Sugar Content of Milk! Really?

Using lactase just changes the sugar to a simple sugar or a monosaccharide.

Sugar Content of Milk! Really?

Milk has a sugar called lactose. Those people who cannot digest that sugar are lactose intolerant. Lactose is a disaccharide which sucrose ( white sugar) is as well.

hudson valley wedding - help!

We had my daughters wedding, with only 30 people, at the Hilton Westchester (in Rye). There was no view, but the food was really good, and there were several options for different rooms for the ceremony and reception. They were a pleasure to deal with as well.

If price, availability and calories were not a factor.... what food could you eat for every meal for the next 30 days and not get sick of it.

Pizza!

Weight Watcher Foodies - Groundhog Edition - February 2013 [old]

I looked at the recipe. I think it is closer to 11 points. To be sure, run it through the weight watcher recipe builder. A good rule of thumb is approximately 40 calories to a point.

First trip to NYC with kids in June need recs

Have you thought about taking them to the Bronx Zoo? You can go to Authur Avenue for dinner afterwards.

Both the kids and adults will love the zoo.
