About a month ago, my second daughter was tested for food allergies after complaining for some time about her tummy hurting. The results came in with a dairy and egg allergy. I had gotten down how to cook without eggs and now adding dairy was another challenge. I realized how much of it that we were eating including butter, cheese, yogurt, milk, sour cream, etc....
I scoured Pinterest and Google for more ideas then kept a meal diary of my own to share with you all. I have found that the advice of others including my mother who also has a dairy and egg allergy has made it easier. And that some vegan products are really good and others are just not worth the money. I have been super happy with all the coconut milk products! I also prefer to use oil or vegetable shortening instead of the vegan butter. I just avoid vegan cheese although the vegan cream cheese isn't too bad. I hope this might help some of you who are also not Vegan but cooking for food allergies.
