    Hello, I just to be on here all the time, then life got in the way and the forum changed and I just didn't find my way here any more. 'Til now. My husband has been progressively finding a distaste for more meats. He doesn't want to eat beef (he will still eat ground beef, but that's about it. He doesn't really care for pork any more, and he has always limited himself (with rare exception) to skin off, bone off chicken breast. He likes turkey. He likes seafood (but I don't).

    Major problem is that he's a picky eater and lactose intolerant. He'll try lots of things, but is not often keen.

    We have access to a great selection of asian and mexican foods.

    If you can please help, I'm at a bit of a loss. I already learned how to cook without dairy and now this? I'm after easy, very tasty meals which can be taken for lunch the next day (not always, but it's helpful).

    You don't have to cook completely without dairy if he's lactose intolerant (a dairy allergy is something else entirely). Most hard cheeses such as cheddar have little to no lactose. I am lactose intolerant, and find that I have no trouble digesting these cheeses.
    For more info:

    I found that as my mother got older she also developed an aversion to meat. Perhaps your husband would enjoy some of these dishes:

    Lucy's Pasta (if you really don't want the parmesan you can omit it)
    Madras Egg Curry
    Greek Vegetable Stew
    Rumanian (Romanian) Ghivetch
    Rita's Recipe from Felina in Italy
    Simple Puttanesca Sauce
    Basquaise Sauce

    I use Lactofree milk and cream over here in the UK. I find it tastes much better than any of the soy products.

    Thanks for your tips. We do use lactose free milk/whipping cream/ coffee cream, soy cheeses and we do have a swiss cheese which is lactose free. He's got a extreme intolerance to it so we have to be very careful. I can substitute most dairy things now.

    Tthe above are a few of my recipes created for either vegetarians or those who wish to eat healthily and have something special. The egg salad is delicious with veganaise or similar equivalent, and the black bean toss requires no cheese if you don't want it.
    I've also made a burrito with black beans and mashed sweet potatoes that can be baked ahead or frozen and then baked. I don't have that recipe posted but if you want it, I can write it up.
