So add that to the list;
Oh and I have yeast overgrowth so we're eating very little bread or sugar.
I'm just at a loss. Meat, veggies, & brown rice are the only things I can think of.
I'm cross posting this in Nutrition & Good Eating.
ok, we've been free of that stuff and more for 5+ years now and its so easy anymore but I've had 5 years to figure it out. First get used to cooking/baking, the hardest is going egg free. I have a cooking egg free file some where if you want it, I never cared to use the ener-g egg replacer, in fact I thought its a pretty crappy sub for eggs. For dairy you can drink rice milk or Dari-free (potato based) and for baking your going to have to figure out what works for you. I use rice milk in dd's baked good just fine but I'm allergic to rice and never had luck using Dari-free in baking but found coconut milk worked great and it added a ton of calories and fat to my baked goods (I actually find it at the $1 store).
Giving up cheese in dishes can be hard, to make it easier I found adding more herbs and spices really helped, for example I loved cheese on my black bean taco's but like her sister, Lilly doesn't tolerate dairy so I had to give it up last week and to replace the cheese I added cilantro so instead of plain old black beans, onions, cheese and sour cream with salsa I added the cilantro in place of the cheese/cream and made fresh salsa (or bought it from the Mexican restaurant down the street).
For soy, well, not a big deal if your cooking from scratch, if your missing peanut/soy nut butter there's a number of other butters such as Sunbutter which tastes pretty good. I think its made from Sunflower seeds if I remember right.
If you would like to write down say a weeks worth of what you would normally eat we can suggest what to eat in place of it without messing with your meals to much.
