Yes, goat cheese cheesecake. Having a lactose intolerant in one’s household calls for a little extra creativity when it comes to baking. Although this delicious dessert does contain some cream cheese, the addition of goat cheese greatly reduces to lactose level. I’m sure goat cheese cream cheese exists, as I just discovered goat yoghurt (umm “go-ghurt”) the other day, however our nearest grocery store has not yet stocked up on such exotic products.
It concerns me how food allergies are becoming more prevalent, and although I’m thankful for scientific advances which provide alternatives, I can’t help but wonder if by meeting quotas and tweaking genetics to create more robust vegetation, we’re harming our body’s delicate natural balance. Food for thought.
