Day 7

Finding healthy meals and snacks that are safe for milk protein allergy can be tricky! I have a picky eater on top of that element so my challenges are very complex. I think every FA parent starts the hunt for the hidden "bad" ingredients by narrowing down what is safe. I went through a label familiarization period when I read the labels and when I could tell it didn't have milk proteins, I happily fed anything to my girl. Then it dawned on me that just because she CAN eat something doesn't mean she SHOULD.

This food allergy has really brought our family back to the basics. Whole, natural foods that I select and cook for my family are the healthiest and they give me peace of mind of the ingredients. I have been trying to come up with fun dinners that are interesting to a 3 year old. My success rate needs improvement but I'm glad to say that she drinks her veggies from our juicer. The yummiest recipe I make is like an Orange Julius from the malls. It's 3 oranges, 3 apples, two sprigs of kale, and a carrot. It's super sweet and frothy just like the orange julius.  Share your favorite recipes here.
