We aren't vegetarian, but this is an issue for us because of allergies! It makes it so hard! I'm just allergic to corn and soy, but my ds is allergic to dairy, soy, nuts (as well as all peas and beans), onions and potatoes.
We are blessed that for the first week, people from church will bring us food, but I can't really expect that they'll bring food my son can eat, so I'll still have to find him something.
Is lunchmeat "safe" while bf'ing, or are we supposed to avoid that then, too? I have to say I eat it sometimes. Gotta eat something!
I'll have some hardboiled eggs on hand. Not my fave, but quick, easy protein. Need to get some more tuna for the occasional sandwich or pasta salad. i loved baked potatoes with cheese. DH will probably grill a lot for us that first while. I also want to make up and freeze a bunch of breakfast burritos. Hopefully I can do that this week. Eggs, cheese, maybe some bacon, ham or sausage. Individually wrapped in wax paper so I can just warm it in the microwave. let's see...need more yogurt. Need more fresh fruits and veggies on hand, already washed, cut and ready to eat.
I'm prepared that i may have to cut out most dairy. It took a while to figure out my ds's allergy, but he always reacted to any dairy I ate and had excema from birth and spit up a lot. At least with this one, I know to look for it. Sigh... hopefully it's a non-issue.
