I hear you momma. I am on a no egg, dairy and wheat diet for my 8 month old babe. I also avoid peanunts, treenuts, seafood and white fish. I can eat soy, which is lucky as I live in Japan. Have you tried the yahoo group POLFAC? Lots of great recipes and resources there.
My favorite snack is nobake cookies. Do you know the ones I mean, oatmeal, margarine, baking cocoa, milk, sugar and vanilla. It was pretty easy to adapt. The oatmeal is good for lactation.
I don`t know much about the formula, except that it is expensive.
I eat at lot of rice. Sometimes I just put spaghetti sauce on rice. Stir fries, salads, baked chicken, roasted veggies. We eat simply. I also make polenta or corn grits a lot. Corn chips are great with chili or stew or soup. I found once I made a list of meals it really helped me to focus on what I could eat rather than what I couldn`t.
Do you take a vitamin supplement? I found the B vits. to help with my supply.
Hang in there and keep us posted.
