I am getting ready to embark on a month long elimination diet with my family to remove dairy, soy, gluten, and eggs from our family's diet. My husband has suffered life long skin and joint issues. My son suffers from similar skin issues, as well as sleep issues and some hyperactivity. And now my newborn is showing signs of the same skin issues, as well as extreme gas and fussing. Basically, everyone in the house could possibly benefit from identifying foods we shouldn't eat. I've done a lot of reading, and have planned out a two week menu (that I can cycle again). I'm the kind of person who needs a plan for this to be successfully done. But my hitch is snacks. I like to snack, and as a nursing mama, I need to have snacks around.
Do y'all have snack ideas? Really, I'm stumped. The cookbooks I've found mostly cover dinners, and meals. I just need ideas of what I can grab when I'm hungry in the afternoon that goes beyond carrot sticks and peanut butter (which, btw, we buy just the freshly ground peanuts). I know that soy and dairy are lurkers, but any ideas. be they off the shelf safe snacks and brands, or things I can make ahead of time to have on hand, would be most appreciated!!
