Wheat & Dairy Free
 
Does anyone have any good wheat-free, dairy-free food suggestions? Either recipes or just foods they have bought that are easy to make? I have a 2 month old and have cut these out for breastfeeding and it seems to be helping, but I looking for some ideas. I just recently bought some rice flour. Haven't used it yet though. :stir: :carrot: :broc: :yoga:

I am VERY allergic to dairy. anaphylactic Although cannot think of recipes off the top of my head, I use Rice milk as a substitute. and the beauty of dairy free (other than cheese and sour cream of course) is you can use just about any liquid to sub. However, it does change the texture of bread, sometimes like sourdough is more course, but most everything else I make the rice milk works great. They have cheese and sour cream that is soy based, but alot of people that have dairy issues also have soy so I would be careful going that way. I have not done a ton with the rice flour so not much input there.

I love spelt, quinoa and kamut.
My fav quinoa recipe:
cook 1 cup of quinoa (just like rice - 1C quinoa 2 C liquid)
Chicken stock or veggie stock is great for the liquid

Combine and add fresh raw veggies:
brocolli, carrots, little green onion, peas, cherry tomotoes, olives
Dress with:
6 oz of your favorite oil I like a mix of olive, avocado and walnut
1 T good mustard
2T raw honey
some spike seasoning
2 oz raw apple cider vinegar
1-2T tahini
shake it in a jam jar and pour over the salad. It's super good!
It keeps in the fridge for a few days too.

Wow. These are great recipes and ideas. Thanks so much! The Natural Butter Cake from Victoria looks awesome. I have used the rice milk and almond milk, but can't use any soy since it seems to cause issues with baby too. Thanks for the website too. Very cool.
