When I first found out AG had a milk protein allergy I had no idea what I could eat. I started going through the pantry and realized almost EVERYTHING in it contained dairy. I was instantly frustrated. I may have told hubs I was never going to eat again because I couldn’t eat anything. Dramatic much? Giving up breastfeeding wasn’t an option for me. So I had to find things that would satisfy my cravings that didn’t have dairy in them. Dinners were easy. I am able to find a wide variety of recipes that are dairy free or I adapt recipes to make them dairy free. Snacks on the other hand weren’t as easy. It took a while to find snacks that I enjoyed. Now, a few months later I have go to meals (which I post on Simply Made with Love), snacks and am eating healthier than ever before.
Here are some of my favorite snacks.
Honey Graham crackers are my favorite. I love them with peanut butter on top or by themselves. This satisfies my sweet tooth most times.
My favorite on the go snack is the Larabar. They are gluten free and most are diary free. My favorite kinds are chocolate chip cookie dough, coconut creme and peanut butter chocolate chip. I have one of these in my diaper bag at all times.
To satisfy my salty cravings, I will have tortilla chips. I pair it will corn salsa, guacamole or peach and mango salsa.
When I was pregnant (and sick all the time) I fell in love with veggie straws and chips. They are delicious and just as good as chips in my opinion.
My friend, Brittany introduced me to Boom Chicka Pop. I buy mine at Target. There are only 35 calories for a cup. And…they have a sweet (kettle corn) kind that is only 37 calories for a cup.
I also love cucumber and hummus tarts and apples with peanut butter and dairy free chocolate chips.
What are some of your favorite snacks? Any of them dairy free?
