A friend of mine is lactose intolerant and she's asked me for advice on some protein sources that are easy to digest (She has a host of digestion issues as well and just got out of the hospital so she's needing some basic protein).
Aside from blending everything with whey isolate, I recommended eggs as a relatively easy-to-digest form of protein. After that I found I was starting to run out of ideas.
Can anyone suggest anything?

Most easily digested protein sources that aren't milk...

I eat and thoroughly enjoy egg whites; for some reason you now think you are smarter than me. This makes me smile.

I'd say its probly best to stick w/ whole foods like eggs, chicken, fish, etc... Could also try soy protein or maybe rice. Also alot of people with dairy issues can still have yogurt/greek yogurt b/c of the live cultures in it. Sometimes it actually helps with digestion. So that may be worth a shot too. Just start slowly, maybe a yogurt every 2 days until you know if it aggrivates her stomach or not.

I know this is a very late reply, but...
First, talk to your doctor.
Second, steak, chicken, etc, are not as digestible as whey, soy, and egg protein. If she is lactose intolerant, the easiest one to digest is egg protein. Eat egg whites! Get egg protein powder. Soy beans, and soy protein powder are also good but have a little saturated fat and some cholesterol. Egg white and soy is the way to go!
