Hummus is great. Eat it with veggies or scoop it up with roasted chicken, yum! It's great in a wrap with roasted red peppers too.

If you can do soy, Silk makes a really good soy yogurt. The other brands are all gross.

Hard boiled eggs make a great quick snack. If you can do eggs.

Bananas!

Green & Black's 85% organic chocolate bars are dairy and soy free, and delicious.

Re: Dairy elimination diet

I just started dairy free this week too as I think my son has a sensitivity. I'm also celiac so no gluten either. Make sure to read labels on those tricky things like crackers, pretzels, etc. A lot of them contain dairy as ingredients. Try Glutino products--many are dairy free. Also, I second whoever said hummus.

No change for my guy. This was a last ditch effort to help his colic and I am in it for 14 days, so I'm not stopping yet/ just had hopes I would see a difference by the 72 hour window.

You mamas that started this week/ any change on ur lo's?

Re: Dairy elimination diet

Read labels VERY carefully, especially on things that look "safe". Many companies have cross contamination. I have found dairy warning labels on things like tomato puree, canned beans, non-dairy creamer, cool whip, etc. Just because you think its safe, doesn't make it safe. Read every label. Even on things you've bought in the past that were safe. Sometimes they change ingredients/substitute ingredients without putting a "new/improved" label.

FYI, just because it may not be dairy doesn't mean it isn't something else. Only one of my 3 were sensitive to dairy, but the other 2 had an equally long list of allergens. You should keep a food diary to see if you can notice any trends. That's how we found my daughter's potato allergy.

I eliminated main sources of dairy but didn't check labels on boxed items. Kept it up for 16 days and noticed that ds still had the gas but was not in pain trying to pass it and he spit up even more but again showed no pain. I read another article leading me to believe it wasn't dairy maybe just over supply issues so I had one chocolate chip cookie (heavy on the chocolate) next day tons more spitting up. Next day one rootbeer float and followed by a day of painful gas. Guess the dairy was the culprit now I've had to start back at day one.

They produce a toxic substance as a defense mechanism to keep from being eaten, I think, but you might want to google it for better info . Most humans aren't bothered by it, but some are. I'm only just learning about them myself!
