Miley Cyrus has had enough. Lactose that is. The singer swore off dairy about two hours ago. She tweeted, “Worst tummy ache ever. No more lactose for me.”

PETA was there in a jiffy to help Cyrus with some dairy-free alternatives. They linked her to their website showcasing the many vegan milks, cheeses and ice creams available at the local grocery store. And none of them cause lactose intolerant people abdominal bloating, cramps, flatulence, diarrhea, nausea, borborygmi or vomiting.

Can you think of anyone who wouldn’t want to banish those symptoms from their life? Especially when the dairy alternatives have gotten so good over the past few years. Whether you’re having a Daiya grilled cheese, almond milk with your cereal or some So Delicious chocolate peanut butter swirl ice cream, we can guarantee you’ll stop lusting over what you used to eat and start indulging in your new found loves.

PETA also linked to one of their undercover investigations showing the cruelty that took place at a Land O’Lakes supplier in Pennsylvania. Many people believe dairy cows get off easy, but in some ways, they have it worse than cows raised for meat.

Any great dairy-free treats you’d recommend to Miley? Once her tummy starts feeling better, we’re sure she’ll want a treat to celebrate her new lactose-free life. I’m partial to Dr. Cow’s nut cheese…
