Due to an on-set of thrush, I have been put on a Gluten and Cow's Milk-free diet.  My husband went GFCFSF over a year ago...but fell off the wagon months ago.  


Our kitchen is taking a crash-course in restocking with GF foods.  And that's fine.


But I need fats!  My milk and cheese are GONE!  And I'm STARVING! 


And I'm pumping for my 2mo old!


HELP please!

Coconut milk/oil. I use coconut milk in our smoothies (just 1/4 cup or so, but mixed with almond butter and maybe the honey it tastes like chocolate. The rest of our liquid is rice milk.)


Here's a great coconut milk soup recipe


Earth Balance buttery spread. There's 2 kinds, one you can bake with the other you can't so I just buy the baking kind. I get it at Trader Joe's, though Whole Foods and Sunflower carry it.


Nuts. We put cashews on top of pasta the way we used to put parmesan cheese on stuff.


Try this mac 'n "cheese" with gf pasta. I don't like the mustard, but that's just me.


You can buy coconut milk ice cream, but near us it's $6 a pint. Trader Joe's is cheaper, but it has cane sugar which we can't use. So I refrigerate a can of coconut milk (not lite) then mix it with a hand electric mixer for a couple minutes. Then add 2 T honey and 1 T vanilla. Put it in a small electric ice cream mixer. Or, since I don't have an ice cream mixer, I put it in a bowl in the freezer. Every 20 minutes I scrape the side of the bowl and mix it well. After 2 to 2.5 hours it's ice cream. Longer than that and it starts getting solid as most homemade ice creams do.


Then there's nut butters. We eat almond butter and all fruit jelly on rice cakes when we're out and about. I just throw everything with a knife and spoon into an ice chest with an ice pack.


Then there's almond butter brownies. You'll eat a whole tray of them.


Anything on is totally amazing. She mainly bakes with almond flour.

Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

Cocount oil/butter melted into your hot ceral, etc, eggs, nuts, nut butters and nut flours, nut milks, (make some nut balls/bonbons, 'lara' bars, etc. Elana's pantry has some good recipes!)  get coconut milk/cream in the can, that has the fat in it. Also, olive oil on all salads, veggies, etc.
