A little research shows that lactose-free milk is made by adding lactase to milk, which breaks down the lactose into simpler sugars. If the brand you are drinking is like that, it will have no difference on your nutrition.
Much of the important part of the milk after a workout comes from the fluids and protein, so it's not a waste. As for the sugar associated with the lactose, you could probably replace it with a piece of fruit which would also have other nutrients.
Beetroot (or rather the nitrites in it) works very differently from EPO. EPO increases the count of red blood cells (which are responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients. Nitrites on the other hand are converted by the body to Nitrous Oxide which in turn increases your blood's capacity to bind (carry) oxygen. In other words, the former increases carrying ...

Protein shakes are fine to drink without working out but this probably will not contribute to any muscle building if that is what you are looking for. It will probably add to your body weight in general. If you do work out, it is a different story where the protein will greatly contribute to your muscle building which of course will depend on how much stress ...
I can't say what is and isn't safe for you. You should see a nutritionist. However, in general it is safe to consume protein powder. If you believe you are not consuming enough protein, than that is exactly what the protein powder is for. Most people that feel they need the extra powder require more protein because they are working out frequently, but ...
Sure you can drink a protein shake even if you're not working out in a classical sense — like doing some heavy "macho-stuff" at a gym or something — but walking definitely counts as "physical fitness" type of exercise too. Proteins are just basic building blocks our body needs for normal functioning, and most certainly not just for the "reconstruction" of ...
