Re: Dairy Elimination
All three of my kids had milk allergies- the first two had blood in their poop and the third started out really gassy and fussy and then had the tell tale blood.
I love to bake, so I would substitute with soy milk and Earth Balance buttery spread (I bought it at Whole Foods). Also, vegetable shortening is great- I would use it for chocolate chip cookies and would use dairy free chocolate chips. My favorite dairy free recipe was Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls- I used soy milk and non-dairy spread and didn't make the frosting because I don;t like frosting. They are delicious!
