Anyone Non dairy, Non soy, Non wheat? What to eat???

I can get through being non dairy if I use soy. But if I'm not supposed to eat much soy, what can I eat? I will eat fish and chicken, rice pasta, fruits and veggies. Just not sure how to replace soy/dairy (in cheese, yogurt, etc). Anyone else have suggestions?

  • Almond milk, hazelnut milk, hemp milk & rice milk are all options. You can also get rice-based cheeses and there are numerous other grains to eat besides wheat, like quinoa, buckwheat (there's no wheat in buckwheat), millet, amaranth, sorghum, teff and cornmeal. Plus there are nuts, beans & seeds that are available as flours & often used as replacement ingredients in GF foods. These include sunflower seeds, almond flour, sesame seeds, sweet chestnuts, carob, lentils, chickpeas and more. You can also buy coconut-based ice cream & yogurts.

  • sweetpeas3mom, if your children can drink lactaid, then they are not allergic to milk, they're lactose intolerant, which is very different from a dairy allergy. People with actual dairy allergies can have no dairy at all of any kind, therefore would not be able to have lactaid milk, which is regular milk with the sugar lactose removed.

  • Almond milk is wonderful...you may be able to make yogurt out it....also coconut milk is good and yogurt can be made from that, too.
