How about lactaid milk?  They pull the lactose out for you?  I haven't tried it because I have an aversion to dairy milk's taste as well as the lactose intolerance, but it should solve the problem without having to take Lactaid when you have milk. 

And an FYI, Cabot cheddar cheese do not have lactose in them -- it "cures" out, or something. 

I've heard about almond milk, rice milk, hemp milk.

if you don't mind dairy, try goat milk. it's a lot easier to digest.
or drink almond milk. Cheesy

I have the same problem with milk and soymilk and could never get behind the rice milk for some reason, so I tried goat milk and it's awesome. The skim milk tastes nice and rich like whole cow's milk, and it doesn't bother my stomach at all. The only problem for me was finding a goat farm nearby (I've got issues with buying from a farm that doesn't take care of their animals so I try to just deal locally), but other than that I'm a happy camper. You should give it a go!
