Churros are one of my favourite snacks, and the Spanish recipe is dairy and lactose free. Perfect, if not entirely healthy!
This is one of my favourite recipes. I’ve had it cooked for me a few times, and I was shown how to make it. But I finally got around to making it myself. Its quite easy to make, its lactose and dairy free naturally. (No swapping ingredients out!). Delicious Spanish omlette, the hardest part is flipping it over just before its done. You’ll need a deep pan, that is just smaller than a dinner plate to cook this in.
I tried the Five Guys in London last night, and while the burger wasn’t bad at all (I still prefer Honest Burger ) it was lucky I checked online first to see if they contained any lactose.
Right so you fancy some KFC and what can you have? I’ve seen people recreating KFC by soaking the chicken in milk first so I was curious and wondered if this might be the case with the genuine stuff as it doesn’t tend to agree with me, and hidden lactose might be the culprit. So I took a look at the following and it’s not as simple as you’d think, some chicken does, some doesn’t. So lets have a look at which items contain milk and lactose at KFC.
its quite a long document so I’m going to sum it all up here and do the hard work for you
Now do KFC chips contain milk? Weirdly they aren’t in the PDF so I had to look on the UK site – and it says they don’t contain milk (Do they not serve fries in other KFC’s around the world?)
And weirdly not all “creamy” items are out!
So what CAN you have?
What do you usually have?
Getting Calcium can be a pain if you’re lactose intolerant, and even more so if you’re totally dairy free. Luckily there are a few options out there to get calcium into your diet. According to http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Calcium-QuickFacts/ this is how much calcium you need per day. I’m not going to list how much calcium is in each food because, well really? Just eat the food in your diet where you can and you’ll be fine. If you’re taking calcium supplements cycle off them every month or so and don’t take them for a few weeks. It builds up in your system and can cause kidney stones.
So we had someone ask what type of Soy milk does Starbucks use?
I’ve asked around on this one, and it seems to be that in America they have their own proprietary blend of Soy milk made up just for Starbucks made by Silk.
In the UK it just seems to be Alpro Soya. We have a comment on this blog too saying that they are going to be trialing Coconut milk in some places too. I’d also love to see a Lactose free option too. What would you like to see from Starbucks when it comes to Lactose Free alternatives and which types of milk you see being used in your country.
