Firstly of all this is long so sorry!!
So DS3 who is 2 months old (where does time go!) tomorrow developed some pretty severe eczema around 4-5 weeks of age. His poor little cheeks were red raw and it slowly spread to scaly patches on his arms and legs.
Knowing one of the most obvious triggers was dairy I immediately cut it out (well thought I did). Within a week there was improvement and now there's very little remaining.
I wasn't very successful in cutting it out. Who knew that some breads contain milk proteins! A host of other things as well plus just some genuine slap to the forehead in hindsight lapses - like puff pastry for example ok so dairy is now finally gone but only really for the last 72 hours. I'm hoping this will clear up the remaining eczema.
I need help though. I have been an ovo-lacto vegetarian since I was 17. I'm allergic to mushrooms, cannot tolerate tofu (I get severe and painful bloating after eating it). So I really need some help on dairy free alternatives from those who know. I noticed in another thread that @Sonja you don't eat dairy and I'm thinking @Elijahs Mum doesn't either?
What are the best tasting non dairy milks? Brands please if possible.
Any suggestions on meals I can make that are healthy, definitely quick and dairy/meat free? Eggs are fine. I've always used A LOT of cheese in my cooking - haloumi for burgers and salads, feta and ricotta for pasta dishes, cheese and crackers for a quick snack mid afternoon - you get the picture.
I'm living on salads, homemade felafels, eggs every way imaginable and roasted and steamed vegetables. I'm currently using nuttlex but wondering if there is something better - as I'm not really enjoying it (I love butter!).
