no dairy , no whey

about us


I am martha, a food blogger who currently lives in the UK… ( coming back soon to chicago, USA soon… fingers crossed ) I happen to have many friends with galactosemia, so I decided to find some ways to cook meals that they would be able to enjoy… It is now much easier nowadays with the new non dairy alternatives we have…. that was not the case 5-10 years ago… this blog is about recipes, restaurants that we try for those who might have to avoid milk, sugar ( galactose)

Of course this blog would be nothing without the former chief editor / writer of this blog : Bea, the mother of two girls who both have Classic Galactosemia. The four of them happily live in Portland, Oregon. she is originally from Germany and they travel to Europe regularly. They have been living in Portland since 2002 and both girls are native Oregonians :). 

We hope you enjoy this little blog about life, food  and hopefully learn a little about what it is like to live with Classic Galactosemia.
