Go to the Paleolithic diet page and follow the links on milk. Almost any
website geared toward vegetarians will give the same information.
Actually, if you read the American Dietetic Association's position

calorie counter that lists amino acids you will find that only a few
foods (like oil and sugar) are actually missing any.
