Lactose intolerant?

(post, Brianna Traw)

Last night we celebrated my son's 10th birthday!  We had a lovely Ben & Jerry's ice cream cake.  After eating what I considered a normal, full-sized slice, I experienced some symptoms I associate with lactose intolerance.  I've had a little question mark about my decreasing inability to digest fresh milk products.  I am open to becoming a personal diet detective.  I know there are a few other problems in my diet to consider (i.e., the sorbitol in sugarless gum).  A big part of me would like to go more toward veganism, but I still believe in the value of fermented and aged milk products.  In addition, I will continue to consume goat milk products, as they cause me no problems and I really enjoy them.
