dairy free meal and snack ideas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I'm awful at navigating this site, so I apologize if the topic's been covered before. My husband and I loosely follow a NT type diet (soaked grains, raw dairy, grassfed meat and eggs, fermented veggies) but I'm 21 weeks pregnant and dairy has totally lost it's appeal. Not only that, but it seems to make my stomach queasy and my skin break out. I eat plenty of meat and good fats, and don't eat sugar (besides assorted fruits), so I don't think it's any of that.

 

Do you have any ideas for maintaining a healthy pregnancy-friendly NT type diet that is also dairy free? What are some good snacks and meals? Thanks in advance!

I love anything in guacamole or hummus.  So I would take anything you can tolerate and dip it into one or the other.  I also really love black olives.

 

Congrats on your pregnancy!!

Nuts and seeds are a nice substitute for dairy in many ways (high in good fats and minerals).

 

I love mixing a spoonful of raw tahini in my breakfast oats, for example.

 

I love nuts and seeds that are soaked and then dried on a dehydrator or 200F oven, especially almonds.

 

Raw almonds are often a help with nausea during pregnancy.

 

I LOVE gomasio (toasted sesame seeds ground with salt -- I eat a pile of it on my rice whenever it's around.

 

Seaweed is also high in minerals.  If you don't care for it, you can cook it in your beans or soups, and it will cook away to nothing.

 

I think if you're eating grains and vegetables and meats, that dairy free meals shouldn't be a problem?  Did you eat a lot of dairy before?

 

The best way to ensure a healthy diet is to eat lots of different kinds of (healthy) foods.  And dairy is by no means required for a healthy diet (quite the opposite, perhaps).
