I am Ro, and I am mommy to 3 gorgeous girls. I am nursing my youngest (2 months old) and she has a dairy allergy.
(technically I do as well, but it's not that bad now that I am older) that all said. it is HARD to find things to eat when you can't have any dairy... I am hoping someone has some ideas, or a good website I can check out.
I'm not really interested in replacements, (I've heard about the different cheeses and such) but just different ideas.
I ate a lot of meat, veggies, and fruits. It isn't terribly hard to find premade things that don't have milk in them either. Breads, crackers, cookies, chips, salsa, etc are pretty easy to navigate. Deserts...I did soy based ice cream when I craved ice cream. You can also do popsicles instead of ice cream. When you have a recipe that calls for milk substituting it with something else is the easiest thing to do. Oat milk, coconut milk, and soy milk are pretty good for most things but I have found that oat milk and coconut milk work best with baking.
I haven't used that website before because Danny has so many allergies but it looks like it would be pretty helpful.
Milk was Danny's first allergy that we found (3 weeks old) but he now has 13 so trying to think back far enough to only eliminate milk is a bit tough... Replacing the milk ingredient is the best way to go about it though IMO...
Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.
