Need to start learning how to make gluten/dairy free meals any suggestions?

Hi, my dd has a severe milk protein allergy and will be on a restricted diet. Which means no lactose, gluten or whey. So I am just trying to research making this kind of diet and would greatly appreciate any tips! Thanks!

  • Your health food store will be a great help too. And I've even noticed that WalMart has started stocking gluten free items. Red MIll makes mixes for cakes and pancakes, I think Betty Crocker or Duncan HInes has done the same...and Tinkyada rice pastas are really quite good.

    It will be pricier to cook this way, but I also notice that the brown rice pasta is a lot more filling.

  • Check out - she used to make gluten-free dairy-free all the time, and still makes all dairy-free and as little gluten as possible, for as little money as possible. She's got a lot of great stuff on her site.

  • If your DD only has a milk protein allergy, why are you avoiding gluten, too? Gluten is not a dairy protein, it's a grain protein (found in wheat, rye & barley; also oats, usually through cross-contamination during processing b/c technically there is no gluten in oats). If your child only has a milk protein allergy, it is not necessary to avoid gluten, too. Why make things harder on yourself than you have to?
