sub for milk?

My girlfriend has many allergies to food and dairy is on the list. She is NOT lactose intolerant, she allergic to Whey, the protein in milk. I am a really skinny guy and would like to gain some weight in both lean mass and bodyfat. My personal, unsubstantiated estimate is between 4 and 7% bf. I have been drinking a ton of milk lately to try to gain some weight (think milk and squats but doing CF). She claims it is aggravating her allergy.
I need to know if there is anything else that is as nutrient dense as milk for a similar price because I need the weight and I can't stand her being mad at me all the time for drinking (milk) like a fish.

I'm easing myself into drinking Olive Oil. It is nasty!

Re: sub for milk?

Full-fat coconut milk, sneak some protein powder into it, blend in some berries. Voila.

Re: sub for milk?

Do you have a preferred brand of coconut milk? I will probably swing by the local health food store to see what they have.

Re: sub for milk?

if you go to a health food shop you will probably get ripped off..

get yourself to an asian store/market and just make sure that coconut milk and maybe water are the only ingredients.

Re: sub for milk?

soy milk, maybe? i have no idea if whey is in there though, but it`s a pretty simple sub.

If it does have whey, try eating fish and nuts in ADDITION to your regular eating. They`re both a good source of protein and fat, which both promote gain in lean muscle mass if you eat enough.

That`s my two cent

Re: sub for milk?

goya coconut milk, all the way. taste of thai has some kind of emulsifier in it to keep it from separating. the consistency of Taste of thai freaks me out.

Re: sub for milk?

I think Goya is nasty. They water it down like crazy, too. And any "lite" brand is going to be mostly water.

Thai Kitchen is great; it's got a little guar gum, but I personally haven't heard anything wrong with that (correct me if I'm wrong). David obviously doesn't like the consistency, but I think it's great.

Native Forest makes an amazing coconut milk (now my personal fav), and if you've got a Whole Foods nearby, theirs is great, too.

Re: soy... be afraid, be very afraid.

Could try rice milk, almond milk...

...and by the way, what does YOU drinking a ton of milk have to do with HER allergy to whey?
